DJ Matman – The Hotline Mix [Stream / Download]

The recent success of 'Hotline Bling' had me thinking about all the other good phone-related tracks out there, and before I knew it I had a fresh mixtape on my hands! At just over an hour long 'The Hotline Mix' mix squeezes in close to 50 Hip Hop, RnB, Disco, Funk & Reggae bangers from artists such as Biggie, Tupac, Nas, Swindle, Jill Scott, Bounty...

New video! A double-time scratch routine from my latest mixtape

  Here's a short double time scratch routine as performed halfway through my latest mixtape 'Old To The New Volume 0.5: The Warmup Edition' - fresh remixes of old classics laced with the occasional bit of turntablism. The track you hear is a dope remix of Soho's 'Hot Music' by the very talented and amusingly named Orijanus! Old To The New Vol.0.5 will be available...

DJ Matman – Old To The New

Old To The New by Dj Matman on Mixcloud Anyone familiar with my output so far will know I have a lot of love for the old school! But I don't just do throwback sets - I can also be found playing a lot of modern music of various styles, so to rep that I decided to bridge the gap with this compilation of modern...

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 – The New Jack Swing Mix

The New Jack Swing Mix by Dj Matman on MixcloudIn the summer of 2012 I was invited to dj at the Chocolate Bear Productions annual barbeque here in London, alongside a ridiculously sick line up of djs - we were all asked to choose a genre to play, I went for New Jack Swing, and it went a little something like this… For those that don't know, the New Jack Swing sound of the late 80's and early 90's brought together Hip Hop and R & B for the first time, to great commercial success. I first encountered it as a 9 year old, when I had the Ghostbusters 2 soundtrack featuring Bobby Brown's 'On My Own' on heavy rotation...
