By 1994, Mario “Smokin” Diaz* and Matt Warren had been around the Chicago House scene for over a decade and had enjoyed successful career. The pair jibed forces and became Masters In The Mix who recorded and released The Tribal EP. It featured eight new tracks which were written, mixed and produced by Mario “Smokin” Diaz* and Matt Warren. This included Jump, Give Yourself, Acid Tribe (Matt’s Edit), Music’s Hypnotizinm, Go!!, Hypnotizin Beatz and Acid Tribe (Aggressive Mix)
When The Tribal EP was released on Warzone Records in 1994, it wasn’t the success Masters In The Mix had hoped. This was a disappointment for Mario “Smokin” Diaz* and Matt Warren whose production career began a decade earlier in 1984. Since then, much had happened to Matt Warren as his career blossomed.
