L.A.-based crooner Mateo checks in with his new mixtape Suite 823, a project he confidently says is “the best body of work I’ve ever put out.”
“It still continues the sound that I’ve been creating, but it just took it to the next level,” he recently told SingersRoom when asked about the mixtape. Signing with Kerry “Krucial” Brothers‘ Krucial Noise imprint back in 2010 — which he says is “a dream come true” because its given him the chance to work with Brothers’ longtime musical partner Alicia Keys — has given his sound a greater standard, and Suite 823 is a reflection of that.
“It still kinda has the young, foolish and in love sentiment that has always been in my songs, but it also has more edge to it, add different sounds to it, and we really tried to come up with something really really special,” he says.
