Matt Thompson

Sent in by Kamey: Me and my mate were chatting about the best Manchester DJ and for me it is Matt Thompson. The guy played everything on his late night show on Kiss FM about 13 years ago. No station had a DJ with such variety. All genres were blended and what I loved most was Matt would always tell you what the track was and who it was by, making me spend all my spare cash at Piccadilly Records. His night, with Mark Goodwin, at the Phoenix club was just as unpredictable and varied: 1920s quirky tracks mixed in with drum and bass, mixed in with jazz, mixed in with rock, mixed in with hip hop mixed in with everything else that would make your ears drool. If he is still dj-ing, please let me know as that guy helped develop my musical ears and always played tracks to delight and entice.
