New Remix EP For "Easy" By Mat Zo & Porter Robinson

Available Now on Astralwerk


Recently signed to the renowned Astralwerks label, multi-faceted producer and remixer Mat Zo is proud to announce the release of a brand new remix EP for “Easy” in collaboration with Porter Robinson. This release directly coincides with exclusive May live tour dates across the U.S. Additionally, check out the exclusive premiere of “Easy (Mat Zo’s Preprise)” here. It's a track taken from the forthcoming full-length due for release later this year that predated Porter’s involvement and is unavailable anywhere else. [Premiere] "Easy (Mat Zo's Preprise)" - Listen Now At a mere 23 years of age, Mat Zo is the hotly tipped British electronic music star championed by everyone from Pete Tong, A-Trak, and Swedish House Mafia to Skrillex, Lifelike, Above & Beyond and more. His diverse Beatport hits on the legendary Anjunabeats label include “Bipolar”, “Superman” and “Frequency Flier.” High profile global tours, collaborations with fellow talent Arty (“Mozart”),  and a reputation as one of dance music’s most acerbic wits has seen his star climb ever higher in the past 12 months. 2013 will see him release his debut artist album on Astralwerks - which will cover everything from glitchy hip-hop and electronica to UK garage and big room club bangers. [youtube id="at3FPJaAwoY" width="620" height="360"] “Easy,” a big room melodic house anthem that weds feel-good soulfulness with massive contemporary dynamics, has already reached #1 on Beatport and Hype Machine, was premiered to great acclaim on Radio 1 by Pete Tong.  Zo was also recently named MTV Clubland’s “Artist To Watch.”  The eclectic 6-track EP features a range of new remixes of “Easy” by such luminaries as Belgium-based Modek, indie darlings Lamaitre and drum n’ bass legend Andy C. The track began life as a demo for Zo’s album, until Robinson brought him on the road to tour for his successful single "Language" which sold more than 250,000 copies and hit #1 on Beatport and iTunes Dance charts.  While on the road, the solo effort turned into collaboration between two of the world’s hottest young electronic music talents, and together, Robinson and Zo have created one of the most incendiary crossover dance records of the year. Mat Zo also recently helmed Radio 1's renowned Essential Mix. which you can listen to down below. “a well-produced, feel good, and universally catchy track.”- Dancing Astronaut “…beautifully brings together the styles of both producers. ‘Easy’ supplies a sound that is both melodic and energetic, bringing shiny piano progressions that combine with powerful synth behind a pounding beat to create an uplifting track that is sure to put hands in the sky at the biggest of EDM events.” – Elektro Daily
