Mat’s newest dance floor killer “The Sky” builds elegantly with a symphony of synths and leads into a sweeping breakdown fill of warm melodies and Schossow’s dinstinctive, searching tones. Lifting off with an epic thrust on the drop, “The Sky” is a classy crossover anthem that brings together elements of house, progressive, and trance into his own unique blend. Taking the track down a more alternative and edgy direction, Zo's bass-heavy Club Mix is full of schizophrenic magic; twisting through different sections effortlessly in an eight-minute voyage. Beginning on a big room progressive house groove, Mat moves into a melodic, synth-driven breakdown before flipping in to a gnarly bass-throttled section that has been causing serious damage in Mat's recent sets from Miami's Bayfront Amphitheatre to London's Brixton Academy. Totally unexpected, the final drop comes loaded with surging synths. Mat’s extensive North American schedule this summer is a true indicator of the young prodigy’s burgeoning demand and stardom. A large majority of the dates will include The Language Tour, joining another of electronic music’s preeminent young talents, Porter Robinson, and The M Machine, whose recent debut artist album Metropolis has met widespread praise. To celebrate this upcoming tour, Mat has just released a new mix, the North American Fun Bus Mix. Mat has also recently begun a YouTube series; ZoTV gives an inside look into the life of this burgeoning super star. Check out Episode 1 from Brixton Academy.
