Biography

Dotmatic (also written dot.|maTic) is the best-known pseudonym of DJ & music producer Jelani Carter. The only child born to Philly Soul producer Phil Hurtt and jazz/gospel soloist Ann Swain Clark, Matic was introduced to the music business world at a young age. “My earliest memory is probably when I was like… 5 years old…” he recalls. “My parents were working on a project at Sigma Sound & I remember my dad making the engineer real mad by letting me run the tape machine. It was funny, cuz I kept messin’ up this punch they were trying to do, but they stuck wit me til’ I got it right. ” Matic’s mother also kept him involved as well. She was the primary soloist & choir director for the Duke Ellington Orchestra’s Sacred Concert series, and would take him on the road whenever she got the chance.

Seeing different cultures & being exposed to various types of music would have a profound influence on Matic’s creativity, but it wasn’t until his high school & college years that he started building a real relationship with music. In 2001, he founded Kinesiis Productions, LLC - a Philadelphia, PA based DJ & Production Company that he still runs today. He got his first break appearing on WUSL FM’s “Inner City” program in 2002, and over the years, he’s seen success with events & performances at several high-profile venues in New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Atlanta, Detroit, and Los Angeles. Along the way, Matic kept busy with deejaying, releasing beat CD’s via the web, and doing demo production work for other up-and-coming artists. It’s a little known fact that around 2003, he provided the instrumental that would become the first ever track recorded by indie-rap darlings Tanya Morgan.
