Biography

Matt has always had a keen interest in music. From his early teens he would spend all of his pocket money on the latest mix tapes and records. “I would take my new records around to my friend’s house and mix them on his decks as I couldn’t afford any at the time”. It wasn’t long before Matt had a set of his own technics and started perfecting his skill of mixing.

Inspired by early trance legends such as Tiesto and Paul Van Dyk, Matt wanted to start producing his own tracks as well as DJing. “I used to get my hands on any software for making music I could, it didn’t matter how basic, I loved it”.

Also at this time one of his mix tapes had caught the eye of a resident DJ and promoter for the renowned night Peach. After a few one off sets Matt was given his first residency at only 18 years of age.

From here Matt has gone on to play at other respected nights such as Hotdog, Goodgreef, Passion, Dejavu, Fully Charged, Eat your words and more…

At these clubs he has played alongside international DJ’s such as Taucher, Guy Ornadel, John 00 Flemming, Fergie John Kelly and Scott Bond to name but a few. So Matt is no stranger to playing high profile sets.

Matt has continued to improve his song writing, production and engineering techniques to a high standard with confirmed support from Gatecrasher resident Nick Riely, GodsKitchen resident Jon O Bir & Les Hemstock. His current and future tracks look set to do well.
