Slipmatt

When one refers to an artist as ‘an absolute legend’, ‘Godfather’ or ‘international hero’; more often than not it can be a term applied by the support of loving fans Worldwide or in some cases media hype that pertains to the artist in question being somewhat exceptional in their chosen skill on a global level. ‘Godfather’ as many of those that have witnessed Francis Ford Coppola’s award winning cinematic trilogy of films of the same name will attest, can also refer to a Sicilian Crime Family Boss.

Now, whilst the DJ and Producer and all round ‘international legend’ known as ‘Slipmatt’ has no affiliations with Sicilian families or crime (thankfully), he is most definitely in this case one deserving of the titles ‘Godfather’ and ‘Boss’...

A regular featuring artist in Dream Magazine, M8 voted him 'Best DJ' and Muzik Magazine nominated him for a top flight award. Slipmatt is also no stranger to the World famous DJ Magazine Top 20 DJ poll either, being voted in the Top 20 by the readers on a number of occasions, as well as receiving the title of 'Best Remixer' from the readers of M8 and deservedly; was awarded for ‘Best DJ’ and 'Outstanding 'Contribution to the Industry' from Kiss 100. In 2003 he scored a DJ Chart No.1 with his production ‘Space’ which was heavily supported on BBC Radio 1’s A-List and then later, in 2006, won an award for ‘Best Old Skool DJ’ at The Official Old Skool Awards followed in 2010 with a ‘Best DJ’ and ‘Best Producer’ Award courtesy of nurave.com and another in 2011 - ‘Best DJ’ ‘Music Industry Award’ again, via nurave.com.

Slipmatt has done and repeatedly continues to play across the globe in the USA, Australia, Europe, every corner of his native UK for club events such as Raindance, HTID, Epidemik, Tasty, Slammin Vinyl, Ravers Reunited, Fantazia, Hardcore Heaven and Dreamscape; at leading Festivals such as Glastonbury, Boomtown and Bestival and, a particular favourite of his, overseas visits to Ibiza where Slipmatt enjoys regular return trips to the White Isle’s most infamous hot spots such as Space, Es Paradis, and Amnesia. Slipmatt held a 19 week Summer residency at ‘Summum’ during 2007 and 2008, whereby the night he was resident was voted as second place in the ‘Best Ibiza Club Night’ stakes during that period and then in 2012 also held a 17 week Summer residency at Eden. Slipmatt is often asked to return to many clubs across the Mediterranean too, with hot locations such as Corfu, Malia, Rhodes, Zante, Majorca, and Cyprus also on his well established hit list.
