Mat P. Jarvis is an electronic music artist from England who has released one full-length CD and several other tracks on the Em:t Records label under the name Gas. More recently, Jarvis released material under the name "Jarman".

Mat Jarvis' work as Gas is often mistakenly credited to an alias used by German electronic musician Wolfgang Voigt. Although the two artists sound somewhat similar, they are separate and distinct musical entities.

His album Gas 0095, which includes "Microscopic", "Experiments On Live Electricity" and "Discovery", is noted for the inclusion of the track "Timestretch", which is rumoured to be a complete four-minute track shrunk down to one second.

Em:t Records went out of business before the follow-up album Gas 2298 could be released. There has been a version of the album circulating the internet, but this has been confirmed as fake.
