Otherwise known as Andy Brookes & James Wilson, Matta joined forces in 2009 after meeting at Music College. Specialising in dance-floor orientated Bass Music, Matta have shaken up Parties and Festivals all over the world including prestigious Secret Garden Party and Maschinenfest, released on labels including Ad Noiseam, Black Butter, Boka, and Subway Records, are being supported by huge names such as Bjork, The Prodigy, Bastille & Laurent Garnier. They've had their music featured on TV ad campaigns for Audi and Childline and have already accumulated well over 2 Million YouTube & Vimeo views collectively, mainly for one particular hit release, ‘Release The Freq‘. They have also had their music featured on TV programmes such as 'Misfits' & 'So You Think You Can Dance'.
They’ve also had some pretty surreal experiences during shows too. “We were in the middle of our set at a gig in Kiev, Ukraine when a huge group of men swarmed the venue, we didn’t know if they were Police or Mafia! They were wearing black, had guns and bullet proof vests on and were speaking in Russian so we couldn’t understand…” “We sat there for 2 hours with our hands on the table wondering what was going on!” Thankfully they live to tell the humorous, (yet scary) tale and continue to perform across the globe!
This light-hearted and down to earth duo take their music very seriously, their personalities and dedication shine through all of their work, and as they’re not shy of giving away their hard-worked music, paired with their phenomenal releases, the news of Matta continues to spread rapidly through cyberspace.
