Biography

Matthew Nelson aka the legendary Slipmatt is one of the biggest if not the biggest original rave DJ ever. Matt has played all over the world, mixing and spinning across every continent and all over the UK.
Slipmatt started his professional DJ career in 1989 when he was the original resident for Raindance. He also released his first single in 1989 called ‘Do That Dance’ which was the first SL2 production with best friend and fellow DJ ‘Lime’. Matt then went on to experience untold success as SL2 with chart hits such as ‘DJs Take Control/Way In My Brain’ and ‘On a Ragga Tip’. At this time, Slipmatt and DJ Lime were propelled into the media spotlight with many TV appearance’s including Top of the Pops and Dance Energy.

In 1993 Matt set up a new project with the SMD series (Slip Matt’s Dubs), which was a big part in laying the foundations for the then new style Happy Hardcore sound. Since then Matt has compiled and mixed numerous compilation albums which collectively have sold millions of copies, including classics like ‘United Dance – The Anthems 1 & 2’, ‘Moondance – True Rave Anthems’ and ‘Helter Skelter series’ with Ministry of Sound to name just a few.

To date Matt’s work has not gone unnoticed by his adoring fanbase. In the 90s both Dream Magazine and M8 voted him ‘Best DJ’, with a nomination for ‘extreme international competition’ by Muzik Magazine and he also received the title of ‘Best Remixer’ from the readers of M8, and deservedly was awarded for ‘Outstanding Contribution to the Industry’ from Kiss 100
