You don’t need RapGenius annotations for this one, folks. Exhuming an Obama-approved Young Hov’ relic, Brillz appropriately brushes the the dust off and breathes new life into Timbaland’s tour de force with new age twonk. Fresh off his latest LP, Brillz teams up with the legendary Z Trip for the prized rework. Quick facts on Z Trip: DJ Hero avatar, only producer to have an approved Nirvana remix (“Lounge Act”), has performed in front of 450,000 people, and voted America’s Best DJ by DJ Times (2009). Non-ironically, their “Dirt Off Your Shoulder” remix is premiering with Jay-Z’s own blog, Life + Times, as part of Imanos’s Trap Nation mixtape. Download the mix after the break.
After a wildly successful remix contest and remix EP for Zedd’s ”Spectrum,” it seemed only natural that Clarity‘s eponymous single should receive the same treatment. While the remixes started back in November with Aylen’s lovestep rework, it was only last week that Zedd unveiled the sumptuous roster of producers for the official “Clarity” remix package.
With renditions from Tiësto, Style of Eye, Brillz, and an orchestral edit from Zedd himself, the “Clarity” remix package is just as daunting as its counterpart’s previous package. Curious to see whose stole the spotlight? Click past the break to read our review.
Zedd unveils official Brillz and Torro Torro remixes of ‘Clarity’ alongside Tiësto, Felix Cartal, and Funkagenda renditions
After Zedd released the “Clarity” acapella as a free download, it was only a matter of time before the flood gates opened on the full stream of remixes. While yesterday Zedd revealed Tiësto’s official “Clarity” remix, today he’s shown the spotlight on two comparatively diverse remixes. The first is an enveloping trap remix by LA’s Brillz, for which Zedd enthusiastically praised on Twitter as “One of my favorite remixes anyone’s ever done for me!” The second is a thumping electro house remix from Canada’s Torro Torro, which Zedd has been playing out in his sets.
Though overshadowed by yesterday’s hype around Tiësto’s rendition, Felix Cartal also previewed his progressive house rework of “Clarity,” and it’s shaping up to be quite a release. Rounding out the official remix series will be a final, yet-to-be-previewed edition from Funkagenda. All five remixes are due out on February 12th, as part of the official “Clarity” remix package on Interscope Records.
