Fred Matters’ road to the turntables began over twenty years ago when as a child he realized his true passion in life was music. He taught himself to compose and produce musical scores and then went on to study at the Musicians Institute, where he tailored his studies to jazz and classical and learned to play everything from the piano to the timpani.
After graduation, Fred Matters joined the nightclub scene where he has over 15 years of nightlife experience having run some of the most successful promotions in Hollywood, CA. His extensive musical background always kept him very intrigued by DJs and their adaptability in different venues. This intrigue lead him to move out from behind the velvet ropes to behind the turntables.
In the past few years, Fred Matters has been featured on Hollyscoop TV having performed at exclusive events for Sundance, SXSW and The Grammys. Recently, he was hand selected to perform at Heidi Klum’s Annual Halloween Party hosted by TAO Las Vegas. He makes frequent appearances at Marquee, TAO and numerous Hollywood hot spots and is championed by industry heavyweights such as LMFAO, David Arquette, Will I AM, Nick Cannon, Snoop Dogg, Tribe Called Quest, Macy Gray, George Clinton and Dave Navarro.
His deep appreciation and understanding of music coupled by his ability to “read a room” sets him apart from his peers. For Fred Matters, djing is not just a career but a way of life.
