Cola Boyy, aka Matthew Urango, is a 28 year old musician, coming from Oxnard, California, discovered on the occasion of a concert in Los Angeles during June 2016.

Cola Boyy is an unusual and self-taught musician & singer. His very typical but natural voice is the consequence of a disability from birth. His deviant disco songs talk about love and the happiness it breeds, while letting the rage of a rather different-looking militant crooner go. Penny Girl is the soon-to-be 2018 disco hit telling the story of a crime of passion. Poetic as a McCartney’s song, as effective on the dancefloor as a Patrice Rushen’s tune, and fun like the Frankie Smith's Double Dutch Bus. Have You Seen Her is the kraut-disco curiosity from the EP, halfway between the Ghetto Brothers’ rage and the funkiness of a Kurtis Blow’s instrumental. You will also find there a chorus made of extreme noisey guitar chords and a Michel Berger like piano solo, all swaying to the dancing beat. Buggy Tip is the track that could have been in the hands of an eclectic DJ like Nicky Siano at Studio 54. Disco strings, catchy choruses to sing along… Cola Boyy turns the melancholic memories of an ex-girlfriend into a banger to dance & shout in a hot late night club. The whole EP, recorded between Los Angeles and Paris, produced by French producer ‘nit’, is a witness of his raw talent and the foretaste of an album coming in 2019. The record cover is the fruit of a collaboration between French artists Mrzyk & Moriceau (Air, Sebastien Tellier…) and American record designer Robert Beatty (Ariel Pink, Tame Impala…)
