Biography

French-Canadian DJ/Producer Matt Cerf first made his mark in dance music as one-fourth of the group

Second Sun. In 2001 his track, Empire, caught the attention of mega producer/dj Paul Van Dyk and was

immediately signed to Vandit Records landing the group instant notoriety and a spot on Quebec’s own

Music Plus.

After moving to Los Angeles, however, Matt and the group parted ways. Matt took off in a new direction with

originals like “Clearwater”, “Bent”, and “Miami Vice”.

In 2004, he met producer/dj partner Shawn Mitiska and the two started remixing tracks for other producers,

including Serge Devant, Eelke Kleijn, and Lange. In 2005 Matt met singer/songwriter Jaren and the two

joined forces with Shawn to create masterful originals like: “Light The Skies”, “Saved Again”, “Me & You”,

“Down To You”, and “Let Me Breathe”.

“Light The Skies” (Baroque/Armada), which caught the attention of Armin Van Buuren thanks to the pumping

Electrobounce remix by Retrobyte, climbed to #2 on the Dutch Dance charts and was the second most requested

track on Holland’s SLAMfm radio station. Besides being listed on nearly twenty different compilations, the track

ultimately rated as one of the top tracks of 2007! Since then, every track released from the trio seems to have

made a mark on the industry. “Saved Again” was given the title of #2 track of 2007 by Armin Van Buuren!
