Matt Xavier’s relationship with electronic music began in 1993 at Manhattan’s most infamous downtown rave-club, NASA. Soon after he began promoting for New York’s Caffeine club where he met friend and confidante Michael “Blackwatch” Thomas. Together the two formed "Island Vibe Network" and began organizing art & music events at illegal warehouse locations throughout the Tri-state area. In early 1995, Matt Xavier (formerly known as Matthew Magic) began organizing the first goa-trance parties on the North American east coast and eventually founded New York City's most elite psytrance event company, "Tsunami Productions".

During his 4 year reign as Tsunami resident DJ & music director, Matthew organized numerous large scale events where he hosted and shared the stage with global talents such as Juno Reactor, Hallucinogen, Josh Wink, BT, X-Dream, KoxBox, Tsuyoshi Suzuki, Son Kite, GMS, Total Eclipse, Slinky Wizard and Green Nuns of the Revolution, to name a few.

Following the turn of the millennium Matthew retired the psytrance format and began producing psychedelic house and techno under the moniker “Gruvhaus”. During this time he licensed and released a string of quality 4/4 productions on such labels as Fabric, Release, Polyester, Annex and Fugu Recordings.

In early 2005 he and long-time friend Sean Palm founded the internationally acclaimed record label "Railyard Recordings" and hosted world-renowned techno/house producers: Joel Mull, Cari Lekebusch, Alexi Delano, Adultnapper, Donato Dozzy, Simon Flower, Voyager and Android Cartel.

After moving the Railyard Recordings offices to Berlin in 2007, he returned to the States to begin his role as music director & resident DJ for Compression, one of Los Angeles’ most influential techno organizations. During his 3-year reign, he hosted and shared the stage with Francois K, Richie Hawtin, Magda, Steve Bug, Mathew Jonson, Cobblestone Jazz, Dirtybird, Adam Beyer, Joel Mull, Radio Slave and many others. To this day Matt Xavier continues his 19-year journey into the deeper realms of electronic music - where more will be revealed.
