MATT GILL - PRODUCER/DJ - UK
From bedroom anonymity to the front lines of British electronic music in little over six years: Matt Gill is a true rising star.
As a producer, Matt has released on labels Groove On, Play Digital, Moov Records and Ritual Music. His tracks have featured on Capital FM, Radio MK and Unity Radio in the UK, and his third release, Miscommunicate, was championed on Kiss FM and the Resident Advisor charts by Ukrainian techno hero Vitaliy Spartaque. Matt’s distinct production style draws influence from all corners of the house-electro-techno spectrum, with angular snippets of melody carried to the heart of the dancefloor atop dark, pounding bass lines and galloping synthetic drum tracks. He lists Ali Shirazinia, John Digweed, Adam Walder and Joel Zimmerman amongst his principal influences.
As a DJ, Matt has played at London superclubs Ministry of Sound and Pacha, legendary Leeds sweatbox Stinky’s Peephouse and numerous other nightclubs, bars and festivals across the UK. He’s featured at clubnights Closure (London), Deepjam and Carousel (Leeds), and he’s been billed alongside Fedde Le Grand, Kissy Sellout, Meat Katie and Utah Saints.
With all this already to his name, Matt is rapidly gaining support and respect, both as a heavyweight producer and a talented DJ. His output in 2011 is stronger than ever.
