Bio:
Norway's Tom Stræte Lagergren (aka Matoma) is a DJ and producer known for his dance-oriented, tropical house music. Born in Asnes, Norway in 1991, Lagergren initially started out playing classical piano in his youth. It wasn't until his teenage years spent listening to his older brother's music collection -- including albums by Paul van Dyk, Tiesto, and Armin van Buuren -- 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." Also in 2015, Lagergren released his own debut single as Matoma, "Feeling Right (Everything Is Nice)," featuring rapper Wale and Jamaican dancehall singer Popcaan.In addition to being a producer, Matoma is also a DJ. In just 5 months he went from totally unknown, to 10.000.000 plays on his different remixes, including officials for artist like Enrique Iglesias, Imagine Dragons, Tegan & Sara, Truls and Marit Larsen. This year he finally received the recognition he deserves with international gigs booked at some of the hottest parties in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, France and Canada. In 2015 he will be one of the main acts for some of the largest festivals in Norway and Canada.
Matoma is a hard working talent with a flair for catchy melodies and high quality productions. His love for extraordinary voice talents and catchy lyrics has led him to the world of remixing, adding a brand new feel to existing hit songs. His first remix; The Notorious B.I.G ft. Ja Rule "Old thing back" took him to the top of the charts at Hypemachine, proving him to be a crowd pleasing act to look out for.
