Matt Karmil

Matt Karmil was born in 1979 near Stonehenge. Today, he produces and plays a particular form of playful and moody dance music for some of the world’s finest record labels and dance floors. Matt was a sickly, introspective child—his boyhood days were spent indoors, practising the classical guitar for endless hours. He got well in his early twenties, smashed the guitars and headed out into the big world outside Salisbury, England. Since that day, Matt has followed music wherever it takes him. Years of DJing, record collecting and working as a producer-engineer in London, Paris, Stockholm and Berlin led to him finding a new home in Cologne in 2012, where he soon befriended the tight-knit yet open-minded community of music lovers centred around the legendary Kompakt imprint.
