As long as Matoma’s crafting blissful, stuttering and crashing atmospheric pop jams like Running Out, the tropical house sub-genre’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
Matoma’s turned heads of late with debut “album” Hakuna Matoma basically being a constantly unfurling playlist across a slew of streaming media platforms. However, the Astrid S-featuring single, much like Popcaan and Wale’s glistening rap-off Feeling Right (Everything Is Nice), is much more meeting known standards of pop dominance. Skittering trap drums on the bottom end and colorful chords, pan flute-style synth stabs, and plaintive vocals on top? This one certainly sets a beautiful mood.
