Zeds Dead and Illenium’s massive new collaboration is here! Zeds Dead has kept the anticipation high for the release, teasing the song at the end of their epic Dead Rocks set at the beginning of July. Today the wait for the collab, titled “Where The Wild Things Are,” is finally over, and it’s everything we expected from the producers and more.
Although Zeds Dead and Illenium have a noticeably different signature these days, “Where The Wild Things Are” allows both of their styles to shine through. The song starts slow with a somber guitar melody and haunting vocal lead in, moving into a build that’s bursting with energy. The first drop is where Zeds Dead’s dubstep influence shows, utilizing warbling synths, intense bass and heavy percussion. This flows into a bridge, with the second half of the drop showcasing Illenium’s more melodic, future bass style. This sort of alternation continues throughout, with each genre blending seamlessly together. Check out the massive collaboration below and enjoy!
