NEWS: Mat Zo’s 70-track Essential Mix debut on BBC Radio 1


Mat Zo made his debut on BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix this past weekend, turning in a 70-track spectacular that took in everything from Burial to Boys Noize, Daft Punk to Depeche Mode, Justice to Noisia, plus a selection of tracks from Mat’s debut artist album which is set for release in early summer.

You can stream the Essential Mix from the BBC Radio 1 website until February 15 HERE

“A brilliant young British talent. He has well and truly flexed his creative muscles with this Essential Mix.” – Pete Tong, BBC Radio 1

Included in the mix is the first single from Mat’s debut artist album, his collab with Porter Robinson “Easy” which is out this spring on Ministry of Sound. The track has already received BBC Radio 1 support from Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Zane Lowe, Greg James, Danny Howard, Annie Nightingale and many more.

“All the music in the (essential) mix is stuff that has inspired me or stuff that is hardwired into my brain from listening to it so much! There are also new tracks that give me hope in the music industry,” said Mat. “I started laying down tracks and seeing where the mix would go and it was a really experimental process in a lot of ways. I chose tracks that wouldn’t necessarily would go together in a club set, but would work as something you would listen to on a day-to-day basis.”

Much like Madeon, Porter Robinson and Arty, Mat Zo is part of an exciting new breed of electronic music producers that are ripping up the rule book and creating innovative new sonic creations – without the genre preoccupations of old.
