Its Thursday and that can only mean one thing… it’s OMC Mix Day!
Shut Up and Dance is probably my favourite label of time, and set out the blue print for much of the great drum and bass / jungle music that was to come out of the UK during the 90’s. Hope you enjoy and if you don’t know these artists, you need to check.
Matt started DJing on a mobile disco 25 years ago, so he well qualifies for a place on OMC! From there he moved to playing at legal and illegal raves at the start of the acid house era in his home county of Essex and then on to London. Matt has also played at some of the legendary nights and venues of the era such as Labyrinth, Limelight and The Rocket.
From rave and early hardcore he progressed to drum and bass, and enjoyed success as an artist on certificate 18 records, collaborating with Rupert Parkes (Photek) and Skanna. He also continued DJing at nights such as Logical Progression, Balance at Plastic People, as well as stints abroad in Iceland, Belarus, Italy and the USA.
