Matt Kingston, better known by his stage name audiocaptions, has spent his whole life surrounding himself with music. His obsession started at a very young age learning to play the guitar, violin and pretty much anything that he could get his hands on. With a critical ear and desire to be different, he grew up listening to a mixture of synth-pop and early 90's house. Being ahead of the times and interested in remixing, Matt was forced to seek ways to enhance or even totally change a record. With technical advances and development, Matt started playing with specialist software and hardware launching him ahead of his time. Matt became a recluse to find who he wanted to be, not only as a producer but as an artist which has lead him to where he is today, now known as Anywhere Near Zero
Now lucky enough to have his own state of the art studio, Matt spends every waking hour pursuing perfection and always making sure he pushes the boundaries, not only as a producer but as a remixer and very talented DJ.
"Being a real dj is more than just owning decks" Says Matt. "nowadays anyone can mix a record to some degree. That does not mean you are any good or have any kind of benchmark as we are all different in our techniques and abilities. I love the expression and freedom mixing records give you especially to a large crowd. I love the fact that i can remix on the spot a record that you once knew and assume will drop when you expect it. I love pushing the boundaries and showing people the true meaning of a DJ"
As always Matt is constantly collaborating with like minded musicians from lots of differant genres to ensure that his sound is always current and fresh. "if i feel my music is leaning towards sounding like sombody else i go back to the drawing board" says the now busy podcaster !
With very little time to himself Matt has managed so force the time to present a fortnightly podcast cleverly titled The Anywhere Near Zero Podcast. What started off as a bit of fun has enabled Matt to reach out to the masses with ease by offering comedy and professional mix sets as requested by the listener. . . .
"to be good at anything takes time. I felt like so many people listen to so many bad djs. it just made sense to publish my show online to ensure the correct audience were aware that i existed. I will forever be greatful to my fan base and everyone that listens to the show and purchases my music.In return I will continue to present and host what could one day be one of the biggest shows online" !
