Huey Mack has had some major success with his remixes (this one holds the record for most views on our blog!) and crossing over to the House Music world definitely shouldn’t hurt that success. “Clarity” is turning into one of the most remixed songs of the past few months and Huey Mack goes in on his remix.
“Before the release of Swedish House Mafia’s “Don’t You Worry Child,” members hyped up the track for its “emotional” qualities and word even spread that it could ‘make grown men cry.’ Well, the original mix of the song has already received a fair bit of airplay in nightclubs and at festivals around the world, but now there’s an official acoustic version that really lets John Martin’s soulful vocal shine through.
The slowed-down vocal is laid over gentle guitar riffs, providing a far different sound than the original that you’ve inevitably heard by now. Axwell told Rolling Stone that “A stripped-down version of the song that captures the essence of the messages… was important for us,” and that they wanted to keep the song’s integrity after hearing the vocal from John Martin in LA.
SHM has also uploaded sheet music for the track to their website, which you can find right here.” – DA.com
Back in 2010, you may have seen Usher’s “DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love” performance on the AMA’s and overlooked the DJ’s in the background as just a random trio of guys pushing buttons. Well it seems as if that relationship has remained strong and those DJ’s have kept us falling in love with them over and over. I have to admit, this is one of my favorite music relationships to sprout. The best R&B/Pop artist over the past 10 years, and one of the best group of DJ’s in the world, coming together to create some amazing shit.
Let’s not forget up-and-comer Alesso, who has smashed onto the scene over the past year and is on an exponential rise to the top. The prodigy teams up with SHM and Usher on the second track below, “Numb”. Usher’s 7th studio album, Looking 4 Myself, releases this Friday!!!
