Deadbeats Reunion: Zeds Dead & MKLA Drop Timeless Single “In My Head”
Aside from their established collection of deeply-electrifying bass hits, Zeds Dead never shy’s away from extending their signatures into the genre-defying sphere. With a dynamism that births melodies of monumental, electric affliction, Zed’s Dead seemed to have found their footing, while still remaining shapeless and boundless.
Between pop, ambient, and progressive house, the duo has done it all, but like all great artists, they found an infinity. Released on August 12th, the Deadbeat duo joined hands with MKLA to gift the world with the highly-anticipated, avant-garde garage-crossover “In My Head“– out now on all listening platforms.
Finding a partnership that fills the cracks while paving a new path is hard to come by, but when Zeds Dead teams with MKLA‘s bliss-stricken vocals, the magnetism is pervasive. Standing as “Alive‘s” successor, the hypnotic alliance had the upper hand in understanding one another. Having harnessed 18 million Spotify streams, their highest stream count to date, the candy-coated, effervescent whirlpool spinoff to “Alive” could only ascend from its pinnacle– and like always, it did not miss a beat.
Remaining as intoxicating as their on-stage personas, “In My Head” embodies the high-energy with an ambient undertone that gives way towards its mind-melding effect. With an interflow of MKLA‘s vocal serenity balanced by a collision of synthesized flipped drums, the track heads in the direction of modern nostalgia.
The part Euro-dance, part chill-whispering reverb emits a vibration that’s meant to soothe while still elevating massive amounts of dopamine. MKLA‘s voice does wonders on its own, but when following the airy-padded symphony of Zeds Dead‘s instrumentals, it cascades beyond expectation.
Heeding towards an intensity that never quite finds its breaking point is what keeps you on your toes and locked into its euphoric frenzy and kaleidoscopic trance– and the only thing that could make this track better is by seeing it live, fully surrendered to the lo-fi, and completely parallel to Zeds Dead‘s illusive energy. And the good news is, you can! The Deadbeats are heading to our cities, catch one of their sets near you–for more information visit here.
