Wasteland & BOI
Hailing from the west coast of Australia now based in Sydney, producer Matt Riley better known as WasteLand has established himself as a unique and versatile artist who blends pop with dance music. WasteLand’s new single with BOI, ‘Rich Friends’ demonstrates his ability to create shiny, highly memorable dance music with a melodic pop edge about staying humble and not always following the crowd.
Collaborating with Newcastle based singer BOI, former feature vocalist for LDRU and collaborator of Alice Ivy, Super Cruel, Alex Lahey, The Chainsmokers and more, ‘Rich Friends’ has a nostalgic feel with the horns and 00s pop sonic palette.
WasteLand caught the attention of the industry with his official music video for ‘Tail Lights’ which went viral on Facebook, achieving over half a million views in just a few short weeks and then followed up with the release of ‘Paper Towns’, a collaboration with Norwegian born breakout star Mileo. WasteLand truly is developing a cult following within the pop dance world, and this new song only adds to the notoriety.
