Logistics grew up on a self prescribed musical diet, equal parts guitar based compositions from bands such as Rage Against The Machine and down tempo efforts from labels like Mo’ Wax. Matt aka Logistics railed against the music his brother, Dan aka Nu:Tone would listen to and finally acquired a taste for drum & bass through the Full Cycle “Music Box” LP. “That LP was like down tempo tunes with double time beats!” he explains “I’d always been into stuff like Mo’ Wax and that album, particularly “11.55” by Roni Size & DJ Die had the same vibe that I could relate to.”

Having a brother already signed up to Hospital didn’t qualify Matt for an ‘automatic in’ and it wasn’t until he sent “Replay” down to the office, swiftly followed by Fabio and Grooverider picking up on the tune, that he got his chance to work on his own album project. Having just left college this was a great opportunity for Logistics and he made the very best of it, working solidly on creating masterpieces in the form of “Together”, “Spacejam”, “The Trip” and “Release The Pressure” (the only previously released tune on the album) and bridging the gap between what until then had often been a lacklustre sub-genre; Liquid Funk and more exciting, dance floor orientated drum & bass. It’s Logistics’ influence that has been picked up by the major DJs in the scene such as Andy C and Friction, and his anthemic creations have contributed greatly to the modern Hospital sound.

His debut album itself “Now More Than Ever” (released in winter 2005) was a hugely ambitious project, restraining no less than 24 speaker busting tunes. 18 months on, having scooped Best Album at the 1xtra Bass awards for his debut album, Logistics has another monster LP lined up for 2008. “Reality Checkpoint” drops this spring and is already taking critics and fans alike by storm.

“Reality Checkpoint” contains 15 stormers ready to blow your mind. From the anthemic sounds of “Lullaby” & “No Words” to the genre bending dubstep genius of “Coldworld” & the electro futurism “Cocoon”, Logistics’ production has matured without losing any of its genius, excitement or experimentation. A favourite with both big room DJs and fans of those who like their drum & bass a little deeper – everyone from Mr Scruff to Andy C is onboard. Logistics onceagain proves that he’s a man for all seasons. Like the Luke Skywalker of drum & bass, Logistics continues to flirt with both sides of the force, bringing us beats that are as emotive & elegant as they are urban & tough.
