Who is Funkin Matt?
Ever since his first hit back in 2007 with “Bouncing Harbour Remix”, Matt has been apart of the growing house scene, delivering everything from techy electro bangers like “I Wish” (Fool’s Gold) to future house bliss in “Rapture” (on Diplo’s label Mad Decent) and providing quality music with room for experimentation and genre twisting.
He has released music on labels like Tiesto’s Musical Freedom, Spinnin, Armada and Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak while also doing remixes and singles on major labels such as Sony, Warner and Universal. His official Mariah Carey remix “You’re Mine” reached #1 on the Billboard Dance/Club Chart as part of the Remix EP, as well as giving Matt his first #1. Outside of the club world, Matt’s collaboration with Chris Lie on the track “Let’s Go Deep” was a big radio hit in Norway and proved he could also create more mellow music as a showcase of his versatility as a producer. He also got featured on Ubisoft’s triple-A videogame “The Crew” with the rave anthem “MAD” (Mad Decent), and has done guest mixes for both Diplo and Tiesto
on their respective shows on BBC1.
Funkin Matt has been a big part of the Future House sound with tracks like ‘Elephant’, ‘Aurora’ and ‘Coda’, aswell as exploring deeper vibes with tracks like ‘Aeon’, ‘Phoenix’ and ‘Interlinked’. His 2019’s biggest hit was ‘Feel So’ with Zeds Dead, and 2020 started hard with futuristic club banger ‘Vapor’ which is turning out to be an unexpected Tiktok favorite. After this he returned back to the Heldeep label with the energetic future house gem ‘White House’ followed by his collab with Oliver Heldens: ‘Somebody’. Funkin Matt is the unique mix of instant recognizable melodies, meticulous sound design and beats that makes you dance.
From A17-M to A23-M
“I first heard PSI Audio monitors some years ago when I was in the market to upgrade my near field studio monitors. I had never heard about PSI Audio before, and was actually there to listen to all the other usual suspects. When I heard the A17-M I was blown away, the transient response, natural sound and surprising low end from those small boxes was a great surprise. Then fast forward to present day and I’ve moved into a bigger and better designed room, and finally had the opportunity to get the A23-M’s.
They are everything the A17-M’s are, but have more headroom, lower extension and a deeper more immersive soundstage. Continuing on previous projects felt really
natural, and I know these will improve my workflow especially when mixing bass and busy arrangements. And lastly I love the ability to just turn it up loud and really
feel the music in your body without any distortion or harshness”.
