Zedd and Foxes smash hit ‘Clarity’ has seen its fair share of remixes, acoustic renditions and more in the months since its release. Last night on Jimmy Fallon, house band The Roots and ?uestlove laid out a drum-laden, acoustic version alongside Zedd and Foxes. The real treat came when Zedd hopped behind the decks and launched into his electro rendition of The Legend of Zelda theme song, which likely came as a surprise to those unfamiliar with the style that launched his career pre-Clarity.Posted by
LA-based producer David Dann takes on Foxes’ “Youth” for his latest remix.

Enjoy the enchanting voice of Foxes and the dance floor energy of David Dann and claim this remix of “Youth” for yourself today.
Last week Zedd captivated audiences with his acoustic performance of “Clarity” alongside Foxes and Alvin Risk on the David Letterman Show.

Zedd, who only appears occasionally throughout the video, allows the visuals and Foxes to charm watchers, while his precise production tickles our ears.Posted by

Another day, another milestone for Zedd who, alongisde vocalist Foxes, performed their hit “Clarity” on David Letterman last night. Zedd once again proves that he is more than just a DJ — it’s refreshing to see an electronic music artist transcend the genre with his art and abilities. Check out Alvin Risk performing back up vocals!Posted by
A scant eight days after Zedd released the song’s acapella to the public, Aylen has given “Clarity” the remix treatment. The prolific New Jersey producer checked in from his tour with 3LAU to tell Dancing Astronaut he hoped his remix would complement Foxes’ “amazing” singing. He’s succeeded there; the track’s plucky introduction gives way to an upbeat lovestep beat and pleasant synth progressions that leave the limelight for the vocals. We’ve seen Aylen opt for unbridled electro house before, so his reinterpretation of this melodic anthem represents some well-advised restraint on his part. Head to Aylen’s Facebook for the free download.
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.
