Fast Nasty aka Matt Keaton has the energy of a 5 year old child on sugar .Hes always hyped up and ready to go and this makes his sets even that much more fun to witness. Its hard to attend any show in Knoxville without seeing the 26 yr old producer when hes in town. Born in Dandridge, TN 20 mins east of knoxville he’s been attending shows since the young age of 14. " I made my brother take me to my first show when i was 14. We told my mom we were just gonna play video games at his house but he took me to see some hardcore bands at this little spot in west knoxville.It seemed like all my friends were playing instruments so i got my first guitar at 14 and played in bands with my friends all the way through college. I got a job at a local radio station with various duties but one was editing commercials in the studio", he said." And thats really where my first encounters came with making all digital music. I would get bored working late shifts on the weekends and i started fooling around with drum loops and my guitar then i started adding vocals and weird samples" he said. " Then after meeting local producer Spooky Jones his whole approach changed. " Spooky really helped me so much when i started using Ableton. He helped me translate my ideas into sound design and to really understand the art to creating your own sound from scratch." Fast forward a few years later and Fast Nasty has played alongside some of the biggest names in the industry like Starkey, Borgore, Joker, The Glitch Mob, Big Gigantic,Tipper, Mindelixir, Lazer Sword, Two Fresh, Conspirator, Future Rock, and many many more. Keep your eyes on this guy 2011 holds some big things for him.
