This week saw several premieres and an ending to a long journey.

Madcon x Matoma

The official video for Matoma’s remix of Madcon’s huge single “Don’t Worry” was released this week. The original track spent five week as the most played song on German radio and went top 10 on Itunes in several countries and the remix has gotten quite a bit of airplay and streaming as well. The remix blends Madcon’s catchy chorus with Matoma’s chill base perfectly. We can’t wait to hear more material from these guys over the next few weeks.
