As we approach the highly anticipated for up and coming producer Mat Zo debut album Damage Control, we have an exclusive premiere of a new single “Time On Your Side” featuring vocals from singer Janai. We actually had a chance to get some back story for an upcoming interview with Mat Zo running next Monday. The song started out as a “Hip-Hoppy R&B Beat” and then after having Janai record vocals, Mat wasn’t happy with how the vocals were sitting with the track and went through the effort of completely remaking the song into what he refers to as a ”Kind of 90′s Poppy Song”. The vocals and melody are more then catchy, with an unexpected breakdown to set it off. This further shows how diverse the producing spectrum runs for Mat Zo.
Make sure to look out for our interview with Mat Zo running tomorrow, Friday as well as the full debut album Damage Control available Tuesday.
