When Zedd, Maren Morris and Grey‘s “The Middle” came out at the beginning of the year, it quickly garnered millions of plays and views across platforms. The sugar-sweet dance/pop original featured Morris’ charming vocals over catchy production from Zedd and Grey, making for a surefire hit for all three artists.
Over the months since its release, countless remixes have surfaced on SoundCloud — but perhaps none as heavy as this latest one from drummer Ryan Browne. Browne has been making a name for himself by doing percussion-infused takes on songs like Krewella‘s classic “Alive” and Alison Wonderland‘s “Messiah.” With accompanying videos to demonstrate the hard work that goes into these remixes, Browne’s multi-instrumental skills shine. His remix of “The Middle” is backed by hefty guitar riffs and bass and is led by a fast-paced drum & bass rhythm. He’s taken the tidy pop elements of the original and worked them into a more rugged, passion-packed remix.
“God’s Plan” rules the world. Drake’s dominant single is #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 singles chart for an eighth straight week, and its ubiquity extends well beyond the United States. Although the song hasn’t caught on in Asia or Africa and is only a minor hit in Latin America, it’s the most popular track globally … More »

The Grammys are this weekend — Sunday at 7:30PM EST on your local CBS affiliate, to be exact — and as always, we’re (almost certainly naïvely) hoping they won’t suck this time. They probably will; they always do. Yet thanks to a somewhat promising slate of nominees in the major categories, a similarly half-decent … More »
After a 2017 led by the smash success of his double-platinum, Alessia Cara-assisted single, “Stay,” 2018 holds high expectations for Zedd. “Stay” held a consecutive six-week residency at the #1 spot on Top 40 radio in the US, and “The Middle” looks primed to be another contender for the top of the charts.
The track also sees Zedd reprise his collaborative efforts with Grey, the electronic duo memorable for their earlier collaborative work with Zedd on “Starving.” In additon, Grammy Award winning country music singer Maren Morris supplies vocals.
With each successive “Z” stamped single released, Zedd further solidifies his stature as one of the biggest stars in popular music. Morris’ vocal contribution serves as the track’s backbone, complemented by a subtle clock ticking that establishes the underlying beat line while keeping rhythm, percussive elements that aid the song’s eventual ascension, and the metallic synth work that have become characteristic of a Zedd single.
A release situated directly within Zedd’s electro-pop wheelhouse, “The Middle” signifies that Zedd long ago hit his stride in the studio, rendering each ensuing release one that hits just the right sonic sweet spot.
