As Mat Zo’s Mad Zoo Road Show closes in on its launch date, it’s now appropriate to announce the merry prankster who will be joining the tour. Mat is proud to announce that Haywyre will be coming along for the ride as primary support.
"Haywyre is someone whose productions have stood out to me for a while, and have been a key part of my sets for some time,” says Zo.“Mad Zoo is all about doing things differently and not being a one trick pony and always pushing the boundaries… and Haywyre is one of the few producers who feels on that wavelength, so it felt a natural fit to have him on the tour. Hopefully we can do something together for the label."
The young producer from Indiana has been rising strong since his debut album ‘Two Fold Pt. 1’ started turning heads, but it was really his remix (and incredible video) of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” that blew people away. As it is with all great producers however, this day was a long time coming. He has been studying piano since the age of six, and producing for most of his life. Drawing on a wide range of musical influences, from Flying Lotus to Hans Zimmer, his live performances are becoming renowned for their energy and ingenuity. His last single "Everchanging" is also a tune not to be missed.

About Mat Zo
While so many follow the status quo, Mat Zo has always danced to the beat of his own drum. From his days topping both the drum & bass and trance charts simultaneously (releasing on Hospital Records as MRSA), to his current status as a big room innovator, collaborating with Kill The Noise and Public Enemy’s Chuck D, to dropping genre-blurring 70-track contributions to BBC Radio 1’s Essential Mix, the precocious talent is destined to play by his own rules.
Supported by DJs as diverse as Skrillex, Madeon, Pete Tong, Above & Beyond, Steve Aoki and A-Trak, the British-born, now LA-based producer stands above the crowd. In a world of EDM soundalikes, this is electronic dance music with integrity and ambition. Released via Astralwerks and Anjunabeats, his debut artist album 'Damage Control' in November 2013 was critically acclaimed, hitting #1 in both the Billboard Heatseeker Chart and the iTunes Dance Album Chart. His bi-monthly radio show The Mat Zo Mix can be heard on Sirius XM’s Electric Area Channel every other Saturday with repeat episodes airing the following Tuesday.
