Matt Irie’s New Single: “Only You” Background:
Matt Irie is currently working on a solo album Keep it 100, produced by Hawkface at Studio Engine 1 along with some collaborations with the likes of the very soulful and super talented Miranda The Hope, MC Hawkface, and Roger Rivas from The Aggrolites on the single “Only You”.
“Only You” happens to be the single we’re giving away this week, but unfortunately, this mix does not include Roger Rivas contribution. When we connected with Matt Irie on the song, here’s the background he shared with us regarding “Only You”:
“This song came to life due to the fact that you can meet someone and it just clicks from there, nothing but good vibes, times and lots of awesome conversation; all the while unfolding in a organic way. I had this real upbeat melody in my head I had been trying to finish for the past month and it finally clicked. So once we came up with the beat, it was a no-brainer to get the man himself, Roger Rivas from The Aggrolites, to lay down his signature sound to this feel good track.”
Matt continues on by sharing: “Time is a beautiful thing — it’s meant to be spent with someone who inspires, appreciates, shares a vision and believes in you despite the flaws. I’m basically saying ‘Hey, I like you.’ What more can I say? 20 seconds of courage wrapped up in 3 minutes to say ‘I Care.’ I hope you will all dig this song as much as I enjoyed making it.”
Grab this song on the homepage of The Pier before it expires on April 24th.
