EDM Producer/DJ Matt Barri, a Teenage Phenom, Joins Forces with Electro-pop Artist Emilie Brandt to Release New Single "All Out of Love"
LOS ANGELES, Feb. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Matt Barri, the 17-year-old EDM producer/DJ and musician from Palos Verdes, CA, makes his music debut with a collaboration with acclaimed electro-pop singer and songwriter Emilie Brandt. Their single, "All Out of Love," produced by Barri with vocals and lyrics from Brandt, is released today by the independent labels the Barri Creative LLC and HELLAVISIONS LLC. "All Out of Love" is available now to stream on Spotify, Apple Music, SoundCloud and Amazon.
"All Out of Love" showcases the artistic creativity of up-and-coming teenage producer Barri alongside rising, dynamic female recording artist Brandt who had instant chemistry collaborating on this song.
"Matt Barri is beyond his years sonically and represents the future of music," said Justin Garza, a music industry executive best known for his work with artists and producers such as The Black Eyed Peas, Will.i.Am, Afrojack, Ty Dolla $ign, DVLP and Omega among others. "'All Out of Love' contains all the ingredients that make for a perfect record recipe—big, brooding production with unique and unassuming melodic elements that can work for both rhythmic and pop audiences everywhere."
"I had a lot of fun with this track!" said Emilie Brandt. "I receive tracks for potential collaborations on a regular basis (I actually do listen to every single submission) and when I heard this track, which has ultimately become 'All Out of Love', it definitely stood out. I never ask who the producers are because for me it's all about who I can connect with musically. I knew immediately that Matt and I could create something special with this one. Everything came together effortlessly and I actually wrote and recorded my parts in one day. It's an awesome feeling to connect with another musician on that level when creating."
Brandt's lyrics were inspired by today's non-committal dating culture with social media and dating sites/apps redefining the traditional morals and attitudes of society. They tell a story of someone falling for you and wanting to be a part of your life, but you're just emotionally out of energy, "all out of love" and looking for a good time with no strings attached. Initial boundaries are set as fair warning, but the other person is not able to deal with such a level of emotional detachment. Though, this person makes you think about changing your ways.
"I was blown away by Emilie's powerful vocals on the song 'Lost' she co-wrote with Illenium, and actually had her voice in mind when I finished producing the track," said Matt Barri. "I was super stoked that Emilie was interested in working together and I think her fans will be just as excited as I was to hear this new track."
Brandt, well-known for her vocal performance on Illenium's song "Lost" on the recent Awake album, which hit as high as number three on Billboard's Top Dance/Electronic Albums in the U.S., has racked up more than 25 million plays through original EDM collaborations in 2017 and plans to release her debut album, "Freeform," this year. Emilie Brandt is represented by Siris Talent (mgmt).
Claiming inspirations of Florence Welch and Kesha, Brandt connects with audiences who are in search of something that is real and raw. Emilie Brandt has found an undeniable level of comfort writing and performing songs not specifically confined to any one boxed-in genre. For her, it's about confidently bending several influences and allowing personal experiences to shape her music.
Barri's recent engagements include a live performance with Brandt at the legendary Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA, as well as sold out shows at large venues across the U.S. and Mexico, where he supported Lil Jon. Matt Barri is represented by W Music Management.
Influenced by artists such as David Bowie, Dillon Francis and Porter Robinson, Barri produces a unique futuristic, sci-fi cyberpunk sound that combines bright synthesizers and melodies contrasting dark scenery and tones, mixed with the energetic pulse of today's electronic dance music. He also draws musical inspiration from movies such as "Blade Runner," "Robocop" and "Ghost in the Shell" as well as video games including Halo, Pokemon and Megaman, adding nuances from each to blend retro video game effects and melodic future bass samples with pop structured arrangements.
A multi-talented phenom, Barri first started writing and producing his own music at the age of 13, learning how to play violin at age 4 and guitar at age 7. Today, he's an accomplished musician that also plays keyboards, bass and drums. He was awarded "Producer of the Year" at the University of The Pacific Business and Production Camp in 2016 and recently was accepted to attend the prestigious Grammy Association Camp last summer to hone his skills and further develop a career path in the music industry.
A third-generation musician, Matt Barri is grandson of legendary songwriter and producer Steve Barri who was nominated for introduction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2017 following a four-decade career in the business that included numerous pop-rock hits throughout the 1960s, 70s and 80s.
