Unless you’ve been living under a rock this summer, you’ve probably heard Ellie Goulding’s new single, Burn, about a million times already. The highlight of her new deluxe album Halcyon Days (an updated version of her platinum selling album, Halcyon), Burn has already seen remixes from Tiesto, At Dawn We Rage, and a plethora of other artists. That being said, it’s the remix by Mat Zo that really stands out and grabs your attention.
Wasting no time since the release of Pyramid Scheme with Public Enemy’s Chuck D, Mat Zo is back with a banging progressive house remix of Burn. Zo takes the listener on a journey through big room builds, euphoric chords, and (of course) Ellie’s breathtaking vocals. At times angelic, other times growling and electrified, Zo has yet another impressive release to add to his resume. You can grab Burn and 7 other new tracks with the release of Halcyon Days on Aug. 18.
Also in Zo news, the producer announced today that he is readying a follow-up to his popular Zoned radio show from previous years with a bimonthly program on Sirius XM’s Electric Area called The Mat Zo Mix. Zo promises a consistently eclectic selection of music, and describes his idea of the show as “Just an hour of straight music without me rambling over it.”
The show airs every-other Saturday at 3 p.m. EST beginning Aug. 10, with a rebroadcast each following Tuesday at 11 p.m. EST.
