If you’ve been following any EDM blog over the past week, you would have heard that house producer / DJ Mat Zo went on a Twitter rant confessing on how he uses ghost mixers for his monthly podcasts. If not, we’ve embedded the tweets below, where he sparks controversy with the accusation “Sorry to burst your bubbles, but all your favourite DJs’ radio shows are ghost mixed”. But as he later explains, being a full time touring artist gives little time to carefully curate new music into an one hour slot. Many people have thanked him for his honesty, others have been outright shocked. We, however, are applauding this decision.
What everyone failed to look out was the fact that the Mat Zo Show is still running! Would you rather it be non-existent because there wan’t enough time to make them? The other is that the ghost mixer, Matan Segal (or @MatanYE_West on Twitter) is a master when it comes to this field. Formerly the host/ founder of The Drop radio on DI.FM, Matan has been doing this sort of thing for over 3 years with knowledge of all genres and styles. And if you avidly follow him on Twitter like myself, you’ll know that the guy is literally addicted to music (in a good way). So instead of pointing fingers and whining because you feel like you’ve been cheated, welcome this change with open arms and brace yourself for ever more diverse selections.
