– Embarks on THIS IS A MAD ZOO HOUSE TOUR
– Following THIS IS A MAD ZOO HOUSE EP
Riveting on a different level. Mat Zo is creating a vibe that few can touch. This tour and the Mad Zoo house EP is going to mission and on full extreme motion to the top of the charts. Full Support from us at Raver Mag.
Continuing what’s been a healthy run of growth for his label, MAD ZOO, Mat Zo channels synergy for his next move and looks to bridge musical output to live realm with his upcoming body of work, THIS IS A MAD ZOO HOUSE EP, a love letter to club music with an emphasis on Filter House, and sampling.
“I feel like sample based music is dying”, Zo shares, pondering his somewhat bold move to keep the EP, who’s clearance fees would have been cost prohibitive, off traditional DSPs and instead releasing for free via BitTorrent. This music-before-commerce approach is one that’s popped up often in Mat’s extensive career, frequently opting to push his skills, and diverse tastes over a more traditional single trajectory based approach. “With this EP I wanted to let go and have fun, not thinking about sample clearances. I found all of these samples and loops the old fashioned way, by going to record stares and crate digging. I didn’t want to sample the same shit over and over, especially in House Music where there’s a kind of sample hall of fame people stick to. I wanted to find obscure samples that I couldn’t find on the internet and try and give them a new breath of life”.
In support of the EP, which premiered on Billboard, Mat will embark on a limited tour of North America, hitting major markets and bringing the burgeoning MAD ZOO party series to new audiences for the first time outside of his LA home since launching the series last year.
