About Mateo & Matos

JOHN MATEO AND EDDIE MATOS HAVE BEEN PRODUCING AND REMIXING SINCE THE MID 1980'S AND SINCE THEN HAVE RELEASED RECORDS ON JUST ABOUT EVERY MAJOR INDEPENDENT HOUSE LABEL IN NEW YORK.

HAVING BEEN INTERESTED IN DJING AND MAKING MUSIC SINCE THE LATE 70'S, THEY MET THROUGH THE AVENUE OF CB RADIO AND QUICKLY HIT IT OFF. LISTENING TO KISS FM AND DISCO 92 WKTU THEY ENJOYED THE MUSIC THAT TONY HUMPHRIES, SHEP PETTIBONE AND JONATHAN FEARING WERE PLAYING ON THE RADIO. SOON AFTER THE DUO BECAME PARTNERS AND GOT TO KNOW LOUIE VEGA, WHO AT THE TIME WAS PLAYING AT HEARTHROB IN NYC. LOUIE WAS A GREAT INSPIRATION FOR THE DUO AS THEY LEARNED THEIR CRAFT IN THE STUDIO WATCHING LOUIE PRODUCE AND EDIT.

IN 1986, THEY MET THE GREAT LARRY LEVAN. LARRY WAS PLAYING AT CLUBS SUCH AS THE LOFT AND THE GARAGE, THIS EXPOSED THEM TO A WHOLE NEW SOUND. IN THE MID TO LATE 80'S, DJING TOOK OVER THEIR LIVES AND THEY PLAYED EVERYWHERE FROM CLUBS SUCH AS HOUSE NATION TO STREET SUMMER PARTIES.

IN LATE 1989, THEY MOVED INTO PRODUCTION WHEN THEY SET UP FINAL CUT RECORDS WITH A BUSINESS PARTNER. IN 1993, HAVING ENJOYED SUCCESS WITH THE LABEL, THEY BEGAN WORKING FOR OTHER INDEPENDENT LABELS IN NEW YORK. ALSO AROUND THAT TIME THEY STARTED TO DJ ABROAD, TRAVELING THE WORLD. NOW INTO THE NEW MILLENNIUM, THEY HAVE DECIDED TO WORK WITH ONLY A FEW SELECTED LABELS. THEY HAVE ALSO SET UP A NEW LABEL, UNITED UNDERGROUND HOUSE SOUNDS.
