For the past two decades Matt Drake has been a champion of timeless electronic body music in Auckland City.

Combining the finest dancefloor-optimised grooves with an effortless command of the crowd, Drake maintains a solid position at the forefront of the New Zealand club scene.

A deft technologist behind the decks and dynamic audio manipulator – each performance a hypersonic melting pot of muscular house jams, Detroit motorbass and sizzling analogue techno grooves.

Drawing inspiration from the astral arpeggios of 70s Krautrock, through to the ragged Balearic vagabond synth pop of the 80s and the proto-rave machine rhythms of the 90s.

Equally at home in underground basement clubs, inner city lofts, and open air festivals, Matt Drake honed his skills with multiple residencies and support for the worlds premier DJs, alongside countless guest appearances throughout New Zealand's leading club institutions and parties.

International support for: Richie Hawtin, Carl Craig, Derrick May, Kevin Saunderson, Booka Shade, M.A.N.D.Y., DJ T, Steve Bug, Michael Mayer, Ame, Matthew Dear, Huxley, Claude Von Stroke, Deetron, Jeff Mills, Stacey Pullen, Nic Fanciulli, Floating Points, Stimming, H.O.S.H., François Kevorkian, Vincenzo, Kruse & Nurnberg, Djuma Soundsystem, Superpitcher, Tiger Stripes, Dirt Crew, Tom Clark, Adam Beyer, Christian Smith, Cari Lekebusch, Aril Brikha, Steve Rachmad, Thomas Schumacher, Ben Sims, Steve Bicknell, Claude Young, Mike Grant, Cristian Vogel, Thomas P. Heckman (Drax), Lee Coombs, Tobias Thomas, Alex Smoke, Kevin Griffiths, Dario Zenker, Lee Curtiss.
