Best of 2012: Fall Into the Sky

Best of 2012

Song: Fall Into the Sky (w/Ellie Goulding)
Artist: Zedd
Album: Clarity

And she strikes again...

This time 2012 darling Ellie Goulding teams up with fresh new German EDM producer Zedd on another killer dance track called "Fall Into the Sky."  It comes from his rather enjoyable if not game-changing debut album "Clarity."

I loved the album's title track featuring Foxes, as well as singles "Shave it Up," "Spectrum," and instrumental "Stache" which was used by Lady Gaga as a "sound puzzle" on her website LittleMonsters.  She released a vocal track she recorded and when laid on top of "Stache" gave you "Stache/Princess High," her high-energy ode to... marijuana.  (Zedd is one of the rumored producers on her 2013 album "ARTPOP.")

There are also collabs with One Republic's Ryan Tedder and Bright Light, but the standout is the Ellie track "Fall Into the Sky," another lush and emotional dancefloor banger that's been on repeat since I got the record.  That breakdown in the middle is insane!

The album is certainly worth the time to listen to, a little trance, a little electro, a little disco all stellar production.  Zedd's going to be one to watch.
