Mat Zo knows how to produce music. The whole song Tracing Steps dances around with elements be layered on and later removed. He doesn't build up the sounds to an overwhelming drop like the loudness war often entices dance musicians to do, but instead releases all the pressure into a unique new sound each time. With this style of future house, you expect to hear patterns repeated, but introducing new sounds and this song certainly delivers.
One of the most notable features of the track are the swelling, wet vocals. They're leaded with reverb and dance around the plucks and sound effects as much as any other synthesizer does. Mat Zo succeeded in making a track that sounds uncharacteristically positive.
