Mat Zo

Mat Zo Biography:


Mat Zo has quickly become one of the biggest rising stars in the industry after signing with Above & Beyond’s label Anjunabeats, releasing the massive ‘Mozart’ with fellow trance prodigy Arty, and the recent release of his Bipolar EP. Last Thursday Mat Zo made his debut appearance at Beta Nightclub in Denver and he absolutely rocked the place. We were lucky enough to catch up with him and get an interview!

First, I would like to thank your for taking time out of your day to answer questions for us. I am sure you are very busy.

No problem.

So, what sparked your initial interest in producing/djing? About how old were you?

I guess I was about 8, when I heard ‘One More Time’ by Daft Punk. At the time I didn’t know how those sounds were created but I definitely wanted to learn.

What do you think you would be doing if you weren’t djing or producing?

I get asked this a lot, and I always give the same answer. I’d be on the streets freezing my arse off.

Where does your inspiration come from?

Anything that inspires me.

What production software do you use mostly and why?

Ableton because I like it.

When you start a new production, do you have a set process you follow? (drums first, then melody, etc…)

Sometimes I do sometimes I don’t. I try and make it interesting for myself so I don’t get bored senseless.

How has your experience been being apart of the Anjunabeats family?

They have been nothing but supportive, and I feel lucky to be part of such an honourable label. I know a lot of labels out there who don’t treat their artists with such respect.

How do you balance your time in the studio with your touring schedule?

Honestly, I have no idea.

Do you prefer playing big festivals or smaller clubs?

It depends on the crowd. Sometimes you can get the best crowd in a small bar and the worst crowd in a massive festival or vice versa.

How does it feel to be so young and already have such a following?

It feels great but I don’t really think about it.

What advice would you give to aspiring producers?

If you’re trying to get into this industry for the fame and fortune, stop now, because you’re ruining it for the rest of us who actually give a shit about quality.

Mat, thank you very much for the interview we really appreciate it.
