Mat Zo and Porter Robinson made waves with their incredible collaboration ‘Easy’. The euphoric and melodic anthem finally has an equally unique and uplifting music video to accompany the track. An anime themed video featuring a girl who escapes a busy city to a more peaceful and tranquil place provides the perfect backdrop for this incredible track.
Following the massive success of Porter Robinson & Mat Zo’s latest collaboration ‘Easy’ will be hosting an incredible ‘Lovin You Is Easy’ party at Mansion in Miami on March 15th. Mat Zo and Porter Robinson have individually proved themselves to be two of the young front runners of electronic music, each honing incredibly unique and infectious styles. Each artist brings a very different style of production and djing to the table so this show is sure to be nothing short of unique and incredible. If you are in Miami on the 15th this is most definitely the show to be at. You can get tickets here.
In the past few months, Evan Duffy has gained a lot of attention on YouTube for his piano covers of popular dance tracks. Although he does not produce electronic music himself, he has become embraced in the community for his keen ability to recreate originally synthesized music and has even garnished the attention of several popular producers who frequently use his covers in their sets. In my mind, Evan Duffy’s transcription of electronic music helps shine an important light on the musical elements of the genre in a more traditional sense. It not only reveals a deeper beauty in the music, but also reveals a different side of the music to both non-believers and lovers of EDM alike. Luckily, I had a chance to catch up with Evan (who happens to be an incredibly genuine guy) to ask him a few questions, and this is what he had to say:
Mat Zo and Porter Robinson are two of the most talented young producers out there and they recently toured together on Porter’s Language Tour. Now we have a preview of a collaboration between the two and it is truly exceptional. A euphoric vibe, with a driving dance groove and a catchy vocal break give this track the special touch that makes it really stand out. ‘Easy’ will be out on Anjunabeats next January in the new year!

At the moment, Porter Robinson is touring around the country on his Language tour along with Mat Zo and The M Machine. Last week he made a two day stop in Colorado at the Boulder Theater and The Ogden, where we caught the first show in Boulder which was sold out! After The M Machine played an awesome set, Mat Zo took the stage, and the young Anjunabeats star wasted no time getting the crowd roaring. He played an amazing,Â eclecticÂ and original set filled with his own great productions, new bangers and old classics – all seamlessly making the crowd beg for more.
After a short wait, the young 19 year old Porter Robinson took the decks. The crowd erupted as he opened his set with his classic banger, ‘Say My Name’. Despite his young age, Porter has achieved a massive amount of success, touring with Tiesto and Skrillex, releasing an his Spitfire EPÂ on Skrillex’s OWSLA label, and his latest track ‘Language’. He has developed a unique style of DJing where he transitions quickly through songs, pairing high energy heavy electro songs to creat an incredible energy. Throughout the night, Porter took the crowd on a crazy ride which truly proved why he has had such great success despite his young age.
