Mat Zo And The Knocks Team Up To Form Supergroup The Mary Nixons + Drop Debut Single “Adrian”

Mry Nixons

Mat Zo and The Knocks are familiar faces on TSIS, both consistently dropping work that’s impressed fans everywhere for quite some time. Both have also had successful years so far, with The Knocks dropping their fresh Testify EP and Mat Zo dropping an innovative remix of Noisia’s “Mantra.” Even so, today the three unveiled what will undoubtedly be their biggest announcement of 2017 – a joint project titled The Mary Nixons. Along with this exciting new group comes their explosive first single, “Adrian.”

“Adrian” is an infectiously upbeat debut track for the group, gripping you from the first note with captivating, slightly twangy vocals and a simple xylophone lead-in. The producers add layer upon layer of production from there, creating a sound that constantly builds upon itself while still allowing the vocals to shine through. In addition to this, the track also features a lyric video that really drives the vibe of the song home. All in all, “Adrian” is an intoxicating summer single that captures the essence of the season perfectly. Check it out below and enjoy!

Mat Zo Delivers Must-Hear Remix Of Noisia's "Mantra"

Mat Zo Noisia

The remixes from Noisia's Outer Edges keep on coming and have arrived in full today. We've already shared with you Moody Good's heavy dubstep remix of "Get Deaded", as well as Bassnectar's. Well we'd like to share one more for you that stood out for us on the LP's 20-track remix package. 

Mat Zo's take on Noisia's "Mantra" is incredibly creative and incorporates distinct drum work that will keep you on the edge of your seat. He does a great job at gradually building the song's atmosphere in the second half of the production, slowly layering ambient pads, opera-like vocals and grimy bass elements that cut through the mix perfectly.

He experiments with multiple unique synths here and it definitely pays off. Listen to Mat Zo's reimagination of "Mantra" below. Enjoy!

Porter Madeon Mat Zo

As dream team Porter Robinson and Madeon continue to sell out shows for their live tour, fans have been hit with another surprise as Mat Zo shares his remix of the incredible "Shelter" collaboration.

Zo, who's previously worked with Porter on "Easy" in 2013 and reworked "Flicker" last year, strips the original down to its vocals and primary melody while adding playful percussion and a gritty guitar base. The chopped-up remix maintains the essence of the original, but brings forth a harder, rock-inspired edge to it. Stream Mat Zo's unique take on "Shelter" below and enjoy!
