See Matty play-through “The Other” by Tonight Alive in a cavernous church, taken from the band's 2018 record "UNDERWORLD":

Matty describes the tracking process for the song here: "One of my favourite memories from recording Underworld was tracking this 2nd verse. Although Sigma, Drum & Bass were major references overall for that powerful, flowing break beat sort of feel, all I could hear was Bomfunk MC's Freestyler!! Happy with how it turned out and ulitmately stoked Jen (Tonight Alive lead vocalist) got to unleash that blood curdling scream exploding into the climax of the bridge!" Matty Best is proud to endorse Tama Drums and Sabian Cymbals; for more info head to!
