Matt Waites (aka Nightmoves) has already received widespread recognition for his ability to deliver the kind of set that makes those who love great dance music sit up and take notice (and hit the dancefloor). When most other DJs are bludgeoning the crowd with the same over-played bangers, Matt makes it his mission to weave together a melodic, danceable and, above all, fresh tapestry of rare disco, underground house and electro that has made him one of the rising stars of the scene.
Matt got his first break at Nottingham's legendary Liars Club night and quickly secured a fortnightly residency there. This paved the way for further sets at Bugged Out!, The End and Plastic People among others, as well as the opportunity to remix a then little-known band called Klaxons. The mix was quickly snapped up by Kitsune, providing Matt with his first 12" release, and was subsequently hammered by everyone from Erol Alkan to Simian Mobile Disco, earning recognition as one of Mixmag's top remixes of the year in 2006.
More remixes have since followed, for major label artists including Robbie Williams, Roisin Murphy, Ok Go, Friendly Fires, The Infadels, Alphabeat, Freeform Five, Metronomy & Late of the Pier. These remixes have been played and supported all over the world by DJs from Adam Freeland to Erol Alkan and some of Matt's all-time favourites, the Unabombers, In Flagranti, Tim Sweeney and the Glimmers.
Matt's DJ schedule has since taken him to international venues including Tape Club in Berlin, Distortion Festival in Copenhagen, Razzmatazz in Barcelona, and others in Moscow, California, Portugal & Australia. Back in the UK, Matt has played regular slots at Bugged Out! at The End, Fabric, Death Disco at The Arches, and Wax:On in Newcastle, Leeds and Brighton. Recent career highlights have included touring with Simian Mobile Disco as their support DJ and sets at Cocadisco, Glastonbury 2008 and the opening night of Matter, Fabric's new super club in The O2. Matt also recently joined the likes of James Murphy, Juan Maclean, and the whole DFA crew in recording a mix for Tim Sweeney's legendary NYC radio show, 'Beatsinspace'.
