For Matt O'Brien, the start of his career consisted of playing songs off Windows Media Player and iPods to crowds of School mates and random gromits at house parties, schools and bush shindigs. As time progressed, passions grew stronger, ambitions stood higher and Matt found himself wanting more and more from this profession.
Since then, Matt has been a resident at Wollongong's Hostage X for the past 4 years playing alongside some of the biggest names in the DJ industry. Combined with Hostage X, Matt has had the privelege and opportunity of playing at his first festival (Safari Beats) supporting acts such as Bombs Away, TV. Rock, Havana Brown, Acid Jacks, Sgt Slick, Hook'n'Sling, Goodwill, Stafford Brothers, Charlie Brown, Mobin Master, Sam La More, Lil Bow Wow, Ricki Lee, Paulini, Aston Shuffle, Tommy Trash, Timmy Trumpet and more to date.
Matt O'Brien has been playing proffessionally as a Club Dj for the past 5 years where he has been training and practising day and night to bring his audience the best drops and the cleanest transitions whilst trying to incorporate his musical ability with a guitar into his sets to keep the clubbers guessing and intrigued. Theres nothing he loves more then seeing the crowd dance or sing as hard as they can to the tracks he plays in his set.
He enjoys nothing more then sharing his passion for music with his fans and audiences no matter what the occasion. He will always leave a crowd wanting more and promising to deliver. Matt O'Brien cannot be more thankful and greatful for the love and support that his fans have shown him. This win, the win for a set at Foreshore, was all because of these guys!
Matt O'Brien loves and thanks everyone of them! He will not stop for anything less then perfection.
