Zedd started with music in his daily routine from early childhood on. Born Anton Zaslavski, Zedd was raised in Kaiserslautern, Germany
by two classically trained musicians, he began playing the piano at the age of four and built up his knowledge of the Classical repertoire throughout
his childhood, at times writing a song a day. At age twelve, Anton learned to play the drums and, soon after he began performing with the
post-hardcore/metal trio Dioramic. As a preteen he was already composing and producing numerous rock songs in his band's own studio. As the
aughts progressed, Anton’s awareness of other genres widened, and in 2009 his interest in producing electronic music was piqued after hearing the
French electronic duo Justice. With his gift for musicality and background in instrumentation, composition and production, the move into the realm of
electronic dance music was seamless.
2009 proved to be a watershed year for Zedd. It was during this year that he began producing electronic music, and within an incredibly short period
of time amassed widespread critical and audience acclaim. Within a few months of beginning his production work, Zedd won two Beatport remix contests,
the "Armand Van Helden / Strictly Rhythm Remix Contest" and the "Fatboy Slim / Skint Remix Contest". These critical wins gave the budding artists the
notoriety and clout to catch the interest of Skrillex who essentially found him on the net and signed him to his new OWSLA label. He caught the ear of
Interscope A R Dave Rene and Interscope Geffen A M Chairman Jimmy Iovine and successfully released several official remixes for powerhouse artists
such as Lady Gaga, Black Eyed Peas, P. Diddy, Swedish House Mafia and Skrillex on labels including mau5trap, Interscope, and EMI.
In the realm of his original compositions, Zedd’s hit singles 'Shave It' and 'Slam The Door' (out through OWLSA) both held the
top spot on Beatport's charts for multiple weeks at a time. In the same year, his remix of Lady Gaga’s “Marry the Night” appeared on the
deluxe edition of the superstar’s latest album Born This Way and his remix of “Born This Way” appeared on Born This Way: The Remix. In addition
to his own compositions and reworkings of others’ songs, Zedd has had other electro heavyweights take their turn at his tracks, including Armin Van
Buuren, Kaskade, Knife Party and more.
Zedd’s stellar development is undoubtedly linked to his unique and highly recognizable style of composition. It stands out in a crowded field as
meticulously detailed and carefully produced, very playful and at the same time remarkably catchy despite the complex musicality drafting it up.
Drawing from his diverse musical background spanning from classical to post-hardcore/metal to electro house Zedd’s music not only draws from
uncommon sources but also has the ability to appeal to an audience outside the realm EDM.
Zedd signed with Interscope records in 2012 and released his debut LP Clarityin October to much critical acclaim. The album’s first single,
“Spectrum,” featuring singer/songwriter Matthew Koma, garnered massive global attention climbing into the the Top 10 on the iTunes dance chart and
holding on to the #1 spot on Beatport Worldwide for almost three weeks. The track then soared to #1 on the Billboard Dance Club Song chart and was
ultimately named their Dance Club Song of the year as well as iTunes “Breakthrough Album of the Year (Dance) for 2012.
In addition to racking up original production credits for artists including Eva Simons’ “I Don’t Like You” and Justin Bieber’s “Beauty And
A Beat,” Rolling Stone named Zedd an “Artist to Watch” for 2012, and more recently, MTV deemed him an “Artist to Watch” for 2013. Zedd has
performed at major festivals, including Ultra, Electric Daisy Carnival, and Nocturnal and in 2012, he performed at Coachella, Lollapalooza, Hard
Summer in Los Angeles, and Electric Zoo in New York. Zedd made his national television debut on The Late Show with David Letterman in October where he
turned his signature style upside down performing a stripped down version of his new single “Clarity” -showcasing his classical training by
playing piano alongside a string quartet and vox from Foxes. The performance is a prime example of Zedd's true musicianship beyond the realm of
EDM. Zedd was also chosen to be the only opening act for the Asian leg of Lady Gaga's world stadium-tour "The Born This Was Ball”.
A musical prodigy from the start, Zedd is already a powerhouse beyond the EDM realm. His originality and momentum will unquestionably propel him into
the ranks of superstars.
