Though I had a jolly good time visiting Vietnam and Cambodia last month, one of my greatest regrets during my wanderlust indulgence was the fact that I had to miss Porter Robinson and Madeon’s sold out performances whilst on tour in San Francisco. I can only imagine how legendary the two production heavy weights were on tour together. At least I can find momentary solace in a fresh new remix of their collaborative hit, Shelter, by British producer Mat Zo. Shelter gets a complete makeover under his fine tutelage, turning into a dreamy ambient, sunkissed breezy progressive house track. Golden washed bongos lull us deep into the jungle before chunky synths and bursting beats rev up the energy level on this magical carpet ride through the cosmos. Mat Zo captures the beauty of the original to the tee but in a very different manner with his remix.

Mat Zo goes scrumptiously funk electro on Sinful, his second single from upcoming album Self Assemble, a full on delectable treat from the preview I was privvy to quite recently. Sinful, which features London’s I See MONSTAS, comes with a riveting sci-fi flavored music video to go along with its Daft Punk aesthetics. Despite my depression at how badly the Warriors are currently losing to the Lakers, of all teams, I find myself lifted by the classic house ebullience of sinfully good Sinful. The plucky smash is a free download when you pre-order Self Assemble on iTunes, out March 25th.

British producer Mat Zo is responsible for one of the best remixes that Porter Robinson says he’s ever gotten in his life. That must be the most epic compliment that can be doled out to a producer’s interpretation of another artist’s music, particularly when it comes from Porter. I suppose it’s obvious why Porter might feel this way once you dive into Mat Zo’s innovative re-imagining of playful Worlds track Flicker. It’s a sleeker Flicker with a much more meditative aura. Though it meanders and flows more slowly and deliberately, it’s a profoundly thrilling and resonating remix. Its energy lies at times, under the skin, peeking through every so often at the most opportune, affecting moments, ultimately crunching and grinding its way to a glorious finish.

One more killer electronic track before I wrap things up for the moment. Dope local San Francisco electronic act The M Machine targeted their remix skills on British house producer Mat Zo’s brilliant, highly regarded track Lucid Dreams. The fresh, glitchy rendition is darker, heavier, and filled with a somewhat sinister undertone. Revisit the brighter progressive house jam below.
