    MATTHEW LAW (formerly DJ PHSH) was born in West Philadelphia, birthplace and home of legendary DJs Jazzy Jeff, Cash Money, Questlove, King Britt and DJ Aktive. From the very start, this son of two theatre aficionados was exposed to an array of musical styles--Classical to Avant Garde Jazz, Psych Rock to 70’s Funk--and now draws from his B-Boy background and vast musical knowledge to incorporate these elements into his unique, party rocking DJ sets.

    Outside of Philadelphia, MATTHEW LAW has been making people dance and backing major artists across the U.S. since 2009. He has extensively toured with Black Thought of The Roots, Gilbere Forte and Grammy nominated songstress Jazmine Sullivan, as well as opened DJ sets for Kendrick Lamar, De La Soul, J Cole, Mos Def and many others. MATTHEW has performed in front of 10,000+ screaming music fans at The Annual Roots Picnic and in 2013 was crowned East Coast Champion of Red Bull’s 3Style Competition--ultimately placing 3rd in the U.S. Finals judged by DJ Jazzy Jeff, A-Trak and Z Trip.

    MATTHEW LAW first gained international exposure, as DJ PHSH, a member of Illvibe Collective, featured on the 2011 German tour series Hip-Hop Don’t Stop. He returned to the tour in 2012 & 2013 and has made multiple guest appearances at nightclubs throughout Paris, France, including Djoon and Nouveau Casino. In 2015, MATTHEW experienced his first Asia tour while road managing and DJing for Korean Hip-Hop/Trap sensation Keith Ape.

    As the MATTHEW LAW brand continues to be recognized by industry leaders and behind-the-scenes influencers, MATTHEW has been featured on MTV’s Rap Fix in an extended interview with legendary radio/television host Sway and starred in BuzzFeed's "11 Problems DJs Know Too Well" earning over 1 million views on Facebook. Questlove’s management team asked MATTHEW to be his right-hand DJ for high-profile, celebrity events, and as a result MATTHEW has DJ’d Heidi Klum’s Annual Halloween Party and the Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Afterparty featuring Prince, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus and Paul McCartney. During the summer of 2015, MATTHEW was honored to be one of the youngest DJ/producers invited to DJ Jazzy Jeff’s 1st ever Playlist Retreat, collaborating amongst a select group of 30 creative professionals, including Young Guru (Jay Z’s producer/engineer), DJ Scratch (multi-platinum producer and legendary DJ of EPMD) and Vikter Duplaix (co-host and judge on VH1’s Master of The Mix reality DJ competition).

    Even with all of his touring and special events, MATTHEW still holds down multiple residencies in Philadelphia and New York City. Among them, he co-produces his own event, FRIENDS & FAM, drawing sold out crowds of 300+ attendees every month. After graduating from Dubspot in NYC, MATTHEW LAW is currently working on original production and remixes for various artists.

    “People say there’s something in the water in West Philly, and if that’s the case then DJ PHSH is swimming in it. Jazzy Jeff and I have laid the groundwork. Now, here comes the PHuture.” - Questlove
