Norway’s Tom Stræte Lagergren (aka Matoma) is a DJ and producer known for his dance-oriented, tropical house music. As a child, Lagergren initially started playing classical piano and it wasn’t until his teenage years that he became interested in dance music. Once he left high school, Lagergren went on to the Norwegian University of Science and Technology where he earned his bachelor’s degree in Music Technology. However, as he was finishing his degree he started remixing and releasing tracks online as Matoma, quickly gaining popularity. By 2014, his remixes of  artists such as Jessie J, Akon, and Enrique Iglesias had started to gain international recognition for him, allowing him to create a stronger fanbase outside of Norway.  Then, in 2015, he scored a hit in Europe with a remix of Notorious B.I.G.’s “Old Thing Back” and released his own debut single , “Feeling Right (Everything Is Nice),” featuring rapper Wale and Jamaican dancehall singer Popcaan. As he continues to put out  music he produces strong original songs such as “Running Out” and “False Alarm” to name a few, as well as staying true to his remixing roots such as with Dua Lipa’s “Hotter Than Hell.” With so much going on, it is no surprise Matoma is in higher demand than ever.
