Today sees the electronic music industry evolving at fleeting speed, rising with talent like Croatian raised Matroda. Bringing in the explosive bass house and garage impressions, the studio sets no limits for this trailblazing producer and this week’s DJ to Watch.
Taking early influences from the likes of Led Zeppelin, Frank Sinatra, and The Beatles, while introducing classical training across the violin, drums, and keyboard, the Matroda sound is well rounded and multifaceted. His first career remix of SNBRN’s “California” with Chris Lake in 2015 proved an electric festival vibe-chaser gaining support from Diplo, Calvin Harris, and Major Lazer. Hitting the #2 spot on Beatport’s main chart upon its entrance and #1 on its house charts, it was a no-brainer the edit polled in at #5 on SirusFM’s 2015 songs of the year.
In 2016 we saw him kick off the year with the new bass-house anthem “Chronic” which has only recently seen the light of the day, but already being supported by some of the industry’s leading heavyweights like Dillon Francis, Martin Garrix, Porter Robinson, Knife Party, Deorro, and Hardwell.
In more recent months, we’ve seen Matroda take huge strides in his career. From killing it at his LA debut at the renowned Avalon Hollywood, to dropping his Shut it Down EP, to being plastered all over today’s hottest lineup, our DJ to Watch is being just that, watched closely.
For RB’s second annual Goldrush Music Festival, we are bringing the California vibes with Chris Lake and of course, Matroda. Having both these deeply talented artists coming out at the same festival is an event for the books, grab your tickets here.
