Anjunabeats welcomes back acclaimed electronic musician Mat Zo to the label, with ‘Love Songs’.
An artist that defies genre, Mat stays true to form on ‘Love Songs’. Wrapping together elements of electro, house, trance, and RnB into a vibrant vocal anthem, featuring a sample lifted from Eddie Holman’s ‘I’ve Been Singing Love Songs By Myself’.
‘Love Songs is a journey back to 2004, around the time I started making music. I had the vocal sample sitting on my hard drive for a couple of years, and I always kept going back to it just playing chords on top of it, trying to figure out what to do with it. One day I was listening to Another Chance by Roger Sanchez, which was an old favorite of mine, and I realized some of the ideas from Another Chance would work really well with that sample. I wouldn't say I ripped it off completely, but I definitely borrowed a lot from Another Chance,’ Zo says.
Mat Zo has earned a reputation over his whirlwind career as one of the most innovative minds in electronic music. Responsible for some timeless additions to the Anjunabeats discography - including his 2013 GRAMMY-nominated, #1 Billboard Heatseekers charting (for all genres) and #1 college radio electronic charting debut album ‘Damage Control’, and 2011’s collaboration with Arty ‘Rebound’ - Mat has never been one to be pinned down by the arbitrary confines of genre. From his beginnings on Anjunabeats, he’s gone on to conquer the worlds of drum & bass, ambient, electro, and beyond.
Bridging the gap between technology and music, Mat Zo will present a brand new festival experience in Minecraft next week on May 27th. Mat will perform an exclusive preview of his upcoming tracks alongside fellow artists Lutrell, Swardy, Groke, Rohaan, Inverted Silence & Counsel Pop.
