Mat Zo – Damage Control (Album Stream) | iTunes
TSIS: Your debut album ‘Damage Control” includes over 15 tracks while other producers strictly releasing single after single, what inspired this bold statement?
MZ: It wasn’t really a conscious move to be honest. It was more for myself to experiment with new sounds and produce music that differs from my previous releases. Writing this album has been long process over the past 4 years and most of the tracks on the album now aren’t the same ones I started with back then… they’ve all evolved into different pieces and bits.
“This album is my brains translation of everything that I’m into.”
TSIS: The album features not only Electro House, Trance, Drum & Bass, but Hip-Hop and Rock influences. Is this your life time of influences all conveyed into one cohesive project?
MZ: Yes. This album is my brains translation of everything that I’m into. After listening to a bunch of different genres over the last few years, ‘Damage Control’ features the output of what I’ve made from hearing those styles of music.
Following our debut of the captivating single ‘Rebirth’ from young Finnish producer Lenno last week, we get our hands on the first listen of the entire ‘Never Stop EP’ before it’s release on November 5th. The other three songs follow his seemingly perfect blend of 80′s disco vibes with a modern gritty electro house edge. The entire release will have you moving & bobbing your head with or without your consent. It’s that type of music that’s near impossible to not smile while you listen. Make sure to grab this EP when it comes out through Heavy Roc Music on November 5th through all major online outlets.

Hey guys, we’ve been going through some changes, and have a sick interview that we did a few months ago with Porter Robinson. This is a quick inside look at Porter Robinson, showing his thoughts on how people react to music, a breakdown of what he has in store with his live sets, outlook on touring, past thoughts on making “the most exciting drop ever”, and his 2 goals in making music. His Spitfire album has been incredibly successful, (listen to the whole thing below), and he’s been touring with countless big names like Skrillex, Tiesto, Zedd, and a ton more. This really is the year for Porter.
Porter states how his original goal was to make “the most exciting drop ever”. then moves onto his admiration for hyper detailed music from artists like Wolfgang Gartner and Noisia, but liked how “hard and danceable they kept they’re music”. He ends with his conclusion for his outlook on making music “Fuck everything else except for those two goals, I want to be complex, and I want it to be agressive.” He certainly does both of those so well, and been doing nothing but making HUGE waves since the interview. It was a great pleasure to sit down with Porter, and it’s really amazing to see how big he is getting, and how fast. Hope everyone enjoyed this quick inside look on Porter Robinson.
This video was filmed by our friends Cinesthetics, who do some of the best Photo and Video work I’ve we’ve ever seen. Follow them on Facebook Here. This interview was filmed at Global Dance Festival at Red Rocks, check out more information on the festival here.

I’m excited to announce that Thissongissick is going to be teaming up with rapper Shwayze to bring Shwaysted Fridays. Providing a fresh new monthly electronic event with an added dose of hip hop to mix things up. The next one is happening Friday, January 13th in Malibu at the Malibu Inn. The lineup has Shwayze & Cisco Adler, The Cataracs, my Dj project Sorry for Partying, and local DJ G-Nash. The capacity is only 450, and tickets have been flying already, so don’t miss out! Can’t wait for this party, hope to see you all there!
I’m also excited to bring you the premiere of the first track from the new project W.E.E.D., featuring rapper Shwayze, singer Mark Rosas, and a special guest I can’t tell you who it is yet (see if you can guess). The song was used in the video for the event above, but here’s the full track. The project has a very cool dubstep fueled hip hop party vibe that sounds pretty sick. It starts off a little on the chiller side, then it when it drops and both rappers spit their verses. The crunchy bass filled dubstep drops continue throughout the track, giving a sick unique feel. We’re proud to be sponsoring the EP the project has got coming out January 13th, for free, here. I love tracks that blend genres diving into the electronic world, and this one does it well. Enjoy!

Today I’m really excited to debut a new exclusive new clip from the movie Electric Daisy Carnival Experience. It’s a movie about the Electric Daisy Carnival electronic music festival, one of the largest music festivals in the world. It used to take place in LA, but since this last year has moved to Las Vegas. This is a clip highlighting the 12th Planet section. It starts with a brief interview section, and then goes to scenes of him raging in front of thousands of people. The video features Nero’s track Innocence, so I figured I’d throw in Feed Me’s remix to track. Can’t wait to check out the full movie!

I love posting new artists, it’s one of the main reasons I started the site, exposing people to new music. Well today I’m introducing you to J Flash, a really sick up and coming house producer based out of Denver. He’s released a few tracks and collaborated with Savoy on a few, and now is releasing his first major single, on Manufactured Music. Well the track is called ‘That’ll Work’ and let’s just say That’ll work as your first single release. It’s a sick upbeat house BANGER with a Swedish House Mafia type sound for the buildups and Chuckie dutch house type drops. He’s defintely got his own defined style. Very sick single artwork by Berk Visual. This song is released through Beatport, you can purchase it here, and J Flash gave it to TSIS for the exclusive download to spread the joy. Excited to hear some new tracks from J Flash, turn up the bass for this one, enjoy!

Bass filled Savoy have really shifted their sound since the Automatic Ep (ft. Get some Action). The Nothin for Nothin EP had a definte more house sound, which I loved. And then the How Low and We Speak No Americano remixes were made for blasting in clubs. Their first single released through Beatport called ‘Get Static’ is a high energy house track perfect for blasting at the club… or you’re dorm room. Savoy is playing Glowfest here in Boulder, CO, see details below, and because Thissongissick is a sponsor of the event we’ve been the first exclusive free download right for ‘Get Static’. Turn up the bass and enjoy!
