Having just dropped his remix of NOISIA's "Mantra" last week, we knew MAT ZO had something very special at the Anjunabeats tour stop in San Jose. The classics set that he dropped was not only something that a lot of fans have been waiting for but it also showed that remains true to his roots, his original music despite all the hype that surrounds electronic music today. His performance and musicianship showcased that his unique tastes and production will outlive most of the short-lived records the world has been seeing lately.
One of the most memorable tracks that he dropped was his 2012 Club Mix of "Fall Into Dreams" which is available as a free download here. I realized I was reminiscing his Damage Control days and feeling a bit nostalgic about how amazing trance was back then.
Towards the end of his set I understood why Anjunabeats decided to select him as a special guest - because he is simply too talented to overlook on the roster. From the beginning to the end of his set, he took the entire crowd on a musical journey with some of the most surreal melodies which is mind blowing to recall. Be sure get fully immersed and catch Mat Zo as he continues his tour this year!
