One of the most innovative artists over the labels 18 years, Zo joined the Anjuna family at the age of 17. A series of revolutionary releases followed, rewriting the rulebook on trance sound design and groove. While the BPM decreased, there was a tenacity and energy to the likes of ‘Synapse Dynamics’ and ‘The Lost’ that felt timeless. As dance music was given a festival flavor, Mat was at the forefront with the likes of ‘Superman’ and ‘Rebound’ (alongside Arty).
His return to Anjunabeats is yet another bold statement; 3 genre-straddling tracks that bring together musical influences from around the world. A summer favorite from Above & Beyond’s DJ sets, ‘Meaning Lost All Words’ has the French house sensibility that has always featured in Zo’s work. ‘Says Without Going’ has hints of classic tech-trance, while ‘See It When I Believe It’ is yet another modern tongue in cheek twist on the trance formula.
Mat Zo's ‘No Words’ EP is available to download and stream on Anjunabeats now.
