Radio Slave began in 2000 as a duo remixing project with Serge Santiago. As a pair Matt and Serge produced bootleg club remixes of songs by Busta Rhymes, Kylie Minogue, Limp Bizkit, Nancy Sinatra and many more pop artists. Around 2002, Serge left to pursue his own musical path leaving Matt in control of the Radio Slave guise. Matt continued to produce a string of remixes for well-established artists, before finally releasing his own original material in 2006. From this point onwards Matt would continue to release his own music, mostly through his own label Rekids, as well as remixing more underground electronic artists. In recent years, Matt has also released a number of different mix CDs including Fabric 48 and Strictly Rhythm Vol. 5.
As Radio Slave, Matt is yet to release a full-length LP. However he has released albums of original material as The Machine, REKID and Quiet Village (with Joel Martin).
