Forget about the fact that Mat Zo tried to spoil a major plot point in Star Wars VII for a moment, and remember that he’s a talented artist. Remember back to Damage Control, one of the strongest albums of 2013. There… feel better?
Now take a listen to this bootleg he made of “Zero” by Smashing Pumpkins.
Rock and EDM have always been somewhat parallel to each other, often twisting together for a brief moment, so this remix is totally kosher. The hard electro vibe, electric guitar riffs, and almost Knife Party-esque synths in the drop are a call back to a less restrained time, even just a couple years ago.
Mat Zo had no agenda with this remix and certainly just let his music do the talking for him. And for that, we’ll add this one to our playlist. Download for free here.
