TONIGHT Anjunabeats will be celebrating a decade of ground-breaking releases with a ’10 Years Of Anjunabeats’ Xmas party at The Gallery @ Ministry Of Sound in London – uniting some of the best talent from both Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep. A limited supply of £10 discount tickets are available here: http://bit.ly/Anjuna10Years. Below is an exclusive interview with Mat Zo to catch up before the event tonight:
How did you relationship with Anjunabeats first develop? What was your first contact with the label?
They first asked me to remix for them back in 2007. Afterwards they asked me to send them my originals, so I did. They’ve been my main label ever since.
What has been your favourite Anjunabeats release of all time? (and why?)
It would be hard to choose one because every release is so different, but my favourites over the years have been ‘Bart Claessen – Elf’, ‘Super 8 & Tab – Delusion’ and ‘Maor Levi – Shapes’ to name a few.
Describe the last 12 months in 10 words…
Climbing higher without oxygen tanks breathing drinking and eating music to live
Which track has stayed in your DJ sets the longest this year?
Bart Claessen – Elf
What is your best memory of playing The Gallery?
The first time I played in the main room I opened it with Mark from Union DJs, before anyone had heard of me. No one was there yet but it was my first experience of ministry’s booth so I was super excited. Every time I’ve played after that I’ve had a big drinks rider, so I cant really remember them.
Finally, where do you see yourself in 10 years time?
Hopefully still making music and DJing, and hopefully improving.
