Electronic | Matoma & A R I Z O N A Release Music Video for “Heart So Big”

Posted by on May 24, 2022

Norwegian DJ and producer Matoma has released the heartwarming music video for his and electronic dance-pop trio A R I ZO N A’s single “Heart So Big.” The track was written with A R I Z O N A’s longtime collaborator PJ Bianco as a love letter to his son with autism and the video is crowdsourced from over 2,000 fan submissions of raw footage of pure happiness. 

Matoma shares, “I couldn’t imagine a better music video for this special song than this! It truly brought me to tears to feel all the love in these incredible videos, like little glimpses into the hearts and memories of people all over the world. Like the song, it’s a reminder to treasure the good that we have in our lives, and that we are all connected by that common joy.”

A R I Z O N A shares, “This song, along with the hopes of raising autism awareness, carries a special notion in general that we should remember to cherish and protect the ones we love in our lives. Sometimes we can be all they have, or vice versa.”

The positivity in the song comes as no surprise to Matoma fans, as he is recognized globally for his charity work behind the music. He recently headlined Gravity Festival and used his performance to raise money for Red CrossUkraine Crisis Appeal. His livestream raised $10,000 USD in just 45 minutes, breaking past records for the festival; and he decided to match the donations personally. 
Following that heartfelt livestream, he purchased three billboards on the i-10 highway to Coachella; originally intended for promoting his new music, but with the tragic war continuing in Ukraine, he decided to put them towards raising funds and awareness for Ukraine humanitarian aid organization Music Saves UA, which received worldwide news coverage.

Now is as good of time as any to use the phrase: The whole is greater than the some of it’s parts. This is a truth that is intertwined with this compilation. All house but all sharing a different style to the table based on their perspective, Pharaoh’s Gold Vol. 1 makes up an eclectic combination for what it is, but also a stepping stone representing more to come.

“I’m A Boss,” by Thomas Xavier sends out a cool feeling with it’s unique sample choice and easy-going feel. “Say You Got Me,” has Thomas Xavier and black a.m. collaborating, the two together blending in a pleasant spirit into this sound. “Up All Night,” lets Chomper have his moment, executing a feel where your never quite sure what will be coming next. “H.E.R.,” lets newcomer St.Sinny do his thing, bringing a spooky feel, all of which is channeled through house music. The dankest seems to be saved for last with Pharaoh’s Gold Vol. 1, Elevatd and Thomas Xavier going hard on all the parts of the final song “P&B.”

There’s plenty to love and explore with this volume, don’t miss out on a movement that isn’t slowing down for anyone.
