Anjunabeats has a serious knack for finding young musical prodigy. The trio of Ilan Bluestone, Arty and Mat Zo form perhaps the youngest and most dynamic powerhouse in trance music.
After the resounding success of his debut album “Damage Control” last fall, Mat Zo is back with free music. A more seasoned, refined sound is evident in his new music, one of the hallmarks of a true artist. This time, he brings along the Knocks and their sublime electro sound for the ride, and some serious funk ensues.
Get Down 2 Get Up is so disco funky, it almost feels like a lost daft punk track. Crisply tuned vocal samples roll back and forth behind a bouncing kick and bass punch that hits all the right notes. It’s the vibrating, plucky synths that really bring the house down, making for that Mat Zo swagger no one else can match.
If you listen closely to the second drop, you can hear what sounds like the Donkey Kong grunt from Mario Kart 64.
