Mat Zo returns with another release on Above & Beyond‘s Anjunabeats through his track ‘Love Songs.’ The track pulls a sample from Eddie Holman‘s ‘I’ve Been Singing Love Songs By Myself‘ and gives it new character. Mat spoke out on how it took form, and the inspiration behind it which he drew from.
“Love Songs is a journey back to 2004, around the time I started making music. I had the vocal sample sitting on my hard drive for a couple of years, and I always kept going back to it just playing chords on top of it, trying to figure out what to do with it. One day I was listening to Another Chance by Roger Sanchez, which was an old favorite of mine, and I realized some of the ideas from Another Chance would work really well with that sample. I wouldn’t say I ripped it off completely, but I definitely borrowed a lot from Another Chance.”Mat Zo – Press Release
‘Love Songs’ continues to reinforce Mat’s malleability when it comes to breaking genres. Throughout the track, you’ll hear sounds akin to house and trance amid the r&b smooth vocal. It’s melodic components create for a somber yet uplifting anthem that resonates. Looking forward, Mat has his third album finished, so we’re gleefully looking forward for what he has in store. This will trail off the highly regarded ‘Damage Control’ and ‘Self Assemble’ which are hallmarks of his discography.
