Dutch DJ/producer Rogerson is back with another remix exclusively for DJcity. This time, it’s a refreshing, funky take on Zedd and Foxes‘ 2012 big room smash “Clarity.” The emotive dance ballad was a triple-platinum-selling hit that reached the top of Billboard’s Dance Music chart and was a top-10 charter on Billboard’s Hot 100.
“For me, Zedd is one of the greatest producers out there,” Rogerson says. “Because of that, it wasn’t easy to create a theme for this remix, as its original is so good already! I like dark deep sounds for my remixes, but this one wouldn’t fit… because of it’s musical key. So I made the choice to create something completely different, and I think it worked out really well!”

The visual shows robot Katy Perry and human Zedd living together as part of an experiment. Perry malfunctions after she develops feelings for Zedd but finds out he doesn’t love her back.

Rising Los Angeles-based producer and singer Alex Rosales has dropped a Latin remix of Zedd, Maren Morris, and Grey‘s smash hit, “The Middle.” The original version peaked at No. 5 on Billboard’s Hot 100, making it Zedd’s highest-charting single as a main artist. It was also one of DJcity’s most-downloaded tracks of February.
Rosales replaces Zedd and Grey’s production with a new instrumental, which is driven by Latin-influenced guitar and drums. He maintains most of Morris’ original vocals throughout while adding his own verse and a catchy hook.
Born in Indiana, Rosales is best known for his remix of Becky G‘s Latin heater “Mayores” featuring Bad Bunny. His latest single, “Bailar Asi,” interpolates the chorus from Mana‘s 1982 classic, “Oye Mi Amor.”

Most pop hits these days are the work of multiple songwriters and producers. In the case of Zedd, Maren Morris, and Grey‘s smash “The Middle,” there are seven credited songwriters and three credited producers. The process took over a year and almost fell apart at one point.
The hard work and patience have paid off, though. “Middle” has amassed hundreds of millions of streams and is currently No. 6 on Billboard’s Hot 100, making it Zedd’s highest-charting single as a main artist.
For the debut episode of its Diary of a Song series, The New York Times “tracked the writing and production of ‘The Middle’ through voice memos, demo versions, text messages, emails, interviews and more provided by those behind the track.”
Nearly half a year after producing Ariana Grande’s “Break Free,” superstar DJ/producer Zedd returns with another EDM-pop crossover. This time around, the Grammy-winning producer has teamed with his rumored girlfriend, Selena Gomez.
“I Want You To Know” is the first single from Zedd’s forthcoming second album, due in Spring 2015. The track also features contribution from OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder.

Last year, Skrillex, A$AP Ferg, and Zedd performed A$AP Rocky’s hit single “Wild for the Night” during the annual “SuperJam” at the Bonnaroo festival. Half a year later, a behind-the-scenes video has been released which shows Skrill and Ferg planning for the event, along with a portion of the performance itself.
The video is part of a seven-episode documentary series about the jam, which also featured Damian Marley, Ms. Lauryn Hill, and Janelle Monae, alongside members of The Doors, Grateful Dead, and Incubus. You can watch all the episodes at AT&T’s U-verse website.
