Matt White’s journey through the UK music industry has been both influential and exciting. Growing up around a mixture of music from Soul, Calypso, Reggae, Jazz and Funk.
Matt began playing at friend’s house parties and local events but it wasn’t long until he was introduced to Rap Attack who at the time were one of the biggest sound systems on the UK R&B scene. Matt played with them for a while before approaching Aitch B and Jazzie B to join Soul 2 Soul. He quickly became part of the team and did production work on their legendary song “Fairplay”.
After which moved to Catch a Groove Records, who were only known for selling US House and Dance records. However when Matt started they quickly established a reputation for good quality R&B and Rap music.
During this time Matt was approached by Steve Jervier and asked to join him at Kiss FM. Matt embarked on the new path as a radio DJ alongside Steve and a year later when Steve left took over the slot. Matt has always been in demand from high profile artists he met through the industry and his radio shows. It was not before long Matt was playing private parties for Boys II Men, Mary J.
