Being a top dawg in an industry involves personal sacrifices and putting in the man hours to obtain, something iconic genre blending producers Zeds Dead can attest to having spent most of their time on the road delivering their captivating music to the masses year round while releasing new material steadily. Diplo’s eclectic eye spotted their talent early on and signed D.C. and Hooks to his prestigious Mad Decent label, which has released 3/6 EP’s from the duo including their brand new Somewhere Else EP out now!
Vancouver based producer Vanic, who gave that amazing remix of Birdy’s Skinny Love some time ago, has selected Circles, by Los Angeles indie pop band Machineheart, for his latest track. I’m not complaining. Circles is already such an immensely bright and infectious gem. Vanic infuses it with extra buoyant synths and popping beats. If you need some feel good music, take this one for a spin. Is there such a term as melodic trap yet? Or clean, shiny, glowing trap? Because this remix sure has a little of that going on.
My latest EP was written over the course of my time off from touring. It consists of four tracks, representing in chronological and stylistic order; consideration, recuperation, awakening and transcendence.
Patience is my frustration at having to stop, and a reflection on the past, Time For Myself is a reconnection with my energy and humour. Alarm Clock is a stride into new territory and a reminder of why I love what I do, and Without Gravity is being comfortable in my skin again.
