The last few years, the world has seen a massive wave of Scandinavian house DJs emerging. First Avicii, then Kygo and now all we want is Matoma.
The Norwegian DJ initially gained popularity for his remixes of pop songs. His throwback remix of The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Old Thing Back” led to record companies expressing interest in his productions.
The 24 year old Matoma (whose real name is Tom Lagergren)produces music in the tropical house genre, and has created his own sound with his remixes.
His biggest hits are fun remixes of “old” hits, such as “Payphone” by Maroon 5. Matoma brings life to old songs, and we love it.
His first original song “Try Me” is found on Jason Derulo’s new
album “4,” featuring Jennifer Lopez.
Matoma is playing The Showbox in Seattle Friday, Oct. 16. If you can’t make it to his concert, check him out on Spotify or Soundcloud.
And of course we will play his songs on our show Thomas & Molly in the Morning on Mast Radio, every Tuesday 8-9a.m.
