Leave Luck to Heaven is the first full-length studio album by American DJ Matthew Dear, released under his birth name.[1][2] Released in late 2003, the album’s fusion of pop and minimal techno propelled Dear to international success.[citation needed] The album's single "Dog Days" became a bestseller for the Spectral Sound label, and a favorite of DJs like Richie Hawtin. The album is named after the rough Japanese-to-English translation of "Nintendo", a popular video game company.
