Hot off the heels of his Damage Control album release, Mat Zo blew up Create Nightclub last Saturday, Nov. 9 in Hollywood. The venue formerly known as the Vanguard, Create Nightclub underwent massive renovations this year, and is championed by LA’s biggest promoters Insomniac and SBE. My first impressions were great; I loved the sound quality, the intense laser shows, and the costumes that the dancers wore were highly exotic.
Mat Zo always blows me away with his productions, and last Saturday night, I finally got to hear his new ones live. I was listening to his album Damage Control all day to get pumped for the show, and I absolutely couldn’t wait for him to drop my favorite jam, Lucid Dreams. He then surprised me by dropping the unreleased ilan Bluestone remix (See Video Below). Hearing the climax of this massive tune on Create Nightclub’s powerful sound system really made my night.
There were many special moments throughout the night. The crowd absolutely loved it when he played an epic mashup of his track Pyramid Scheme and Walter White by Above & Beyond. A huge gathering of LA’s Anjuna-family came out to this show, and boy, did they go nuts for that combination.
Some crowd favorites were also thrown into the mix, like Madeon’s remix of Raise Your Weapon by deadmau5, my last year’s favorite The Sky featuring Linnea Schossow, and some rough bangers like Yeaahhhh by Firebeatz. Trust me when I say that you’re going to want to catch him on his current North America and Australian tour, so head over to Mat Zo’s tour dates page here.
