After suffering from a sneaky hack on his social media channels, Matroda managed to flip an unfortunate mishap on its side and took the opportunity to add an entirely new dimension to his identity. He accomplished this feat by deviating from his heavier bass-riddled house sound on the recent piano-driven single “Rescue Me,” which stormed out with warm circular chords and a roaring diva-style vocal hook. Now, the Croatian-born producer is doubling down on his newest issue on the Insomniac catalog.
“Forget It” is a rousing house number poised to light up broadcasts the world over, with its predominant crossover appeal lending itself to be embraced by house music heads caught on either side of the spectrum. Forlorn vocals glow in a fiery blaze, as the vindictive lyrics become consumed by the moody groove laid down by Matroda. It’s a sensational affair that, despite its underlying subject matter, is ironically going to linger long after the last beat rings out.
Between the dark, gripping textures and the arresting topline, Matroda’s latest creation proves to be equally effective on the dancefloor as it does within the comfort of your own living room. The brooding nature of the piece makes it a perfect fit for radio play, as evidenced by the support it’s locked in already from Oliver Heldens, David Guetta, Tiësto, Hardwell, Dash Berlin, Afrojack, CID and many more.
The Croatian-born sensation has quickly become a beloved jewel on the Insomniac Records roster, after bursting out with his label debut via the bass house beast “If You Wanna,” which preceded the aforementioned “Rescue Me” release. In anticipation of his newest number, he recently took to the livestream space to host a very special Matroda & Friends takeover on Insomniac TV, featuring performances from likeminded artists Bleu Clair, Golf Clap, San Pacho, and Black V Neck. Before the engagement got underway, viewers were taken by surprise with the premiere of the official music video for “Forget It,” a striking visual that flits between black-and-white imagery and neon-tinted shots of a romantic entanglement fading away until all that’s left are the bittersweet memories. With “Forget It,” Matroda makes an irrefutable case he’s just as adept at concocting classy and catchy crossover cuts as much as he can bang out rollicking bass house tracks that put him on the map in the first place.
