Introducing: Just Matthew

Just Matthew just lit some hot fire with his newest single, “Beverly Hills”. The track starts with angelic vocal loops in the production and what sounds like some sort of electric piano. As the track continues, Just Matthew fades in and you quickly realize that this summer track has all the fixings to be our new backyard BBQ anthem.

It comes as no surprise that this young artist hails from LA: homie comes in hot with that laid back flow and equally smooth production. Our favorite Dr. from Compton has coined some seriously specific sounds while making his productions, but the real west coast secrets often lie in the vocal cadence. I’m not talking about crazy stimulating lyrical talent. I’m speaking about those infectious ass hooks. I guarantee that I can pinpoint your exact movement when this hook hits. You’ve got your hands above your head, arms at a lazy 90 degree angled  and fists-almost-clenched. Those drums hit when he starts to sing, “you can be my Beverly hills”, and your fists are low key clenched but your fingers are high key trying to snap. The angle of your elbow is irrelevant at this point because your hands are going dumb. The outro kicks and you hear this heavenly twinkle key. The sound has actually been in the production for almost the entirety of the song but you may have not noticed because so much other sick shit was distracting you. Mad respect to Just Matthew for making a 4 minute and 22 second track, because nowadays tracks are either a 2 pump chump, or and 9 minute sermon from God K Dot.
