This week’s throwback track is a tribute to ‘Back To The Future’ day on 21st October 2015. This is Mat Zo in fine form with ‘Back In Time’. Enjoy!
One of the most exciting producers of his generation, Mat Zo has long established himself as a producer willing to take chances with his productions – creating the most forward-thinking fusions as a result. With his last EP ‘Near The End/Land Of The Free’ picking up radio support from Tiesto, Armin, Ferry Corsten and Judge Jules, the prodigious North Londoner continues to surpass his own high standards with this double A-side release – ‘Back In Time’ and ‘Millennia’.
Beginning on a shuffling, tribal-tinged tech groove and a swinging bassline, ‘Back In Time’ then filters in waves of rising, climatic melodies which twist into more emotive musical shapes during the breakdown before snapping cleverly into a electro-styled drop. Building back into a melodic monster of a track, ‘Back In Time’ is the perfect blend of hypnotic groove and classic trance melody — all delivered through Mat Zo’s unique and futuristic production sound.
Spacious, hypnotic and cinematic, ‘Millennia’ begins its journey in moody, epic prog mode before lifting into a stadium trance breakdown full of climbing neo-classical synths. Again balancing elements of musicality and groove with Zo’s trademark inventive flourishes, ‘Millennia’ completes another impressive double A-side EP
