Cola Boyy: California Disco DJ on Activism, His Health, and New Music



Via Cola Boyy's bandcamp

It’s a chilly Saturday afternoon in Reykjavik. Though the sun only rose a few hours ago, it will be heading toward sunset by the time I arrive to interview disco artist and activist Matthew Urango, aka Cola Boyy, at Jorgenson Kitchen Bar & Grill. It’s a clean, well lighted place that seems the exact opposite of Urango’s music—dirty, sexy, drum-driven, disco tracks that make you want to dance.
