OLEM is Matt Brassington, a DJ and producer from Milton Keynes, UK.
After years of collecting and archiving great music for his own pleasure OLEM was spotted and recruited by Roger Sanchez and his Get Booked Academy. A true ‘selector’ spanning the more playful side of ‘Disco House’ music, Matt is now rightly being recognised as an emerging talent.
Matt and his ‘OLEM’ brand have moved forward into the industry with full force. He has launched his ‘Breaking Through with OLEM’ Podcast across multiple platforms, discussing both music and wellness within the industry. This has sprouted an ever-growing audience and recently hit an iTunes no.5 ranking. His organic social media following has grown alongside this hitting close to 5k.
Matt has had a steady stream of bookings since the turn of the year, appearing at London’s ‘Ministry of Sound’ and the ‘Shoreditch’ circuit. Matt has also taken his ‘OLEM’ brand across the country playing at ‘Society’ in the Midlands alongside Brandon Block, and also appearing at several ’MIND’ charity events - again raising the profile of mental health within the industry.
On a production front, Matt is logging some serious studio hours. His first EP at the end of last year received a warm response. This was debuted by Brandon Block, and appeared at a number of other events including the headline track for the DJ Growth Conference in Birmingham. With his production skills taking a sharp rise, it won’t be long before a release schedule is formed and eagerly awaited promos are sent out.
He has a unique skillset in the booth, it is this that has ensured that Matt has secured a number of bookings for 2019, including several festivals (the coveted ‘Isle of White Festival’ in mid June, Nozstock in July, and Wilkestock in August).
