SM: When did you take over as matchday DJ at Luton Town?
MC: I started in 2012, when we were in the Conference. I’ve been lucky enough to see 3 promotions since then, and now we’re in the Championship! This will be my 10th season at the club.
SM: How long have you been with Luton & how did you initially get into the role of Match-day DJ?
SM: Can you remember your first football match/stadium experience?
SM: Would you say your first experience of live football was motivation for taking the role of matchday DJ?
SM: In all your time at Luton, who’s the best player you’ve seen wear the famous orange shirt?
MC: That’s a very tough question as we’ve had some very special players over the years while I’ve been at the club. The answer I give though is controversial to some. Technically the best players I’ve seen at Luton were both full backs, James Justin who came through the academy (now playing for Leicester), and Jack Stacy now at Bournemouth. I immediately knew from their technical ability that they would both play at the top level.
SM: Who is your favourite artist/band of all time?
MC: The Libertines/Arctic Monkeys.
SM: Which piece of music do you think is the ultimate track for motivating a footballing side?
SM: Do you have an all-time favourite track that you play at Kenilworth Road?
MC: ‘Town Called Malice’ by The Jam.
SM: What are the main songs you use week in, week out at the ground?
MC: ‘Found What I’ve Been Looking For’ by Tom Grennan, ‘Town Called Malice’ by The Jam, ‘Ya Mama (Push The Tempo)’ by Fatboy Slim (Moguai remix) & ‘Right Here, Right Now’ by Fatboy Slim (Friction Remix).
SM: On a final note, are there any funny mishaps/cock-ups that have taken place that come to mind when you think about your career so far?
We’d like to say a big thank you to Matt for taking the time to talk to us. We wish him and all the Hatters’ players, staff and supporters the very best for the season ahead!
