Ekali x Zhu

In the final days of 2017, Ekali and ZHU surprised the world by releasing their long-awaited collaboration, “Blame.” In the months since, the song has been heard in DJ sets across the world, thrilling listeners and inspiring producers to craft their own takes on the track.

The latest of these is Hunter Siegel, who’s released a slow-burning electro bootleg of the song. The Canadian producer has left many of the song’s original aspects intact, using the chorus as a place to put his own stamp on the collaboration. He chops up ZHU’s vocals and contrasts them with heavy layers of electro synths, giving the drop of the song an entirely different feel.

“As soon as I heard this tune drop I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it, and it came together perfectly,” Siegel shared in the song description.

Zeds Dead Drop Sick New Animated Music Video For ‘Blame’

This post was originally published on this site

Since Zeds Dead, Diplo, and vocalist Ellipant dropped “Blame” earlier in the summer, it’s entered the rotations of EDM fans and DJs alike to become one of the catchiest dubstep songs of the summer. Now I know it’s not “just another Monday” – because it’s Thursday – but I thought I’d go ahead and share the new music video for the single that’s just come out on Trap Nation.

I usually don’t cover music videos, but this animated piece is something of a visual masterpiece. It looks like the director Chris Yee drew a lot of inspiration from ’80s-styled cartoons (He-Man anyone?!) to come up with a powerful music video for a powerful song.

“With the music video, I wanted to channel in on the vicious cycle and nature of self-destruction — whether it comes to a weekend rager, technological development versus nature, or current events in youth versus authority…visually, I wanted to channel the look an an ’80s space opera.”
