DJMatt's Musical Specialities

We ask all our DJs to pick a maximum of SIX music genres/styles that best matches their specialities. This doesn't mean they aren't any good with other musical styles, but if you're planning an event where you wish to please as many of the audience as possible, you should consider hiring a DJ that specialises in a particular era or style.

Chart

'Chart' is a catch-all category to mean music that is popular right now and very recently. The kinds of stuff you will hear on BBC Radio 1 and 2, along with commercial stations, and is generally of interest to typical casual listeners / dancers.

Electronic

Electronic music employs mainly electronic or digital instrumentation to form the predominant sound of a band or artist. Popular since the introduction of affordable semiconductors in the 1970s onwards, pioneers included Kraftwerk and Can, before the technology went mainstream leading to the creation of post-punk and new romantic bands a-plenty in the late 70s and early 80s. Nowadays virtually every band has some electronic aspect to their musical output.

80s era

The 1980s saw the rise of MTV and music videos. Michael Jackson and Madonna were the most powerful musicians during this time. Their videos became a permanent fixture on MTV and gained a worldwide mass audience. Michael Jackson's Thriller album from 1982 is the best-selling album of all time.

In the second half of the 1980s teen pop became popular with bands and artists like New Kids on the Block, Debbie Gibson, Tiffany, Tommy Page, New Edition, Stacey Q, The Bangles, Madonna, Olivia Newton-John and others.

Urban pop acts of the 1980s include Tina Turner, Lionel Richie, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Deniece Williams. American artists such as Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen, Tina Turner, Bon Jovi, Prince and Janet Jackson ruled the charts throughout the decade and achieved tremendous success worldwide.

And then there were the New Romantics like The Human League, Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, Culture Club, Visage and Soft Cell alongside rock bands like Queen, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, Europe, Twisted Sister, Poison, Whitesnake, Guns N' Roses and the successful comebacks of Aerosmith and Alice Cooper.

And the 80's were a rich source of great soul and disco music with Prince, Jermaine Jackson, The Whispers, The S.O.S. Band, Stevie Wonder, Kool & the Gang, Yarbrough and Peoples, Rick James, Diana Ross, Lionel Richie, Earth, Wind & Fire, Dazz Band, Evelyn King, Marvin Gaye, Mtume, DeBarge, Midnight Star, Luther Vandross, Freddie Jackson, Sade, Anita Baker, Teddy Pendergrass, Peabo Bryson.

Add with the beginnings of hip hop with Run D.M.C., Beastie Boys, NWA, LL Cool J, Public Enemy, Eric B. & Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, Boogie Down Productions, and Ice T, among others and the 80's truly had something for everybody.

90s era

Pop music in the 1990s saw the continuation of teen pop and dance pop trends that emerged during the 1970s and 1980s, along with hip hop which grew in popularity during the decade. The Britpop movement saw various interchangeable groups such as Blur, Suede, Pulp, Ash, Supergrass, The Verve and Oasis regularly topping the charts throughout the decade. This was also the decade of the boy band and the girl band, with Take That, East 17, the Spice Girls, Westlife and Boyzone having great success.

2000s

Hip Hop dominated popular music in the early 2000s with artists such as Eminem, OutKast, Black Eyed Peas, 50 Cent, Kanye West, Jay-Z and many others coming to the fore.

Garage music was also popular thanks to the emergence of social media platforms such as MySpace and this style veered into the mainstream when bands such as Franz Ferdinand, The Killers and The Bravery became popular.

Pop singers such as Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera and bands such as Backstreet Boys also dominated the charts.

The 2010s saw a big shift in the style of vocals associated with pop music, with lower range artists such as Beyonce, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga and Rihanna outselling the popular artists of the late 2000s. Again Hip Hop and electronic dance music were dominant thanks to DJs and artists such as David Guetta, Swedish House Mafia, Clean Bandit, Aviici and Calvin Harris.

Adult contemporary music was big in this decade, with artists such as Adele, Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran, Kelly Clarkson and CeeLo Green all incorporating soul, pop rock and folk into their music.
