Over the past few years, Matoma has made himself a house-hold name in electronic music, and increasingly in the mainstream charts.
His sound is infectious – the Norwegian rapper is behind Becky Hill’s ‘False Alarm’ which went to #3 on the UK charts last year, as well as The Vamp’s mega-hit ‘All Night’.
Matoma is also behind the official remixes of Astrid S’ ‘2AM’, One Direction’s ‘Perfect’ and Coldplay’s ‘Adventure of a Lifetime’.
Alex Noize interviewed Matoma before he closed Friday night at Firefly Festival about his journey to dance music stardom and they rap Notorious B.I.G.

15th June 2017 | Music
Every week, Myles McCaulskey picks his Top 5 favourite hip-hop tracks that he's been listening to over the past week. We reveal the list right here, every Wednesday.
1. Major Lazer – Know No Better (feat. Camila Cabello, Travi$ Scott & Quavo)
Major Lazer are so consistent with their music over the past 10 years. The collaboration between Travis Scott & Quavo has always proven successful & the additional of Camilla Cabello strengthens that! Plus every 50 streams this gets Major Lazer are donating studio time to musicians in the Caribbean so get streaming!
2. Amber Mark – Monsoon
The soulful calm sounds of Amber Mark and her beautiful 3.33AM EP. The visuals, shot in Rajasthan, are stunning and the vocals match that.
3. Ray BLK – Doing Me
Ray BLK is so uplifting and her lyrics are relatable in some way or another. I’m a fan of her work, so you know she had to make the list this week!
4. Hardy Caprio – Unsigned (feat. One Acen)
Hardy is really making a name for himself this year & this link up with One Acen is another example of his talents! Look forward to hearing more from the 21 year old!
5. French Montana – Unforgettable (feat. Swae Lee & J HUS) (Remix)
Didn’t expect this to happen. Glad it did. It’s been on repeat since it was released last week.
