A seasoned cast of collaborators stand behind “Left Right.” Hardwell, Deorro, and MAKJ convene on the festival-primed production, which sources its hype-inducing voiceover from the iconic vocal chords of none other than Fatboy Slim. The trio’s purpose is apparent from just one play: galvanize party rockers to put their hands in the air. Then, get them to follow the “left,” “right” directives of the thunderous cut.
“Left Right’s” anthemic framework, verbal commands, and resounding, bass-boosted drops channel classic festival sound. It’s by Hardwell, Deorro, and MAKJ’s deliberate high-octane design that “Left Right” materializes as a pounding stomper that lends itself almost too easily to live set inclusion.
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.

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.
Left/Right is a new name on the radar for me, but this new remix is very impressive. Flipping “Colorblind” by Karma Fields and Tove Lo into a mellow and laid back bootleg, he really did this one justice. There is a throwback, almost 90’s feel to this one at points. Love the top line vox,
