Events News - May 2020

With Covid-19 lockdown continuing at least until May-June, I am now working at providing online music services across a variety of platforms.

My twitch account is back up and running. Follow me there for notifications when i go on to play. Currently I am providing 2 shows a week plus one offs for collaborative events and festivals.

including....

21st-24th May - Small World Spring Festival Home to Home Live-streaming event. Timeslots to follow.

Meanwhile at YCY Crowswood Park - I am combining exercise with caretaking to lay the foundations for our post-lockdown activities; ensuring the gardens are tended and the main space sorted, ready for the big lift of the portacabin onto its new base at the back of the compound.

Finally... If I can help you in any way, don't hesitate to contact me.

Take care and see you on the other side.

How you can help

The corona virus lockdown couldn't of happened at a more critical time 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.

I currently give my shows away for free and collect donations through my paypal page. 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.

Support your local community arts and events providers.

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 machines or with completing a project doing anything from artwork to zip-filing.

I have worked on many of my own conceptual projects exploring themes of transformation through use of mixed media and appropriate technology . I enjoy repurposing things and seeing them brought back into use. I'm inspired by objet-trouve, maker culture, deep topography and street art.

I'm currently working within my community, performing at events plus helping to facilitate creative spaces and regular opportunities for people to share their skills and socialise. All of this combined forms the basis for my community arts and events work.
