How you gonna get down so dirty and get lifted so high all at once? That’s a feeling that can only be explained by listening to Zeds Dead and Delta Heavy’s collaborative single “Lift You Up.” It’s a devilish dose of drum’n’bass energy that also hits you with some serious melodies. Its soulful vocal sample makes for a true singalong.
It’s the first official pairing from the U.K. bass behemoths and Canadian crushers, but it’s a mingled sound we wouldn’t mind hearing more of. “Lift You Up” is light, even downright pretty, even while its beat bangs to a massive climax. These four heads hit a sweet spot, for sure.
“Lift You Up” sees simultaneous release on Deadbeats and Ram Records Friday, Jan. 18, but you can listen to it a day ahead of schedule exclusively on Billboard Dance.
