Zeds Dead and Oliver Heldens experienced rapid ascents in 2014; Zeds Dead collaborated with indie superstar Twin Shadow and remixed Jack Ü while Heldens climbed the British charts with "Gecko (Overdrive)" and put together an insanely good mix for BBC at year's end, which featured a variety of remixes and originals from the young producer. The hype for both artists led to a mere minute-and-thirty-second snippet of their collaboration garnering over 700,000 listens on SoundCloud. On the final cut of "You Know," the two rising powers come together as one to deliver an subversive, silky club tune that cements their vision on dance music's trajectory.
The song represents the best house music has to offer at the moment, with heavy yet melodic bass, sampled high pitch garbled vocals that just make you want to groove, and glitched out synth riffs. I have a lingering feeling that a lot of people are going to turn up to this stupendous new release from Spinnin' Records over the weekend.
