Mat Zo is an artist who has always been well-respected for his detail-oriented production work spanning across multiple genres. His most recent endeavor, the 3-track MAD EP, shows him exploring bass-heavy sonic territory while utilizing broken-beat rhythms, from hip-hop beat vibes to faster juke-like sounds. In conjunction with the release, the studio wizard also announced his MAD North American tour, which takes him across the U.S. and Canada through November 25th. Check out the EP and full list of dates below. The EP can be purchased here and tickets are on sale here.

Last summer the trifecta of Porter Robinson, The M Machine, and Mat Zo set out on a 2 month bud tour across North America, unleashing not only a wave of incredible music but also reflecting the energy fused from the 3 acts in unison. This 23 minute mini-doc depicts a great tale of life on the road, how everything comes together and how everything came to be.
ALSO – Big shout outs on this to our dear homies The M Machine on this tour who not only are still doing what we know them best for (5:36 – pedestrians hunting out good coffee) but also show everyone that they are their own roadies in every sense of the duty. PLUS – rockin the GDD shirt @ 9:16! When it all comes together, it made for a memorable summer tour that was like no other for these young and talented individuals.
Free Willy Wednesdays are back for 2013! Willy Joy and Gotta Dance Dirty are starting your year off right by giving you a brand new exclusive tune from Willy every Wednesday in January…for free!
This week brings one of the biggest dance tunes of the moment into Willy’s sights. Porter Robinson and Mat Zo‘s “Easy” gets a total makeover from the ground up. The sample sounds more wistful here, but when Willy’s remix drops, the tune turns into pure bliss. Giant waves of bass wash up against slippery synths and sharp percussion. As with Porter and Mat’s original, Willy’s remix has paid a lot of attention to detail. This sounds equally huge in a big club or in your ipod headphones. Enjoy!
Our pal Porter Robinson will be embarking on a massive 31-date tour next week in promotion of his new single, ‘Language,’ including a kick-off date at Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas next Sunday the 10th. Supporting him throughout June and July will be Mat Zo and The M Machine, providing for a concrete trio of talent for this extended summer tour. Check for the tour date closest you in the flyer above and find more information about the Language Tour over at Porter’s official website.
After yesterday’s rain, it’s a clear Wednesday over Los Angeles and we might actually have a Daft Punk rumor worth believing. Read up on the rumor, an EDM tribute at this year’s Grammys, and Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy in Miami after the jump.
We are proud to announce that Porter Robinson will be making his way back to Los Angeles to play at The Music Box on Saturday, December 3rd. As if the show would already be devastating to miss, the dance music prodigy will have a heady supporting lineup featuring Mat Zo, The M Machine, pennybirdrabbit, and last but certainly not least, our boy ///BONES. Here in LA, we are lucky enough to have a plethora of excellent shows, so please do yourself a favor and take advantage of the world-class talent that comes through our city. It’s almost sold out, so be sure to grab a ticket fast!
