Biography

As far as DJ/producers go Matthew Dekay has always been a name synonymous with quality productions and high energy live performances.

At just 33 years of age he has enjoyed a successful international career spanning over a decade.
Born and raised in The Netherlands he trained as a classical musician
and this background has had a huge influence on his approach to making electronic music. It kept Matthew very open minded and gave him the ability to cross genres without ever caring too much about composing in one particular style.

Over the years and following an albeit brief, yet very successful period in Dutch pop during the late nineties, Matthew moved into more underground musical circles and it was with releases such as the “Dekay meets Beastie Boys bootleg of “Intergalactic” in 2003, “Higher Thoughts” in 2004 and “Bad” in 2005 that he really cemented his place amongst the big players of the industry.

Matthew was able to develop his sound while playing extended sets as resident of esteemed club “Stalker” in his hometown of Haarlem, Holland.

From his close relationship with Dutch mega promoters Extrema, he released mix compilation “Time to Think” which became the official soundtrack to the Outdoor festival in 2003. He then went on to make the highly sought after and respected Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1 in 2004 and released his critically acclaimed Trousy compilation in 2005.
