Matt Davies is a Dj that lives & breathes music
24/7. He first caught the bug of electronic music when he came across a pirate radio station in belfast in 1991 called passion fm that was him fixated on this new sound he fell in love right away & would tune in every week recording the show.
Things were really starting to take of in Northern Ireland then the clubbing scene was in full flight with clubs like Charlie Heggartys , Killwaughter House , Airport Inn Club ,Tokyo Joes , The Network , Kelly's aka the mighty Lush which it's known now and the awesome Hellraiser raves in the ulster hall were a regular for matt week in & week out. Along with trips over to Cream in Liverpool & raves in Scotland & London.

Matt then would often practice on his friends Technics wanting to learn how to create the perfect mix then his friend give him his first shot of playing out in front of a crowd in the Airport Inn Club which his friend was a resident at the time the buzz he got was electric he couldn't wait till he got a chance to do it again.
He then saved up and got his first set of decks at age 19 a set of Technics 1210's. Lots of partys would follow then slots in clubs & bars throughout northern ireland like Mono , Elevate @ Club Honey , Club Rocks , A.M.P.M , Scratch , The Middle House , The Windsor etc..... and running his own nights Prognosis with long time friend's Rab millar & jonnyMac.
