CloudKid Presents Paper Idol - The Playground (Crypto Remix)
After the much anticipated release of Paper Idol’s “The Playground,” the artist, producer and musician has a little more music to share with fans and friends alike, with his first song of 2023, a remixed version of the title track of the EP of the same name. On “The Playground (Crypto Remix), the artist goes for full banger potential, the song becoming a hard-hitting, high energy, motivational song as a result.
Paper Idol says briefly, “Funnily enough, this remix was actually based on an early production idea of the song. I passed ideas back and forth with Crypto and they ended up making something killer out of it which didn’t make it onto the main album, but will definitely be out now (and perhaps down the line in other spaces), so keep an eye out for what comes next.”

Paper Idol is the genre-bending pop project of LA-based artist and auteur Matan KG. The music weaves dance music and indie-pop into “something unique and utterly disarming” (Beats per Minute), with storytelling that blurs the line between reality and fantasy, optimism and delusion, the sentimental and the absurd. After graduating university with a Neuroscience degree, Matan left medical-school ambitions behind to pursue music in LA. In under three years, he has released a string of singles and 2 EPs, multiple collaborations with forward-thinking dance artists (Yung Bae, Wankelmut, NASAYA), and has been lauded by BBC Radio 1, Billboard, Consequence, Under the Radar, and Dancing Astronaut. Featuring former classmate Adam Rochelle (keys), Paper Idol has performed the Fonda Theater, The Teragram Ballroom, and an official showcase at South By Southwest. He has also shared stages with Sylvan Esso, Two Feet, Lewis Del Mar, and Washed Out across festivals in the US over the past year. With his debut album, The Playground, out now under CloudKid, Paper Idol hopes to continue rallying a generation bombarded by reality and desperate for an escape.
