With a mammoth 7 million streams over his catalogue, multiple triple j mixes under his belt, and a #1 on the ARIA Club Chart with ‘Caught Up’, Wongo is leaping into 2020 with his latest release ‘D.A.D. (Dance All Day)’. Dripping in sass, this party-starting track is a proper heater with The Aston Shuffle already naming it their ‘Tune of the Week’ on their triple j show Friday Night Shuffle.

“I’m so pumped to finally get this bad boy out,” said Wongo, aka Matt Ladgrove. “I have never road tested and got the reaction from a single record like I have D.A.D. It took a lot of versions to come to the final product so I’m happy it’s time to finally come out.”

No one-trick pony, Wongo has mastered the ability to seamlessly shift between his roles as producer, DJ, Box of Cats label head, full-time funny man, party-starter, and in his previous life five-time Australian breakdancing champion. Being able to draw inspiration from his plentiful walks of life, Wongo has been able to reap its benefits, with his creativity leaping boundaries that are yet to be matched.

With backing from Claude VonStroke, Justin Martin, Martin Solveig and FISHER, as well as love from BBC Radio 1’s Danny Howard, Anna Lunoe on Beats 1 and The Aston Shuffle on triple j, Wongo is destined to blast into 2020 on a high. ‘D.A.D’ is available to purchase and stream from today, get your first listen below!
