|Mat The Alien|
NORTH AMERICAN AVAILABILITY
Let’s clear something up. Technically Mat is not an Alien. He grew up not too far from Manchester (u.k.) and moved to Canada in the mid 90’s to follow his snowboarding addiction which he stumbled upon during a trip to Austria. He has been dj’ing since 88 and was inspired to play the drums by local bands such as (The Stone Roses and Happy Mondays) after being introduced to the d.j. culture of the acid house warehouse party’s he was hooked on blending beat’s on the turn tables. He further developed his style while working in his family’s record store(opened by his dad at age 4.
It wasn’t until after he arrived in Canada that his turntable abilities suddenly jumped to new heights. Heights later described by Knowledge Magazine as, “Awe inspiring & Some next level shit.” Mats music selection appeals to a wide variety of crowds, spanning many genres from Hip-Hop,funk,dance-hall,break-beats,drum & bass,rock, and more. He learned this from dj’ing in Whistler to varied crowds of people visiting from all over the world. Mat has toured across the globe at events of up to 10,000 people,pioneering regular club nights in Whistler, Vancouver and held down a bi-weekly night in Las Vegas at eye candy (mandalay-bay) for 8 month’s. He has performed alongside most of his favorite acts,some were down to earth others not. With crates as deep as a black hole he has combined world class mixing and scratching skills and is considered “Really Good” by anyone who sees him.
