counsel pop Releases New EP Plus Signs to Mat Zo’s MAD ZOO Imprint
After teasing his debut body of work in previous weeks with tracks “fazeley industrial estate” and “trino (counsel’s mental mix), today counsel pop shares his counsel pop presents EP in full, turning heads as it drops via the Mad Zoo imprint.
From first listen, it’s easy to hear why counsel pop piqued label head Mat Zo’s interest. The newest signing to his Mad Zoo imprint seems cut from the same cloth as Mat himself, boasting an eclectic, yet highly original style and aesthetic that oozes technical quality and immense reverence for the genre’s predecessors. “counsel pop brings together the best aspects of Big Beat, Electro, IDM and other electronic music genres to bring you a rare sound that’s inspired, ” Mat shares.
While the counsel pop presents EP might not be for the faint of heart, there is no denying the sonically innovative appeal behind the Canada-based UK export’s quartet of mind-blowing tracks that straddle the fine line between millennium big beat and modernized electronic music. Speaking on his unique pallet, the producer states: “The music is inspired by trying to recreate that feeling of driving around in your mate’s car listening to the only dance CD they ever had. Or, hanging around outside SPAR listening to old dance tunes, surrounded by the grey of the estate and shite weather.” With a full EP release under his belt and the backing of one of the most respected producers of the last decade, counsel pop is well on his way to becoming a household name.
