AlleyKat and Matt Rapid
A dynamic duo - often seen working together setting up and running sound systems and stages, AlleyKat and Matt Rapid love a good party!
During the day they'll be running the sound system, keeping things sounding right - but come 11:30pm, they'll take over the system and mash up their favourite tracks for some good old fashioned ruckus dance floor vibes.
AlleyKat loves his bass-house, electro swing, and funky hip hop. Matt Rapid prefers things dark, heavy and fast, so lets have some fun mixing it up!
Through big bass, swing, electro, reggae, hip hop, ska and a dabbling of punk, AlleyKat loves to mix up the genres. Making mix tapes since the 80’s, AlleyKat brings an eclectic vibe. Touring NZ bands to Australia, running record label AlleyKat Records & dropping samples with the band Melatonin in Melbourne, set Al’s course in the Music Industry. One of the key organisers and Producer of Sundaise Music Festival and running Sunsonics, his own solar powered sound system.
Matt Rapid is a roaming sound engineer and music record-ist. A lover of synthesisers, found sounds, sliced and diced rhythms, and raw energy. Merging soundscapes, tweaked field recordings and heavy-weight flex into a deep, wild and constantly shifting bass music blend.
