NR4 aka Matt Haze
Matt Haze is a riddle, wrapped in an enigma, covered in a stylish beard. One of the most forward-thinking and current DJ's on the West Coast, he is currently raising eyebrows with his new 4NR project - an exploration of the global
bass diaspora. Haze is difficult to describe but impossible to resist. A filmmaker in a past life, Haze crafts his sets as a nod to the
cinematic concept of chiaroscuro - contrast of light and dark timbres - through a multi-cultural, multi-generational lens.
