Matthew Dear talks new album Black City and explains Totem

Matthew Dear has been consistently producing quality dance music since the 90's and is regarded as one of the most cutting edge electronic producers and DJs around. His latest release "Black City" has been met with international critical acclaim. It's dark yet danceable.

Matthew is on tour with a live band in support of the album and got a minute to talk to MusicVox host Jesse Menendez about the concept behind album, how it is to front a live band, as well as his unique approach to selling music and connecting with his fans. (Hint: It has something to do with a Totem)
