Zeds Dead have a way of crafting heavy dubstep tunes that retain an undeniable charm. Their newest release is direct evidence of this, as DC and Hooks take on Marina and the Diamonds’ “Lies.” In classic Zeds Dead fashion, the remix opens up with piano bars wrapped in copious reverb. As the production picks up, Zeds Dead unleash their signature wailing bass. Rolling hi-hats throughout the track tease trap influence, but the track remains as dubstep-oriented as ever. In the same manner as their remixes of “Eyes on Fire” and “Wild Heart,” Zeds Dead adeptly balance an engaging female vocal with blistering bass. Pick up the track for free from Soundcloud.
Otto Knows forced his way into music libraries everywhere with his anthemic Refune release “Million Voices.” In the same vein, the young Swede returns to form with a remix of Burns’ “Lies.” A signature melody along with a soothing build wrapped up with an infectious vocal, make for a captivating remix that we are due to hear at future Otto Knows events. If you took interest in his remix of “KOTEMF,” this latest remix will exceed expectations. Before Beatport becomes swamped with music on Monday, grab the official release of “Lies” along with its remixes today.

“Million Voices” is one of the most played songs on my iPod and while I don’t think “Lies” will be taking that spot any time soon, it definitely has potential for a similarly successful appeal. The violin build, melodious synths, and addictive vocal all combine to create a majorly catchy tune. We have no doubt that attendees of All Mixed UP will hear “Lies” at least once. The track is set for release on September 17th.
