Today is unfortunately the last day of this challenge. It went by so fast! I can’t believe it! Today, I will post some of my favorite Z-letter artists. Let me first tell you that I had quite some difficutlies with finding any artists with Z that I actually liked. To be honest I don’t kow them so well. But, let’s just begin and see what comes out :)
1) Zarvos Marcelo
Birth Name: Marcelo Uchoa Zarvos
Born in: 1969. Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Discography: Dualism (1994), Labyrinths (1997), Music Journal (2000)
I know Zarvos from the movie Remember Me with Robert Pattinson. The movie was so sad and beautiful. I cried at the end. And the music contributed to it quite a lot. If you want to listen to his beautiful music, here you go:
Other Songs I like: Wake Up Call, Remember Me, …
Birth Name: Isabelle Geffroy
Born in: 1 May, 1980. Tours, Paris.
Genre(s): Jazz, Chanson
Discography: ZAZ (2010), Recto Verso (2013)
Of course everyone knows her song Je Veux, which was a super hit about 3 years ago. I loved that song. It will always remind me of the easiness of my summer holidays :) Here is a nice song of her.
Other Songs I like: Je veux, Comme ci comme ca, La fete, …
3) Zed’s Dead:
Members: DC, Hooks
Formed in: 2009. Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
Genre(s): Bass music, dubstep, drumstep, drum and bass, electro house, glitch
Discography: Rudeboy (2010), Adrenaline (2012), Victor EP (2012), The Living Dead (2012), Hot Sauce (2013)
I don’t know from where I know this electro duo, but they are named after a phrase from my all-time favorite movie Pulp Fiction. I know that this duo has an awesome sound. It is nice to party to, but also to chill to, or even to study :) Of course, there are typical features of dubstep to it, but also some glitch elements which are good to dance to. I actually like it. It has its own voice. Here is an example.
Other Songs I like: Hit Me, Oh No,…
This letter went by so fast today. It was the final, and one of the most difficult letters for this challenge. I have to admit that I don’t regularly listen to any of those artists mentioned here. I used to listen to Zarvos’ OST for Remember Me very often, and I really likee Zaz’s song. Zed’s Dead is quite new for me, so I can say that I quite seldom listen to those artists.
