j matthews

Under the moniker “DJ Nickles,” J Matthews has made incalculable cameo appearances at nearly every Twin Cities nightclub and multiple raves since the early 90s, in addition to high-profile performances at the long running “Bump” at the Phoenix Landing in Cambridge, MA. Today, Matthews continues to showcase his talent throughout the cities while holding down his residency at First Avenue and working tirelessly on his International on-line radio show “Funk Yeah FM” on ChicagoHouseFM.com. He has quickly gained respect from both clubbers and ravers alike and after many years of hard work, he’s no doubt a Twin Cities staple.

“Growing up with a family that has a love for musical expression has certainly helped me to be a DJ. Plus, being a part of the Midwest dance community has taught me so much about this music, and how rich and diverse it can be. I have been graced with the opportunity to have house as a part of my life, and I will never take it for granted.” – j matthews
