Zeds Dead collaborate with Urbandawn on an ear-tickling drum ‘n’ bass offering, “Sound Of The Underground.” Through a misty atmosphere, a glitchy march toward euphoric melodies picks up then lets go into a breakbeat forest with swampy texture. The drop unleashes a fury of drum ‘n’ bass percussion, with soft shakers mixed with a variety of guttural synths and crunching sound design that are responsible for bringing the Deadbeats label heads to their pedestal. A second drop brings a half-time element that shines shades of dubstep.
The Brazilian producer’s percussive prowess must have drawn the festival headliners attention, judging from a similarly unique drum ‘n’ bass take on a version of the Beatles’ “Come Together.”
Zeds Dead also confirmed a new We Are Deadbeats label compilation for 2020 with their highly anticipated Ganja White Night collaboration. Another collaboration with Subtronics is in the chamber as the Canadian duo look to continue rolling on through the new year.
