Mandatory Mashup: Nico & Vinz VS Zedd – Am I Wrong (DJ Taj VS Syn Cole Mashup Remix)

by: Taj | July 10th, 2014

While everyone else is serving throwbacks on this beautiful Thursday afternoon, I’m throwing a little shameless self promotion/’Mandatory Mashup’ your way instead! Check out the latest mashup remix that I just completed to drop into my summer sets. This time around I took on Nico & Vinz‘ “Am I Wrong” and used elements of the Syn Cole remix of Zedd’sFind You” as the musical backdrop! I think it turned out pretty nifty myself but I’ll let you be the judge! Check the the extended preview and if you enjoy it, I’ve included a link for you download pleasure!! I always appreciate feedback as well so please don’t be shy to tell me what you think… (Gulp) :-/

New Music: Ariana Grande Ft. Zedd – Break Free

by: Taj | July 2nd, 2014

Ariana Grande is dead set on solidifying her crown snatching as the new princess of pop by releasing a Zedd produced single titled “Break Free” as a follow up to her summer anthem, “Problem“. I’m really happy that Ariana is showing some versatility in her music (something Mariah Carey use to be known for) and throwing a little something for all of her fans on her forthcoming album, My Everything. What do you think of “Break Free“? Yay or nay??

Zedd Releases Incredible Live “Stripped Down” iTunes EP…

by: Taj | November 22nd, 2013

For those of you that are a fan of EDM producer/artist Zedd, the musical prodigy has just released an incredible live EP on iTunes which features stripped down versions of some of his biggest hits all recorded in one take!  If you listen closely to Zedd’s productions, it should come to no surprised to you that the “Clarity” mastermind is a classically trained musician and seasoned pianist which gives him an edge on a lot of other EDM producers who barely have sufficient musical theory training. That’s why this EP is so spectacular, we get to hear Zedd recreate his songs and present them in a way that showcases his extensive musical background. One track in particular that stands on the new release is a new rendition of “Hourglass” which features former American Idol runner-up Jessica Sanchez on lead vocals. Jessica’s live vocals soar on the song and of course Zedd’s reinvented production brings the drama! Take a listen…

And if you’re a fan of Zedd’s new single “Stay The Night” (as I am), the acoustic version which features Haley Williams is a much listen as well!

Ok, here;s one last track that I want to post to convince you guys that this EP is amazing! It’s a cover of Adele’sSet Fire To The Rain” which features the assistance of Miriam Bryant on vocals. Beautiful recreation of the classic Adele tune with a little surprise little ‘mashup’ vocal Easter egg hidden in the middle of it. Check it out…

Video Premiere: Zedd & Hayley Williams – Stay The Night

by: Taj | September 23rd, 2013

Zedd is back with a vengeance off the heals of his massive hit “Clarity” with a new song that could be described as a younger sister to his Foxes assisted hit called “Stay The Night” featuring Paramore’s lead singer Hayley Willaims on vocals. I’m already all about it… But then again, Zedd is a musical/EDM genius in my book! Check out the just released music video for the future club hit!!

Sneak Peek: Zedd Ft. Hayley Williams (Of Paramore) – Stay The Night

by: Taj | September 5th, 2013

I must say that out of all the EDM producers, I think Zedd is ahead of his game and an absolute music genius! His brand new Hayley Williams (Lead singer ofParamore) assisted track that he’s previewing called “Stay The Night” proves once again that the man can producer one mean EDM pop number! I cannot wait for this to take over the clubs and the radio airwaves so I can play the hell out of it till it makes my ears bleed and I grow to despise it! (That’s usually what happens with his ridiculously catchy singles that end up getting played out to death!) In the mean time… I’m super excited!

Remix Treatment: Zedd Ft. Foxes – Clarity (DJ Taj & DJ Marcel’s Relentless Chase Remix)

by: Taj | March 28th, 2013

Myself and a good friend of mine DJ Marcel have been hard at work on our first collaborative production together for the last few weeks! We tackled Zedd’sClarity” and steered the song into a much different direction/sound that most of the official remixes have taken it. We decided to ditch the happy euphoric feel of the original and give it a little more of a darker progressive edge to match it’s intense and somewhat dark lyrics. We also went this route to give an alternate version to all of the official Electro remix productions that have been released. We hope you all enjoy our take on “Clarity” and look forward to any feedback. ;-)

Oh and please feel free to SHARE, SHARE, SHARE!!!

Remix Treatment: Zedd Ft. Foxes – Clarity (Coreography Wepa Mix)

by: Taj | January 14th, 2013

My friend DJ Corey Craig is taking the exciting natural progression in his music career and will be transitioning into the coveted DJ/PRODUCER dual-moniker. Corey’s first full solo production that he helmed from scratch is a remix of Zedd’sClarity” which I must say will be getting a lot of spins in my sets from this day forward! A very impressive and clean production that sounds like it was constructed by a seasoned professional! If this first solo-production is a taste of what it yet to come from the new producer… I can’t wait to hear where his musical journey is heading!!

By the way, Corey has entered his mix into a “Clarity” remix contest! If you are a fan of this mix after taking a listen, please visit the contest page and vote for Corey’s work!
