Saturday, January 12: DJ Mat Zo @ Axis/Radius

If you aren't already envious of Matan Zohar, who performs as Mat Zo, you've got every right to be nothing but helly jelly.

At the tender age of 22, the London-born trance and house producer already has collaborated with Porter Robinson (on last year's epic progressive track "Easy") as well as tagged along with the superstar on his Language world tour last summer, in addition to be having been personally recruited by Tiësto and Tritonal to remix their stuff and listed as one of the top 100 mixing fiends in the world by DJ Magazine.

EDM kingmakers Above & Beyond also have heaped plenty of praise upon the wunderkind and even signed him to their vaunted Anjunabeats label. Plus, he pulls down more scrilla for a single gig than you make in an entire year. While he's mostly famous for his dreamy, electro-drenched trance leanings, Zohar is well known for his drum 'n' bass trickery as MRSA and has a proclivity for releases two-hour mixes filled with pulverizing low-end artistry. All of the aforementioned genres are likely to make up his headlining set at Axis/Radius. -- Benjamin Leatherman
