Under the radar but definitely not new to the scene, J Matthews has been DJing since the late 90s at nightclubs and raves throughout the Twin Cities and Boston, MA. Under the moniker “DJ Nickles,” J Matthews rocked out the bangin, jackin, funky, and disco flared house music classics in such iconic venues as First Avenue’s Sunday Night Dance Party, Quest Nightclub, The 90’s nightclub, and various other nightclubs across the Twin Cities. In 2003, J Matthews relocated to Boston, taking on said name, and continued to showcase his talents at high-profile events, including the long-running Bump at the Phoenix Landing in Cambridge, MA. The distinct sounds of the East Coast have further enriched his selection and style, with influences that include Mark Farina, Greenskeepers, No Assembly Firm, The Sound Republic, Troydon, Jason Hodges, Brett Johnson and more. Now J Matthews is back in the 612 and playing with some of the best local and national talent at venues including: Sound Bar, Foundation, First Avenue Nightclub, Caterpillar Lounge, Club Underground, Element Nightclub and more.
"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
