On Wednesday, December 14th, Toronto’s Zeds Dead will join forces with iconic EDM superstar, GRiZ, to release their clamored-for collaboration and ID, “Ecstasy of Soul” via Deadbeats.
The track debuted last September during the first-ever Zeds Dead b2b GRiZ set at GoldRush Festival in Phoenix, and starts with a cover of the classic theme song for The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly before evolving into a monster dubstep festival anthem. It is the most fan-requested song both artists have in 2022.
“Ecstasy of Soul” marks the 5th official release from Zeds Dead this year. Previous singles have offered fans more in the direction of their new sub-label, Altered States, which navigates house, downtempo and dubstep adjacent genres (Read More at Billboard).
On “Ecstasy of Soul,” fans find the duo returning to electro-driven dubstep and epic, thematic bangers. Nearly 13 Years into their careers, Zeds Dead continue to prove they are among the most innovative and influential artists in electronic music.
Quote from Zeds Dead:
“We were doing a big back to back set in Arizona and wanted to create something super epic for the intro. We tossed around a few ideas and finally decided to try something with a version of the Good The Bad and the Ugly theme. Something about the Wild West and the new frontier seemed to be calling our name. Griz is the best and this was a lot of fun to work on, it brought us back to our old remixing days. We’ve been playing it at every show since and it’s gotten the most insane reactions. Stoked to finally put it out!”
