Last yr I went to Red Rocks for the primary time to see Zeds Dead at Deadrocks V — two nights of Zeds Dead had my coronary heart filled with bass and happiness, together with listening to two large IDs that I wanted in my life. The first of these was the collaboration with Snails and Akylla, “Magnets.” The second was this Delta Heavy collaboration, “Lift You Up,” out at this time.
It’s not unparalleled, however it’s uncommon, to listen to Zeds Dead do drum & bass. But actually, after listening to them staff up with Delta Heavy, it’s laborious to think about a extra excellent marriage of sounds.
Normally, we’d anticipate a dubstep drop first, adopted by an uptempo drum & bass bridge or one thing to that impact. NOPE. This one begins out full tilt and hits you with that 174 proper from the very starting, and I’m all about it. Of course, there’s a dubstep bridge, nevertheless it’s nonetheless unbelievable.
“We’ve been big fans of ZD for a number of years,” stated Delta Heavy, “so when the guys hit us up about working on some music together we jumped at the opportunity. The record came together pretty quickly, the essence of it being this catchy little vocal sample and the uplifting synth riff. We’re really pleased with how it’s turned out and the reaction to it when we all play it live has been incredible, there’s a real buzz around it online. To us it really sums up where we are at musically right now. ‘Lift You Up’ is a real melting pot of styles that – like us – straddles the Atlantic, fusing the traditionally energetic UK DnB sound with a bit of the more dubsteppy halftime stuff that’s big in the US right now.”
Zeds Dead continued, “This is one of our favorite songs that we’ve put out in the last couple years. It’s been really fun to play it in our sets and sort of have it as a cool unreleased track but now it’s time to let the people have it. In electronic music we always would like when an artist would have some unreleased music that you had to go to their shows to hear but you wanted it. Even though it’s only got a few lyrics to us this is a song about the human spirit and it’s amazing ability to triumph over adversity.”
This one is already on repeat for us at this time! Check out “Lift You Up” from Zeds Dead and Delta Heavy beneath, out now on Deadbeats and RAM Records.
