No newcomer to the electronic music scene, Matthew Warren is a DJ and producer who has rocked dancefloors across 4 continents. His music career launched way back in 1992, with a rave he helped organize on his university campus. The event drew more than 3000 party youth – horrifying the conservative leaders of his suburban Catholic university – but quickly opening doors in the New York club scene.

Matt started out throwing parties at some of NY’s most notorious venues of that era, including Limelight, The Tunnel, Palladium, Roxy, and Club USA. (He signed childhood friend Junior Sanchez to his first DJ residency playing at Club USA’s VIP room, when Junior was only 15 years old!)

Soon Matt was behind the decks himself, and he began dabbling in studio production as well. His first headlining gig was at Twilo in 1997. Four years later, he would produce Twilo Records’ debut release under his “Trendroid” alias, with good friend Pankaj. Things really took off from there. He was personally invited by hero Danny Tenaglia to play with him at “Be Yourself @ Vinyl”. The follow-up release to the Twilo record was played an incredible four times in one night at Fabric (London) by UK house legends X-Press 2.

In the days before Beatport or Traxsource, Matt released many productions and remixes (on vinyl) selling thousands of copies on labels like Strictly Rhythm, Junior Boy’s Own, FFRR, Tommy Boy, Renaissance (UK), and Twisted America. He received wide support from DJ’s of all genres – including Carl Cox who tapped Matt’s single “Rumba Magic” as his tune of the (Winter) Music Conference in Miami.

Matt and Pankaj were selected to mix the last “Transport” compilation, in the series originated by Paul Oakenfold. Transport 6 showcased the range of their diverse forward-thinking sound. The 2 CD mix received much critical acclaim, and they toured extensively around the world. Some of notable gigs included Pacha (Ibiza), Turnmills (London), The Cross (London), Womb (Tokyo), Plus Soda (Athens), festivals in Hungary, Portugal, Peru, and the Dominican Republic. Of course, they also toured extensively across the US and Canada as well.

Matthew had a hiatus from the music – but now he’s back in the mix, with a brand new studio space and dirty bass sounds to move the crowd. For 2015, he has a solo project committed to Junior Sanchez’s massive “Brobot” label and a collaboration with rising star Blaqwell is signed to Sonny Wharton’s UK “Whartone” imprint. Expect more forward thinking house and tech sounds coming your way.
