Mat Zo went on Twitter today to declare that he will be releasing music for free from now on. He started off the giveaway by uploading this throwback house/funky tune named "Oldskool Trip", check it out:

Could this new free giveaway attitude by Mat Zo be the result of the low royalties that he received in the first quarter for his debut album "Damage Control"? You be the judge:
I have no problem making my royalty figures public. Damage control made about $2000 in the first quarter— Zo from Kill The Zo (@Mat_Zo_MRSA) April 14, 2014
Whoops it wasnt $2000, it was $2800, so thats 2 months and a week of groceries— Zo from Kill The Zo (@Mat_Zo_MRSA) April 14, 2014
Combine this news with the recent revelations by Nick Thayer on his music and travelling income, we have to concede that the real money being made within the EDM world is concentrated heavily at the top.
