British DJ/producer Mat Zo was destined for a career in the creative arts. Son of a successful painter and talented violinist, Zo began with his musical ambitions at the young age of 8. Years later at the age of 19, Zo was being supported by big time artists like Above and Beyond and Markus Shulz as they considered him to be a promising producer. The following year Zo premiered on the DJ Mag Top 100 list at 66, not to shabby for 20 years old eh? Now 22, Mat has a discography as long as a rap sheet and is supported by the industry’s elite.

Felix Cartal is a name that needs little introduction. The Canadian DJ/producer who started out as a bass player for a punk rock band as a kid has developed into something much more. Touring with the likes of Wolfgang Gartner, MSTRKRFT and The Bloody Beetroots, Cartal has taken the scene by storm. The 24 year old has also released 3 full length albums as well as a number of highly touted remixes. After his prior appearances at Camp Bisco, Electric Daisy Carnival and WMC it is more than obvious that Cartal can throw down. This youngblood has much to show this Labor day at E-Zoo.


What kind of career would one expect to have if Tiësto was their mentor? Hardwell’s. The 24 year old Dutchman has become one of the most popular artists worldwide since breaking onto the scene in 2009. Under the close watch of Tiësto, Hardwell has risen to astronomical heights. Playing alongside the likes of R3hab, Alesso, and Deniz Koyu, Hardwell has been throwing it down all over the world as he features a discography packed with unique originals and masterful remixes.

H.E.R. Brings All-Star Medley To Tiny Desk Set

Grammy-nominated singer H.E.R. appeared on NPR's "Tiny Desk" set on Dec. 12, to deliver a 4-piece-medley from her last four projects.

Tucked neatly behind her dark sunglasses, the songstress began her set strapped to a mustard yellow guitar with a host of back-up musicians accompanying the 21-year-old on her first solo journey with "Tiny Desk." She previously appeared on the performance series in June 2018 alongside collaborator Daniel Caesar to bring their single "Best Part" to life.

The singer began with "Going (Interlude)," a low-tempo song ushering a heavy-hearted feel into the 18-minute-performance. Keeping with the melancholy vibes planted by the first single, Gabriella Wilson – best known by her three-letter-moniker –  delivered a stunning rendition of "Feel A Way." With two-final transitions, the singer-songwriter concluded her act with "Focus," a throw back from the 2017 EP that gained her worldwide recognition, H.E.R. Volume 1.

Switching from strings to keys, Wilson sat peacefully before a keyboard playing the melody she crafted for the crowd favorite. Chaperoning the performance to a close, Wilson and her background singers played a vocal game of tag as the band jazzed up the slow beats until the set officially wrapped.

Watch as H.E.R. rocks the "Tiny Desk" set in the video above.

Usher Releases "Peace Sign" Video Off Of 'A' Project

Given Monday's (Dec. 10) debate about who's the king of R&B, one of the names that steadily popped up in the conversation has stepped onto the scene. In a visual promotion for his A soundscape, Usher released the video for "Peace Sign" alongside producer Zaytoven.

Previously, the pair hit the studio for an eight-track project that pays respect to their hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. It was surprise-released in October and effortlessly fuses ATL's aura on the soundscape. Now, the "Peace Sign" video puts that decision into cinematic motion.

"Atlanta offers a certain attitude and a sauce that I can't explain, and it is a little bit in 'No Limit,' it is a little bit in 'TNT.' I'm literally talking sh*t, man," he said in an interview with The Fader. "I'm popping sh*t that I haven't popped, like really ever. And that's what being in the moment creates. When you have months and months to think about it and you begin to analyze all the people who you need to think of and what you want this entire project to work out, you'll lose certain elements of your spontaneity an incredible culture that just happens in the moment. I didn't give that space. I really was honest with the feelings, I was honest with the conversation and I was really in the moment. And I thank Zay for that."
