When listening to the “bury a friend” by Billie Eilish, you’ll note that the vocals stand out as percussive elements that you might find in a horror movie. Around the two minute mark, a heavy synth glides by, leaving bass heads yearning for more low-end action. The track works with so much empty space that a remix to fill the original’s sonic voids seemed only a matter of time, and now, Zeds Dead deliver a rework that does just that.
The Deadbeats label bosses add their classic spin to Eilish’s track, which hails from Eilish’s debut LP, WHEN WE FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO? The result is a gritty, downtempo bass remix of the aforementioned album inclusion. The remix has an “Eyes On Fire” feel, evocative of Zeds Dead’s highly acclaimed take on the Blue Foundation original. Playing with a dynamic percussion patterns and sustained bass notes that rest among Eilish’s sultry vocals, this collaboration fits like a glove.
