Head of the oldest and largest record pool out there, Ronnie Matthews.. he has supplied dj's worldwide with the latest and most cutting edge music and (although modest about it) really created the CrossOver music genre,
He has worked with and personally known some of the greatest artist of the past 40 years and ready to give insight of the future of music and his opinion on whats out there now

For 40 years MR Dance Music aka DJ Captain Kirk aka Ronnie Matthews Has Been Influencing The Dance Music Scene.
Ronnie Matthews, the head of STARFLEET MUSIC Record Pool, is celebrating 40 years in the music business as a whole, from his days as a Record Store buyer, Spinning Vinyl at the clubs under the name DJ Captain Kirk to sitting in the Captain’s Chair at STARFLEET MUSIC , both names he received the blessings on from Gene Roddenberry’s son. Best put by Ronnie himself “Well, I’m an old Trekkie. I saw the original Star Trek back in the 60’s & I always wanted to be Captain Kirk. Throughout my early DJing career I had not given a thought to having a DJ name/handle, so when one of the radio stations, WCKZ Kiss-102, asked to do their mix shows, the PD asked what my DJ name was, “DING”, the light went off in my head & DJ Captain Kirk was born. I’ve had a ton of fun with that name, plus it helped spawn my company name as well, Starfleet Music Pool. I have all sorts of items given to me from companies associated with Paramount/Universal, even have a drop by Gene Roddenberry’s son, Rod Roddenberry, who is in charge of the franchise now, saying thanks to Starfleet Music Pool DJs. You’ve gotta love it.”
With over 100 thousand registered DJ’s in the pool worldwide, it makes STARFLEET MUSIC not only the oldest and longest surviving record pool (24 years and counting) but the largest in the world. The title Mr Dance Music is an appropriate on as Ronnie has been successful at making people dance to music they have never heard before, helping to shape the dance scene 40 years by getting the newest and latest into the hands that spin it. Ronnie has also been key in creating the “crossover” music genre being the first to send the Urban sound to Dance Club DJ’s. From the Days of Vinyl to being the first in the Pools to send the new Digital Music Files out to his DJ’s Ronnie has been the Dance Scene Pioneer. Ronnie has met and worked with some of the biggest names in the music biz from Sylvester, Michael Jackson, P Diddy, Taylor Dane, Gloria Gaynor, The Village People, Kristine W , Vanilla Ice and Cece Penniston just to name a few, he continues to do so and has a story to go along with all of them. Ronnie is well respected amongst the other pools, A&R Reps and recording artist alike which puts, never a discouraging word is heard when it comes to Mr Dance Music.
