Zedd Remixes John Summit’s “Where You Are”
Zedd has taken John Summit’s “Where You Are” featuring Hayla to new heights, adding a uplifting remix that’s sure to light up any set. You can listen to the coveted remix now across all platforms.
Tip #1: Sketch out an arrangement before you start making the remix. This will help you focus your production and avoid getting stuck in a loop.
Having been playing piano since age four and drumming in a metal band before that, Anton Zaslavki better known by his stage name Zedd isn’t your typical EDM DJ. He’s a multi-platinum artist, has a grammy win under his belt with the song “Clarity,” and is a true musician as opposed to the stereotypical notion that EDM artists push buttons.
Despite this, his debut album Clarity veers off from its roots to mediocre effect. Songs like “Codec” take more than a page out of deadmau5’s book with the standard 4-on-the-floor beat and chopped vocal samples.
Thankfully, Zedd’s live performances are anything but mediocre. At the 8,500-capacity Bill Graham Auditorium, Zedd was able to rile up a crowd that was wearing his merch as if it were their first born child. The crowd was just as excited to hear Troye Sivan’s lyrics of hope, sadness, and temporary danger as they were for the Daft Punk-inspired thumping house.
Gorgon City is the duo of North London producers Kye Gibbon and Matt Robson-Scott who formed in early 2012, combining their separate production monikers Foamo and Rack N Ruin. The pair’s debut release that February — the Crypt EP—succeeded in attracting attention from Black Butter, which gave them their big break.
The label’s January 2014 single “Ready for Your Love,” featuring vocals from MNEK, topped the U.K. Top Five and helped establish the duo as a major force in dance music.
The duo has since released two full-length albums, including Sirens (2014) and Kingdom (2015), as well as numerous EPs and singles. They continue to score hits on the charts as well as in clubs, and are currently touring their fourth full-length album, Salvation. In the studio, Gorgon City maintains separation between bass production and elements like melody and lyrics when working with vocalists. This allows them to give collaborators freedom and confidence while they work on the more electronic parts of a track.
Denver-based multifaceted musician GRiZ is funkin’ up dance floors worldwide with his future funk sound, combining electronic music with fiery live saxophone and sweeping electro-soul. His live shows are safe spaces for conscious fans to express themselves and celebrate their differences, with no room for oppression or bigotry.
Having just debuted the track at his surprise B2B with Subtronics at EDC Las Vegas and in his own sets, GRiZ has released the official remix of John Summit’s pristine house hit, Where You Are featuring Hayla. While retaining most of the euphoria and complimenting uplifting melodies, GRiZ’s remix adds his signature melodic dubstep flavor, turning the track into an anthemic festival smash.
Having just released his sixth studio album, Ride Waves, which saw the producer explore new musical territory with the likes of Wiz Khalifa, Snoop Dogg, Matisyahu and Grammy Nominated singer DRAM, GRiZ is ready to take it to the next level with another massive release.
