Beyond the Bass | Interviews w/ Mat Zo, Skrillex, Boys Noize

Let’s change things up this morning.

We have two very special behind the scenes interviews today with two of the most prolific names in electronic music: Mat Zo & Dog Blood (Skrillex and Boys Noize). All three of these artists rarely sit down behind the camera/mic to give us an inside take on what’s been going down in each of their respective careers.

First up, Mat Zo sat down with the ever-popular Triple J Radio Show out of Australia to talk about the production process of his new album, Damage Control, as well as some tidbits on Mat’s unprecedented rise to fame.

Finally, Skrillex and Boys Noize met up at Red Bull Studios last month for a collaborative session. Luckily for us bass heads out there, the duo allowed a camera team to come in and shoot the highlights – providing us with an inspiring outlook on one of the most influential duos in EDM.


No Tomorrow Volume 8 Mix | Zomboy

Remaining relatively quiet for the past couple of months in terms of releases, one of our favorite British dub-stepping acts, Zomboy, is back with a new mix brought to you by No Tomorrow Recordings.

Joshua Jenkins aka Zomboy has been reinventing the genre of bass music for the past year or so. Utilizing complex, uptempo rhythms, lyrical reggae influences, and quintessential bass modulation,  Josh’s production method remains relatively unmatched in his realm of EDM. We couldn’t be more excited to hear any forthcoming original tracks or remixes he has to give us, his biggest fans (no, really, we are).

To satiate the cravings of his rabid fan base, Zomboy has given us a 24 minute mini-mix to tide us over until he releases his new EP titled Reanimated, out September 9th of this year. Luckily, twenty odd minutes was all Mr. Jenkins needed to pick our asses up this Thursday afternoon. And be sure to check out Josh’s latest original mix, titled Raptor, which appears as the final track on this set.

Zomboy – Vancouver Beatdown
Knife Party – Power Glove

Boys Noize ‘Go Hard’ EP [Acid Disco House]

The latest and greatest from Alexander Ridha aka Boys Noize precipitates in the form of his brand new EP Go Hard.

Prepare to enter a world full of acid and disco-house that truly goes HARD.

In 2012, Rolling Stone rated Alex amongst the top 10 “DJ’s who rule the earth.” So he’s got that going for him. Which is nice. Lately, his collaboration with Skrillex known as Dog Blood has been some of the most highly anticipated music in the EDM scene. This time however, he’s going in alone.

If your ready to rage then look no further. The fresh release from German sensation Boys Noize is top quality. Pray to God your favorite Club DJ takes requests, cause these jams go best with the lights low and the lasers beaming. Perchance with a dance partner?
