Zedd is one of the few producers that was able to climb to mainstream stardom in a short amount of time. Since the release of his album Clarity back in late 2012, he has seen immense success and collaborations with larger-than-life artists – in 2016 he’s collaborated with Aloe Blacc, Kesha, and Hailee Steinfeld.
His newest record that has just been released is titled “Ignite” with vocals by Tim James. Teaming up with Riot Games, “Ignite” will be the theme for the 2016 League of Legends World Championship this October.
“Ignite” channels everything we’ve come to know from Zedd and shows him going back to his roots.
Progressive buildups, great vocals, and a melodic yet energetic drop are staples of Zedd‘s electro-house style. “Ignite” is Zedd going back to his roots and channeling influences from classic tracks of his.
League of Legends is the most played computer game in the world and its world championship live-stream gets millions of views. For e-sports, its arguably the biggest event of the year and for Zedd to create the theme is a huge move for him. We’re excited to hear him back in his fiefdom and hope he puts out more great tracks like these this year.
