Matt's worship leading has been known for incorporating electronic music and loops in his worship sets - controlling Loops on the fly with foot controllers and Ableton Live software. "I've been using Ableton since 2004 and my live performances haven't been the same since. Ableton allows you to incorporate studio sounds in a live setting, while still maintaing creative musical control", says Matt.

In 2011 he co-founded LoopCommunity.com, a resource for worship leaders, musicians and churches to distribute original Loops, Multi-Tracks and Sample Libraries for their worship services.
