Continuing my set of mixes showcasing artists who have had a big influence on me both as a producer and DJ, this episode features the Godfather of Hardcore, DJ SLIPMATT.

A man who needs no introudction to anyone in the rave scene, Matt has been producing and DJing for pretty much 30 years now, and was there right from the start. One of my first rave tapes was Slipmatt at Fantazia, and my favourite hardcore tune of all time happens to be a track he had a hand in engineering (for the record, it's Positive Energy by Vibena). He's behind Universal Recordings, one of the best happy hardcore labels from the 90s, and is crediting the happy hardcore scene as a whole with his SMD series.

Basically, he's a legend, of which few people have the right to hold that title. In this mix, it's an honour to show his brevity through his involvement in SL2, the SMD series, and in his amazing skills as a remixer. Respect.
