Concord Dawn

Concord Dawn is New Zealand’s most successful drum and bass act. Since forming in 1999, Evan Short and Matt Harvey have released a multitude of albums and singles, as well as founding their own record label, Uprising Records. Concord Dawn continues to release music and DJ across the globe.

Originally a production duo comprising Evan Short and Matt Harvey, Short left in 2008 to focus on other studio and band commitments while Harvey continues producing and DJing under the Concord Dawn moniker.

Matt Harvey: after 10 years living and working in Europe, it was time to come home in 2016. “I was stuck in a holding pattern … it was fun, but it wasn’t anything new.”
