MATT DRAKE

Matt Drake has been a champion of timeless electronic body music in Aotearoa across the past two decades.

His sets are a melting pot of muscular house jams, Detroit motorbass and hypnotic analogue techno grooves. Equally at home in basement clubs, innercity warehouses, beachside forest clearings, abandoned cineplexs, and private lofts - Drake has spread his love of electronic music throughout the land.
Drawing inspiration from the astral arpeggios of 70s Krautrock, through to the ragged Balearic vagabond synth pop of the 80s and the proto-rave machine rhythms of the 90s.

Matt has dedicated his life to music - being a core part of New Zealand's underground music scene - a founding member of Nurture Recordings in the late 90s, running Crucial Records in Auckland's High Street, hosting a decade-running Slipstream radio on George FM on Thursday nights, promoting events as Flexx., and being a product team at Serato HQ.
