Many electronic artists are known for their particular styles, whether it’s the use of a particular synth, drum loop, melody, key, or string of notes. Often, these artists may end up turning down requests for collaborations if their style doesn’t mesh with the other artist. Zeds Dead and DROELOE are two artists whose styles we didn’t think would mesh; but after hearing them together on their new song “Stars Tonight,” it’s scary how well they actually do.
Both Zeds Dead and DROELOE have kept the releases pretty light for 2019, making this collaboration even more special. And even though both artists add their own flavor to the release as a whole, it’s fairly easy to see where each contributed more. DROELOE’s melodic inclinations are on full display in the main lead, while Zeds Dead have a heavier hand in the drums, particularly the breaks (at 1:57), and the second drop.
“Stars Tonight” is a unique collaboration that manages to play to the strengths of both artists equally, which isn’t something you find every day. Check it out below Deadbeats.
