Zedd reconvenes with Grey for first single of 2018, ‘The Middle’

Zedd

After a 2017 led by the smash success of his double-platinum, Alessia Cara-assisted single, “Stay,” 2018 holds high expectations for Zedd. “Stay” held a consecutive six-week residency at the #1 spot on Top 40 radio in the US, and “The Middle” looks primed to be another contender for the top of the charts.

The track also sees Zedd reprise his collaborative efforts with Grey, the electronic duo memorable for their earlier collaborative work with Zedd on “Starving.” In additon, Grammy Award winning country music singer Maren Morris supplies vocals.

With each successive “Z” stamped single released, Zedd further solidifies his stature as one of the biggest stars in popular music. Morris’ vocal contribution serves as the track’s backbone, complemented by a subtle clock ticking that establishes the underlying beat line while keeping rhythm, percussive elements that aid the song’s eventual ascension, and the metallic synth work that have become characteristic of a Zedd single.

A release situated directly within Zedd’s electro-pop wheelhouse, “The Middle” signifies that Zedd long ago hit his stride in the studio, rendering each ensuing release one that hits just the right sonic sweet spot.

Following in the titular fashion of his double-platinum single, when it comes to Las Vegas, Zedd is there to “Stay.”

The entertainment capital of the world will see Zedd grace a variety of Hakkasan Group venues, with the world renowned hospitality company officially extending the Grammy nominee’s residency into 2020 in what is Hakkasan Group’s first residency renewal of the new year. Zedd will accordingly appear at Hakkasan Nightclub, WET REPUBLIC at MGM Grand, and OMNIA Nightclub.

“Zedd has been a fantastic addition to our artist roster, and we’re excited to continue our partnership with this multi-year residency extension,” says Hakkasan Vice President James Algate of the renewal, “Every time he takes the stage, he provides fans with an energetic and dynamic experience, which is exactly what we set out to achieve through all of our venues.”

Zedd echoes the sentiment, pronouncing Vegas to be “like a second home.” “It’s always great to get to play for my fans there,” Zedd remarks, ““The crowds bring such great energy every time and I’m excited to continue to be a part of the Hakkasan family.”

Industry sweetheart Zedd has extended an all inclusive invitation to bullying victim, Keaton Jones. Jones caught the Internet’s attention after his mother uploaded a brief video of Jones tearfully describing the bullying that he has been subjected to at school.

Hakkasan and OMNIA announce ‘monstrous’ line-up for Halloween weekend in Vegas

This post was originally published on this site

Las Vegas can very well be called the USA’s Ibiza, as it consistently brings in the world’s best talent no matter the time of year. However, unlike the rave White Island, the city continues to party all year round with A-list DJs literally flocking in and out of there on a daily basis. The Hakkasan Group have proven themselves as worthy gatekeepers to Las Vegas’ inimitable nightlife time after time with impressive lineups. With a massive, festival-esque benefit show slated for November at OMNIA, Hakkasan has also just announced their extensive line-up for Halloween weekend.

OMNIA will put on its third and final installment of the “Phantom of the Opera” themed trilogy that’s seen massive success over the past two years, featuring performances by Calvin Harris, Zedd, Kaskade and more. If that’s not thrilling enough for the audience, Hakkasan will invite attendees to step “Beyond the Wall” with its second chapter of the medieval themed party, featuring sets by Steve Aoki, Lil Jon, Above & Beyond, and even some tech-house vibes from Hodor himself, Kristian Nairn.

Zedd to sit in on drums at Linkin Park’s upcoming Chester Bennington memorial show

This post was originally published on this site

It’s a well-known fact that acclaimed electro and progressive house producer Zedd began his music career as a drummer, before he made the fateful over to a Digital Audio Workstation and the international superstardom that followed. However, the veteran producer has kept in touch with his percussiion passion, as he is all set to join Linkin Park on drums for a song during a heartfelt Chester Bennington memorial performance.

This news comes just after the band released a touching tribute to their late lead singer with the official music video for “One More Light.” Beyond a glimpse of Zedd in a different setting, the upcoming show indicates just how well respected Bennington was within the music community — and how far his influence extended beyond the trappings of rock music.

The memorial show will be held October 27 at the Hollywood Bowl in LA.

Calvin Harris is the latest producer to join a growing list of high profile artists donating in the wake of the tragedy. Harris announced that he would be donating the show fee from his performance at the Omnia nightclub on October 14 to the Vegas Victims fund via an Instagram post.

Other producers to pledge their support include Diplo, Tiësto, Kaskade, NGHTMRE, and Zedd among many others. The tragedy in Vegas has shaken the music industry to its core, and artists and fans alike have come together in a show of strength and support for Las Vegas.

Zedd – Get Low ft Liam Payne (KUURO Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

This past summer, Zedd and Liam Payne released a beach-ready, tropical-infused track called “Get Low” that climbed the charts all over the world. With an easygoing beat and sexually-charged lyrics, listeners gravitated toward the carefree feel of the single.

Enter KUURO, a heavy-hitting bass duo, who have crafted their own intense future house take on the track. Hastening the original’s pace, KUURO transforms the single’s mellow tone for a comparatively fierce, harder vibe destined for the dance floor. Delivering a thumping drop with dub roots, KUURO’s re-imagination of “Get Low” is a thundering take that won’t soon be forgotten.
