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’s “Set 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…
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!!
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!
My friend and ridiculously talented remix video producer JNX did an amazing remix video to me and DJ Marcel’s remix of “Clarity” by Zedd!! I absolutely ♥ ♥ ♥ what he did with the visual and wanted to share with you guys!
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’s “Clarity” 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. ;-)
Here’s a little slice of amazingness for your Sunday morning! Check out this MASSIVE Robin Skouteris & Pat Scott mashup-remix of Will.i.am & Britney’s club banger “Scream & Shout” that absolutely slays all other versions of this song. And just when I thought I’ve heard one too many version of this overly-remixed track… But seriously, all you producers need to move on. This one has officially been concurred!
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’s “Clarity” 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!
