Fresh off the the Kill The Zo Tour with electro power-house Kill the Noize, Mat Zo is making his return to Chicago. Only this time he will leave no bpm behind while he sets the dancefloor on fire with his boundary-blurring album Damage Control. Check out his performance from Ultra Music Festival 2014 here!

Matan was born into a musical family and at an early age his parents urged him to learn a musical instrument, so he chose guitar, and quickly showed a talent for it. It wasn’t until 2001 that Matan finally got a computer and was able to dive into the depths of electronic music production thanks to the internet.

By 2006, when he was only 16 years old, Matan had his first signing of a track, but it was after he won the Baroque Remix Competition with Lustral’s “In My Life” that many world-class DJs and producers began to notice this young producer’s great talents.

By mid-2007, Mat Zo had remixed the likes of Andy Moor and Markus Schulz. He became a DJ household name after Tiesto hired him to remix “Driving To Heaven”, and the remix appeared on Tiësto’s internationally recognized “In Search Of Sunrise 7” CD compilation.

Matan started to soar through the ranks when his weekly radio show Zoned was picked up by Afterhours.fm in 2008. More recently, he has released multiple mixes titled The Mat Zo Mix which features 17 mixes exemplifying is personal flavour.

Matan has gained tremendous support by the world’s top DJs, including Armin van Buuren, Tiesto, Above & Beyond, Markus Schulz, Ferry Corsten, Andy Moor, and Airwave. He has numerous releases out on such labels as Intuition Recordings, Armada Music, and Anjunabeats.Even complextro producer Porter Robinson shows Matan love with their track “Easy.” Grab your tickets right here!
