Recent Happenings

I've been a little quiet on here for the last month or so, I had a lot going on! So here's a little catchup on some of the best bits I neglected to tell you about...A definite highlight of the last month or so was djing two nights in a row at the infamous Jazz Cafe in London - First up was a set supporting one of hip hop's all time greatest MCs, the legendary Big Daddy Kane, pictured with me above! He gave an incredible show as always, and the event presented with me with a rare opportunity to play a load of my favourite 80's & early 90's hip hop tracks, including a best of Juice Crew set....

Dj Matman – 7" Mix Vol.1

7" Mix Vol. 1 by Dj Matman on MixcloudAfter rocking a couple of sets playing exclusively 7" vinyl at their 'Digga Please' parties, DJs Shepdog (Nice Up) and Kombine (Jazz Cafe) officially inducted me into the crew - so it's only right I represent with a mix based on my recent live set for them! Expect pure block party vibes from this one: Classic Hip Hop laced with Soul, Funk, Disco, B-Boy breaks, Reggae/Dancehall and 90's RNB, No FX, no multitracking, just a crate of crackly 45s mixed, scratched & juggled (with a couple of sneaky edits so you don't have to hear my records skip!). The cover image is composed of photos of every record played, displayed in the...

DJ Matman – 10 Minute 80’s B-Boy Megamix

10 Minute 80's B-Boy Megamix by Dj Matman on MixcloudI was recently commissioned by Urban Edge Promotions to create this 10 minute long mix of classic and well-known 80's B-Boy tracks for a series of forthcoming live shows - I ended up going in on it pretty hard, every track on here is re-edited or remixed in one way or another! As usual with my mixes there is also a fair bit of juggling & scratching involved, but not too much as the focus here is on the dancers. If you are a bit of a music geek you may notice I used the break from the UK hip hop classic 'Untitled' by Hardnoise in my remix of White Lines...
