Logistics is the stage name of Matt Gresham, a drum and bass music producer and DJ from Cambridge, England.[2] He is signed to Hospital Records[3] He creates his music using the Ableton sequencer. His music style tends towards the more soul-influenced styles of drum & bass[4] but also targeted at a club audience rather than a home audience,[5] and is described as such by Hospital Records as "bridging the gap between a lacklustre sub-genre, liquid funk, and more exciting, dancefloor orientated drum and bass".[6] His two brothers, Dan Gresham, known as Nu:Tone, and Nick Gresham, known under the names Other Echoes and Bastille, are also producers signed to Hospital Records. Matt has also collaborated with Dan under the name Nu:Logic.[6]

Biography[edit]

Matt Gresham grew up listening mainly to guitar based music such as Rage Against the Machine, and downtempo electronic music. He took no interest in drum and bass, unlike his brother at the time, until he was introduced to the "Music Box" LP released by Full Cycle Records, which appealed to him as he described it "like downtempo tunes with double time beats".[6]

The first release Matt Gresham was involved in was a collaborative work as Nu:Logic, on Tangent Recordings in 2003.[7] He then went on to release his first work under the name Logistics, "Come To You / Music", on Nu:Tone's own label, Brand.nu, which lead to his signing to Hospital Records.[3] At the time, Matt Gresham was taking a degree in graphic design at Goldsmiths College, but he left in order to pursue a professional career in music production, having become significantly well known in the drum and bass scene.[1] After leaving college, he released several tracks, such as Together and Spacejam (from Spacejam EP) and The Trip (from Weapons of Mass Creation 2) which attracted the attention and influence of some of the major drum and bass DJs in the UK scene, including Grooverider and Andy C.[6]

Excerpt from "The Trip", released on Hospital Records' compilation Weapons of Mass Creation 2.

His 2006 album "Now More Than Ever", won BBC 1Xtra's 2007 Xtra Bass award.[8] London Elektricity's Tony Colman, the label manager of Hospital Records, described the album in an interview as (at the time) "the most eagerly anticipated debut album ever to be released on Hospital."[9]
