You’ve heard of spaghetti westerns, but how about dubstep westerns? In their new and first collaboration “Ecstasy of Soul”, GRiZ and Zeds Dead have a major influence on the classic Western sound motifs. If it seems impossible that the Denver artist and Canadian duo haven’t worked together before, then not only are you wrong, but you’re lucky you’re here to hear the very first.
The track first debuted in September 2021 during the first-ever Zeds Dead B2B GRiZ set at Goldrush Music Festival in Phoenix and has become their most requested song of the year.
Regarding the collaboration, Zeds Dead said, “We did a big back-to-back set in Arizona and wanted to create something super epic for the intro. We exchanged a few ideas and finally decided to try something with a version of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly theme. Something from the Wild West and the new frontier seemed to be calling our name. GRiZ is the best and was a lot of fun working on it, it took us back to our old remix days. We’ve played it at every show since then and it’s gotten the craziest reactions. I’m thrilled to finally get it out!”
GRiZ added: “After playing this song on shows for a year, I’m thrilled to finally release it! I’ve always been a fan of the Zeds Dead Homies and working with them is a dream come true!”
GRiZ and Zeds Dead invite fans to stream “Ecstasy Of Soul” now via Deadbeats.
