Vancouver-born, Berlin-based electronic music ace Mathew Jonson has been around for so long now that it’s easy to take him and his distinct creations for granted. And we really shouldn’t. Thanks to a childhood surrounded by music of every ilk, from folk, blues and jazz to classical and B-boy electro, plus time spent jamming with like-minded souls in Cobblestone Jazz and the Modern Deep Left Quartet, Jonson’s unique brand of club music runs the gamut from hard-edged bass music to ethereal techno and everywhere in between.
