Born in the North East and brought up in the South West, Matt Black has been DJing and making music for around 25 years. He moved to London in 1991 where he discovered his love for dance music and raving and even though his original love was Hardcore and Drum and Bass it was upon hearing a John Digweed mix tape back in 1994 that he realised his musical calling in life.
Matt began by playing in pubs and bars around South London before getting his first club gig in 1995. Since then he has played for a number of London’s biggest underground promoters as well as Empathy in Bristol, Riff Raff in Middlesbrough and The Gallery in London where he warmed up for none other than Dave Seaman, he has also performed in countries such as Poland and Mexico.
Last year Matts track 1994 was signed to the legendary Perfecto Black and was even played by the one and only Paul Oakenfold on his Planet Perfecto radio show numerous times, Matt has also had releases signed to labels such as Bonzai Progressive, Pro B Tech music and others and his remix of Cameron Mo’s Faultline even made it on to the main Perfecto label last year
Matt is currently working hard in the studio and has many forthcoming projects so keep watch out for them.
