Born Matan Zohar in London, England, Mat Zo is an extraordinarily talented producer, composer,and disc jockey.

Zo’s parents had strong artistic and musical backgrounds.

Zo is the son of Israel Zohar, an artist who was invited to paint an official portrait of Princess Diana.
Zo’s mother is still musically active, playing and teaching the violin.

As a young boy, Zo was a drummer and bassist in a rock band while he actively pursued his musical interests.

Daft Punk heavily influenced Zo, and his interest quickly moved to electronic dance music and the art of being a DJ.

Soon after Zo started producing music in London, he gained the attention of several DJs, including big name artists such as Andy Moor and Markus Schulz.

In 2009, progressive trance group Above & Beyond praised Zo for being a “promising producer.” A year later, Zo was ranked at NO. 66 on DJ Mag’s Top 100.

Zo gained a massive amount of fame from his track “Easy,” on which he collaborated with electro house royalty Porter Robinson, as well as from his releases on Astralwerks music label.
“Easy” later earned the No. 1 spot on Beatport.

Zo released his first album, “Damage Control,” on Nov. 5, on the Astralwerks label.

“Damage Control” has been highly anticipated and is expected to propel Zo’s career even futher.
Mat Zo is currently signed to Anjunabeats, Hospital Records, Armada Music, Active Recordings and Astralwerks.

Must-listen tracks by Mat Zo include “Easy,” “Synapse Dynamics” and “Pyramid Scheme.”
