ZHU – Faded (ODESZA Remix)
Seattle’s finest duo, Odesza, have seized the opportunity to remix one of the most hyped about tracks on the Hype Machine. ZHU’s Faded reached the top spot… twice, received praise from the likes of Pete Tong, Billboard and Diplo and has hit over 2.5 million plays on his Soundcloud.
Odesza’s rework lures you into the track with a funky intro, utilising an industrial sounding guitar alongside skittish synths, complimenting every element of the masterful production. Odesza have firmly imprinted their brand sound on the track only utilising the vocals from the original sparingly. The track has definitely acquired a more dramatic, darker and cinematic turn but it compliments the original perfectly.
This is the first remix to be released from the Faded remix package coming out on Mind of a Genius/Th3rd Brain on the 29th June. Odezsa have set the standards pretty damn high, so we’re excited to hear what Lido, Taches, Amtrac and The Magician will be bringing to the table.
