The title track off Zedd’s debut album is a microcosm of the perfect storm of qualities that made Clarity so memorable. At 23, the German wunderkind has already mastered the delicate balancing act between technicality and musicality in his production, infusing “Clarity” with both the structural handicraft to move dance floors and the melodic sensibility to induce chills. Foxes’ gorgeous vocals are as accessible as they are emotive, soaring over the more hackneyed lyrics of Zedd’s proglectro contemporaries. About the only thing this track was missing was a DJ-friendly extended mix. Expect to hear plenty more of this track now, and head to Beatport to grab your copy today.

A far cry away from American dancefloors is a very healthy London house scene, fostered by the good people over at RinseFM, a station that started as pirate radio back in 1994 before earning their rights to be a community FM broadcast 16 years later. Rinse resident Kismet’s podcast is similarly rooted in the London underground and this 2-hour mix from Saturday night was a 2-hour long exercise in jungle, grime and dub. It’s a steady wave of gripping club cuts including Ferrer and Hommen’s “No Difference.” One that weaves and rolls through an after hours collection of UK’s growing deep house scene. Ultimately begging the question; “When the last time you heard it like this?”
