Viralbpm caught up with the Helsinki-based talent to talk about his past, present and future.
Having recently hit 30m streams on Spotify, Mattson’s new single is a pulsing, cinematic and deep house-infused track that follows the success of his hit-filled ‘ Eleven EP’, and the summer-banger ‘ Anything’ feat. RØRY.
The new single features the LA-based vocalist and composer Nevve, who has also featured on multiple streaming hits, such as Elephante’s ’Catching On’ and Illenium’s ‘ Fractures’. ‘ Love Lie’ also features a flowing verse from a promising Cali-rapper Shane Moyer, who continues to make waves on account of his slick delivery and lyricized bars.
Spending much of 2018 touring across clubs, arenas and festivals worldwide, Alex Mattson – who previously became the first ever Finnish artist to sign a deal with Ultra Music – is best known for his debut production ‘UFO’ which has gained platinum status in Finland.
A multi-talented and diverse producer, Mattson has also produced songs for other artists, including Reino Nordin’s ‘Touch’ (produced together with Leo Salminen) and ‘Free’ (produced together with Tido Nguyen).
Steeped in Alex’s rich electronica tones, ‘Love Lie’ is out now!
