Matt Dubspun started DJing in the late 1980’s like most of his contemporaries. He is quite different though. He had a weekly radio presence while he was in high school and what sets him apart from other DJs are his sets/blends, which are often described as a hypnotic-vibe. In the early 2000's he started his own radio show called Vibenotic at WOUI 88.9FM (now WIIT 88.9FM) where he spun Deep House and Techno live alongside many Chicago based legends.
Matt is still resisting the digital DJing wave. He is one of the few Chicago DJs that still perform solely on vinyl. “I think it’s important as a DJ to continue to support the record stores and artists that release vinyl because it’s part of the underground ecosystem.” Record stores are the social network for DJs. "You get to meet new people that share a common interest, make friends and most importantly find new music." “Without record stores and labels who release vinyl, music and DJing won’t be the same at least not for me.”
In 2004 Matt became more focused on music production and started making tracks and releasing them on his label Vibenotic Recordings. Like using turntables he uses hardware in his music compositions. He uses an Elektron MachinceDrum SPS1-UW, a DevilFish modified Roland TB-303 and a variety of other synths.
Presently Matt is releasing music on other international labels under a variety of monikers in addition to Vibenotic.
