In the quickly rising bass house sphere, Matroda is emerging as one of the must-follow artists on the darker side of the genre. His productions utilize unique wonky sounds without ever sacrificing the vicious bite that makes his tracks so impactful. His 2019 album, The RED Tape, proved he could sustain that energy across an extended release, and his latest release shows he has no plans of stopping any time soon.

“Walk In The Spot” is centered on a vocal cut from LMFAO‘s 2011 sensation “Sexy And I Know It.” However, the playful nature of the sample is stripped away as Matroda builds a bass house hellscape around it. The track’s drop features elements reminiscent of Walker & Royce‘s absurd production complimented by hard Habstrakt-esque synth hits. All in all, Matroda’s last contribution to 2019 proves he’s poised for a massive 2020.

Wax Motif and Matroda pay homage to Missy Elliot in ‘Lose Control’

G-house A-team Wax Motif and Matroda have aligned on their latest track “Lose Control,” which takes cues from Missy Elliott’s original party-starter released back in 2005.

The song is only the second official release from Motif’s newly minted label, Divided Souls, which so far has showcased only his own tracks, with some featured guests. The seminal track from the imprint invited legendary producer and rapper, Diddy, highlighting Motif’s ability to seamlessly blend the worlds of hip-hop and house.

The updated dance floor destroyer uses the familiar “Lose Control” vocal sample from the original before dropping into a package of heavy bass, arpeggiated plucks, and their iconic pitched-down vocals. The track takes a fresh turn on the original, which was produced by Elliott, with features from Ciara and Fatman Scoop. The rendition is gritty, strange, and destined for any low-light locale where house music is enjoyed.

Matroda updates Armand Van Helden classic, ‘You Don’t Know Me’

Matroda updates Armand Van Helden classic, ‘You Don’t Know Me’Matroda

As a tribute to one of house music’s legends, swiftly ascending bass house producer, Matroda, has released his remix of Armand Van Helden’s infamous, disco-styled dance track “You Don’t Know Me.”

The remix teases a loop of the recognizable melody before Matroda adds his stuttering, G-house style. Complete with wubs, hard hitting percussion, and a groovy bassline, the modernized rendition gives the 1988 single a punchy reboot, paying faithful homage to the funky original. 

Matroda’s album of earlier this year, The RED Tape, alongside a headlining tour of the same name, is keeping fans busy until 2020, which assuredly has lots more music in store for the multi-talented, young producer.

Orbit Playlist: Matroda readies his ‘Red Tape’-themed repertoire ahead of AMF debut

One of Dim Mak‘s newest dancefloor weapons, Matroda, recently rounded a number of his like-minded, heavy house/bass-affiliated counterparts for the deluxe arm of his double-sided The RED Tape EP. BIJOU, ANGELZ, and fellow Dim Mak habitue, JACKNIFE, were just a few to toss their high-voltage offering into the RED Tape remix cap.

Following a number of auspicious stops on the high-priority festival front this past season (Spring Awakening, Ubbi Dubbi, Das Energi), the Croatian DJ-producer was recently invited by Destructo (Gary Richards: ever one to bolster fresh, new talent in dance music via his events) to spin at the second edition of his downtown LA-housed All My Friends festival this year, on October 19.

Before that, though, Matroda cooked up Dancing Astronaut‘s dynamic-dancefloor-acquainted listeners a pre-festival playlist consisting of his favorite selects of the moment. The soundtrack arrives in a similar vein to his latest multi-track showing, spanning the summertime, effervescent energy of Tchami‘s new “Rainforest,” to the caustic, ear-searing bassline of Noizu‘s “Jungle.” Upping the ante, he offered insights as to why he deemed each track worthy of inclusion.

Find the playlist/Matroda’s comments below:

Matroda feat. Dances With White Girls – Bang This is a song I produced last year with the legend Dances With White Girls and is part of The RED Tape EP. It always works well at the festivals.

Matroda – Kulio
My newest track. I will play it live for the first time among with many other IDS.

Walker & Royce, VNSSA – Word
Word? Word? Woooord! I like what Walker & Royce are doing and this song goes off hard every time I play it. I did my own version of it. A festival version.

Valentino Khan – Pony
Valentino Khan’s latest EP House Party is dope. Pony is my fav’ track.

Sonny Fodera – Insane 

One of my fav’ house producers…cant go wrong. This is an insane track called “Insane.”

Tchami – Rainforest
Tchami always impress with something new and fresh. Dope track all around! 

Mike Vale – Music Is The Answer
A good friend of mine delivered big time. This song was number one on Beatport for few weeks. It’s a dope remake of a classic.

Ship Wrek – Need It
I like versatility in their production. They nailed this one. Need it!

FREAK ON – Juicy
This one is more for the after parties. Deep, but still very dope.

Noizu – Jungle
I’m a big fan of a drop here. Noizu is the man.

Go deep, then go deeper. Matroda and Loge21 are diving to the bass depths in their new collaboration, “Raise Em Up,” out now on Mad Decent.

Fans of both artists knew spotless sound design and an irresistible bass punch would be the result when these two notable acts came together, and that’s exactly what happened. “Raise Em Up” introduces itself with a simple enough house kick but soon morphs into something more complex as filtered vocals make an entrance and a wonky background melody wobbles in and out. The drop presents something new entirely, using the element of surprise to catch the listener off guard.

These two artists delightfully plunge their fans into their own realm of madness, delivering a bass house installment that’s sure to thrill fans of all house music persuasions.
