Originally from Toronto, Matty began his career as an assistant engineer before linking up with Mark “Spike” Stent. As Spike’s mix assistant and engineer for several years, he gained an unparalleled level of knowledge and first hand experience under one of the industry’s most successful and in demand mixers. During his apprenticeship, a relationship began with producer and songwriter Dave Sitek (The Carters, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV On The Radio), eventually becoming his go-to mixer.
As first mixer and engineer, he has worked with a diverse range of artists such as TV on the Radio, Clean Cut Kid, Juanes, The Glorious Sons, and Yeasayer. Matty has won two Latin Grammy Awards for engineering Cafe Tacuba’s Jei Beibi (Best Alternative Album) and engineering and co-mixing Juanes’ Loco De Amor (Best Pop/Rock Album). In 2017, he was nominated for a Juno Award for Recording Engineer of the Year.
Some of his most recent projects include mixing select songs from albums including Dermot Kennedy’s Lost (Riggins), Walking On Cars’ forthcoming album Colours (Virgin EMI), Alessia Cara’s The Pains of Growing (Def Jam), and Weezer’s single “Can’t Knock the Hustle” (Crush/Atlantic). Currently, Matty is working on mixing projects with Grouplove and Weezer’s highly anticipated forthcoming album Weezer (Black Album).
