Good Morning Mix: Mat Zo mixes madness on ‘This is Mad Zoo’ [Stream]Mat Zo Vice Drum And Bass Single

Earlier this summer on July 1, Mat Zo debuted his imprint’s inaugural compilation album, This is Mad Zoo. Geared with 12-tracks ranging from drum ‘n’ bass to dubstep, breakbeats, and more, This is Mad Zoo is as proper of a showcase of Mad Zoo‘s roster as it is fittingly in tune with Zo’s visionary roots in pushing the boundaries of the scene.

Now, the Mad Zoo boss once again proves to be one of the most eclectic forces in dance music, re-channeling his attention to This is Mad Zoo in a 37-minute mix. Redefining tracks from the compilation with masterful transitions and fortifying the experimental extremities championed by This is Mad Zoo‘s spectrum of genres, the UK producer takes listeners through a genre-blurring journey that exudes energy, beauty, and darkness all at once.

Immerse yourself in the madness of Mat Zo’s This is Mad Zoo mix below.

It’s been nearly five years since Mat Zo launched his Mad Zoo imprint, and the Los Angeles-based label has finally graced the world with its inaugural compilation, This is Mad Zoo.

The collection of songs brings together artists spanning a wide range of genres, kicking off with a new slow-grinding tune from Craze called “We Outta Here.” The compilation continues with a cutting drum ‘n’ bass number from the head honcho himself and leads into other original material from Mad Zoo favorites like counsel pop, Kayoh, Rome in Silver, and more.

“This compilation shows the full spectrum of what we like at Mad Zoo, from bangin’ techno to laid back beatsy stuff and everything in between,” Mat Zo said of the compilation in a press release.

The label celebrated the release of This is Mad Zoo with a July 6 party at Catch One’s Underground Room in Los Angeles, hosted by MC Dino and featuring performances by Craze, Glacci, Vhsceral, and Roxanne.

Zeds Dead release third volume in Deadbeats compilation series, ‘WE ARE DEADBEATS’WE ARE DEADBEATS VOL 3

Deadbeats has solidified its name in the bass space after Canadian duo Zeds Dead revealed the imprint in 2016. Through a myriad of collaborations and support, Dylan Mamid and Zachary Rapp-Rovan released two label-exclusive compilation albums in 2017, featuring established and up-and-coming acts the dubstep veterans have their eyes on.

The third iteration, WE ARE DEADBEATS (Vol 3), is out now, featuring an array of well-known artists and newer talent. This is a must-listen for anyone into bass music, as the collection of songs comes directly from forefathers of the genre. To celebrate, each artist provided DA with an exclusive quote about their piece of work for the compilation.

Gentlemens Club: “When we made “Keep It Simple,” we set out to make something a bit different. It’s our take on the current free-form bass movement. We had a lot of fun experimenting with different styles on this track.”

um..: “It was fun making something darker than normal. It’s cool knowing that we can change things up and still get a positive reaction from our fans.”

Ducky: “‘Leave’ is a song I wrote when I was going through a transitional period out of a shitty relationship that turned out to be one of my favorite songs from this year. So stoked to be a part of this fire compilation! Really proud of this one, give it a listen <3.”

Blunts & Blondes: “It’s some blunt-smokin’ dubstep.”

Jaenga: “It feels great to release this tune after playing it out for the last few months. I finished it just as I was walking on stage for the Electric Zoo afterparty this year. I think its a good segue into my debut album that I’ll be dropping early 2019.”

Holly: “My new song ‘MISSU’ represents my emotions about my life right now. I tried to create this thrilled and homesick vibe with the hard drop and the ambient build up, and I’m super happy with all the sound design + how the track come out. Hope you feel the way too!”

Sippy: “The inspiration for ‘Lithos’ was to create a hard stomping tune that you can’t help to head bang to. It’s a simple idea, but the sub and the drums give that hard-stomping vibe.”

SoDown: “Zeds Dead has been killing the game when it comes to diverse bass music. When they said they wanted ‘Eskimo,’ I was really excited. I’ve been a fan of theirs for a long time and I’m stoked to be a part of the compilation.”

Klutch: “I’m typically a melody writer. That’s what most of my tracks center around. But I really wanted to collaborate with some friends who are left-field experimental trap, so I took some samples and tried to use that influence to create something that they would want to jump on. I ended up enjoying the process so much that I just decided to conclude the track myself. So this was my take on that new wave of experimental trap.”

Mersiv: “‘Mind Sounds’ is my deep, electric, loud version of mind control! My favorite part is the grand finale at the end. The track speeds up halfway through, has a little dnb tease, then slaps you with wub madness at the end. Bury That Sound.”

Cozway: “‘Radicals’ started out with Bonnema sending me the guitar-lead drop which reminded me of an Indian sitar and established a definite ethnic vibe for the rest of the track. We had this vision of the track being like running through multi-chambered fractal temple, so each part is different yet related. Overall we wanted to make something really different and we are super excited to release this on Deadbeats! Enjoy the ride!”

Rome In Silver: “‘Glass’ is about trying something new and shattering all expectations. It allowed me to step out my comfort zone, blend two styles I enjoy, and create a song out of my norm. I hope you guys enjoy it!”
