(noun) migrashun “Directed, regular, or systematic movement of a group of objects, organisms, or people”
Being the brainchild of Mathias Matthew, Migrashun has been a seed that throughout time has been cultivated, genetically altered, and engineered with years of experience guiding the way. It was created to inject life, inspire, and give millions of tech house, minimal, deep house and techno fans an outlet to see and hear performers from the lighter side of the fence. All the while, making sure that music is not only moving your body but also your soul and mind.
Migrashun was established in 2009 as a top tier promotion agency in the United States for Tech-House, Deep House, Techno, and Minimal forms of EDM. Its aim is to provide audiences throughout the world with superior musical entertainment in an unquestionable atmosphere of professionalism and consumer satisfaction. Migrashun has taken upon itself to create opportunities for young, unique, and gifted producers and performers to prove their worth and to mature within the industry. It will also supply various outlets for eminent and intelligent dance music to shine. Furthermore, Migrashun is integrally focused on becoming an industry-leading label and talent management organization.
To understand the project you must first understand its creator. Mathias Matthew has grown over the years to become one of the most technically skilled performers of this generation. Throughout the years he has gained experience working in production, promotion, and performance (The three P’s of the scene). Getting his start on the flyer team of Necto in Ann Arbor, Michigan paved the way for many things to come. Since then, we have seen Mathias perform at numerous venues in Detroit including: Bleu Room, The Works, Finite Gallery, DEMF 2004, State Theatre, Centre Street, and Oslo just to name a few. In addition to performing, Mathias also worked on numerous production projects including the likes of Departure (Works Monthly) and Brio. Working with Derek Fox, Brio produced the Drip events which brought a new unique spin to Detroit’s electronic community. Brio used blank canvas venues to emphasize the performers while complimenting the venue with minimal eccentric visuals.
After relocating to Chicago in the fall of 2008, Mathias has played at venues such as Vision, Tini Martini, Victor Hotel, Wax and other hotspots. Over the past year he has worked as the Marketing Director of Volatl tm which has helped him gain knowledge and experience of the industry in all its facets. In addition, his participation in Just Quality Music’s “Weekly Record Check” has been an experience in its own right.
