Matt Yates


A self-confessed Vinyl Junkie, Matt’s lifetime love of music was formed in primary school aged 7, where he used to play records on the school turntable as the other children filed in for assembly. He would turn the volume UP for The Theme from Black Beauty and Gustav Holst’ The Planets! which laid the foundations for an eclectic and discerning taste in music. In the 90’s and 00’s he DJ’d at Bars in Manchester, House Parties and Weddings spinning Soul, Funk, Disco, House Music and Jazz Dance.

Today, Lymm resident and Family man Matt remains a passionate record collector. His guilty pleasure is digging through crates of dusty records in charity stores and record shops to find gems to include on his Mixtape show on Lymm Radio.
