At Sundae, we are pretty lucky to be involved in such a great city for dance music. Brisbane has such a great depth of talent, and a creative do-it-yourself attitude that has built a tidy little club scene of various flavours. Right at the beginning of the post-Joh nightclub domination of our city was our guest for this week, intent on driving the development of dance culture, and in the midst of it, cementing his position as one of the city’s finest tastemakers. Let’s get to know Matt Kitshon.
Before any of the fancy promo outfits and paparazzi style photographers arrived on the scene, a night out in Brisbane was a sordid affair. Fighting for any space that could contain turntables and a sound system, Matt was part of a select group of early pioneers that would introduce Brisbane to the modern clubbing experience. From revered venues like The Tube, and Viva, and the original incarnations of the Port Office and Monastery, Matt delivered his latest musical discoveries each week to a growing community of dancers eager to lap up the new sounds being unveiled in front of them. As the Valley was cleaned up, and Brisbane’s nightlife scene blossomed, Matt continued to maintain at the forefront, leading a growing consort of DJs with his experienced selection and impeccable style.
Always keen to develop a burgeoning young scene with his thoughtful contribution, Matt brought his considerable experience to China, amongst other international destinations, in order to grow the scene there. Upon his arrival back in Brisbane, he wasted little time re-establishing himself at the top of the game with residencies at The Met and more recently Zuri, amongst guest spots all around town that required his learned touch.
Although operating at high frequency each weekend, Matt’s visit to Sundae will take the pressure down a notch or two. His sound likely punctuated with deep, Balearic and soulful cuts, and delivered in the fine fashion of a master craftsman thoroughly enjoying his work. Join us this Sundae as we take in the sound of a DJ that knows Brisbane inside out. We’ll see you by the riverside.
