BETTER LINES HAVE NEVER BEEN SAID!
Mat Zo a.k.a Matan Zohar is the new face of EDM’s ever progressing and genre encompassing revolution. As a kid, he was both, a drummer as well as a bassist for a jazz and a rock band respectively. Every track of his is unique in the sense that, when viewed through the lens of the sub-genre lover, it falls into practically every sub-genre out there! As they say, beauty does indeed lie in the eye of the beholder! His initial career kickstarted with some amazing trance tracks like The Lost, The Found, Rebound, The Sky,etc in his debut album. Over time, his music has evolved to such an extent that it has become impossible to sub-categorize it!
The icing on the cake has to be his Grammy nomination this year!
