About Matt Catt

I enjoy creating great events. From family celebrations to festivals via venues of all shapes and sizes, putting on shows is in my DNA and I have a range of skills to offer.

As a DJ: I'm best known for my 'Global' sound that mixes music from many genres, and have done countless gigs and live-streams. I play a range of sounds from all around, blending beats from chilled vibes through classic grooves to future tunes and beyond, mashing up the familiar with the unexpected and curating sets to suit all occasions.

When not behind the decks, I take on other jobs that need doing within an event and I try to be a flexible asset to any organisation I work with. You might also see me in the car-park or working box office, serving food and drink, keeping FOH tidy or backstage with the artists, versatility is key to managing events especially in a community setting.

Over the years I have developed a passion for carnival and community arts which is providing new opportunities to grow and develop ideas. My website shows a range of events based activities from clubs, concerts and festivals to community garden meet-ups and street parades as well as my own projects working with appropriate technology and assemblage. It's a glimpse into my world, I look forward to sharing more with you.

2022 Season Review

It's been the first full year of normal events activity since the pandemic, social distancing and infection control taking a back seat to catching up on good times. I did contract Covid at Glastonbury but it was quite mild and apart from the cough I wouldn't of noticed above the usual festival recovery/bleuch.

I used this time to get out and about, revive my contact list and make new connections. This year I've also been working as a puppeteer which is an interesting challenge and very enjoyable.

My DJ system has had an overhaul and I am happy with the results. My new i-pad will allow me to increase my library so expect a whole new bunch of tunes as I add more music in coming months. My old headphones failed so whilst i search for replacement parts I have updated them with pioneers HDJCUE1 which are great sounding and compact too.

Community Arts

An increasing part of my work is centred around improving quality of life within our community using permaculture and public facing art. I cannot overstate the value of garden activity for aiding recovery and breaking cycles of isolation, and that's before we talk about the foods, fibres and medicines they produce. The 'Right to Grow' initiative proposed by incredible edible should mean we will see more projects get going in the coming months, for which I'm keen to be a part.
