Peter Matson is one of New York City’s most eclectic and capable groove merchants. A triple threat: bandleader, producer, and DJ, he's a chameleon that has made marks in music intersecting all corners of the map.

As the co-leader, producer, and guitarist of NYC based global dance band Underground System (Named after a Fela Kuti record), he’s produced several acclaimed 12” releases and their debut LP ‘What Are You’, which arrived via Soul Clap Records in September 2018. The band is currently touring internationally in support of the record, which has received press from outlets such as NPR, PRI, Billboard, OkayPlayer, Mixmag, and caused a large buzz during their European debut at the storied Trans Musicales fest in Rennes, France. An extensive tour of the EU festival circuit as well as an appearance at Afropunk Fest in Brooklyn will highlight their summer 2019, further supported by remix releases from the likes of Gerd Janson, Greg Wilson, and Soul Clap, music video work, and various soundtrack placements (Broad City, Tales From The City, Good Trouble). Underground System’s stellar reputation as a live band has found them sharing the stage with many afrobeat and dance music greats, including recent appearances with Seun Kuti, Femi Kuti, Tony Allen, Orlando Julius, Roy Ayers, !!!, Midnight Magic, and Sinkane.
As a DJ and Producer outside of band related activity, Peter has toured and worked with a wide range of acclaimed artists alongside a solid helping of his own deeper instrumental focused work. His Debut 12” EP as a solo artist arrived this January on Brooklyn, NY based label Bastard Jazz, diving deep into Peter’s deeper dance music inclinations. He is a resident DJ at The Standard Hotel in NYC and a fixture on the club and radio circuit, with favorite recent DJ venues of his including: Black Flamingo, Elsewhere, Good Room, House of Yes, Departamento (CDMX), Ponyboy, Rinse FM (Paris), Balamii Radio (UK), Dublab (Barcelona), and The Lot Radio.
