Bass meets downtempo—stream Zeds Dead’s inaugural Altered States single, ‘late night drive’
The launch of Zeds Dead‘s new label, Altered States, officially sets sail with its freshly minted debut release,”late night drive.” Celebrating fives years of Deadbeats, the newly crowned label heads commemorate the occasion with a tune reflective of the platform’s focal on the chill and downtempo atmospheres of bass music. “late night drive” derives from the Canadian duo’s forthcoming 13-song mixtape, Catching Z’s.
“late night drive” fulfills the quest of drifting listeners to an altered state of consciousness as the track journeys back to early Zeds Dead influences of nostalgic 90s sample-based hip-hop, contemporary bass elements, and cinematic soundscapes. Entrancing dream-like piano melodies and overwhelming bass blend for an emotive illusion of pure apprehension, uniquely calling in a new chapter of musical exploration for Zeds Dead and their imprint.
