Biography

Matt’s approach to DJing is much like his outlook on life. No-nonsense, straight to the point, fun loving and a huge emphasis on party!

He doesn’t get bogged down by pretentious genre labeling. His large record collection has always picked from different aspects of the dance scene. Like most DJs, over time he has found his direction musically and that path has currently landed him in a position where he can mix up tough dirty house, breaks and techno into many mini musical journeys.

Depending on the crowd he can play to suit. If booked for warm up sets he gently eases the dance floor in, teasing with tracks that sit on the fence between peak time and warm up. If however he’s booked for a main set, he can belt it out with full on house, breaks and techno, all mixed in the way that takes the clubbers levels and emotions up and down throughout the set.

Hightlights so far have seen regular visits to Hotdog playing party breaks and chunky house music. The past 2 years have seen him push his own night, SpaceAge, into the limelight, booking the best in underground Nu-nrg DJs along with some strong residents. Other events include Sundissential, Sacrilege, Generation-X, Cloud 9, Missin (resident) and more.

Matt has recently turned to production to make his sets even more complex and exciting. By creating minimal loops and drum tracks, he can change the rhythm of the set by layering these tracks in the mix. This style of mixing keeps his sound fresh and innovative, but most importantly keeps the dance floor fully charged!
