Bass juggernauts Zeds Dead and Snails have joined forces for their new collaboration, "Magnets" featuring Akylla. Since it’s live debut live by Zeds Dead at their annual Dead Rocks event at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre in July, “Magnets” has become a crowd favorite at Zeds Dead and Snails shows alike.
The track features a powerful vocal performance from Akylla, and Zeds Dead and Snails blend their unique sounds of booming bass and stabbing basslines. It's definitely a heavy hitter. To sum up the track, Snails says ""Magnets' is all about putting together beautiful melodies and vocals with intense basslines to create a powerful love song. The mix of all our styles complimented each other exactly how we wanted and so happy how the song came out."
The new track comes right in the middle of Zeds Dead's 2nd Annual Deadbeats North American and European tour, which kicked off on June 9th in Salt Lake City and will consist of 19 shows across the continents before concluding in Seattle on November 30th. Shows across the tour are set to include Rusko, Borgore, GG Magree, 1788-L, G Jones, DNMO, Zeds Dead themselves, and many more. Like last year's iteration, each tour date features a different lineup unique to each city with 5-7 different artists, in addition to interactive fan elements like the Deadbeats Arcade which features free old games, food trucks, graffiti installations, and merchandise pop-ups.
