Croatian raised electronic music talent Matroda breaking down boundaries with new 2-track massive singles ‘Gotta Let You Go/Touchin’ Me’ via Insomniac Records and announces winter/spring tour dates
His versatility has been littered courteously across the Insomniac catalog via a string of releases stretching back all the way to his label debut in 2020. So, it’s only fitting his newest offering would see him splitting between both ends of the spectrum like the chameleonic champion that he is.
‘Gotta Let You Go’, a diva-friendly vocal wails without a shred of remorse, belting out the cold hard truth over bright piano stabs that scamper above a bed of pumping percussion. Its deceptively upbeat nature serves as a pleasant reminder that there’s always sunshine to be had at the end of a storm.
‘Touchin’ Me’ pulsating basslines and shuffling drums ride atop the crest of a crescendo, until the chunky synth lead alternates its pitch through sporadic quick bursts above vocal chops and a mighty hook calling out the track’s namesake. A swelling ricochet leads us into the breakdown, eventually flaring up to make full contact through its thumping tactile sequence. On both tracks, Matroda shows us yet again that he has his hands in all the right places.
Matroda has made a habit out of pushing his own limits on the Insomniac imprint, returning regularly to make a run at almost any influence that happens to pique his interest. From the brooding, nostalgia laced “When We We Young,” the pumping piano jam “Lifting,” all the way through to his moody heartbreak anthem “Forget It” (which is closing in on 10 million streams), nothing is off the table for him. The world is certainly taking notice, with 1001tracklists placing him at the ‘25th producer in the world.’ He can also hold his own behind the decks, which you can witness yourself as he charts across the country on his latest string of tour dates, including stops at Academy (LA), Beyond Wonderland SoCal, and EDC Mexico this very weekend.
