While largely known for their dubstep, Zeds Dead have never let genre restrictions limit their productions. A tribute to that versatility, their recent remix of Marina and the Diamonds’ “Lies” seamlessly fuses elements of electro house and hip-hop into an unforgetable tune.
Working with an otherwise sweet and melodic track, Zeds Dead chose to make it a bit more exciting. They added a tight electro bassline and kept Marina’s beautiful vocals, refraining from an overly heavy drop. As a result, the emotions of the original are maintained by swelling pads and reverberating piano chords, while the rework's gritty bassline adds an energetic edge which will appeal to Marina fans and dance music fans alike.
