In case you’ve ever wondered what Mat Zo was doing six years ago, here’s your answer: making minimal techno. Getting a peek into the past works of DJs who have successfully made a name for themselves is as interesting as it sounds — and it’s even more interesting when that work is really good. The track features a gradually building loop of frenetic sounds and feels a bit like some of Deadmau5′ older productions. “Butters Cotch” proves that Zo doesn’t get nearly enough credit in the industry today. Here’s to hoping 2013 will brighten the bulbs around his name.
