In The Ear of Matt FX: The Music Supervisor of Broad City
Admit it. You don't really think twice, or more like three times about the musical choices made while watching your favourite TV shows. Okay, maybe you do make the comment, and maybe you do Shazam the track, but do you actually take the time to find out who made the choices behind these songs playing throughout the episode?
Season 3 of Comedy Central's Broad City recently kicked off and we got the chance to touch base with the show's [youngest] music supervisor Matt FX. Arguably the youngest person in his position at only 24-years-old, Matt was also a music supervisor for MTV's Skins, and also for Amy Poehler's new Hulu series Difficult People.
Not only is he a musical genius, he has the power to help us all discover [now superstar] acts Phantogram and Blood Orange. He's obviously got the coolest job possible, and he's most impressive to say the least. This multi-faceted talented individual also dabbles in many interesting projects. Did we mention he's also a food connoisseur?
Amongst his many endeavours, Matt FX is also part of Scooter Island, an NYC-based 20 person collective that is behind the "Rooftop Music" movement, which is really a crossover between urban and tropical style music.
Instead of a boring ol' interview, we decided to ask Matt FX to describe a typical day of his activities through musical choices. He's collected a good bunch of tracks and describes the typical activity that goes with it. Scroll through his picks below:
