Mat Zo & Porter Robinson-Easy

Fresh off Dance Music’s Biggest label, Ministry of Sound, “Easy” features the combined talents of two of the biggest young up and comers in the game, trance prodigy Mat Zo (-han) of the UK and the pride of North Carolina Porter Robinson.

Easy is yet another example of the extent of how much EDM’s genres have blurred…In the track one can easily pick up hints of progressive house, trance, and electro, not to mention a little dubstep and drum and bass.

Initially kicking off at a slightly slower pace than traditional progressive trance, more in line with Robinson’s pace, the edgy acoustics of Mat Zo’s sound can be heard clearly heard in the opening riff. Porter adds small hints of the dirty electro that brought him to super stardom. Immediately ensuing, a grouping of punchy and sassy vocals take control, leading to the echoing piano melody, indicating the chorus. After a short buildup resampling the vocals, a pounding bass brings in the drop (one can just imagine the young Canadian jumping up and down in his signature style, pummeling the floor with a swanky pair of dress shoes). Small resampling of the vocals in a Daft Punk-style electro buildup leads you all the way to the final drop, which brings out a fit of ecstasy as the pounding synthesizers and bass form together to lead you into a state of trance until they trail off to complete the journey the two young producers have just taken us on.




Wilder, aka 'Will King' is a true aficionado when it comes to writing about his biggest passion in life. Since getting thrust into the EDM scene in July 2011, Wilder has brought an array of different styles to the table, being careful never to completely rule out any one style or subgenre. Raised in New York City, he currently attends school in Colorado, where he has been adamantly exploring the local dance scene. Arty, Cosmic Gate, Dirty South, Sander Van Doorn and naturally Armin are Will King's favorite artists. Although they live almost 1000 miles away from eachother, WKing and Dan Tab each claim they have the best and most energetic dance moves on the OTB team...."Don't try and trade Kandi with me. What does PLUR even mean?"
