MATRODA releases heater bass house EP, ‘Unfinished Business’

MATRODA releases heater bass house EP, ‘Unfinished Business’Matroda Unfinished Business Ep Min

MATRODA has released his new two-track Unfinished Business EP. Bass house heads rejoice as “H8TERS” has that spine-tingling and ear-piercing low-end-high-end combo that made REZZ‘s “Edge” so popular.

“Kicks,” produced alongside Jace Mek, keeps up with g-house rhythms and percussion-based melody plays. Pay mind to the kick sound, which sounds like it has a detuned balloon rubbing against a leather sofa. Both tracks off the EP have unique sonic harmonies after the drop, creating a space for MATRODA in the bass house scene.

The 23 year-old Croatian-raised house producer has been busy this month. Aside from the Unfinished Business project, he’s also released a single with Dillon Nathaniel, “No Doubt,” off Tchami‘s CONFESSION imprint, along with an official remix to Malaa‘s “Bling Bling.”  He’s known for releasing popular edits that combine rap and bass house edits such as one for Childish Gambino‘s “This Is America” and Migos’ “Bad And Boujee.”

To celebrate the EP, Matroda is embarking on his Unfinished Business North American Tour starting September 22.

The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed.


On Planets enlists Hanz for some experimental, downtempo serenity—the latest from New York-based Lowly Palace—ideal for winding down after a long, strenuous week or an afterparty setting.

Wide Boys re-think Cheat Codes‘ enormous success, “Only You,” revving up the tempo, in addition to  adding a series of playful vocal chops for an effervescent effect.

Jocelyn Alice joins R3HAB for the warm-weather affair that is “Radio Silence,” evocative of a thawing sun setting over the week.

Matroda and Dillon Nathaniel introduce a little anarchy for the weekend, with deviously enticing house track, “No Doubt,” the newest release on Tchami‘s CONFESSION label, packed with stuttering switch-ups and pummeling sub bass.

Barong Family favorite, Mike Cervello, unveils electro-step-influenced “The Light,” aided by intrepid female vocals and momentous synth progressions.

Russian brethren known for their work with industry greats like Steve Angello and Martin Garrix, Matisse & Sadko, converge with Raiden to paint, “Light Me Up,” a technicolor tapestry of magnificently executed progressive house.

DiRTY RADiO breaks it down one more time with feeling and funk for instrumental synth-laden, “Pleasures.”

Lane 8‘s This Never Happened-housed “Timecode,” is the newest delicately deep offering from Anderholm, following up his collaborative piano-driven effort “Bluebird” with Lane 8, himself.

Jesse And The Wolf traces the overpowering and highly volatile aspects of heartbreak in “Without You.”

LyLoh makes electro hurt so good with irreverent guitar chops, and violin synths to create a meticulously chaotic soundscape that is celebratory by nature.

Pop-oriented Youngr carves a soulful center for Phats & Small’s “Turn Around,” the latest on Armada Music.

The iconic Desert Hearts Records invites R. Fentz for a distorted, swirling tech house trip through furtive ’90s club culture called, “More Than Love.”

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 46

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 46Deters Beat Lab@0.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA music editor and staff writer Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.


G-house guru BIJOU is back with another sultry heater, “Young & Reckless,” featuring Way. The new Dim Mak record continues the Arizona native’s tour de force through the burgeoning world of g-house. It’s stamped with a relentless bassline and and fierce vocals from Way. “The vocal with Way came from a long-standing relationship I’ve had with his manager that started out with me buying shoes from him at Finish Line,” BIJOU says of the track. “Fast forward to today and we have worked on numerous tracks together with this one being hands down our best.”


This week’s drum & bass find got me addicted so quickly. Foreign Concept’s rework of SKS’ “Thousand Lives” has a gorgeous air of mystery about it, and the UK artist does a stellar job of amping up the intensity in a way that’s both a little dark and euphoric. While the full track stands at more than five minutes, this three-minute preview is available as a part of Vandal LTD’s Modern Soul 4 LP.


Texan producer Prismo has morphed Satellite Mode’s subtle pop track, “Gave It All,” into something much more forceful. He toys with singer Jessica Carvo’s vocals, weaving them in and out of an intense pattern of bass he’s crafted. Prismo’s ability to juxtapose this powerful style of bass music with Satellite Mode’s delicate form of indie-pop further demonstrates his strong proficiency in electronic music in all forms.


Tom Budin continues his consistent release schedule with a version of Noy’s “Kamikaze.” This gnarly bass house rework hits hard from the get-go, shocking the listener head on at the minute mark with a speaker-shattering bass. The original, too, featured an astoundingly deep bass, but Budin’s morphed the track into a more dance floor-accessible rendition. New Haven’s verses maintain the fiery intensity of the original as Budin works his magic on the beat.


Matroda‘s teamed up with RICCI on his latest original, a feisty house offering on Dim Mak called “Caliente (Na Na Na).” The collaboration offers a clean combination of house and trap and shows both artists in their finest form: crafting the most hard-hitting bass house they can.

Amsterdam Dance Event

The most important day of every week: New Music Friday. As each week brings a succession of new music from some of electronic music’s biggest artists, here’s a selection of tracks that shouldn’t be missed.

Daktyl enlists MOONZz and lets his creativity run wild on “Weather.”

The Him keeps it simple. The Spinnin’ Records release, “Broken Love” delights with its simple loop and chord progression.

For the kids: Jonas Blue taps the former Vine stars, Jack & Jack, for the bright and bouncy “Rise.”

Said The Sky paints cinematic soundscapes with the Matthew Koma-featured “Over Getting Over You.”

Moodymann dives deep into Detroit funk with his bass-heavy Nightmares On Wax rework.

Just A Gent traverses the interplanetary realm at light speed with Thandi Phoenix on the rave-inspired floor filler, “Space Odyssey.”

Nitro Fun gets personal on “Time Goes By,” which he says was inspired by some personal realizations about time, love, and the universe.

Ashley Wallbridge releases a trance track fit for the Greek mythology pantheon it references.

QUIX switches it into high gear with Matroda as the two break down the barriers of bass with the burgeoning “LAMBO.”

Not for the faint-hearted: The quickly ascending Duckworthsound, who’s already got releases on Klash, Insomniac, and Tchami’s Confession label, drops off the secret weapon of the summer.

Tourist draws early-ODESZA comparisons with absolutely ethereal Rostam rework.

Space Laces is throwing massive elbows in sinister, cinematic track “Kaiju.”

MUST DIE! marries future bass and dubstep, carrying SLANDER and SAYMYNAME‘s heavy-hitter to unforeseen heights.

Ookay switches lanes, and releases his first rapping foray. There’s a hot summer of hip-hop on the horizon, and if “Desperado” is any indication of where Ookay is headed, he seems sure to corral some excellence.

Matroda delivers piping-hot house on his ‘Shut It Down’ EP

This post was originally published on this site

Croatian bass music producer, Matroda, has aligned himself with Monstercat, one of dance music’s premiere labels, for his latest EP, Shut It Down. 

The 21-year-old’s first fierce success came when he teamed up with house icon, Chris Lake, for their “California” remix, which topped Beatport charts, racking up millions of streams across multiple platforms. In the past, Matroda has experimented with a number of styles – most extensively dubstep. However, he seems to have found his niche with his nefariously nuanced brand of house.

Shut It Down is deliciously wicked. The EP has captured the most riot-inducing elements of g-house, garage, and bass house; the result is a diabolically playful sonic landscape. The lead track, “The Beginning,” throws the listener for a loop with its wompy dubstep and trap elements. The rest of the EP more or less follows a 4-by-4 pattern, with a bit of breakbeat sprinkled in on “Damn Floor.” Matroda proves himself a master of vocal chops, which are suffused throughout the EP, seamlessly aligning themselves with the stuttering bass and overall buoyant nature of tracks like “Shut It Down,” “Boom Bap,” and “The Drive.”
