Over the last 20+ years, Internationally renowned DJ, Remixer, Producer and now Artist, Matt Consola, has had an exciting career primarily as a touring “Circuit, Bear and Leather community DJ pioneer” as well as a record label owner and producer. And while the term “circuit” may not be a favorable one these days, he would not trade those events or experiences with anyone. “I look back at my days as a resident DJ at Metropolis (SF), Crobar (Miami & Chicago), and Pure & Amsterdam (Denver), and I’m still amazed by the crowds, the events, and most of all, the music. Not to mention I loved the traveling.” In just a few short years, this kid who had never left the country, suddenly found himself playing to thousands in England, Ireland, Greece, Mexico and Canada. Not to mention headlining some of the biggest International Street Events, Raves, RSVP Gay Cruises and Circuit parties including the San Francisco & Los Angeles Pride Fairs as well as The Folsom Street Fair, Up Your Alley, The Palm Springs White Party and the Black Party just to name a few. Along with producer Keith Haarmeyer, Consola formed the record label Redzone Records in 1999 and released over 30 successful Billboard Top 10 and #1 singles, remixes and compilations, including his much-loved Circuit Grooves CD series.
In 2009, Consola had the honor of opening for The Pet Shop Boys at the historic Warfield Theater for their sold out Pandemonium World Tour September 22nd & 23rd 2009, which lead to dates at the infamous House of Blues. Currently a fixture in San Francisco at the internationally renowned Sanctuary, Adonis and Boy Bar clubs for Gus Presents, Consola is also a traveling resident DJ with Bearracuda, America’s largest bear club. With monthly or quarterly parties in 16 cities including Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Portland, Seattle, Vancouver, Austin, Orlando, Phoenix, Atlanta and Salt Lake City, Consola has been tapped to play 2011 Bearracuda parties Montréal, Amsterdam, Australia and New Zealand. His upcoming tour dates can be viewed at his website www.MattConsola.com.
In addition to a very successful Itunes Podcast called Adapter, which averages 21,000 downloads & streams a week, and a Saturday Nite, hour-long Internet radio mix-show on the Sobel Nation Radio (sobelnationradio.com), Consola has launched a new 2011 record label called Swishcraft Music. Swishcraft Music ( www.swishcraftmusic.com ) features newly produced singles and remixes by Matt Consola featuring some of the top vocal talents in the industry, as well as licensed singles from the UK. Swishcraft kicked off with Consola's #1 club hit, "Midnight" featuring the vocals of Brenda Reed and was followed up by the equally successful single 'Coming Back."
