Matthew Dear - What's In My Bag? Amoeba Music

We were happy to have DJ, producer, and electronic artist Matthew Dear visit Amoeba Hollywood for a What's In My Bag? episode. The father of three children, Matthew was primarily shopping for albums to play at home. "I try to show [my kids] a lot of stuff that my dad showed me," he said, picking up LPs by Joni Mitchell, Townes Van Zandt, and the King of Western Swing, Bob Wills.

Born in Texas, Matthew Dear became inspired by the sounds of Detroit techno after moving to Michigan as a teen.

Around this time, he began performing and releasing records under aliases, including False, Jabberjaw, and Audion.
