MAD MATS (Local Talk, Basic Fingers, GAMM)
Label owner and Stockholm local DJ legend Mad Mats have had a career that’s been running strong for over 30 years which has taken him around the world more times than he can remember, and he’s actually hungrier than ever and is spinning every week around the globe. Basically, he really loves his job and especially when he’s free to play a full night with no hands tied. But that said…one of his strong points is that he can rock virtually any type of party. You can have him for your house or techno night, your hip hop/r&b block party or a classic old school retro session with soul, jazz, funk, disco, world music…or everything together of course! Just check his mixes on Soundcloud and experience the diverse sounds of DJ Mad Mats. But maybe best of all, as the dancer, he is it’s not unusual to see him dancing away behind the decks with a big smiley grin on his face when he’s allowed to drop his favourite tunes. Remember…only real DJs know how to flip a b-boy windmill 😉
BEATWELL (NO) (Afterwork)
The love for music has been a constant in his life, always seeking fresh cuts from obscure places, never mainstream but mainstream enough for everyone to dance.
His musical heartrate dates back to the last century, where old school hip-hop, classic disco and birth of electronica all made a lasting impression, and forever inspiring him to think differently and dare to look outside the norm.
The goal is always to create the ultimate atmosphere, for a journey into the rhythms of contemporary electronica, groovy disco and quality house music.
Based in Oslo, beatwell’s extra curricular activities ranging from dance parties to private and exclusive throwdowns.
