Tropical Tunes made by Swedish winter
The Swedish DJ wonder is famous worldwide: Tech-savvy kids that turn into classy, sophisticated magazine cover boys after climbing to stardom through steady digital buzz and international touring. But as we know, EDM is no longer only for the rave-kids, and so the artist side of the DJ (reserved to pop and rock stars back in the day) is becoming increasingly important. This is something Matt Fella not only understands but naturally integrates into his musical vision as a consequence of his outgoing personality.
Like a good son of the Swedish musical culture, Matt has been playing instruments since he was a small child. He’s been a drummer and singer ever since he can remember, taking part in a traditional musical training that is not always granted to the current EDM producer and DJ community.
At some point, he decided to take things to the next level and study music production in Stockholm, a city that has been the first-hand witness to the rise and success of stars like Alesso, Avicii, Otto Knows and Swedish House Mafia. After his studies, he started collaborating with musicians like TGR artist Kevin Faye and successfully pitching his remixes to the USA and the rest of Europe.
Matt’s musical taste and experience as a producer stretch well beyond EDM: ”Being able to play delightful strings with an orchestra and a choir in the background for a Tropical House song is totally fantastic for my ears”, he explains.
Beyond the “music nerd”, however, there is an easygoing, highly extroverted personality that breaks the stereotypes of the super-sophisticated, cool-tempered Swedish DJ. On stage, he prefers a healthy dose of excitement and extravagance. But when the show is over, he’s just like any of his fans, bringing some much needed sunny vibes to the Scandinavian winter.
