Zedd – Ignite

Zedd was recently tapped with creating the anthem for 2016’s League of Legends World Championships in Los Angeles and yesterday the EDM superstud unveiled that progressive house effort, “Ignite.”. Full disclosure; I didn’t understand about five words I just typed in that last sentence. I’m gamer-challenged so please forgive me.

However, I am well-versed in all things Anton Zaslavski and he’s delivered another fine composition for his always impressing catalog. The cut builds on a few fake-out drops before intensifying into a synth-laden thrill-ride with twists and turns reminiscent of the game itself. Soloist Tim James also adds a layer of harmonic urgency with his full-throated vocals. Too bad festival season is over because this one would feel right at home.

Stream the fantastic visuals that accompany below and if you’re up for it, the 5-week League of Legends Worlds kicks off this week in San Francisco:
