Zedd’s Zelda project out now on Beatport

21 Mar


I mentioned last week that Zedd, the electro house producer gaining steam with Skrillex and Black Eyed Peas remixes, had given his fans a peek into his new single. This was his original mix “The Legend of Zelda.”

Today it was finally given its official Beatport release through Bazooka Records.
This single is that classic clean Zedd sound, and you’d be missing out if you didn’t take a listen. Along with this single is the Electrixx remix which is incredibly hard hitting and a must-hear.

Buy it here on Beatport:

I’ve already uploaded the Zedd song in this article, so you can hear it there. However, here is the Electrixx remix:

More Zelda sampling — “Ocarina of Rhyme”

15 Mar


I feel like a broken record having just talked about The Legend of Zelda samples yesterday, and I know this remix album came out long ago in spring of 2009, but it’s too awesome not to bring up.

With this album, Team Teamwork compiled many of the beloved songs from the Zelda world (such as the themes to “The Lost Woods,” “The Great Fairy Fountain,” and “Finding Treasure” to name a few) and mashed them up with the beats and acapella tracks to classic Hip Hop songs.

I can’t do these mash-ups justice through words, so you’ll just have to take a listen for yourself. Below is a link to Team Teamwork’s blog where you can download this superb album for free!

Clipse’s Virginia mashed with the famous Lost Woods theme:

MF Doom’s Vomitspit mashed with the Lon Lon Ranch Horse Race song:

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:
