“I started working on Illusion of Depth because I wanted to make a body of work that was cohesive. I’m usually known for being all over the place, but I wanted to make an album that had unifying qualities. In this case, partly it’s the tempo. Everything on the album is in the 124-128 bpm range, but within that constraint, I still managed to be all over the place stylistically. There’s also a lot more live/non-digital elements on this album than my previous work. I was getting really tired of how clean everything is in this corner of dance music. Above all else, I wanted to make an album with grit, texture, and attitude. I wanted to make a fuck you statement to the safe, sugary, fluffy world of a post-EDM trance”– Mat Zo
Mat Zo earned a Grammy nomination for his debut album Damage Control, which was released in 2013. The album featured the break-out hit “Easy” accompanied by his close friend Porter Robinson. Since then, the artist has pushed Anjunabeats to the main stage performing with the likes of Above & Beyond at Madison Square Garden, as well as Pete Tong, Axwell, and Armin van Buuren.
