Norwegian electronic music star Matoma’s innovative ‘Hakuna Matoma’ album project – available via Big Beat Records/Parlophone – continues to go from strength-to-strength as it expands and evolves over time on streaming media platforms. With over 280 million streams to date and more than 7.5 million regular monthly listeners on Spotify, Matoma is proving that his unconventional approach is paying dividends.

‘Hakuna Matoma’ demonstrates Matoma’s ability to reach beyond the confines of house with elements of urban, dance, pop and Caribbean sounds within its palette. The track ‘Paradise’ features Sean Paul and KStewart and was launched during Matoma’s festival-highlight set at Coachella 2016, where Sean Paul was on hand to reprise his performance on the track. Other album highlights include guest appearances from Wale and dancehall artist Popcaan on the feel-good ‘Feeling Right (Everything Is Nice)’ and ‘Try Me’, a collaboration with global superstars Jason Derulo and Jennifer Lopez.
