Zeds Dead Remixes Son Lux’ ‘Flickers’
Son Lux - Flickers (Zeds Dead Remix)

Toronto duo Zeds Dead proves once again that genre pigeonholing is for the unimaginative with their remix of Flickers by Ryan “Son Lux” Lott (pictured).

Though they made a name for themselves with their buzzsaw brand of dubstep, the years since Zeds Dead’s ascent have seen DC and Hooks experimenting with hip hop, trap, electro, old-school rave, and just about any other style that strikes their fancy. The original mix of Flickers is a haunting, minimal indie pop tune that nonetheless matches the darker side of trap music in terms of mood, which the Dead heads smartly exploit to great effect on their remix, enhancing Lott’s rich melodies with grinding walls of synth.

Like much of Zeds Dead’s output to date, the duo’s remix of Flickers is available to download for free in exchange for some love on Facebook.
