Mat Zo releases a fan favourite from his set at ABGT500, ‘Closure’, out now on Anjunabeats.
Mat Zo is one of Anjunabeats’ most celebrated artists, with tracks such as 'Easy' (with Porter Robinson), 'Rebound' (with ARTY), 'The Sky' and 'Superman' capturing the imagination of the masses. His GRAMMY-nominated debut album, ‘Damage Control’, released in 2013, gave Mat’s avant-garde approach to production its full expression. Featuring break-out hit ‘Easy’, the track took Mat mainstream: a Radio 1 A-List addition, Sirius XM BPM listing, a #1 Billboard Heatseeking record, an Essential Mix of the year nomination and, ultimately, a GRAMMY nomination for best dance and electronic recording.
His latest studio album, ‘Illusion of Depth’, was released on the label in October 2020. The album produced singles 'The Next Chapter', 'Problems' and 'Colours'; the latter of which has garnered over eight million streams, 150k YouTube views, hundreds of national radio play-outs and was placed in the soundtrack for the 2021 racing video game Forza Horizon 5. Mat rounded off 2022 with a surprise end-of-year single, ‘Astatine’, which has spawned an upcoming BBC Radio 1 guest mix with Annie Nightingale and support from the likes of Don Diablo & Armin van Buuren.
First teased during his set at Group Therapy 500 in Los Angeles, Mat has spun 'Closure' in recent performances at Beyond Wonderland, Anjunabeats Miami, Anjunabeats Austin, and more.
“The vocal for Closure is me doing my best falsetto. I’m not a good singer, but anyone can sound good after enough takes. It took a whole day just to get it right and even then it took a lot of editing to make it sound okay.” - Mat Zo
'Closure’ is out now on Anjunabeats.
