Spring Awakening Music Festival was a hotbed of unreleased material over the weekend, seeing Dillon Francis drop four unheard collabs into his set, including his remix of Calvin Harris and Rihanna’s “This Is What You Came For.” Now, two more videos from the festival have surfaced to give fans the first taste of a few yet to be released collaborations from Toronto based duo Zeds Dead, who dropped their upcoming Diplo and NGHTMRE tracks into their performance.
The NGHTMRE collab is a surprising exploration of future bass, propelled by a catchy vocal track, rhythmic synth chords and hard hitting drums. It’s markedly softer than most of NGHTMRE’s output, but meets the high productions standards set by his other work.
The track with Diplo served as the one more in line with Zeds Dead’s set, and features vocalist Elle Von. Utilizing radio friendly verses with a stripped back production, the Diplo collab moves suddenly into explosive bass heavy drops with plenty of dance floor appeal.
There’s no word yet on when the two new collaborations will be released, but Zeds Dead clearly has some big things in store for us over the next few months.
