Mad Mats (Stockholm) on The Main Ingredient 5/10!

Raw Fusion label head and international-soul-circle-mover-and-shaker Mad Mats will join me on the The Main Ingredient for a guest DJ set tomorrow.

About Mad Mats:

Stockholm club scene stalwart and worldwide record impresario DJ Mad Mats endeavors started in the mid 80’s when he left his break dancing career (Swedish champ 1985!) to become a DJ in Stockholm. In 1988 during a trip to London to experience the thriving rare groove scene he opened up his music senses to leftfield rhythms and the alternative club culture.

By night when Mats is not touring the world as a freestyle, house, hip hop or even techno DJ he is running the legendary Raw Fusion club in the heart of Stockholm. The club has been running strong for over 13 years with diverse guest DJs such as Joe Claussell, Jay Dee (RIP), Kerri Chandler, Peanut Butter Wolf, Roni Size, Theo Parrish, Jazzanova, Laurent Garnier, Richard Searling and Carl Craig. The club is still dominating the Stockholm club scene and has become the most important underground dance music institution in Scandinavia. Besides the Raw Fusion party he also runs a new house night called Unhous where he together with Tooli (24:hrs) and Jonas K delivers the best in underground house music.

By day he runs the internationally renowned Raw Fusion label. This record label continues to release essential nuggets that remain permanent fixtures in the record boxes of the most important DJs across the globe. As a side project Mats also got a “little” finger in the mysterious little label called GAMM…hush hush ok :) .

With a DJ career running for over 20 years, we know that this open-minded b-boy has got some serious skills and have on numerous occasions been voted Sweden’s best DJ. Last time was in 2009 when he got voted number one by leading club site where he received over 15000 votes. With a remarkable and open-minded variation he’s played everything from retro funk, soul, jazz & latin sets at Club Neo in Tokyo, soulful house at the Southport Weekender, hip hop at Turntables At The Hudson in NYC, techno at Goa & Weekend Club in Madrid, and freestyle sessions at the Electric Chair in Manchester. He has been there, done that and wants to return for more. Check him out if you can, you won’t be disappointed!
