Meet Matthew Kennett, a 22-year-old from New Zealand.
“Because there weren't many full playlists for each music labels, so I decided to make them myself”
What is the best concert you’ve ever been to?
Flume saw him in Christchurch, New Zealand in July 2016. I had an epic time, went with my cousin and she brought me right to the front (well close to the front). There was a girl who was shouting lyrics in my ear, that was alright but what I didn't like was the fact that at one point she grabbed my glasses off my face, I quickly grabbed them back. Apart from that, I had an incredible time, mostly because it was the first and really only DJ concert I had ever been to.
What music did you grow up listening to as a young kid?
I grew up listening to my dad's music, ZZ Top, Led Zepplin, Van Morrison, Cold Play, Foo Fighters Eric Clapton he bought before I was born. Also, listened to music we bought like the Gorillaz, Maroon 5, Kanye West and my first ever album I bought was "Indestructible" by Disturbed (a vastly different genre from the rest) As well as a lot of New Zealand music on the 2 complications "Natures Best". From about the age of 10 - 12 or so my uncle introduced me to The Chemical Brothers, The Prodigy and from there I found Daft Punk and got more into electronic music
Do you play any instruments? If no, which instrument do you wish you could play?
I use to play the drums when I was younger, I really enjoyed it. Was great fun. didn't get very good at it but was decent. Could play a decent amount of good beats
Do you have a life slogan?
Don't give a crap about what people think about you.
Name your top 3 favorite artists and why?
I don't think I could ever have a definitive 3 top artists since there are so many artists that I like. I do have some favorite EPs and tracks by artists. Eptic - Overlord EP, Amnesys - Mainstream Nitro, Detonate - Netsky, Muzzy - Get Crazy (AgNO3 Remix) and finally F.O.O.L - Distorted Reality/
