Zeds Dead have been holding out on this collab piece with Memorecks for a while now. Love Me first made noise on Zeds Dead BBC Radio 1 Essentials Mix about a year ago alongside Trouble. Since it was just collecting dust DC & Hooks finally let it out as a free download in a Bit Torrent bundle, around the time of the EP release, which includes the music video for Lost You ft. Twin Shadows & D’Angelo Lacy, stems for their hit track Hadouken, and their first EP Fresh Beets when they were first known as Mass Productions. Starting out with drums and a piano melody, Love Me turns into a smooth progression of Zeds Dead synths and moody vocals creating an atmosphere only Zeds Dead fans would be too familiar with. Check out Love Me below and download the track which is now available on their soundcloud.
DC & Hooks just released their new EP Somewhere Else on the first day of July. On this 8 track EP Zeds Dead brought back Omar Linx, who we all know to have worked with the Canadian duo on countless tracks, and Memorecks who worked on the single Jericho months prior. DC & Hooks also collabed with Big Gigantic, Bright Lights, Perry Farrell, Twin Shadow & D’Angelo Lacy and Sean Price to give this EP such amazing vibes that differentiate between each song from smooth and fluid to heavy and wild. Somewhere Else really shows this duo’s abilities to evolve their sound and adapt with the times and audiences to stay relevant while keeping that distinctive sound we all love so much.
Before the release of this EP Zeds Dead dropped plenty of preview tracks for Somewhere Else to keep fans ready for the new release. They came through not only with sounds to satisfying our ears but with visual stimulation as well. They unleashed a real tripped out video for the track Lost You ft Twin Shadow & D’Angelo Lacy. The psychedelic animations in the video reminiscent of a bad acid trip features melting faces and skulls, colorful animals and layering visuals with just about every color and pattern sequence you can think of. Check out the video below yourself.
Unloading previews and videos from the EP to fans might have seemed generous enough of them but check this out. Zeds Dead actually partnered up with bit torrent to give fans a package of free material from them. This package would include an unreleased track Love Me, full video of Lost You for you to own, the stems to their hit track Hadouken and their first EP Fresh Beets when they were just known as Mass Productions. Own all that and more when you download the bit torrent bundle here.
