Grammy-nominated producer Mat Zo shares the official video for ‘Sinful’, the second track to be taken from his forthcoming album ‘Self Assemble’ due for release on March 25th.
Following on from ‘Soul Food’, which was hailed as an “absolute banger” by Zane Lowe after premiering on his Beats 1 radio show and enjoyed success as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record on Radio 1, ‘Sinful’ continues in the same electro-funk, Daft Punk-flecked vein. The track manifests Zo’s hypercreative spirit with a soulful disco shimmer that goes hand in hand perfectly with director James Chappell’s sci-fi styled accompanying video. The video tells the story of a seductive robot who follows the lead of the pole-dancing women she observes in an underground joint, using her silvery good looks to entice an unwitting human. While Zo nods to an overarching theme of his bemusement with society’s fixation on technology and the pitfalls of the digital age, his aim is to create something that can be left to interpretation, open for all to enjoy and muse upon.
The remix package comes in the form of a heavy-hitting drum & bass banger from Skrillex-signed Teddy Killerz, a mellower and slightly cosmic take from nu-disco producer Louis La Roche and a funked-up reinterpretation from remix veteran Mason.
‘Self Assemble’ follows Zo’s debut album ‘Damage Control’ which was nominated for the 2015 Best Dance/Electronic Album Grammy, peaked at no.1 on the iTunes Dance Album Charts and reached #7 on the US Billboard Charts.
As a figurehead of the dance music scene, Mat Zo has taken to the stage everywhere from Madison Square Garden to major festivals like Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra Music Festival and TomorrowLand, and remixed artists such as Ellie Goulding, Empire of the Sun and Porter Robinson. Zo and Robinson also co-produced ‘Easy’ which hit no.1 on the Beatport Charts.
Mat Zo’s album ”Self Assemble” will be released on March 25th via Mad Zoo, and can be pre-ordered here. “Sinful” is available to download and stream now.
