"Stache" is an instrumental song written and produced by German electronic dance music producer Zedd from his debut studio album Clarity. An extended version of the track was released as a single on October 9, 2012 by Interscope Records.[2]

Reception

Andy Kellman of Allmusic said that Zedd was "not quite in a field of his own yet" and that "'Stache' shamelessly displays the [Zedd]'s indebtedness to key Justice influence Daft Punk – it might as well be subtitled "Aerodynamic 2K12" – but he's getting there" but concluded with the statement that "Anyone who appreciates well-crafted dance-pop should probably keep up with him" and gave Clarity four out of five stars.[1] MTV Iggy wrote "['Stache''s] climbing synth chords matches the tension and confusion while plentiful bass packs a powerful punch. We hold our breaths down to the very last minute – and ‘til the awesome end-of-song-breakdown."[3]

Music video

The official music video for "Stache" premiered on October 2, 2012. It is directed by David D. Navarro (known also by the stage name "Roboto"), who also designed the cover artwork for Clarity.[4]

Lady Gaga remix

Vocals by Lady Gaga (whom Zedd opened for during the Asian leg of her Born This Way Ball tour) were posted by her on SoundCloud on October 6, 2012. She then asked fans to pair the vocal track with "Stache" and selected a winner.[5] The track concludes with "DJ Zedd/ Anton, turn it up/ Let's party, let's get messed up". Jocelyn Vena of MTV said the remix was a "crunchy, at times light-hearted track, which features Gaga over the EDM star's grinding, dirty production."[6]
