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.

Thoreau & Tina DeCara – Illusion

This post was originally published on this site

Thoreau’s new single “Illusion,” a collaboration with talented singer Tina DeCara, shows off a new dimension to the trap artist. The single starts on a highly melodic foot, launching the listener into an almost spiritual world of clever synthesis and warm, echo-y vocals. “Illusion” punches listeners in the gut with a bout of heavy bass and guitar riffs that stimulate the mind and cause a visceral reaction.

“Illusion” is Thoreau’s first original and comes as a strong follow up to successful remixes which include the likes of Drake’s “Girls Love Beyonce” and Trace’s “Low.” Both are great representations of Thoreau’s signature sound: mellowed out future bass with a hint of soul.
