DJ Zedd born Anton Zaslavski, 27, is worldwide famous for his heart throbbing, vein pumping electronic dance songs. You’ll most notably recognise Zedd’s rise to fame when he unleashed the epic song that is 2012’s release ‘Clarity’ featuring U.K artist ‘Foxes’ the song was an instant smash and went on to revive a GRAMMY award in the later stages of release.
Fast forward to July 2017 where Zedd – like a lot of his work – has collaborated with another current artist bringing us another pop, dance electro crafted song. This time teaming up former One Direction band member ‘Liam Payne’. This time around the duo bring us a classic pop formulated, radio ready track entitled ‘Get Low’.
Instantaneously your ear drums are met with a top heavy bass line and infectious snaps assuring your attention is given to the song. Not long after comes in Liam’s pop classic tones, singing
“Shake too low but that don’t mean much, Sensitive tough, you don’t get enough / I’ve been drowning in your, lost in the rush, Faded you’re stuck, I help you up”
The songs chorus is an infectious combination of more snaps, jazzy synths and Liam’s vocal repetition of ‘Get Low’ whilst the bass line sizzles directly underneath the already electrified production. Zedd’s touch is absolutely visible throughout the song, his typical slow build sits behind Liam’s vocalised parts.
The three minute twenty five second ensemble shouts loud about the admiration of a woman or women? It’s not 100 percent clear. I assume the initial meaning behind it all is to glorify women: maybe asking them to “Get Low” with them? It’s most defiantly a party anthem for sure.
Though I do have to say, despite the quirkiness of the song, it’s not the groundbreaker I expected. Maybe that’s partly because I’ve been used to the constant sonically challenging songs Zedd is known for. This particular attempt seems to make it’s way down the ‘generalised’ route ensuring a safe hit for radio.
Overall it’s defiantly worthy to be on my playlists this summer, sure to hit a radio near you soon. I respect the two artists massively in the industry, they’re both innovative in their own right.
“Get Low” is out on iTunes and all major streaming services right now.
