No matter what we think, whatever Zedd puts out never fails to become a “sure win”.

The 26-year-old Russian-German hitmaker recently teamed up with American soul vocalist Aloe Blacc to rework the “Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory” theme song, “The Candy Man”. The original song was popularised by Sammy Davis Jr. in 1972 and later became a worldwide smash hit so big that it went on to receive a Grammy nomination for “Best Male Pop Vocal Performance”.


Zedd reimagined the song in honour of M&M’s 75th anniversary celebration and we gotta say that it’s suh-weet! Pun totally intended 😉

The DJ/producer/musician managed to retain the groove from the classic song while adding his own drum pattern and signature synth sounds to the new track. It doesn’t sound like anything that he has done previously for his other songs in “True Colors” or “Clarity”, but at the same time, it’s refreshing!

Aloe Blacc rich vocals also perfectly complements the interesting track, singing, “Living for tomorrow, lost within a dream, trying to find the answer to the question and it seems that love makes the world feel good / Singing in the moonlight, dancing in the rain, let the sunshine through to lift your spirit once again cause love makes the world feel good.”

Of course, it helps that the track has an equally interesting music video to boot, featuring some of your colourful, button-shaped chocolates as well as Zedd and Aloe Blacc. Feel the good vibes. Feel it:
