ABOUT

Norway’s Tom Stræte Lagergren (aka Matoma) is a DJ and producer known for his dance-oriented, tropical house music. He initially started out playing classical piano in his youth and it wasn’t until his teenage years that he became increasingly interested in electronic dance music. After high school, Lagergren, who had already started remixing and releasing tracks online as Matoma, furthered his studies by earning his bachelor’s degree in Music Technology from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. By 2014, he had started to gain international recognition for his Matoma remixes, including cuts for Jessie J, Akon, Enrique Iglesias, and others. In 2015, he scored a hit in Europe with a remix of Notorious B.I.G.’s “Old Thing Back.” Matoma has just released Hakuna Matoma, a collection of his newest singles.
