Italian siblings, Amedeo and Matteo Giovanelli, known as Mathame, have teamed up with Grammy-winning producer Tiësto to release their latest collaboration ‘Feel Your Ghost‘.
By merging Mathame’s futuristic sound with Tiesto’s signature style, ‘Feel Your Ghost’ marries ethereal vocals with a powerful beat and pulsating bassline, creating a magical atmosphere of 90s rave nostalgia. The collaboration between Mathame and Tiesto signifies a full circle moment for the Italian siblings as they have been long-time fans of Tiesto’s music since his initial days when his tracks were distributed on cassette tapes during early trance days.
Mathame expressed their excitement and gratitude about their collaboration with Tiesto by sharing:
“The collaboration is the result of a couple of years of exchanging ideas about music and the past, present and future of electronic “dance.” It was at WMC Miami that the spark was lit when we got to hear Tijs, who immediately fell in love with the idea of collaborating. In two days he completed the track and debuted it at Ultra, it was an incredible moment.”Mathame
Since Tiësto premiered ‘Feel Your Ghost’ live during his monumental Ultra Music Festival performance, Mathame has received massive support from fans at all their recent shows.
