Any time I see Mat Zo‘s name on a live set or guest mix I HAVE to check it out. Besides being an amazing producer, Mat Zo’s mixes and live sets contain the best of both worlds as he blends Trance and House together in exclusive mash-ups that can’t be found anywhere else. After Zo opens the mix with his latest single “The Sky”, which is brilliant on its own, he jumps into his mash-up of Boys Noize’s “Yeah” and Jerome Isma’s “Speed” which has the driving bassline of “Speed” with the sing-a-long vocals of “Yeah”. From there on the rest of the hour contains more and more mash-ups that contain elements of songs you will probably recognize. I always enjoy hearing “The Reward is Happiness” and luckily it’s included here. Zo bookends the mix with another original track, this time “Bipolar“, which may possibly be my favorite original he has put out to date.
Arty usually handles the podcast duties himself, but he has moved aside a couple times in the past to allow for other artists to guest mix such as Swanky Tunes & Hard Rock Sofa and Infected Mushroom (that one came as a surprise to me). But hey, I’m not complaining that episode 14 is 100% Mat Zo so do yourself a favor and turn it up. And if you like what you hear, I recommend checking out his live set from Trance Around the World 400 which has the crowd going insane the entire time.
