Blue-eyed Anjunabeats ward Mat Zo has barely parted from the affirmative imprint of Above & Beyond as far as his tectonic studio output is concerned. Already partially unlashed within the labels 9th annual compilation, the London based producer’s forthcoming Bipolar EP promises to extend the already stellar run of impassioned club stirrers for 2012. Where artistically distorted A-Side ‘Bipolar’ tactfully encapsulates the atypical Progressive House anthem with pitch-perfect resonance, ‘It’s Yours’ transitions from silky smooth chord play to a contentious ensemble of emotively charged chord play that accompanies its well-tuned backbone with exemplary Mat Zo mannerisms. Transitioning from A to B with distinct dexterity and a sense of biotic maturity, Zo veers from the crowd with a consistency that none have come to hold as firmly as this new age Progressive House master.
