Sounds Of The Onyx … may be the start of a new music sensation of ‘jazz rap,’ producing an intoxicating new sound of sublime vintage jazz recordings reworked into a more modern day urban vibe.” – Vibe

HBO‘s acclaimed drama series Boardwalk Empire® presents Sounds of The Onyx, a promo-only music project celebrating the show’s recently premiered fourth season and highlighting rare jazz recordings from the Prohibition Era. This DJ promo features the full set of remixes by Pete Rock, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Om’Mas Keith, Shafiq Husayn, JayCeeOh & B-Sides, and Tall Black Guy.

While the majority of the source tracks for this project are almost a century old, the spirit of musical fusion, lyrical signification and cultural revolution embodied in the original works truly form the roots of modern American music and DJ culture, from hip-hop to EDM. The featured remixers worked off of original recordings from legends Eva Taylor & Clarence Williams’ Blue Five, Ethel Waters, Lloyd Scott & His Orchestra, Jim Jackson and Charlie Johnson’s Paradise Ten Orchestra breathing new life into their songs for the gangsters, heroes, and club-denizens of today.

A joint collaboration between HBO, Giant Step, ABKCO Records and Sony Music Entertainment, the full project is now streaming exclusively via SoundCloud.

“Hard hitting electro” – Rolling Stone

“A brilliant young British talent”
Pete Tong, BBC Radio 1

Following the universally loved single “Easy” with Porter Robinson, LA-residing British producer Mat Zo continues to assert himself as one of the most prodigious talents in EDM today with the release of the high-energy club anthem “Pyramid Scheme” featuring Public Enemy’s legendary Chuck D (out now on iTunes and Beatport). Propelled by Chuck D’s distinctive vocals (who re-recorded his “Rock The Funky Beat” hits specifically for the track), “Pyramid Scheme” blends elements of electro-house, hip-hop and big room progressive in Zo’s unique, dancefloor destroying style.

“I’m a massive hip hop fan, so this was a big moment for me. I’d always wanted to work with a great hip hop artist, and Chuck D is definitely one of the greatest,” says Zo of the collaboration.
