What people have said about Meta Zen:

That DnB set you threw down at the beach house was SLAMMIN! One of the more original sets I've heard and I'm out nearly every night. - Ashanti

"I've been doing high end sound systems for some of the worlds best electronic musicians and dj's for over 15 years and have become a connoisseur, snob, and picky bastard as a result. I recently had the pleasure to spend a few hours listening to this guy do his thing, and I can say with earned authority that if you are looking for some complicated funky serious epic psychedelic breakbeats, this is your guy. I mean, when I say next level shit DO NOT take it lightly. I do not often recommend dj's, and almost never use capital letters to emphasize my conviction. We are lucky to have him." - Christian Manchester of Mobius Pro Audio
