Two producers, both well-decorated in their field of genres, strive to explore. They crave the feeling of leaving their comfort zones; thinking outside of the box appeals to them. What better way to do that than to collaborate with an artist who\’s music is in a different spectrum?
Scrolling through my music collection, I can find a variety of artists. When I feel like listening to progressive house, one of my first selections would be Mat Zo. His powerful work always puts me in a better mood; there\’s no doubt that he has made his mark with tracks like Rebound and Easy, seeing a ton of support from progressive legends like Above & Beyond. When I feel like aggressively headbanging, I play tracks from the likes of Kill The Noise. He was certainly one of the producers under the base of bringing dubstep to the U.S. and making it both popular and appealing. Collaborating with Skrillex and Dillon Francis has made Kill The Noise a recognizable name.
When these two artists first came together, we did not know what to expect. We saw some of Mat Zo\’s creativity with his first album Damage Control. Along with that, the many Twitter rants about dance music Kill The Noise has provided us made it sure that these two artists were looking to experiment with something fresh.
Their first collaborative track, simply named Part I, takes drum & bass to another level. The tune is filled with the growling bass synths we\’ve expected from Kill The Noise, along with insane drum breakdowns and some atmospheric Zo sounds.
Being named Part I, we can certainly expect more tracks to be released; this is the start of something big, and arguably one of the most anticipated collaborations in dance music.
