Life and career

Matan Zohar was born in London, England in 1990. He was raised by his mother who was a professional violinist, who allegedly possessed staunch musical ethos. From age one to eleven, Zohar and his family lived in the city of Cleveland, Ohio in the United States. It was there at age 8 where his father presented young Zohar with a guitar as a gift.[2] He returned at age 11 to London and continued pursuing his musical interests as a drummer and bassist as a member of a jazz and rock band respectively. However, Zohar became more interested in musical acts such as Daft Punk and the Chemical Brothers, and his musical inclinations shifted to those of electronic dance music and DJing. After 3 years living and producing music in London, his recording began to gain attention and play time by other disc jockeys such as DJ Tarkan, Perry O'neil, Swedish Egil, DJ R-Man, Jav D, Micah, Airwave, Andy Moor and Markus Schulz[3] In the 2009 publication of DJ Magazine's top 100 poll he was described by musical acts Above & Beyond, Lange and Daniel Kandi as a promising producer. In the 2010 publication, Mat Zo was a new entry at #66.[4][5][6]
