Mat Zo continues to dabble in anything but today’s most popular sounds in his growling, gritty take on Alex Metric‘s jubilant Heart Weighs A Ton.
Zo revisits big beat/breaks territory in his latest remix, which comes less than three months after Left To Right reminded us of his penchant for the classic sound. He swaps out Metric’s bright piano chords and crash cymbals for a darker, bass-driven big beat structure for a remix that should please fans of The Chemical Brothers, The Crystal Method, and contemporaries of the style’s ’90s heyday–except with a serious snarling habit replacing the more era-standard acid synth.
Predicting Zo’s next musical move is getting tougher with each new tune, however in addition to assuring that he can’t repeat styles back-to-back, fans can count on him to not produce one thing for sure: “EDM.” He reaffirmed his apparent strategies on Twitter just before uploading the remix:
I'll never do the same style twice in a row cus i have commitment issues— Jewish Cracker (@Mat_Zo) November 4, 2014
Im sorry EDM. It was never meant to get serious. It was meant to be a one night stand. I shouldn't have called you back— Jewish Cracker (@Mat_Zo) November 4, 2014
