While "The Middle" and "Happy Now" did better on the commercial front, it's hard to think of another piece that is more characteristic of Zedd than the title track of his first album, "Clarity". a track damn close to perfection, and this quality is supported by the endless joy that always fills a room when it is played, even six years later.
That said, Virtual Riot has just released a new remix of the title that breathes new life into the classic. It's a "sad" remix, as it is written on SoundCloud, which combines a softer melodic garage with a shorter section of the dubstep at the end.
This is an older remix, apparently having accumulated dust on Riot's hard drive for a while. He did not want to leave fans without a free download for Christmas, so he blessed us with this beautiful piece of music.
Ignoring the clearly misguided and vitriolic comments on SoundCloud, we are absolutely charmed by Virtual Riot's interpretation of "Clarity", perfect for this post-Christmas dinner the next morning. Discover it below and download it directly from SoundCloud if you dig it.
