“There’s everything from two-step to glitch hop to disco house on my new album,” says DJ/producer Mat Zo, whose debut album ‘Damage Control’ is out this month on Anjunabeats.
“The tempo range is from 70bpm to 150 bpm so it’s pretty varied.” Slap-bang in the middle of his Damage Control world tour, the British DJ/ producer’s sets are as eclectic as his productions. It’s this wide-ranging, fresh, raw potency that was distilled into last year’s quirky electro ‘Biopolar EP’ and, more recently, ‘Pyramid Scheme’, featuring Chuck D.
“Noisia have had the biggest impact on my development as a producer,” says 23-year-old Mat. “They set the bar for what is possible with electronic music.” And after a year of DJ gigs and white-hot album tasters it seems anything’s possible for this enfant terrible of electronic music.
“I’m most proud of my album though,” he says. “It’s me stepping out of my comfort zone.”
