1. Meet Matt FX Feldman, the 23-year-old wunderkind behind some of your favorite television shows’ soundtracks.
He was just 19 when he was hired as a music consultant for the teen soap Skins and now he works as the music supervisor for Comedy Central’s hit Broad City, where he ensures the tunes are as cool as Abbi and Ilana — no small feat!
2. However, Matt FX doesn’t just curate great music — he makes it.
3. When he’s not supervising, he’s in charge of the musical collective Scooter Island. The group weaves together elements of modern electronic production with classical songwriting and resonating vocal performances creating what Matt calls “rooftop music.”
The project features over 20 collaborators, including Obey City, Junglepussy, Salomon Faye, Ducky, Synead, and NYC-based rapper TARO.
4. A hyper-specific genre the group brings to life in the rooftop-centric video for their new single “Breezy (ft. Zoe Penina),” premiering exclusively on BuzzFeed Music.
