Brighton born and raised, Louis Mattrs is very much a product of his environment, his surroundings and those physical attributes that make up his hometown influencing the narrative he threads through his music.
Louis first came to light in June 2013 with a mixtape surfacing on Youtube which caught the attention of Chase & Status. Together they collaborated on the top 10 single ‘Lost & Not Found’, selling more than 400,000 copies and propelling Louis into the living rooms of the masses and onto the stages of Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds.
Following this Louis dropped ‘War With Heaven’ - the first offering from his debut ‘Beachy Head’ EP. ‘War With Heaven’ was premiered as Zane Lowe’s ‘Next Hype’ on Radio 1 and was accompanied by a breath-taking video/short film which Louis collaborated on with multi-award winning photographer and video director Josh Cole (‘Best New Director’ 2013 Cannes Film Festival). Since then he’s collaborated with Paul Epworth, Catching Flies, Elli Ingram and Piff Gang, sparking a wave of interest across the pond after Meek Mill used Louis’s ‘War With Heaven’ on his album trailer video ‘Dreams Worth More Than Money’.
More recently Louis has collaborated with SG Lewis on ‘No Less’, dropped his critically acclaimed debit album ‘One The Rocks’ (Oct 2017) and featured on US heavyweight G-Eazy’s latest album ‘The Beautiful & Dammed’.
