"We Made a Lane of Our Own, We Ain't Assimilators"

A few weeks back Zeds Dead made their GWDJ debut with their collaboration with Diplo on Blame. I'm not going to pretend to know the scope of their talents or abilities, but I'll say this...I'm intrigued. I am because the two tracks that I've written about are so different that I don't even know where to start.

I guess I'll start with their new single with Pusha T and Rivers Cuomo. Here I was thinking an EDM/Hip Hop collaboration with some stellar cameo vocals was on tap and what I got was a mellow sing along. You might be thinking that's a bad thing, but it actually came together pretty well. Too Young has a couple of things going for it. For one, good luck trying to avoid singing along to Weezer's own Rivers Cuomo on the hook. Second, Pusha T eats these slow, poppy beats for lunch. His brand of storytelling plays really well on tracks with this slow of a tempo. This one will be surfacing on Zeds Dead's upcoming Northern Lights album due out in about a week. Given my lack of experience with their music and overall curiousity with their music, you better believe I'll be running a few laps around the album when it drops...#TooYoung
