The alien returns to Golden

Mat the Alien, DJ import from England, is playing a show at the Rockwater Grill and Bar on Aug. 31, his second show in Golden this year.

The aliens just can’t stay away from Golden.

Mat the Alien, DJ import from England, is playing a show at the Rockwater Grill and Bar on Aug. 31, his second show in Golden this year.

Since the age of 14 Mat has been mixing, scratching, and making mixes – beats, spanning many genres and styles, always having one thing in common – heavy beats and bass lines which appeals to a wide variety of crowds with lots of cuts and turntable tricks thrown in.

It all started after hearing the electronic sounds being played in the warehouse parties around the northwest of England back in 1988. Being around music from an early age, his father owned a record store, let to Mat taking up the drums at age 10, and found the warehouse scene a few years later.

In 1995 Mat and his family moved to Whistler to pursue his new addiction of snowboarding, and he met DJs like Vinyl Ritchie and Kilo Cee, who were playing diverse sets, dropping hip hop into funk into electronic music.

Since then, Mat has toured across the globe and performed in 15 countries from Miami to Moscow, and even at sports events suck as the US Supercross, the Olympic Games, and the X Games.

Still living in Whistler, and now considered a pioneer of the music scene in the area, this father of two still travels almost every weekend to spread his music throughout Canada,  the United States, and the world.
