…plus he’s also announed a huge World Tour, for Spring 2017
PARTY AT YOUR PLACE!
Be sure to check it out when his tour hits the UK in February 2017!
After a mammoth U.S. tour and DJ sets at key festivals such as Coachella, Tomorrowland, Lollapalooza and Electric Zoo, Matoma can now announce the biggest headline tour of his career to date. Taking in shows across both North America and Europe, Matoma’s ‘Party At Your Place! World Tour’kicks off in Costa Mesa, California and will conclude with two homecoming shows in Oslo, Norway. To celebrate the announcement Matoma drops an awesome live video diary from his recent massive bus tour of the US, check it HERE.
Matoma recently released ‘False Alarm’ (with Becky Hill), his latest and biggest track (69 million Spotify streams) to be added to his innovative ‘Hakuna Matoma’ album project. It demonstrates Matoma’s ability to reach beyond the confines of tropical house with elements of urban, dance, pop and Caribbean sounds within its palette. ‘Hakuna Matoma’ continues to go from strength-to-strength as it expands and evolves over time on streaming media platforms.
Matoma recently refreshed the groundbreaking playlist-meets-album concept by adapting it to become the ‘Hakuna Matoma – Midnight Edition’. Leading with ‘All Night’ – a collaboration with The Vamps that has attracted over 3 million streams a week since its release – the ‘Midnight Edition’ features collabs and remixes with artists including Coldplay, Jason Derulo, Akon, Popcaan, Wale, Sean Paul, Nico & Vinz, Becky Hill and Dua Lipa.
In the past two years, Matoma has amassed well over half a billion streams. With 8 million monthly listeners on Spotify alone, he ranks higher than long established heavyweights such as Pharrell Williams, Snoop Dogg and U2. His biggest tracks include ‘Old Thing Back’ with Notorious B.I.G. (215million combined streams across Spotify, YouTube and SoundCloud), ‘Try Me’ (126million streams) and ‘Running Out’ (124million streams).
Needless to say, we’re stoked about Matoma‘s upcoming UK dates in 2017 and are really hoping to catch him somewhere along the way! Please share this post and your love for this talented guy!
We’ve featured Matoma before (quite recently) but he’s back with one hell of an upbeat belter; this time featuring the legendary Sean Paul, plus the awesome and talented KStewart.
The Norwegian tropical house producer (aka Tom Stræte Lagergren) has now released a string of singles and remixes, and must be gearing up to drop an album soon, but in the meantime, this single has got me anticipating his future releases and collaborations! I mean, Sean Paul is a pretty big collaborator to have on board and KStewart is an incredible, upcoming songstress.

Matt’s Song Selections
There are so many songs on this playlist that I just love! They’re either current songs which right now are giving me that summer feeling, or are a few years old but hold memories for me.
Some of the songs I’ve chosen include;
Jason Derulo – ‘Try Me’ featuring Jennifer Lopez and Matoma – this song’s got a distinct dancehall sound and captured me instantly. The song is on Derulo’s new album, Everything Is 4 and although it’s an album track, it’s the perfect opening track for our summer playlist!
Sam Smith – ‘Lay Me Down (Tiësto Remix)’ – this remix is incredible! I’m a big fan of remixes anyway, but Tiësto’s euphoric, spacious sound on this track, has transformed an already beautiful song, into a electronica dream!
Walk The Moon – ‘Avalanche’ – an album track from their latest release, Talking Is Hard, this song’s guitar sounds make it an upbeat, melodic song. It reminds me of something out of a sunny scene in Made In Chelsea or on the beach.
One Direction – ‘Stockholm Syndrome’ – OK, so I feel I should justify this selection! One Direction, no matter what you think of them, have written some damn good songs; this being one of them! This song has a clear 80s quality to it, it sort of reminds me (not sure why!) of Climie Fisher‘s ‘Love Changes’.
Tyler James – ‘Why Do I Do?’ – I used to love this song when it was released back in 2004 and the jazz-pop qualities of this song are unique and captivating. It’s damn catchy too!
Fall Out Boy – ‘Favorite Record’ – I love Fall Out Boy and they have gone from strength to strength over the years. I love the production on this track and its use of certain effects on the vocals and guitars make it intriguing to listen to. It’s lyrics are also fairly reminiscent and that for me is a quality of summer; making memories to reminisce in years to come.
Michael Jackson – ‘Love Never Felt So Good‘ featuring Justin Timberlake – this song has previously been a #FeelGoodFriday track of mine and it’s not hard to tell why! It’s a perfectly sculpted pop song with the uplifting sounds of Michael Jackson’s vocals, married with modern Timbaland production and support of Justin Timberlake’s voice.
Razorlight – ‘Rip It Up’ – released back in 2004, this has many memories of countless parties I went to whilst at my secondary school and just makes me think of times I spent with friends. It’s energetic tempo makes for a hard-hitting belter.
Vance Joy – ‘Riptide’ – this song is a personal favourite of mine; I was once shown this track by someone I admire for overcoming their fear of performing and its California surfing sound is the perfect calming close to our playlist.
My other selections include songs by; Ariana Grande, Two Door Cinema Club, Train, DJ Fresh featuring Rita Ora, Sigma, Frankmusik, Clean Banditand Shift K3Y.
That’s it from me! I hope you like the songs I’ve contributed to the playlist and that they might help shape some memories for you too. Please share this playlist with your friends. Matt x
Max’s Song Selections
I’m really excited to share this playlist with you guys, it’s packed full of great tunes listen to this summer. Our selection is quite varied in styles and genres as we hope to capture all the highs and lows of your summer through the playlist.
The song I added to this playlist are:
Dan Croll – ‘From Nowhere’ – this song is just far too cheery to not have in your summer playlist! The upbeat riffs and instruments make this song a good listen.
Only Real – ‘When This Begins’ – to be honest I’m in love with this whole album. But this tune fits best with our Summer vibes, it’s probably one you’ll put on, sit back and relax to. If you like ‘Only Real’ be sure to check his feature in my #WildCardWednesday post.
Toddla T – ‘Take It Back’ – although this song isn’t too recent, I think some clean Drum n Bass is essential for a good playlist. ‘Take It Back’ has some beautiful vocals over this great backing track.
La Roux – ‘Uptight Downtown’ – This song grabbed me by it’s instrumentals, it’s on the verge of a pretty interesting ‘funk’ track. Also I personally love La Roux’s voice regardless, it’s so clean and natural sounding. Her songs should defiantly feature in your summer this year!
SBTRKT – ‘IMO’ – this song is a little different to the others. It’s a very mellow tune, with an overall softness to the instrumental. It’s a beautiful song nonetheless, some really nice production went into this!
These are all of the songs I’ve decided to choose for the summer; enjoy!
We’ve gathered only the best songs which are sure to make your summer special. We want this summer to be one you’ll remember for the best reasons! Check out the full playlist on Spotify. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
