Matthew Urbanic is that rare bird of DJ who is not only technically adept behind the decks but truly excels at whatever genre he chooses to play. In the past year, he has been seen most often as a resident for Proton, but Urbanic has been an in-demand guest at spots with different crews at Wits End and Beauty Bar. Urbanic's deepest roots are in house music, but he has made a significant mark as a techno DJ in recent years. Not one to be pegged, Urbanic has also been on bills playing drum and bass, electro and disco. No matter what genre he's playing, his track selections are world class, and he possesses a rare ability to play accessible floor-fillers that can blow the roof off a club or traverse into the deeper, experimental and more forward-thinking tunes to keep music nerds in the back of the room nodding their heads. Oftentimes within the same set.
