The stripped-back edit appears on a new remix bundle for the duo’s “Catching Z’s” mixtape.
While largely devoid of their signature wobbly sound, Catching Z’s was a masterclass in versatility. The diverse nature of the record is reflected in its remix package, which features edits by A-BO, Pocket, and a collaborative rework from QUIET VISON and IMANU.
The EP kicks off with Zeds Dead’s acoustic version of “i think you’re cool,” a future bass-inspired track featuring a hypnotic top-line from singer-songwriter Jenna Pemkowski. Her vocals are much more forceful here thanks to the removal of all drums, offering a poignant ballad.
Pocket goes the house route, flipping “i think you’re cool” into a shuffler’s anthem while A-BO does the same with Z’s cut “lost birds,” but with a melodic techno twist. IMANU and QUIET BISON’s remix, however, is the unquestioned heavyweight. Genres be damned, the two producers have mutated the feathery original into a mind-melting bass number that explores house and glitched-out trap.
The release of the remix pack arrives on the heels of Zeds Dead’s first live shows since March 2020. They’re back in full force, recently performing at Colorado’s iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre on back-to-back nights in early July for their fan-favorite “Deadrocks” experience.
