Welcome back to Word of Mouth, your weekly round up of the latest and greatest EDM has to offer. This week we’re bringing you everything you could have asked for to kick off the New Year right. Sit back, relax, and let these fresh beats guide you into 2018.
Lights Go Down - Zeds Dead and Jauz
The unimaginable has happened. Zeds Dead has been making waves with new singles; racking up impressive numbers with their own as well as those released on their label, Deadbeats. Jauz has also been putting in work on his own label, Bite This! After announcing a brief b2b tour, Zeds Dead and Jauz have dropped a collab for the ages. “Lights Go Down” is the drum and bass banger we needed. Hopefully, this isn’t the last group project we’ll see from these gentlemen.
We Are Legend - 3 Are Legend
Another monster release from another supergroup. Steve Aoki and Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike have teamed up with actress Abigail Breslin on their latest collaborative track, “We Are Legend”. The trio has gotten together before, but only to slay festival crowds at venues like Tomorrowland, Ultra, and Creamfields. Now, they’ve brought their own tune to the table.
Blame - Ekali & ZHU
Who could have seen this one coming? Trap superstar Ekali and mystery man ZHU have joined forces to unleash a beautifully wild tune, “Blame”. Coming hot off of his Babylon Tour, Ekali is seemingly unstoppable at the moment. Similarly, ZHU hasn’t stepped out of the spotlight since his collaboration with Skrillex, “Working For It”. With production skill like these two have, it’s impossible to imagine what they’d be able to cook up next.
Flute Loop - Keys N Krates
It seems as if 2017 was the year of the flute, and Keys N Krates is continuing that trend. After dropping “Glitter” with Ambré Perkins and announcing their CURA Tour, the Canadian trio has unleashed another heater, “Flute Loop”. The tunes addictive melody and unique sound will undoubtedly hypnotize listeners and get the crowd going. The song is summed up well by the title, but trust us, it’s worth a listen.
The Trip - San Holo
No one was expecting a new EP from San Holo, but we can’t say we’re disappointed he dropped one this past week. The Trip is an enchanting collection of tunes, engaging the listener and asking them to take a trip within the first minute of the song. San Holo has had no issue getting us in our feels as of recent, forcing us to tear up with songs like “I Still See Your Face” and “One Thing”. His latest will is no different.
BITE THIS XMAS - Jauz
Jauz’s latest collaboration with Zeds Dead isn’t the only present he got us for Christmas. On Christmas Day, he blessed us with an x-mas compilation featuring insane remixes and singles from SVDDEN DEATH, Trav Piper, Lil Texas, YDG, and a slew of others. His Bite This! label is surely on the rise, and this latest compilation proves it.
