“Eyes On Fire” – Blue Foundation (Zeds Dead Remix)
Arguably one of the most iconic and well-known Zeds Dead remixes, dropped in 2009 and is still relevant as ever 13 years later. This timeless remix is packed full of nostalgia and is a Zeds Dead classic.
“Miracle Man” – Oliver Tree (Zeds Dead Remix)
This remix showcases how effortlessly Zeds Dead can take a track and amplify it. A banger with OG dubstep vibes that needs a lot more recognition.
“Touch” – 3LAU & Carly Paige (Zeds Dead Remix)
Future classic remix that carries a lot of emotion. Heavy and melodic at the same time for a brilliant take on a stunning track.

Another old-school vibe that will always stand the test of time. This remix completely melts you and the second drop is incredibly powerful.
“Flickers” – Son Lux (Zeds Dead Remix)
A suspenseful beginning that leads you into some pure gold. The slow beat and hypnotizing vocals will have you mesmerized in no time.
“Take Ü There” – Skrillex, Diplo, Kiesza (Zeds Dead Remix)
One of the best versions of this song. Major banger that’ll ignite any dancefloor!
“GodLovesUgly” – Atmosphere (Zeds Dead & Subtronics Remix)
Such a killer combination and dirty in the best way. Love hearing each artist’s individual sound shine through this remix.

Another all-time fan favorite is their unreleased mashup of “Eleanor Rigby” that they sometimes sprinkle into some lucky enough sets.
