Even though Zedd’s “Clarity” was released back in 2012, the song is still making headlines 5 years later. During a recent episode of America’s Got Talent, the 9-year-old Angelica Hale decided to take on Zedd and Foxes’ emotional, yet powerful single “Clarity.” Despite her young age, Angelica Hale’s rendition of “Clarity” was flawless.

Zedd: “There is no good reason not to speak up” on the nation’s political climate

This post was originally published on this site

In the spotlight now perhaps more than ever before as he prepares to embark on a fifteen-date North American tour with his second double-platinum certification in his back pocket, Zedd isn’t shying from the limelight to voice his beliefs confidently and without reservation as millions watch and listen.

The Russian-German producer has been forthright about his feelings on political motion in the country, organizing “Welcome,” a benefit concert for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) hosted in April. Featuring performances from a variety of artists ranging from Skrillex to Incubus, the event was a direct response to President Trump’s attempted travel ban. The ban struck particularly close to home for Zedd, the producer having stated on multiple occasions that his ability to stay in the US is enabled solely by his possession of a visa.

“No matter how big the scandal is, no matter how insane a [Trump] tweet is, it just keeps going. You feel powerless, and that’s terrible to me,” Zedd remarked. Zedd has maintained an assertive, and at some times even surprising transparency of his political stance, consistently arising as one of the most politically outspoken producers in the music industry. “They [other DJs/producers] don’t want to lose fans” Zedd states, conscious that his tendency to speak out sets him apart from many figures in the music industry, rather than aligning him with them. “I understand where they are coming from, but I disagree with that being a good reason not to speak up.” Zedd has doubled as a major hit engineering entity and political rights activist for quite some time, frequently voicing concerns via his Twitter account.

When Career Artists Score A Freak Pop Hit

One-hit wonders are a common phenomenon in the music business, and most of them have a fan base that insists their other songs are just as good. It’s rarer, though, to see a well established band break through with a surprise pop hit more than a decade into its career, “She Don’t Use Jelly” style. More »

Zedd’s breakthrough hit, “Clarity,” remains just as widely acclaimed as his more recent double-platinum release, “Stay,” which recently earned Zedd his second double platinum certification.

The first single of his that would go double platinum, “Clarity” carved out its place on the charts, quickly becoming a radio favorite upon its release. A beloved staple of Zedd’s musical library, “Clarity” remains one of Zedd’s most highly celebrated releases, and as in all things timeless in production, continues to be not just merely relevant, but popular among dance music fans years later.

The song’s classical status is further cemented by its appearance in the quarter finals of 2017’s America’s Got Talent. 9-year-old Angelica Hale covered the smash single, her vocals doing the high pitched song justice, soaring to hit the tracks’s defining soprano notes in all the right places. As those who love the song can testify, much of the song’s emotional power is engrained in the featured singer, Foxes’, impassioned vocal delivery. Hale’s delivery is commensurately poignant, making for a stunning overall cover.

The EDM Community Reacts and Condemns The Domestic Terror Attacks In Virginia

The dance music community is a place of acceptance and love. The community and industry were built on those values. As we see our nation more divided than ever over both extremist political views and racism, it is important we band together.

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory Vol. 1

This post was originally published on this site

Dexter’s Beat Laboratory is a weekly collection of songs from DA music editor and staff writer Robyn Dexter. With a taste that can only be described as eclectic — to say nothing of a name that lends itself to punnery — DA is happy to present a selection of tracks personally curated by Dexter for your listening pleasure.


I’ll start Volume 1 with a confession: I didn’t know the original version of this song when I heard this edit. Laszlo, an 18-year-old up-and-comer from The Netherlands, has continuously impressed with releases both on Monstercat and independently. He usually produces epic electro house tracks, so this smooth, sexy Post Malone rework was a bit unexpected. Lazslo toys with the vocals layered over slick synths and a melody that glides the listener effortlessly through the track. It’s completely refreshing, and I haven’t been able to stop listening to it since it came out on June 27.

(Note: I did finally go out and listen to the original. I much prefer Laszlo’s version).


Gareth Emery and Christina Novelli‘s “Concrete Angel‘ is an iconic example of the emotional beauty that permeates trance music. Celebrating the song’s 5-year anniversary, Emery released a set of remixes to “Concrete Angel” and among them was this perfect trance rework of the original track, masterfully done by ReOrder. It packs a harder punch than the original, but still maintains the initial integrity of the track. ReOrder’s trance beats are slightly more aggressive than Emery’s, but his builds are beautiful and soulful.


Drum & bass has a special place in my heart. Since Pendulum established my love of electronic music in 2010, I’ve always gone back to the genre-well in search of tracks that give me the same euphoric feeling songs like “Witchcraft” and “Watercolour” did when I heard them for the first time. When I first heard T & Sugah’s “Cast Away” three years ago, I got that same feeling. After following the Dutch duo’s music and loving everything they released, seeing a new track of theirs pop up was a thrill. “Sleepless” showcases the duo’s mastery of drum & bass with a swift beat that intensifies MVE’s vocals in the best way.


While browsing the latest content on SoundCloud’s feed, something unexpected cropped up: a new track from KDrew. KDrew has always made consistently solid music (c’mon, who doesn’t love “Last Train to Paradise” and “Summer Ashes“?) so it was interesting to see what his latest original track was like, especially since he hasn’t released new music in a while. With fun pitched vocals and a rushing trap-infused beat, “Back To You” marks KDrew’s triumphant return to the dance music world.


Since its release earlier this year, Zedd and Alessia Cara‘s hit “Stay” has, unsurprisingly, gotten a whole variety of remixes. Among these is a refreshing remix from producer Aylen. In a world where so many remixes sound the same, Aylen’s funky take on the track is catchy and new. He takes an otherwise mainstream-sounding track and pumps it up with a heightened tempo. Flawless harmonies line the bridge of the song, building up to a driving drop that begs shufflers to hit the dance floor and bust out their moves.
