Quote from Brandon

My favourite thing about DJing is seeing crowds go mental. It’s fantastic. It makes your job worth doing – it’s everything you work for. It just makes it so good to see the happy faces, enjoying themselves… everyone’s in there, waving their arms in the air. It’s a DJ’s dream.

The pinacle of Matt’s carrer was his seasonal sessions for Orlando Bonnici at Club Axis Malta where he supported big names such as Sonique

In 2003 Matt was hit by a car which left him with loss of hearing and tinitus in his left ear, his carrer in DJing was put on hold as the risk to extra hearing loss was too great. Fortunately new technolodgy and hearing protection advances have meant Matt was able to reignite his love for House Music and in 2010 the 1210s were once again spinning.

Matt is now back on the DJ circuit with events in London, Ibiza and Portugal lined up for 2019 he is also working on the release of his new House track ‘Society’

Between them, Luke and Simon have over 50 years experience in dance music. From the conceptual era of “Rave”, the brothers musical code has always remained steadfast and solid. “Play your Passion”. Both have enjoyed lengthy experience in the “Booth” and nearly 5 years ago decided to come together to put on a party.
That Party was called “SHUFFLE” and that`s where the “Shuffle Brothers” were born! Over the years the Shuffle brand has gathered momentum, delivering chunking house music events renowned for their musical policies and family vibe. More recently, their vision has seen them create bigger & better parties, whilst retaining the most important element…… `The Vibe`
This has seen them take over iconic local buildings and transform them with amazing visual projections & lighting, awesome laser shows & crisp, punching sound systems. They have invited some of the industries biggest names to grace the decks in Sam Divine (Defected,) Allister Whitehead (Fantazia) Brandon Block (Clockwork Orange) with many more planned.
The Shuffle Brothers themselves have been lucky enough to play events for people like Glastonbury Festival, Cream, Defected, Motion Bristol, Field Trip Festival, Banjax, Koolwaters, House Nation, House Worx, Sat in a Field, Love Summer Festival to name a few.
