Do you live, breathe and bleed dance music as much as Dave Matthias? If you’ve never heard the name then the chances are unlikely. The man’s filled most roles in the industry that takes many years to fulfill. Starting out as a radio DJ on San Francisco’sKTS/LIVE 105 to curating dance music charts on Billboard, Dave Matthias cut his teeth early in his career handling press, media and radio before churning out a successful label project and his own DJ/Producer career. His remix of Armand Van Helden’s ‘The Funk Phenomena’ was the first domino to fall into a successful career as an artist.
Dave Matthias now teams up with Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter, Makeba, on his brand new single ‘Madness and The Dark’. You may recognize Makeba’s name on her works with Beyoncé, J-Lo, Rihanna, David Guetta, and Kelis just to name a few. The single has already hit the charts at #2 on Billboard and received edit and remix treatment from the likes of Crazibiza, Dirty Werk, Sted-E & Hybrid Heights.
