DJ Kate Matthews
It was the year 2000 when DJ Kate Matthews fell in love with DJing. The setting was Shine nightclub in Vancouver, the night was called ‘Nice’ on Sundays, and the DJ was DJ Leanne. That was it for Kate, as this was her first experience seeing a female DJ perform! At 19 years old, she bought two Technics 1200 Turntables and spent countless hours teaching herself how to mix records.
In the fifteen-plus years since, Kate has rocked dance-floors in forests, beaches and mountaintops around the world for celebrities, elite brands, private events, pool parties and luxury residences. Weddings and Corporate Events are her forte, as Kate is fantastic at reading a crowd to put together the perfect playlist. She works closely with each couple/client to go over music preferences, in-depth.
Kate has held DJ residencies all over the world, most recently in the Maldives, at the Shangri-La's Villingili Resort and Spa six nights a week next to the waves at sunset. Other residencies include: Zafferano in Singapore, Empire Bar in Perth and Vancouver's Republic. Kate has also toured in Indonesia and Australia, playing Bali's top club Skybar.
Kate Matthews sets can include a wide array of genres from House Music & Nu Disco to Top 40, Hip Hop, Retro, Motown, Indie, Oldies, Latin, Remixes, EDM, Electro Pop, Future Bass and everything in between! It all depends on the clients.
In Kate’s words: “I love DJing because it's simply the best job in the world! To take a whole room of people on a musical journey and set the tone for a special space is pure magic."
