It's always special to find the acapella's to Biggies amazing voice, his groove and flow is like no other rap artists I've heard. Ever since I heard him for the first time I've been in love with his voice and lyrics. I hope I have managed to create a good vibe feeling on this track :) Biggie deserves only the best! This song is for all of you who support my music, you have no idea how much it means to me:)
I had so much fun in the studio with Jason and Jennifer making this track, it's all about summer and good times, I hope you feel the vibe!
I wanted to make a remix of two incredible songs that helped me through hard times at high school. The flow that biggie delievered always kept me up when I was buried in boring assignments. "I Tried" is a song with a lot of emotion and a lot of good tones, and together with Can I Get Witcha I hope you get a feeling of spring mixed with melodic disco and funk.
Seriously I could never dream a year ago that I would be remixing one of my favorite bands Coldplay. I wrote this remix in the back of a bus on tour and it came together so quickly because I was really feeling a connection to the original song whilst I was on my own adventure of a lifetime! Thank you for all your kind words and messages. I love being on this journey and sharing my music with you this way. I always say it but subscribe to the Hakuna Matoma album because I promise the surprises will keep coming! http://smarturl.it/sHakunaMatoma

About the making of the track:
Matoma and his producer friend Nelsaan is ”free falling", bringing the feel of Norwegian summer to this classic track. The producers duos first remix release together was created in the late hours after a gig and is best enjoyed as it was created; with a Captain Morgan under the rising sun.

Hakuna Matoma grows a little bit more today. When I met Astrid S she played me a guitar demo for this song and I was so inspired...her voice and her emotion is just so incredible. We decided to do this song together, and we're excited to finally share it with the world! I want my music to follow the mood of the seasons, and as the sun is running out and we get more into the cold I think this song is just perfect. I hope you like it! #hakunamatoma #followthejourney
From my debut album HAKUNA MATOMA! It's out now and always updating so please subscribe and follow me on this journey! More songs will be added every few weeks and I have A LOT of surprises left :)

The last few months have been amazing in terms of remix assignments and gigs. Dan Reynolds really has an amazing voice and I have done my best to create a good tune around the solid vocals. Hope you will enjoy the remix as much as I did making it! If you like the track leave a
Alot of you guys have asked me to make another hip-hop track with some Nu-Disco influence. It feels so good to work with some Biggie vocals once again after the incredible success with "Old Thing Back"! I wanted to do something slightly different this time. I added the 2pac's vocals from "Hold on Be strong" and the track became magic! Even tho the two legendary rappers had their beefs in the past, I hope they are both sippin` Hennesey and chilling out to this track in the afterlife! R.I.P This is for you!

The last few months have been amazing in terms of remix assignments and gigs. This remix is an official mission from Universal Germany for the artist Marlon Roudette new hit "When the beat drops out", it climbs the charts throughout Europe and when I heard the original for the first time I understand why. Marlon really has an amazing voice and I have done my best to create a good tune around the solid vocals. hope you will enjoy the remix as much as I did making it!

For me I'm just so inspired by incredible vocals, and I think Becky has one of the most special voices I've ever heard, it's such an honor to collaborate with her on this track. When I heard her first demo vocal I got goosebumps, it was so good we ended up keeping it! I'm so excited about this song coming out and being the soundtrack to my summer.
The inspiration for this remix is taken from Max'C emotional vocals in the song - I Found U by Axwell! Axwell is one of my biggiest inspiration in house music, so I wanted to do something special. Summer is approaching fast and therefore it was desirable to take up the tempo to 128 bpm. make it a little sexier with the help of the catchy vocals, and create a good atmosphere! Feel the Vibe!;)
I wanted to do something melodic and different for Will Smith's good vibe voice. His swing rhythm and flow in his songs are incredible good, and the passion he delivers in his music is very inspiring. He has for me been a legend ever since he appeared on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. I hope you like the remix I did of his song Wild Wild West. Cheers!
