Matthew Bandy grew up surrounded by the sounds emerging from the nearby Motor City and the many 45's in his parents vast record collection. These sounds were to become a determining factor in defining his musical approach today. Bandy's communion with house music has now brought him to international recognition. Remaining true to his musicality, Bandy has interwoven passion and originality through his creative ambitions in DJing, producing, and operating a record label.
Introduced to dance music through the 90's Midwest rave scene Matthew began producing in 2000. Along side production Joel Hopper, the two created Deep House Souldiers. In 2003 Matthew formed Limestone Recordings and released the label's first single by pair titled "This Is Why We Dance." The release received an overwhelming response in the underground house scene and has been licensed several times including to Ben Watt's "Buzzin' Fly Vol. 1" compilation. Later that year Limestone was featured in Urb Magazine's prestigious "Next 100â€. Since then Matthew has gone on to release his music through respected labels such as Soulheaven, Papa Recordings, Foliage Records, Z Records, Seasons, Tribe and Chez Damier's Balance Alliance imprint. Matthew has also worked with the likes of Dave Lee, Josh Milan, Donn T, Toni Economides, Jay Tripwire, and Alexander East.
His scope as a DJ and his love for music can take his audience into many differnet musical areas. His sets can span from the deeper, dirtier side of house to uplifing, soulful vocals and into classic disco and boogie. Now living in London, Matthew is living proof that no matter where one resides, originality and dedication is more important than ones locale.
