The name ‘Zelda’ may bring on memories of a camp green video game character, but at number 14 in the night edition of DMC World’s Miami Buzz Chart, NO_ID and Martin Volt’s similarly named new cut is sure to put a stop to that. Representing Axtone at this year’s Miami Music Week and brandishing remix duties for David Guetta, Nicky Romero and Thomas Gold alike, NO_ID unite with homeland peer Volt for a perceptive romp for fellow Dutch powerhouse Robbert van de Corput’s Revealed imprint.
Boasting a uniquely tailored canvas of dancing synth play and rising Electro-tinged riffs, the main edit of ‘Zelda’ reigns in a mature sound scope of well-tuned melodic play from the outset. Paving the perfect route for Hardwell himself to pitch an edit of alternative dimensions to the original cut, both NO_ID and Martin Volt prove worthy of the limelight with this exciting collaborative endeavour of alternative Dutch flavours.
