Hi. My name is maT, also known as Stupid Hat maT. I’m a composer, songwriter, and musician, but most importantly, a great listener. I was never formally trained in music as a child. When my parents offered me piano lessons, I said no. Still, being of middle eastern descent, there was always music around. Early on, I was exposed to everything from Bob Marley and Jimi Hendrix, to Googoosh and Brittany Spears.
It all changed when I was 15 and discovered Virtual DJ. My childhood friend Mateen and I started messing around with it. One thing lead to another and DJ M2 was born. We were playing nightclubs around NYC before we were old enough to drive. This is where my curiosity about music and its impact on people started to flourish.
Fast forward almost a decade later, and my passion for music has not dwindled. I continue to DJ, I write music of all kinds, play bass, and sing in The Ehems. I’ve produced and worked on many projects like commercials, other artists’ albums, and more recently, film & TV.
I feel lucky to have crossed paths with music the way I did. Music makes life more beautiful. It makes the mundane pretty. It is one of the only things that can instantaneously take you to another place. As cliche as it is, music is everyone’s language. I hope I can continue to share and impact people with my music.
