A.K.A. Advanced Dance Music
A MUSICIAN FROM THE START. Matthew Cerf was born in Ottawa, Canada and grew up in the diverse culture of Montreal where he lived for 24 years.
Music sparked much curiosity for Matthew as a child. At age 8 he picked up his first instrument, the violin. For the next eight years Matthew would develop his prodigal musical skills playing the violin, piano, and saxophone. Seeking to expand his musical range, he self instructed the electric guitar, which he continued to study and play for another five years. It was during his studies at Mcgill in Montreal that Matthew discovered his true passion: electronic music.
In 2000, he and three co-musicians formed a band, SECOND SUN. After coming up with the concept of their first song, “Empire”, Matthew’s perseverance paid off and SECOND SUN was signed to VANDIT RECORDS (Paul Van Dyk). In June of 2001 SECOND SUN made a guest appearance on “Music Plus”, Quebec’s equivalent to MTV. SECOND SUN moved to Los Angeles in September that same year to pursue their career. In 2002, Matthew slipped out of SECOND SUN, decided to go solo, and took on the name “Advanced Dance Music”.
Hard at work, Advanced Dance Music is dedicated to producing high quality progressive house and trance. He is currently working with two professional vocalists, heard on his latest tracks.
Matthew also spends his time mixing in clubs in the Los Angeles area.
