Listen to Matthew Koma 'Parachute' Kat Krazy Remix [Exclusive Premiere]

Matthew Koma is by far one of the most promising new singer/songwriters to emerge on the pop scene this year. Hot on the heels of collaborating with Swedish dance champs Alesso and Sebastian Ingrosso, he also worked with Carly Rae Jepsen on tracks for her new album, including her new single "This Kiss." Koma is also featured on Zedd's current hit single "Spectrum" that is flying up the charts on both sides of the Atlantic. Koma's success as a songwriter and feature vocalist lays the perfect foundation to further build out momentum and spotlight his own artist material.

Case in point is his terrific debut EP, titled "Parachute," that was released earlier this year. The New York born singer wrote and produced/co-produced all of the four tracks on "Parachute," working with collaborators Alex Da Kid (Nicki Minaj, Rihanna), The Runaways’ Sam Watters and Louis Biancaniello (Kelly Clarkson, Leona Lewis) and The Smeezingtons’ Ari Levine (Bruno Mars, Bad Meets Evil).

Inspired by classic singer/songwriters like Bruce Springsteen and Elvis Costello, Koma has a very distinct point of view when it comes to songwriting. "I write about things that I know are sincere and that I can speak about from a real place," he told me earlier in an interview. "I feel that's really the only way for me to connect with people. [Music] needs to come from an honest place. Songwriting is an honest process for me so it is very reflective of what I'm going through in that moment, experiencing or seeing."

Lead single from the EP is the soaring title track that was remixed by British producer Kat Krazy who infuses the soaring original with a mighty dancefloor twist that is guaranteed to stir the party. Kat Krazy's biggest accomplishment is once again that he turns a pop tune into a blazing dancefloor stomper without stripping away its essential pop sensibilities.  Listen to the remix exclusively here on ArjanWrites.com.
