Happy New Year Everyone !

No live-streams on twitch until further notice!
2021 schedule to be announced.

After 8 months of twice weekly live-streams and a number of special events, I have decided to take a month off to decide my plans for 2021. The current covid restrictions have impacted in person events and created a need for more online entertainment; at the same time the social media giants have skewed their platforms in favour of commercial customers forcing a need for capital outlay in order to participate. With that comes a number of considerations, not least of all who to commit to financially and the marketing strategy to recoup that investment.

I decided over summer of 2020 to limit my own usage of regular social media in the wake of increased hyperbole and weaponised opinions. Put simply I wasn't enjoying my interactions with those who used these channels to spread information that I not only disagreed with, but also questioned their provenance. I do intend to repair my relationship with social media whilst addressing the value of influence in the media saturated / attention deficit era. I'm not sure yet what this looks like but am toying with the concept of an online social club, with participation protected by a safe space membership and self regulation. I would love the streaming quality of twitch with the rich media messaging ability of WhatsApp, I may end up doing just that or trying out zoom or slack as a club hosting platform. I'm very interested in blockchain publishing too so am exploring piñata and other similar file-coin based platforms.

Watch this space for further news and thank you for your support thus far.

About Matt Catt

For many years I have worked as a DJ and in production for clubs, parties and festivals. I'm best known for my Global sound that mashes up music from all over the world and have done countless gigs and shows for online radio.

However I am more than just 'that guy' who mixes great music; I work behind the scenes on events production and in the studio to create and edit content. I have also been the goto guy for many who needed help with their workflow or with completing a project doing anything from artwork to zoom meetings. I provide practical support and creative problem solving as I develop my own portfolio for social action projects & future events both online and in the real world.

How you can help

The corona virus lockdown couldn't of been more inhibiting for all of us working in events. Whist online shows and live streaming does provide a point of contact and a creative outlet, typical consumption habits make it hard to monetize without moving over to a pay-to-participate platform.

Meanwhile venues remain closed and redundancies are banging in the final nails. More can be done by our governments but also between audiences and their chosen entertainment streams.

I currently have options to subscribe on my channel and collect donations through my paypal page. I've looked into other methods and direct donations works best for me. You can give as little or as much as you like, and for the more-generous amongst you I shall be sending unique gifts and offers to DJ either online or in person once restrictions are eased.
