Zedd‘s ‘Clarity’ was easily one of the biggest reasons that EDM took over the mainstream this past year, and remixes have come almost as frequently as festival plays. More rare is a remix that does Foxes’ soaring vocals justice. However, this ambient trap remix by young producer Carter Juncal is able to do just that. Juncal was playing around with the a cappella vocal sample and noticed that it worked well with one of his instrumentals, and the rest is history. The atmospheric backdrop and intricate percussion patterns fit as if this was an original track, and in my opinion, it may top the original (keep in mind that I’m not a fan of electro-house). Check out ‘Clarity’ below, and head to Juncal’s Soundcloud for other chilled-out tracks, all free to download.
Daft Punk’s Alive 2007 introduced me to the world of electronic music, and ever since, it’s been a huge part of my life. I’m currently a philosophy student at UCSB, but music and shows are my passion. Thanks to EJ, I hope to share the magic of music with anyone interested.
