Norwegian DJ/producer and sparkplug for the tropical house movement, Matoma, drops Feeling Right (And Everything Is Nice), his second original since breaking out in early 2015.
Matoma’s latest is another 100-BPM tropical house affair with vocals from DC rapper Wale, however with an added island vibe straight from the source thanks to Jamaican dancehall artist Popcaan, who continues his crossover success after being featured on Jamie xx’ album In Colour. Matoma discussed his concept along with the upload.
“My inspiration for this single is a mixture between old school rhythms combined with a chill tropical flavor. When I created the track I wanted to bring Jamaican vibes together with rap vibes and ended up doing a collaboration together with Popcaan & Wale. I am really proud of this track because I have created something original and inspirational and I hope you like it. This song is all about meeting challenges in life but if you are surrounded with good energy from your love ones “everything is nice”. My energy comes from you guys and this track is for my fans and supporters.”
His latest comes as his second original, high-profile collaboration since his definitive Notorious B.I.G. bootleg Old Thing Back that made him an icon of the sound and landed him a slot on Big Beat/Warner with a second release to follow featuring Jason Derulo and Jennifer Lopez.
