*Open Format DJ – An openformat DJ is someone who plays a mix of many genres, rather than just one single genre like House or Techno. In general, in the UK, when someone is looking for an openformat DJ, what they really want is a DJ who spins a mix of genres including dance music, hip-hop, R&B, club classics, chart music and old school.


As a DJ, Matt has a star-studded list of previous clients and has even had the pleasure of entertaining various members of the Royal Family.

Matt’s events journey started as a DJ in the nineties and has since amassed a wealth of experience working for BBC Radio, DJing in nightclubs throughout London and the Midlands, appearing on ITV, touring the UK as a DJ for various brand promotions and performing for professional sports celebrities.

Matt’s events business ‘Potter Group’ has proven very successful boasting a host of corporate clients including international clothing brands & Formula 1 race teams.

Potter Group‘ is proud to be the approved suppliers at many prestigious venues such as Althorp House.


I launched Potter Group to give the wedding and events industry access to pro festival & nightclub DJs and the best AV technicians, adding sophistication and wow factor into lighting and production. We now have an amazing team of AV technicians, DJs & musicians who have all helped to please over 2500 very satisfied clients since 2006. Bring it on!
