Zedd – Beautiful Now (Charlie Darker Remix)
Here’s a track for any former Zedd fans who have grown disillusioned with his more melodic music in recent times: Charlie Darker has popped the bubble of the German producer’s pop house track “Beautiful Now (feat. Jon Bellion)” with a gritty electro house treatment.
The remix, which will be officially released on July 10 via Interscope, disrupts the uplifting vocals and ethereal instrumentation of Zedd’s original with irreverent drops. Charlie Darker’s driving rhythms pump Zedd’s hit full of adrenaline, and his spacious, distorted bass synthesis is in league with the “vomit-step” proffered by fellow Canadian producer Snails. Adding credence to his titular claims, Charlie Darker proves that he can make even the most unlikely song truly dark.
