Single of the Week: Mat Zo – Equinox / Subaquatic DreamApril 20th, 2009
Equinox / Subaquatic Dream
There’s not many producers out there that can say they’ve been releasing tracks from their 16th. However, UK producer Mat Zo can. At the age of 13, he taught himself to produce dance music. By the time he was 18, he had 5 of his own track signed, along with numerous big remixes to the likes of Markus Schulz, Lustral, Andy Moor and Tiësto. Mat’s spongy way of learning and developing his skills have led to even more quality releases, of which the latest ‘Aurus/ The Price Of Oil’ pack was released only 2 months ago. Luckily, he’s keeping his brainwaves floating, leading to another release on the Soundpiercing imprint.
‘Equinox’ and ‘Subaquatic Dream’ are the two solid, progressive pearls that will be echoing down the clubs soon. ‘Equinox’ builds up with a thumping base, snaring down to a playful, organic break with a warm touch-up. ‘Subaquatic Dream’ sounds like its name: deep, atmospheric and a little spacey. An indulging break that only Mat knows how to produce forms the highlight of this one, as it shoves onto a melodic payoff in the end. Another fine package by this young talent.
