Mat Zo feat. Chuck D – Pyramid Scheme [Out 8/13]
‘Pyramid Scheme‘ is a track that Mat Zo has been working on for around 2 years. We first heard it in his BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix in the beginning of the year. Originally, he planned on using a sample of Public Enemy‘s ‘Can I Get a Witness‘ but securing the rights to it turned out to be a prolonged process. Suddenly, the legendary Chuck D (from Public Enemy) stepped in and instead of just giving Mat Zo the rights, he decided to record his own vocals for the track! This is what Mat Zo had to say:
I’m a massive hip-hop fan, so this was a big moment for me. I’d always wanted to work with a great hip-hop artist, and Chuck D is definitely one of the greatest. A lot of other MCs got jaded and starting doing commercial crap about getting wasted on bottle service at some ritzy Vegas club, while Chuck D is one of the few who stuck to their principles.
