Matt Jones & Patrick Doody are the Sour DJs. The 25-year old producers and musicians from Niagara Falls, Canada who dove head first into the world of electro with their debut EP "Sour Shuffle” in April 2010.
Matt started to develop his sound at the young age of eight in London, England when he got his first cello. After 15 years of studying with some of the world’s top musicians, he decided it was time for a change up into something more current. After meeting Patrick the two decided to get some studio gear and see what they could do; they haven’t looked back since.
After only 6 months in the studio the Sour DJs were quickly gaining notice in the international scene; and have since gained support from the likes of Donald Glaude, MC Flipside, Jelo, Markus Schulz, Subfractal, fTampa, Andy’s iLL and others. With a feature in Benny Benassi’s Radio Mix #170, the Sour DJs were exposed to the global scene like never before; and things haven’t been the same since.
Their debut EP "Sour Shuffle" climbed to reach #16 on Beatport top 100 charts, with other releases hitting #2, #11, #22. Over the past couple years the duo has also played in Toronto on the Bound by Sound boat cruises with international DJ Dave Spoon, Steve Duda, Soha; and have also played along the likes of deadmau5, Chris Lake, Dada Life, Steve Aoki, Hardwell, Porter Robinson Donald Glaude, JFK of MSTRKRFT, Funkagenda, MC Flipside, Mord Fustang, Tommy Lee & DJ Aero, Adventure Club, Seven Lions, DVBBS, Torro Torro, Unit 42, Andy's iLL and many more. In recent months the Sour DJs have been working hard in the studio and have unleashed an arsenal of heavy hitting tracks and have no sight of stopping anytime soon.
the Sour DJs name was developed to help describe their sound. Their music is angry, aggressive heavy, grinding, and noisy; something that can only be described as “Sour”. Living by their #1 rule "Less Corn More Beef" you can guarantee one thing about their sets; you will leave sweaty and tired...because they don't give you a chance to stop raging!!
