Big room bouncy electro house anyone? Zedd from Kaiserslautern Germany, has been bubbling away for the last year or so but now feels a perfect time to pay him some props. Having already remixed the likes of Armand Van Helden, Fatboy Slim and Wolfgang Gartner this year, he appears on the latest Skrillex EP (almost an album actually) with his remix of ‘Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites’ which is also released on Deadmau5’s ‘Mau5trap’ label. Big names for such an emerging talent you say? The reason is that he unashamedly brings all the big hooks and vocal elements to the front of stage whilst the beats, bass and glitches all perform a highly synchronised dubstep/fidget breakdance in the background. Both elements perfectly complimenting the other and jackin floors when dropped. If that wasn’t enough, he does exactly the same again for Skrillex (again, why don’t these guys just collaborate) on ‘Weekends’ this time making sure the dubstep ‘waah’ is pumped right up before letting go after each drop. Skrillex is undoubtedly an excellent producer himself but for me Zedd is making records as good or better than the likes of DM5 and WG. Both these tracks are on Beatport or on Zedd’s soundcloud page here.
