One-Armed DJ's Inspirational Story

Henry Baker

DJ Matt Howes was in a near-death traffic accident on the island of Crete in 2011. He would have died, but gravel and dirt from the road kept his artery from bleeding out. Unfortunately though, the injury still caused him to have to have his right arm amputated. Arms, for a DJ, are very important to the craft, so the incident could have potentially ruined his career as well. But Howes returned to do a set two weeks later, in front of over 1,000 people. He knocked it out of the park, and continues to wow in increasingly popular DJ sets. He also does work to promote 'The Limbless Association,' a charity that works to help people who have gone through what he did.
