Earlier this week, Mat Zo released a classic ass shaking, hip swiveling, foot shuffling monster of a track called “Get Down 2 Get Up” for free! It’s funky and soulful, and hearkens back to the communal spirit of Soul Train where everybody danced, and everybody cheered for everybody dancing. Normally, a track like this would generate some scrutiny, especially when the artist who produced it was recently on tour with Kill the Noise, the DJ famous for his apocalyptic terrorstep series “Kill the Noise” where a band of heroes struggle to save the planet from the living dead. But there is no controversy here; Mat Zo has made a name for himself as being a DJ who can transcend genre and survive in this business. His beautiful Drum n Bass mixes speak to his roots in the Rave scene. But his ability to obliterate a crowd with heavy doses of Electro is a testament to his skill at reading crowds and answering in kind.
With International bangers like “Easy“, a collaboration he did with the elusive Porter Robinson, and releases with Ilan Bluestone on Anjunjabeats, it’s nice to know there are still DJs willing to walk the Dance Music field without fear. Exchange LA is happy to welcome Mat Zo to the famous trading floor this Saturday. Get your tickets now, and we’ll see you out there!Purchase Tickets Here!
