The last couple of years have seen Belgian DJ and producer MATTN achieve an impressive level of success. She’s released a clutch of banging releases on Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s Smash The House label, including the 2018 summer festival anthem ‘Throne’. She has also collaborated with artists like Magic Wand, Futuristic Polar Bears and Dutch mystery duo 2 Faced Funks, and began a creative partnership with rising star Hiddn, resulting in their tropical-esque vocal track ‘Late’, released in May of this year.
2018 has seen her profile continue to rise, with DJ gigs all over the world, from Creamfields to Tomorrowland, both solo and as a support act for Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike. In 2017 she put her own unique twist on the massive Vegas & Mike vs Diplo banger ‘Hey Baby’, and at the time of writing is about to drop her latest single ‘Don’t Say A Word’. The 26-year-old Antwerp-based artist will be spending the Autumn on tour, bringing her particular blend of electro-house to the clubbers of Asia.
