How you gonna get down so dirty and get lifted so high all at once? That's a feeling that can only be explained by listening to Zeds Dead and Delta Heavy's collaborative single "Lift You Up." It's a devilish dose of drum'n'bass energy that also hits you with some serious melodies. Its soulful vocal sample makes for a true singalong.
It's the first official pairing from the U.K. bass behemoths and Canadian crushers, but it's a mingled sound we wouldn't mind hearing more of. "Lift You Up" is light, even downright pretty, even while its beat bangs to a massive climax. These four heads hit a sweet spot, for sure.
"Lift You Up" sees simultaneous release on Deadbeats and Ram Records Friday, Jan. 18, but you can listen to it a day ahead of schedule exclusively on Billboard Dance.
The atmospheric quality of EMBRZ’s electronic pop is powerful. “Like It Or Not” is luminous and hazy and twinkling with halcyon synths. When entwined with the lofty vocals of joan’s Alan Thomas the indelibly affecting track blossoms with a special, magic quality, a spellbinding allure. It is electronic ear candy which is sure to satisfy your aural sweet tooth. The track is also perfectly suited for someone to give it a new lease of life through a remix. California/Corsica based producer JNTHN STEIN has taken this EMBRZ track under his wing, enveloping in his trademark style of soft-focus electronica, creating a lush soundscape which is easy on the ear, and soothing. “Was so cool to have JNTHN STEIN remix “Like It Or Not“, he’s such a sick producer! Loved that he switched up the feel of the original and gave it some attitude and punch smashed it!” Jack Casey – EMBRZ
This is NOT the first time JNTHN STEIN‘s chilled beats have grabbed our attention. We have had him in our sights since The Great Escape, festival last year. Have a read of our post-festival coverage review HERE and have yourselves a chillaxed weekend.
