Update (11/19): This remix of Lucid Dreams from Above & Beyond‘s latest session of Group Therapy is just too good not to share.

★ Mat Zo – Lucid Dreams (ilan Bluestone Remix)

Matan Zohar‘s debut LP Damage Control just dropped, and man is this good. Like a bizarrely-attractive Salvador Dali, this mix-mash of future meets throwback is sincerely addictive. In Zo’s words:

It’s not really looking forward as much as it is looking back. I’m trying to capture the 90’s albums like Chemical Brothers. Give them an updated feel.

Having listened to the album — four years in the making — beginning to end several times now, I am quick to agree. Some great tracks will be familiar, like “Easy” (with pal Porter Robinson), “Caller ID”, and “Pyramid Scheme”, but the true gems are in the freshly-pressed: “Lucid Dream’s” strong start quickly breaks into its super-atmospheric tune, leaving all listeners bobbing heads and singing along.
