Matt Prehn is definitely a name on the rise in house music circles…
With an unwaivering love of dance for the past 13 years he has made his mark as a DJ, producer, live act and is currently working hard to bring the sounds of his record label to the masses.
Over the years Matt has played most of SA’s top clubs and has held down residencies at Relish pushing deep grooves every Friday/Saturday night and Underground Mix Sessions – a more upbeat affair situated in the heart of Cape Town’s bustling Long Street. Playing a mix of deep house, house, tech & more soulfully swayed sounds he has played alongside Roland Clark, Jazzanova, Stu Hirst, Kintar, Will Saul, Camouflage and a host of top SA jocks.
As producer Matt works under numerous guises, often collaborating with vocalists and most notably as part of the live house 3 piece – Bang Bang.
The band has been featured in iDJ Magazine (UK), opened for Roland Clark, toured South Africa extensively and released music on renowned labels such as Lost My Dog, Kolour, Myna, Llama Farm, Shrewd, CHFM, Open Bar and many many more.
Solo productions have been aired on Baker Street, Bounce House, Aspect Audio, Headtunes, Hub City, Onethirty, Tango and his own imprint Oh So Coy Recordings with support coming from The Timewriter, Mark Farina, Giom, Luciano, Agnes, Asad Rizvi and more.
September 2011 saw Matt’s remix of Luv Boutique – Stay With Me reach the #1 spot on Stompy’s deep downloads and with forthcoming releases on Pole Position, Drizzle Music as well as OSC there is no sign of slowing.
Oh So Coy Recordings was started early 2010 and has since become one of the rising deep house labels to watch with DJ’s Nacho Marco, Giom, Grant Nelson, Tommy Largo and Andy from the Inland Knights all giving their nod of approval. The mission for the label is to bring to the fore the multitude of talented SA producers (as well as other friends worldwide) and to carry on pushing quality deep house music.
