Zola Jesus releases atmospheric remix of Zedd’s ‘Middle’ featuring Maren MorrisZola Jesus Zedd The Middle

Zola Jesus, who also goes by Yung Zeej, Lil’ Zoji, and Baba Yaga Balladeer, has released a celestial, slowed-down remix to Zedd‘s #5 Billboard chart-topper, “Middle,” featuring Maren Morris. From the original’s 107 bpm, the remake slows everything down to around a melting 85 bpm. The vocals are doused in reverb while melodic bass and deep percussion lay the foundation, creating a zero gravity atmosphere. Strings are introduced at the chorus, evoking cinematic sensations.

On Soundcloud, she writes “i’m losing my mind, just a little.” At speeds that slow, there’s time to take in each and every detail from the static noise to the purposefully-placed acapella anomalies. The entire song carries a beautifully tortured sentiment through its emotive harmonies and longing delicacy.  Fingers crossed Zedd approves this as an official remix.
