Fred Matters’ road to the turntables began over twenty years ago when as a child he realized his true passion in life was music. He taught himself to compose and produce musical scores and then went on to study at the Musicians Institute, where he tailored his studies to jazz and classical and learned to play everything from the piano to the timpani.
After graduation, Fred Matters joined the nightclub scene where he has over 15 years of nightlife experience having run some of the most successful promotions in Hollywood, CA. His extensive musical background always kept him very intrigued by DJs and their adaptability in different venues. This intrigue lead him to move out from behind the velvet ropes to behind the turntables.
In the past few years, Fred Matters has been featured on Hollyscoop TV having performed at exclusive events for Sundance, SXSW and The Grammys. Recently, he was hand selected to perform at Heidi Klum’s Annual Halloween Party hosted by TAO Las Vegas. He makes frequent appearances at Marquee, TAO and numerous Hollywood hot spots and is championed by industry heavyweights such as LMFAO, Will I AM, Nick Cannon, Snoop Dogg, George Clinton, Trey Songz, KRS1, Fabolous, Problem, Doug E. Fresh, Ace Hood, Migos, Method Man, Pharrell, Bone Thugs, Rosco Dash and Many More! On top of that, he is now the official DJ for the NHL champion LA Kings!
His biggest venue to date is the 19,000+ crowd at the Staples Center.
You can catch him opening and closing for some of the biggest names in EDM as well. Acts like Avicii, Rehab, Paul Oakenfold and Sidney Samson.
His deep appreciation and understanding of music coupled by his ability to “read a room” sets him apart from his peers. For Fred Matters, djing is not just a career but a way of life.
