Matthieu B will take over the turntables next and will be performing from 5th June to 31st August. The DJ has performed in various renowned clubs, such as the Rouge Pigalle and Le Paris Paris, following a residency in the Royal Monceau Hotel. His travels have taken him to countries such as Morocco, Italy, Tunisia and Portugal, constantly driving inspiration for him and influencing his music. Matthieu B says that the Maldives is the perfect place for his musical style and having the opportunity to mix in front of the most beautiful sunsets in the world is a real honour.

Following the success of his first album “Stroggilo Kitrino” in Greece and Italy, he moved to Spain in 1999, composing music mostly for theatre and film and that’s when he gained a reputation as a top keyboard and bass session musician and collaborated with a number of leading Spanish artists. He released “Focused” in 2006, which brought him international recognition. Cayetano says that his decade of global travels culminates with being a resident DJ in one of world’s most beautiful places.
