Returning to Above & Beyond’s Anjunabeats, Mat Zo is back with “Closure.”
According to a press release, the new track is a “spiritual successor” to “Easy,” Zo’s collaboration with Porter Robinson, a generational dance anthem turning 10 this year. And it’s not hard to see why as the track embodies the uplifting, dancefloor-ready feel of its predecessor.
The renowned electronic music producer has masterfully incorporated his own vocals atop punchy drums and smooth pads, cultivating a soulful and upbeat feel.
“The vocal for ‘Closure’ is me doing my best falsetto,” says Zo. “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 has long been celebrated as a forward-thinking force in electronic music. He has long avoided bending to the whim of trends, instead electing to carve his own path, such as his scintillating albums Damage Control, Self Assemble and Illusion of Depth.
