MATT dorgan PROJECT is a Métis multi-instrumentalist hailing from Ottawa, Canada. Described as “Jazzy Electronic Fuzz” by Alan Cross and “Like Kenny G on MDMA” by Montreal’s One Man Band Festival. Extreme DIY is the vision: Looping, mixing and DJing 5 different instruments by himself live. Think Bonobo meets NIN.
