MATTBOYWHITE is quickly becoming one of the hottest open format DJs to watch.
Equipped with an extensive knowledge of music well beyond his years and a vast library, he’s able to adapt to the mood, and curate a unique experience for every party. Whether spinning for a sold-out show with B.O.B. or MSTRKRFT, a chic downtown Chicago nightclub, or a VIP private event for FOX’s “EMPIRE”, MBW’s versatility guarantees a good time.
While working with top brands including Red Bull USA, Bacardi, Atlantic Records, FOX Network, Vitamin Water, and TopShop, MBW has been able to create authentic relationships between brands and music lovers.
It was his passion for performance that caught the eye of Def Jam/G.O.O.D. Music artist HOLT, who was impressed with his skill and stage presence. Holt asked MBW to join him on tour with Fall Out Boy, and perform at the 2014 G.O.O.D. Music SXSW showcase with Big Sean, Pusha T and others. The two continue to perform across the country together in anticipation of HOLT’s debut album release.
Since then, MBW has been consistently turning out solid solo sets, quickly becoming the favorite opening act for A$AP Ferg, Riff Raff, Trinidad James and others during their tour stops in Chicago. And his stylistic sets that artistically blend audio and visual landed him current residencies at Chicago hotspots Studio Paris & Sub51.
To MBW, music is the most important thing in the world. “To be able to shape a crowd’s night with energy and positive vibes using music is one of the coolest feelings in the world, I seriously couldn’t imagine anything better.”
