Repair + DawnCA
Basement synth programmers, Matt and Mark Thibideau started developing their sound in the late '80s. Evolving from the days of industrial music, their sound changed into new genres. They parted ways to work on their own projects as Altitude (Matt) and Crave (Mark). Reuniting in 2001, their first collaboration, a marriage of minimalism and deep house, was released on Sub-Static Records (Germany). In performances, Repair balances soothing vocals with intricate synth programming, using hardware samplers, analog synthesizers, modulated percussion and live manipulation. After many live performances, they have fine-tuned their sound and started to work with Dawn Lewis, whose vocals add structure to the minimalism they have created.
