Cross-genre record producer and DJ Matoma, known for global hits like “All Night” with British pop band The Vamps, “I Don’t Dance” with Spanish singing icon Enrique Iglesias, and his RIAA Platinum-certified breakout hit, Matoma & The Notorious B.I.G’s “Old Thing Back(feat. Ja Rule),” has released his energetic new single. “The Power” represents a return to Matoma’s club-inspired roots.
“’The Power’ is the makings of a new era for me. Musically it’s more soulful, industrial, raw, and melancholic. It still feels energetic and fun, but with my return back to the festival and club circuit this year I wanted to push the sonics and sounds into a new world.” – Matoma
The highly anticipated track features uplifting vocals with a twist of electro house. “The Power” spreads positivity with fans by reminding them that life is full of self-discovery, and highlights the idea that they have the power to take charge. Fans will be able to enjoy the inspirational, feel-good song of the season. The single follows Matoma’s announcement of his new 12-stop USA “The Power” Fall tour, which kicked off with his historic performance at Red Rocks Amphitheatre with Zedd and included a monumental performance at New York City’s Brooklyn Mirage with The Chainsmokers.
Matoma is well-known for expressing positivity through his music and through his charitable donations. In April, he showcased three billboards on the i-10 highway to Coachella; originally intended for promoting his new music, but with the tragic war continuing in Ukraine, he decided to put them towards raising funds and awareness for Ukraine humanitarian aid organization Music Saves UA. A video of the billboards via a drone flyover can be found here. Matoma’s billboards received worldwide news coverage from outlets across the globe including NME, The FADER, The Independent, MSN, Yahoo News, and Metro UK.
“The Power” follows previous singles “Take Me to the Sunshine”featuring Super-Hi and Bullysongs, “Never Surrender” featuring Steve Garrigan of Kodaline, and “Summer Feeling” featuring Jonah Kagen,which scored record numbers of streams in their first week. “Never Surrender”has since taken off in Asia, with Matoma and Steve performing the moving track on The Tonight Show on NET TV (Indonesia’s top nightly talk show).
With each release, Matoma has demonstrated his raw talent across various genres, proving time after time that he is a driving force in the current electronic world.
