Tom to Matoma

[ENG] When asked about the origin of the name of “Matoma”, he replied that choosing the name just “Tom” sounds boring. At first, he has been choosing another name with a cartoon theme, but those names are felt terrible. Then, his brother came over to the 26-year-old while saying, “Tom your name is terrible. You need to change it.” Both siblings eventually had argued with each other.

During argument and discuss, one of Tom’s friends heard their conversation. He said, “Tom, Dan, can you take life easy? Like the characters in Lion King’s the movie, Timon and Pumba, Hakuna Matata.” Tom’s brother spontaneously spoke, “How about Hakuna Matoma? That’s really cool!” The little brother agreed with the decision made by his own brother. So, this is how Tom’s name changed into Matoma as his stage name. On two years ago, due to the valuable name, he gave a titled  for his debut album, “Hakuna Matoma.”

Choose to become a career as DJ and music producer until right now, Matoma always produces dance songs with tropical house music vibe. Such as “Old Thing Back”, “The Wave”, “Running Out”, “Paradise”, “False Alarm”, “Staying Up” and many more. Almost all of the singles that he created by himself or has collaborated with international musicians, feels easy listening to play in any condition. Either in happiness or sadness.

On mid-November 2017, the biggest fan of Matoma has been listening to his latest song, which this time featuring pop vocals from Noah Cyrus. The titled single “Slow” was one of the projects that he has completed before traveled back home in Asnes, Norway, couple times ago. That means, there are still a number of songs ready to play on the music platform. “I just finished some new song. So, I am really excited about that. Like near future you can expect new music from me,” he said with a smile.

[IND] Saat ditanya mengenai asal mula nama “Matoma”, ia menjawab kalau memilih nama “Tom” saja kesannya membosankan. Tadinya, dia sudah memilih nama lain dengan tema kartun, tetapi nama-nama tersebut dirasa buruk. Kemudian, kakaknya datang menghampiri pria berusia 26 tahun ini sambil berkata, “Tom namamu buruk sekali. Kamu perlu merubahnya.” Kedua adik-kakak tersebut akhirnya saling beragumen satu sama lain.

Selama berdebat dan berdiskusi, salah satu teman Tom mendengar pembicaraan mereka. Dia berkata, “Tom, Dan, kalian bisa santai tidak? Seperti karakter di film Lion King, Timon dan Pumba, Hakuna Matata.” Kakaknya Tom dengan spontan berbicara, “Bagaimana dengan Hakuna Matoma? Itu keren sekali!” Sang adik setuju dengan keputusan yang telah dibuat oleh kakaknya sendiri. Jadi, begitulah  nama Tom berganti menjadi Matoma sebagai nama panggungnya. Saking berharganya nama itu, ia memberi judul untuk debut albumnya “Hakuna Matoma” pada dua tahun silam.

Memilih untuk karier sebagai DJ dan produser musik hingga sekarang ini, Matoma selalu menghasilkan lagu-lagu dance bernuansa tropical house music. Sebut saja “Old Thing Back”, “The Wave”, “Running Out”, “Paradise”, “False Alarm”, “Staying Up”, dan masih banyak lagi. Hampir semua single yang ia ciptakan sendiri atau hasil kolaborasi dengan musisi-musisi internasional terasa enak dimainkan dalam kondisi apapun. Baik dalam keadaan senang atau sedih.

Pada pertengahan bulan November 2017, fans berat Matoma telah mendengarkan lagu terbarunya, yang kali ini menampilkan vokal pop dari Noah Cyrus. Single berjudul “Slow” itu merupakan salah satu proyek yang diselesaikannya sebelum ia pulang ke kampung halamannya beberapa waktu lalu di Asnes, Norwegia. Itu artinya, masih ada sejumlah lagu yang siap untuk diputar di platform musik. “Saya telah merampungkan beberapa lagu baru. Jadi, saya sangat senang dengan hal itu. Dalam waktu dekat, kamu bisa mengharapkan musik-musik baru dari saya,” katanya sambil tersenyum.
