As a child, Matty Harris aka The Narcoleptic, developed a keen sense for music. At the ripe age of 10, he acquired a cassette recorder. This cassette recorder was the focal point of his entire lively hood at this point in time. He had the ability to record all of his favorite songs on the radio. He would dissect and examine each song in order to understand why it made him feel they way he felt. He listened to everything from Classic Rock to Soul Music. While visiting his cousins, who lived on the south side of Chicago, he was introduced to House Music. A local college radio station hosted a show dedicated to this raw, new sound forged in the streets of Chicago. The radio host was T Chablis. Matty could never tune in to his show from the suburbs, so every time he visited his cousins he would make it a priority to listen to the show and record it. He was enamored by this music. His eagerness to learn more stoked his internal flame of curiosity.
After poking around his cousins crew, he stumbled upon a fellow who had some House Music records which he had no interest. Two copies of "Come to me" -Gwendolyn, "You Ain't Really Down- Status IV, "Girls Girls"- Solo and "Funk You Up"- Jesse Saunders. Not long after, Matty was playing records in his bedroom every day. It was 1986, and House Music was taking control. It wasn't until he moved from the suburbs to the city of Chicago in the early 90's that he found his true calling in the underground scene. Finally, after a lot of hard work and dedication, he earned himself a residency at smart bar's Tuesday night romp,"Pump",where his dear friends Derrick Carter, Miles Maeda and Terry Martin also played host to many up and coming All stars. When"Pump" came to a conclusion, Matty became a part of The thriving urban club scene. With residencies all over the city of Chicago, playing with top players such as Derrick Carter, D.J. Sneak , Mark Farina, Diz, and the list continues.
Currently, Matty's commitments are to his studio and regular weekly gigs in Chicago. He has released compositions as The Narcoleptic on Classic Music Co., Kwench, Jump Recordings, Get Up Recordings, Green House, Planet Scratch, and Leftroom . Not to mention a slew of tracks for Loveslap as Matty Harris ,and also as Evolving Doors, featuring Hawk.
