Solar Sunrise – Embrace The Soul!

Thursday 6 – 8am

Embrace The Soul!

Living in a home full of music, older siblings blaring out the music we love guided my path into Soul and Reggae. My venture into radio all started in 1987 when the phone rang and the conversation with my brother went something like, “Matt I can’t make my show tonight can you cover me? A huge ask considering the only exposure till now for radio was tagging along to shows he hosted.

My older brother Shaun (Louis) is responsible for the last 30 odd years of playing, enjoying and at one stage dancing to the music we love. Big Time Radio was my musical outlet between 1987 to 1990, moved over to Unique Radio till around 2001 playing soul, jazz funk and reggae. I also had the opportunity to present shows on RSL stations too, Energy Radio now Splash FM in Brighton being one of the key stations with my show following on from Carl Cox!

Marriage and fatherhood put a pause to the adventure in music on radio put I continued to promote intimate soul and reggae events in and around southwest London with my event “Déjà Vu Soul”.

I have been around Solar Radio previously covering for Shaun on “Soulful Biscuits”, but I am now taking up Midnight till 2am (Thursday night into Friday Morning) with a new show “Embrace the Soul”. The show features the very best in modern & classic soul, Soulful House and a touch of reggae. I look forward to your company either live or on catch up here at Solar Radio.
