BIOGRAPHY

Evolving from a naturally gifted instrumentalist to full-fledged auteur, filous – the alter-ego of 23-year old Viennese producer Matthias Oldofredi — has always been something of an enigma, driven by an incessant curiosity and a need for discovery. First showcasing his unusually inquisitive mind at the tender age of 10 years old, he soon became proficient in dozens of instruments and started to immerse himself in far-flung influences ranging from progressive jazz to country, from bluegrass to black metal. The concept of “filous” emerged once Matthias began experimenting with electronic production, teaching himself via Youtube tutorials with all of his earliest remixes built from artists he discovered on the streaming platform. As resourceful as he is talented, the young upstart has since caught the ears of tastemakers and electronic music fans alike, which has grown his unique global footprint to over 850 million combined YouTube, SoundCloud, and Spotify streams, thanks to 15+ Hypemachine #1s and his debut EP Dawn topping the iTunes electronic chart in more than 9 countries. In 2020 he released his single “Hey Love” featuring The Kooks, which garnered international praise from both fans and tastemakers.
