SPOTIFY | iTUNES | APPLE MUSIC | TIDAL – HERE
Getting his start as the youngest music supervisor in tv and film history at only 18-years-old while working on MTV’s 2011 series, SKINS, Matt FX had a busy 2016, adding more than a few notable accomplishments to his unique resumé. Described by the New York Times as a “prodigal music supervisor,” the now 25 year-old New York native is responsible for curating the music for the Comedy Central hit, Broad City as well as many other shows including the upcoming series, Detroiters. Matt FX was also the resident music guru of MTV’s flagship live show, Wonderland, where he interviewed artists such as Tinashe, Flatbush Zombies, Lizzo, Russ, and more. Described by THUMP as a “nightlife institution,” Matt FX is an in-demand touring DJ and is now ready to pull the curtain on his work as a solo producer and debut his first-ever official release with his remix of Richie Quake’s “Hesitate.”
The bi-coastal production behind “Hesitate” sees Matt FX take Brooklyn singer/songwriter, Richie Quake’s original song into the lab for a dancehall-meets-house party jam make-over with verses from LA rapper, Yung Skrrt, and NY rapper, Mari. With air horns, bass kicks and Wine rhythms abundant, the posse cut is a DJ Khaled-esque meeting of minds that translates into an undeniable crossover pop anthem.
Matt FX’s remix of “Hesitate” is not the first time that listeners have enjoyed his original music. In 2015, Matt FX’s NY-based collective, Scooter Island, whose sound Noisey described as “a melange that flits from R&B to hip-hop-inflected chill-pop to tropicalia-M.I.A.-vibes,” released a debut EP, that featured a number of up-and-coming artists and producers such as Synead, S’natra, Junglepussy, Taro, and more.
Looking ahead in 2017, fans can expect a steady stream of content from Matt FX’s mad workload, including hosting duties on a both new web series and podcast, many more solo productions and remixes, plenty of music supervision for tv and film (including the highly-anticipated Broad City Season 4) and much more. Most of all, Matt is excited for the release of Synead’s “Tropicao,” a track and music video which he co-produced and directed last year during Carnival in Trinidad.
