The two time Grammy Nominated producer is kicking off the year with a new EP titled, The Hidden Memoir, out on now.
Hot off the heels of his debut album Golden Age, Dustin Burnett, better known as ZAYDE WØLF, shows no indication of slowing down. The two time Grammy Nominated producer is kicking off the year with a new EP titled, The Hidden Memoir, out on now.
“Built for this Time” was the first ZAYDE WØLF song ever written. The song came to life in 2015 when Burnett was working on creating a new drum sample pack for his Nashville-based drum sample company, That Sound. The pack he was creating was specifically intended for marching drum sounds. In the process, he started playing around with the sounds and came up with an instrumental that he was inspired by, so he decided to write to it. At the time, he had a friend going through some unfortunate health issues, so he pulled from his friends story and strength and applied it into his lyrics – Burnett recalls, “I kept thinking as long as they “keep the blood pumping” he’ll be okay.” With a catchy and inspiring chorus now locked in, Burnett added even more grit to the drum sounds, pushing them to punch you right in the gut. The result turned out to be one of ZAYDE’s most popular songs to date, “Built For This Time”. Fast forward to late 2016 and after hundreds of sync placements, Burnett wanted to re-invent his own song and create a cinematic version. This in turn sparked the idea to create a music video around the new version.
This video’s protagonist is played by Burnett’s youngest son, borrows part of its narrative from the classic Little Red Riding Hood tale – peppered in with the dark and eerie aesthetic of Netflix’s Stranger Things. The video portrays the classic story of good triumphing over evil and in the end the lead character defeats the darkness with light.
The Hidden Memoir is available now on all digital retailers. ZAYDE’s signature sound; powerful, adrenaline-rushing, alternative-pop songs that are sure to fill any room or stage. ZAYDE brings us four new original songs, including a cinematic version of the popular “Built for This Time,” (inspired by the music video), and a trailerized remix of “Heroes” by the talented Australian trailer composer, Generdyn – which already has gained over a million plays on YouTube.
