Matt Rowan

Matt Rowan’s DJ career spans two decades of house music and continues to grow and evolve today. Having commenced his first residency back in 1998, Matt has gone on to become a regular at many a Sydney nightclub and event.

A style that’s been described as “Bass-driven House Music” Matt’s sets incorporate a strong rhythmic and techy feel whilst remaining light hearted and funky: A combination which gets any dance floor moving! This dance floor oriented approach to set structure and programming, combined with deft skills, has seen Matt become resident at Sounds on Sunday and Sydney’s premier progressive night Sweetchilli. With dates both at home and abroad, 2006 will also see Matt make his WMC debut with numerous guest appearances alongside some of the industry’s finest.

2005 saw the release of Matt’s debut production “The Cruzer EP” on L2 Music as well as remixes of Ikarus’s Collapso and Seyton’s “Vikinfjord”. Further releases on L2, Boston label Reversible and Fiberline are expected early 2006 as will his tune “Keep Sake” which appears on Steve Porter’s “Porterhouse” compilation.

Alongside production buddy Jaytech, Matt’s release “Tomorrow/Blaze” was described by Nick Warren as “…the tune of 2005” and was championed by Warren as well as Hernan Cattaneo around the globe. Signed to Hope recordings, “Tomorrow” features on Dave Seaman’s Renaissance compilation “Master Series 3”. 2006 will see more original productions from the duo and remixes for V-Sag, Starecase as well as releases on Fiberline and Hope Recordings.

Matt’s tunes receive regular support from a wide variety of international heavy hitters such as Seaman, Cattaneo, Masiello, Fair, Sasha, and Porter whilst his DJ sets on Pulse, Proton, Frisky and Indiesoundz regularly attains listenerships over the 1000 mark.
