The Legend of Zelda — new trend in the electronic music world?

14 Mar


At the end of last month, I made a post about upcoming dubstep tracks. Among that list was a song called “The Hero” by an up-and-comer, appropriately named Nostalgia. It featured an intro sampling the old-school theme song to the video game classic, The Legend of Zelda. We can expect that song to drop later this month on Play Me Too Records.

Now we have another EDM song to look forward to coming out this month featuring the legendary sample.

Zedd, an extremely hard working electro house producer, made famous by a couple of high profile Skrillex remixes, is now giving his fans a blast from the past. On Bazooka Records, he’ll be releasing his single “The Legend of Zelda,” along with Electrixx’s remix of it on March 21st. I have yet to hear the Electrixx remix, but it’s sure to be sick considering some of their fiery electro house tunes in the past like “Tetris” and “Tokyo Rush.”

Here’s a clip of Nostalgia’s dubstep take on the Zelda theme:

This is Zedd’s electro house take on it:

And just for fun…here’s Deadmau5′ old mix of “You Need A Ladder” which used this sample for an intro:
