Grammy nominee Mat Zo has finally set a release date for his highly anticipated sophomore album “Self Assemble,” which was set to release early this month – can I get an amen? To help curve our musical appetites, Zo unveiled single “Soul Food” as our anticipation grows.
Following Zo’s Grammy nominated debut album “Damage Control,”Â which peaked at no. 7 on the Billboard Dance charts and top spot on their Heatseeker Albums ChartÂ – Zo’s “Self Assemble”Â draws on everything electro-funk and 70s disco through trance to 90s pop and dubstep.
The first tract released from “Self Assemble” is “Soul Food” which premiered internationally on Beats1 on Wednesday 3rd February. “Soul Food” is noteworthy and epic with it’s well blended beat and sound, nodding to golden age greats of Daft Punk and The Chemical Brothers, who influence runs throughout the album.
With Zo’s continuous pursuit of a musical story with perhaps his most ambitious work to date, Zo stated:
“More than anything I’ve done before, I wanted this album to tell a story… what I want is for people to listen to the album as a whole – and then feel like they’ve arrived somewhere new once it’s all done.”
Mat Zo’s album “Self Assemble” will be released on 1st April via Zo’s own label Mad Zoo Recordings, and can be pre-ordered here.Â
