For Day 2 of our Hangout Music Festival Preview, we decided to mix things up from yesterday’s rock MP3 and bring you something from the other end of the music spectrum – a huge remix from Toronto dubstep producers Zeds Dead.
Formed by two friends, DJ’s DC and Hooks, in 2009, Zeds Dead has grown into an established force in the world of electronic dance music. By pulling samples from a wide variety of source material – the pair citesRadiohead, The Rolling Stones, The Moody Blues and Sublime as some of their biggest inspirations – Zeds Dead have developed an eclectic musical style of their own.
Transcending style and form, the duo have established their own genre that makes for an exciting live performance.
Their excellent remix of Blue Foundation‘s “Eyes On Fire” is a masterful exercise is tension and release, using the tracks passionate vocals to build up to massive electronic breaks.
For those of you that think that this sounds like a good time, Hangout Music Festival has a solid line up of top level electronic producers including Skrillex,Kaskade, Archnemesis (who we will have a track from tomorrow), STS9 and, of course, Zeds Dead.
