Mat Zo takes things back to the early ’00s and the “Golden Age of Rave”–you know, before all the kandi bans and regulations–with new single Don’t Say The T Word.
We’re fairly certain Zo is referring to trance with his title Don’t Say The T Word, but it’s too hard to deny the hardy synths and steady, relentless rhythm synonymous with retro trance in this track. It’s dripping with nostalgia and even comes with a heavenly interlude at the midway mark in which nothing but nebulous atmospherics remain before the driving beat returns. This track will take you to your happy place and back again a few times before it has had its way with you.
To keep with the nostalgia, Mat Zo also recently released a bootleg of Smashing Pumpkins’ 1995 track Zero. You can download each track for free on his SoundCloud here.
