This one really thrilled me when I encountered it earlier today. I was one of many people who were exuberantly happy when Broken Bells, aka Danger Mouse and James Mercer, returned with their sophomore album After The Disco. Early single Holding On For Life was one of my favorite tunes of the moment for quite some time. Imagine my surprise when I found out that the song has been remixed by none other than Canadian electronic duo Zeds Dead. I hit the play button cautiously, not too sure what to expect… would it be dubstep? Electro house? Something heavy, exhilarating, and hard hitting? I feared that the original would be drowned out with too much EDM, but I’m happy to say that Zeds Dead’s remix of Holding On For Life is a balanced, well constructed, refreshing electro house take that allows the original and Mercer’s falsetto’s to shine through in all its pristine glory.
