London, England based producer and DJ Matan Zohar, or Mat Zo as he isknown to his fans, was born into a artistically gifted family. Hismother, an accomplished professional violinist, and his father, afamous oil painter and music lover, immersed Matan into a world ofmusic, from classical and folk, to opera and modern synth music. By age8, precocious Matan was already so much inspired by music that hetaught himself the guitar, and decided to start a band.
After moving from the USA back to London, England, hisbirthplace, at age 11, Matan soon became a drummer in a jazz band, andbassist in a rock band, but after listening to such dance music artistsas Daft Punk and the Chemical Brothers, their primal rhythms combinedwith cutting edge melodies, instrumentation, and progression moved himto a turning point in his career: electronic dance music production andDJing.
