Impossible to easily categorise, Mat Zo is on a roll right now. Just this year alone, the LA-living British producer has wowed the dance world with his 70-track Essential Mix for Radio 1, topped the Beatport chart with “Easy” (w/ Porter Robinson) and laid down edit-heavy, genre-blurring sets everywhere from EDC Las Vegas to Ibiza — while DJs as diverse as Skrillex, Madeon, Pete Tong, Above & Beyond, Steve Aoki and A-Trak all support his tracks.
Following the universally loved “Easy” with Porter Robinson, the prodigious talent continues to assert himself as one of the most unique and interesting talents in EDM right now with the high-energy club anthem “Pyramid Scheme” – featuring vocals from Public Enemy’s Chuck D.
Propelled by the distinctive vocals of Chuck D (who re-recorded his “rock the funky beat” hits specifically for the track), “Pyramid Scheme” blends elements of electro-house, hip-hop and big room progressive in Zo’s unique, dancefloor destroying style.
This full package includes a trap remix from fast-rising New York producer Branchez who has recently been getting major support from Diplo and Skrillex – the latter featuring him on his BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix. The remix plays on the track’s hip-hop roots with a heavy bassline underpinning plenty of quirky, head-twisting tweaks.
