Impossible to categorize, Mat Zo is on a roll. This year alone, the LA-living British producer has wowed the dance world with his 70-track Essential Mix for Radio 1, topped the Beatport chart with “Easy” (w/ Porter Robinson) and laid down edit-heavy, genre-blurring sets everywhere from Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas to Ibiza – while DJs as diverse as Skrillex, Madeon, Pete Tong, Above & Beyond, Steve Aoki and A-Trak all hammer his tracks.
Following the universally loved single “Easy” with Porter Robinson, Zo continues to assert himself as one of the most prodigious talents in EDM today with the release of “Pyramid Scheme” feat. Chuck D.
The high-energy club anthem featuring vocals from Public Enemy’s legendary Chuck D is set for release August 13 via Astralwerks/Anjunabeats. Propelled by Chuck D’s distinctive vocals (who re-recorded his “rock the funky beat” hits specifically for the track), “Pyramid Scheme” blends elements of electro-house, hip-hop and big room progressive in Zo’s unique, dancefloor destroying style.
“I’m a massive hip hop fan, so this was a big moment for me. I’d always wanted to work with a great hip hop artist, and Chuck D is definitely one of the greatest,” says Zo of the collaboration
