Having hit the top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100 charts twice with his 2012-released album Clarity, Zedd aggressively pursues the elusive pop perfection of a number-one single on his synesthesia-inspired second studio album, True Colors.
In less than 2 weeks, some massive names will be visiting one of the most iconic music venues in New York City. And no, I’m not talking about the Pope. On October 2, ZEDD will be bringing some friends along for the fun. Specifically, Madeon, AlunaGeorge, and Alex Metric will throwdown alongside the German artist.
In a Facebook post that went live at around 6:30PM EST, ZEDD passively called out UK boy-band One Direction for their similar lyrics featured in their newest track “Drag Me Down.” Earlier this summer, the German musician released his second studio album “Colours” featuring the track “True Colors.” In the video, ZEDD briefly plays a clip from his track and compares it side-by-side with “Drag Me Down.”
If you weren’t already excited for Zedd’s massive True Colors tour starting this fall, now you will be. Zedd just announced that Dillon Francis and Madeon will be supporting acts at almost of the shows. Both newly announced artists bring a unique sound and style when it comes to live shows. With over 30 stops across the country starting September 8th, there is no excuse for missing this show.
Our good friend Elephante is out with another banger of a remix. Elephante is a name that has taken the remix game and flipped it upside down. With every remix, the melodic leads that he uses completely takes over. His rendition of ZEDD and Selena Gomez’s newest track is no different. The sound is slightly different from his earlier tracks, but we still get that energy that fans know and love as the Elephante sound.
The old ZEDD is back, and it’s nowhere near the pop vibes he’s been pushing out recently. If you’re a fan of “Slam The Door,” the familiar gritty synths have made a return.
The track features vocals by Bahari, who still leads you through a progressive house melody. But once the drop kicks in, be ready for a surprising but refreshing twist.
Here’s some New Years Eve news for ya. This looks like the place to be at the end of 2014. Porter Robinson alone on NYE would be worth the ticket but the line-up already looks insane. Snowglobe is unique in the sense that it’s outdoor in the heart of winter. Never been to an outdoor venue in the winter time so this would be something new for most festival-goers. Tickets are on sale now. Finish 2014 off right.
