Mat Zo Launches Mad Zoo Label

Mat Zo is set to launch his own label Mad Zoo next week, and it has an innovative and potentially game-changing philosophy behind it. Kicking things off with his own The Up Down Left Right EP, every release on Mad Zoo will be free to download.

Mat Zo has been a proponent of free music for a while now, but while plenty of artists regularly release free downloads, the idea of a label which routinely releases music with no charge is a brave step. According to Mat the label is a way for him to “release music quickly, yet still have infrastructure around it,” although he intends to “continue to work with other labels in the conventional way.” Regardless of whether or not this is a watershed moment in the music industry, it’s certainly a noble effort from Mat, and it’s clear the guy genuinely cares about getting his music out to his fans.

The Up Down Left Right EP will feature Mat’s recent collaboration with The Knocks and a brand new electro track Left To Right. It’s out Aug. 11.
