Hakuna Matoma! Tom Stræte Lagergren, referred to as Matoma, creates an atmosphere strictly filled with good vibes. This Norwegian tropical house music producer will be hitting the road to Columbia for his North American Tour.
If your tired of EDM and dubstep music but still want that happy-go-lucky party feeling, look no further. You might be familiar with his first Notorious B.I.G. Remix, “Old Thing Back”. With almost 30 million views on YouTube, you will remember B.I.G at every pool party or pre-game. #R.I.P.
In just five months, Matoma went from no one to having over 10 million plays on Spotify. The first time I listened to him, I was that obsessed sorority girl listening to one song over and over again. “Running Out” featuring Astrid S was my go-to song. Long drives, pool gatherings, workouts, studying, you name it; this song was playing. Give it a listen:
Matoma’s song “False Alarm” ft. Becky Hill is a song that everyone should set their alarm clock to. Whether it’s the electronic background, the strong chorus, or the Adele like voice of Becky Hill, it gives off enough energy to fuel your entire day.
Now check out this pre-Matoma Spotify playlist to get you ready for the show or any night out on the town!
Oh and did I forget to mention that CHEAT CODES is one of the openers? Looks like you’ll be showing up extra early. This electronic trio’s music is similar to Avicii and Swedish House Mafia. It didn’t take long for their music to gain traction on social media and streaming websites. You’re probably most familiar with their song “Sex” that has over 300 million plays on Spotify. Their music video might be a little too much for the eyes, but they really Taco ’bout sex.
In June, they came out with “Can’t Fight It”, one of my new favorites and soon to be yours.
“Love is composing electronic music with groovy bass lines, percussion and synths. I love music with a great dynamic pump, but also music that is produced with soul and passion. To me this is essential to create an atmosphere filled with good vibes and tones” – Matoma
See you Monday!
