If you’ve never listened to Matroda before, it’s time for that to change. The aspiring producer has been catching some serious attention throughout the last year for his mind-blowing brand of bass house, which takes a very minimal sound and blows it up to epic proportions.


Matroda’s hard work and dedication to music production has earned him releases with numerous big-name labels, including Spinnin’ Records, Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak and – most recently – Monstercat.

Having – sadly – discovered Matroda only weeks ago through his remix of deadmau5′ electro house classic “Ghosts ‘n’ Stuff” (and concurrently binging his entire discography), I was absolutely ecstatic when I found out he would soon be debuting on my favorite cat-themed EDM label.

While his flips have undoubtedly been my favorite content Matroda has put out, his originals are generally great too. His Monstercat debut – “Shut It Down” – is no exception to the rule. The track’s deep, grimy bass lines and growling, pitched-down vocals are enough to mentally transport listeners to the club, but its falling synth lines make it more-than-adaptable for festivals as well.

With Monstercat generally not placing much emphasis on bass house music, the label could definitely use a few strong artists in that genre. Needless to say, we hope Matroda sticks around for a while.
