North Country Man Composes Song Featuring 'Pitbull'

Tools

A  7 News employee just helped release a dance song that is being mentioned by Billboard magazine, MTV and Vibe.

It features the award-winning rapper Pitbull.  
 
Matt Corey is a master control operator. In his free time, he  is Matty C. Beats.
 
For about a decade, Corey has recorded and mixed music from his own studio.
 
Now, he has composed and mixed the music for a song out with an artist named Jamie Drastik. It's called "Chasing Shadows"  and features Pitbull and a singer named Havana Brown.
 
"Actually, when you listen to it, it's super-modern," Corey said.
 
"It sounds just like something that would be on the radio, you know, top-40, but it's got this really cool blend of organic instruments and guitars and real bass guitar that were all played, but it also has that just crushing four-on-the-floor dance music side to it that is also very modern," he said.
 
"So, it kind of meshes really well together. It's also kind of new, in a sense, for what pop radio is doing."
 
For years, he's chased his dream of making a name for himself in the music industry and he's moved a lot closer to that dream. 
 
Expect to hear "Chasing Shadows" on the radio soon.
