Zedd – Clarity (Torro Torro Remix)

Zedd - Clairty (Torro Torro Remix)

A massive Clarity Remix EP came out on Beatport today, which you can buy right here. There were a lot of great remixes but the best one had to be Torro Torro’s rendition. While still keeping the vocals in full force maintaining the passion of the song, they give it an amazing hard intro. This intro immediately captivates your attention and gets you amped up for the rest of the song. Before any vocals come, they immediately go into the drop, which has that infamous Torro Torro sound. Finally the vocals arrive, and the song just comes together as a whole with the vocals,the intro beat, and then of course the unbelievable drop that just makes you want to go crazy all tied together. A really great song by a really great artist. This may be their best remix yet. Hopefully later today I’ll post a download link, but for now enjoy the full song on one of UKF’s Youtube channels.

From an industry perspective, Zedd is poised to be one of the most influential artists of the whole “EDM” thing. The job that Jimmy Iovene has done since bringing Zedd on to Interscope is nothing short of astounding. The German’s debut album Clarity reached the #1 spot on iTunes in almost every category and he’s been the first electronic artist to play live on The Late Show with David Letterman backed by a string section and Alvin Risk singing backup vocals. This Union Mix from Zedd expands on this performance by adding what sounds like a full orchestra and a studio-perfected/on-key vocal from Foxes. The entire Clarity Remix EP comes out on iTunes 2/12 with remixes from names like Tiesto, Brillz & Dyro.

Zedd – Clarity ft. Foxes (Live On David Letterman)

Mark this as a monster win for the increasing public perception of electronic music. For those of you that don’t understand the radical musical talent behind the production of artists like Zedd, this shows you the potential of the movement. Zedd made his first network television appearance tonight backed by a string section of six, Foxes and a backup vocalist (IS THAT ALVIN RISK!?) and did the entire electronic movement more than proud in my humble opinion by performing a beautiful rendition of the title track from his debut album Clarity. Here’s a personal congratulations to Anton Zaslavski; thanks for the reaffirmation that the sky is in fact the limit.

Zedd – Clarity feat. Foxes (Acoustic Version)

Zedd Clarity Foxes Acoustic Version Video

There is something undeniable about anything that Zedd puts his hands on. Whether it’s a gritty grimy tracks like Stache, powerful songs like Spectrum or just straight classics like the title track of his Breakthrough Record of the Year according to iTunes, you know its the highest quality out right now. Blending the perfect amount of bass with the type of melodies only a classically trained pianist could bring to life, this stripped down piano version just goes to prove what kind of talent is behind these productions.

Zedd – Clarity ft. Foxes (Moiez Remix)

Zedd and his management just has this dance music market figured out. Step 1: Release entire album; none of the tracks are in their extended mixes. Step 2: Release all of the extended mixes as their own singles so you can keep momentum going/DJs happy. Step 3: Have such amazing vocal parts that you can release all of the acapellas so that you can spawn producers from all of the bedroom talent around the world. This high energy edit from TNJ favorite Moiez is the next victim of the remix treatment and it is just monstrous. Pure production perfection and an awesome addition to a list of remixers that includes Aylen & Kastra!

Zedd – Clarity ft. Foxes (Aylen Remix)

God I hate having two tests on one day. I’m gonna be rotting away in the library studying for most of today so my posts will be a bit sporadic but with that said, I couldn’t wait to get this up on the site. Aylen adds his name to the list of people who remixed Clarity since Zedd gave out the studio acapella and it has already became one of my favorites. He takes the Adventure Club/Seven Lions approach by employing some beautiful melodic progressions with a dubstep kinda feel to it.

Zedd – Clarity ft. Foxes (Kastra Remix) + Studio Acapella

I look away from my computer for 3 seconds and it just hits the fan. Zedd is so savvy on how to market this new modern electronic music market and earlier today he released the vocal acapella to the title track to his debut album Clarity. Turns out some other people have had the acapella a bit earlier than others such as Kastra and now that it’s out in the open, he just put it up his own remix of the song for free download via his Facebook page! Grab the remix below and producers can grab the acapella after the jump!

Zedd – Stache ft. Lady GaGa

While I would never have dreamed about expecting a collaboration like this on Clarity, the fact that it just got its release doesn’t surprise me at all. I’ve heard grumblings that there are too many vocals on Zedd’s major label debut album but adding Lady GaGa to the already amazing single Stache is a good move in my opinion. Yet another one on the scoreboard for the mainstream./dance music cross over!

Zedd – Clarity ft. Foxes

I literally just bought this and downloaded it about 5 minutes ago and have to try to pay attention in class while this is just sitting on my computer but on a quick preliminary I can tell you that Clarity, the debut album from Zedd, is absolutely everything I could’ve hoped for. The song from the teaser is Follow You Down and the actual version has vocals from Bright Lights which fit absolutely perfectly. Other notables are a bit of a rework of Shave It and a track featuring vocals from Ellie Goulding which I got to give a quick listen to. The title track featuring Foxes was available for free on iTunes so I included the download for that one but if you want the rest go pirate it yourselves or support the music on iTunes!

UPDATE: Future TNJ team member Tyler Roper brought to my attention that there was an awesome official video for Stache that just got released so I made sure to add it on below. Teamwork makes the dream work right?

Zedd – Clarity (Album Teaser)

If you’re wondering where the future of EDM is heading, you should look no further than Anton Zaslavski aka Zedd. He’s already been making huge waves this whole summer with his beautiful and complex electro house smash hit Spectrum completely taking over the festival circuit and announcing the collaborative track and tour, Poseidon, with America’s leading hitmaker Porter Robinson.

Now he’s come out with the teaser for his full length album Clarity, dropping October 2nd and if that snippet is any indication of what kinda project this is gonna be I couldn’t be more excited. Unlike a sizeable amount of the electronic music artists out today, Zedd’s transcribes his music from a composition on piano, which he’s been classically trained in and it makes all the difference. This album is going to be one hell of a project!
