Catch King Unique perform live on June 16 at Pebbles. King Unique a.k.a Matt Thomas is an all round studio junkie and DJ with a taste for tripped-out cosmic techno and rough-edged underground house.

In a career spanning nearly a decade, KU’s distinctive sound has won an enviable global following.

A ceaseless schedule of DJ sets and festival gigs backed up by relentless studio sessions soon resulted in scores of records, remixes and radio broadcasts that has made the KU sound an instantly recognisable part of the music-life of millions of the world’s clubbers. Consistently appealing across genres, the tracks have been played by everyone from John Digweed to Soulwax, Richie Hawtin to Tiesto, and have turned up everywhere from Hollywood soundtracks to mobile ring tones not to mention countless compilations and mix albums.

Formed in 2001 by Matt Thomas and Matthew Roberts, King Unique hit the floor running, claiming the title of Undisputed Remix Champs by scoring five Essential New Tunes in five months on Pete Tong's 'Essential Selection' Radio 1 show. A US Billboard Dance Chart number 1 for the remix of Dirty Vegas’ 'Walk Into The Sun', plus two more solo Essential New Tunes for Matt under his Watkins and Mainframe alter-egos saw KU firmly cement their place amongst the ranks of first-call remixers. The King Unique production touch has been in constant demand since, appearing on more than sixty remixes and yielding some of the biggest dance floor bombs known to man - Underworld's 'Two Months Off', The Killers 'Somebody Told Me', Planet Funk’s 'The Switch', John Dahlback's 'Late Night Worries', and Tracey Thorn’s 'Grand Canyon'.
