Today, Mat Zo has released his third studio album Illusion of Depth through Anjunabeats. The Grammy nominated producer brings forward 11 brilliant productions, creating an incredible album experience.
Featuring a number of pre-released singles such as ‘Colours’ and ‘Problems’, both collaborations with Olan – the album builds upon those singles, connecting the dots between the tracks and add greater depth to the already impressive collection from Mat Zo.
The album incorporates trance, acid, grunge, French house, techno as well as uplifting elements. It really is a journey of different styles throughout the 11 records. Mat Zo’s talented production skills really shine through in his third LP.
Fans of Mat Zo, Anjunabeats and dance music in general must listen through the album and experience it in its entirety.
“I started working on Illusion of Depth because I wanted to make a body of work that was cohesive. I’m usually known for being all over the place, but I wanted to make an album that had unifying qualities. In this case, partly it’s the tempo. Everything on the album is in the 124-128 bpm range, but within that constraint, I still managed to be all over the place stylistically. There’s also a lot more live/non-digital elements on this album than my previous work. I was getting really tired of how clean everything is in this corner of dance music. Above all else, I wanted to make an album with grit, texture, and attitude. I wanted to make a fuck you statement to the safe, sugary, fluffy world of a post-EDM trance” Zo says.
