Tune in to Mat Zo’s BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix this Friday 8 February

This Friday 8 February, Mat Zo will be taking over the airwaves for his first Essential Mix for BBC Radio 1. Tune in between 1am and 3am GMT this Friday (early hours of Saturday morning) to hear Zo’s epic journey through sound - including world first plays on his new material as well as unheard tracks from Andrew Bayer and Norin & Rad.

"All the music in the (essential) mix is stuff that has inspired me or stuff that is hardwired into my brain from listening to it so much! There are also new tracks that give me hope in the music industry. I started laying down tracks and seeing where the mix would go and it was a really experimental process in a lot of ways. I chose tracks that wouldn’t necessarily would go together in a club set, but would work as something you would listen to on a day-to-day basis." - Mat Zo

Listen HERE on the night.
