Gavin Lynch discovered a love for electronic music at a very early age. An avid vinyl collector and dab hand in the kitchen, he took a job as a part-time chef to help feed his vinyl and music addiction. With a pair of skilled hands, he took the jump into sound engineering and music production — a self-professed techno nut who is equally skilled in the studio and the kitchen. Matador is cooking up a storm in the techno world, with tunes for a host of respected labels like Trapez, Perc Trax and M_nus, so we badgered him about his studio techniques...
