Zedd – Illusion ft Echosmith (Marcus Schossow & Years Remix)

This post was originally published on this site

That Zedd gravitates towards vocal centric song constructions is hardly a secret—listeners can look of late to the producer’s collaboration with Maren Morris and Grey, “The Middle,” or can alternatively trace back to 2012’s “Clarity” with Foxes.

Zedd released his second studio album, True Colors, back in 2015, an offering that concluded with the Echosmith assisted number, “Illusion.” A formidable closing track to the 11-song offering, “Illusion” centered lead singer Sydney Sierota’s vocals in a lush and intricately arranged bed of piano driven synth work.

Now, the album standout gets a rework from Marcus Schossow and Years, who collectively amplify the cinematic quality of the original with their addition of atmospheric tones at the song’s onset, and festival progressive synths that climactically build just before each drop.
