Saturday 26th September, 2015. 



To put it quite simply, Mathew Coleman (aka. MJ Cole) is as important to garage music as Larry Heard is to deep house or Goldie to jungle.

The London-born DJ, producer and label boss has been at the sharp end of the UK scene since the early '90s. After a classical training at The Royal College of Music, which included an appearance playing piano on BBC Television's 'Young Musician Of The Year', MJ Cole worked as a sound engineer for drum & bass label SOUR, before eventually finding his own style of two-step and UK garage sounds. 

After an intense bidding war, Cole’s first solo manoeuvre, the 1998 classic ‘Sincere’ became one of the first UK garage records to crack the UK’s Top 40. Two years after the singles success he signed to Gilles Peterson’s label Talkin’ Loud and released ‘Sincere’ the album. This earned him significant notoriety spawning two Top 15 singles, a prestigious Mercury Music Prize nomination, MOBO’s best producer award and a silver disc for UK sales.

In the years since, MJ Cole has worked with the likes of Disclosure, Wiley, Mary J Blige, T.Williams, Karen Harding, George The Poet, Tinie Tempah, Scrufizzer & Zed Bias - as well as providing remixes for everyone from Mariah Carey & Lana Del Rey to De La Soul, TLC and Amy Winehouse.

MJ Cole's most recent track 'Bouldaz' made it's debut on DJ EZ's Essential Mix, before being signed to Disclosure's 'Method' label. He continues to innovate and stretch the musical boundaries, and is one of the most eclectic DJs on the scene. We are very excited to welcome him back to Stealth on Saturday 26th September.
