Biography: Previous bookings:

A regular DJ on the underground party scene for a long while now, along with his regular club slots, he has a tendency to play harder, faster, and longer, than the rest. Always the last one to leave a party, slamming funky bass lines, into dark beats, to create the _Evil Circus_ sound he is known for. New productions, and remixes for 2004 are available soon. Along with cohorts, D.A.R.Y.L, and Simon Heartfield, they combine to make Phase 2. Resident DJ and also the Contracts Agent, and Artist Manager, Matt is working alongside the best in the business, with headliners for this year chosen from a list of Phase 2_s top ten DJ_s, an enviable position for most promoters. Matt_s passion for the music, and the scene, knows no bounds. A regular at all the best club nights up and down the land, from the Orbit, to Atomic Jam, to Lost, and back again, not to mention being brought into it all via Club UK, Sterns, Final Frontier, and Geushky. He is always keenly aware of his rock, hip-hop, and punk influences, and this is evident through his frenetic, energetic mixing style. A Festival Junkie, during the summer, to be found taking in all the smaller, underground parties, as well as the more commercial affairs. Always on the go, always making a noise, and always on the edge of a new sound.
