Working with Tom from Cagedbaby, its the least niche of Matts projects and thanks to Sea Devils alluring pop dance grooves they will no doubt be shagging the upper reaches of the hit parade sometime soon. Last, but by no means least etc, etc, etc, is Radio Slave. Perhaps Matts most instantly recognisable nom de guerre, thanks in part to his inspirational melding of Kylies Cant Get You Out Of My Head to New Orders Blue Monday, this is Matts DJ moniker and the guise under which he completes his incendiary remixes and re-edits. However, before such sonic schizophrenia gets you calling for the men in white coats, just feel the quality and consider Matts legacy. Fired by the first wave of acid house, Matt gained his musical spurs by partying to dance music that was just that: music you danced to, irrespective of tribal factions. This was the raison d être he acknowledged when he took to the decks, first at Londons legendary Milk Bar in 1992, then onto the, then, recently opened Ministry Of Sound and then to parties across the country, most notably in Wales, where he was a regular at free parties, and in Brighton, his home since 1998. His love of re-edits, dance musics oft-forgotten backbone, led Matt into the studio himself. His own re-edits and remixes, such as the aforementioned epoch-defining re-imagining for Ms Minogue, soon gave way to his own productions and since the floodgates opened theres been no stopping the man known as, erm, Matthew E, Quiet Village, Sea Devils, Rekid and Radio Slave. Hes released records for Skint, Soul Jazz, Classic, Whatever We Want, and hes worked with fellow travellers, Belgiums The Glimmers.
If Matt comes up with another two projects he will have enough alter egos for every day of the week. Psychologists would probably have a field day with him; mercifully, we dont have to worry about any crisis of identity, we just get to keep on dancing. in rekids.com 02 Radio Slave is a low-fidelity experimental electronic project based in the United States.
