Anton Zaslavski is a 25 year old electronic house producer out of Kaiserslautern, Germany. Currently one of the biggest names in EDM, Zedd has been absolutely dominating the scene as his singles Spectrum and Alive (Zedd Remix), can be found playing on thousands of radio stations and in countless DJ sets around the world. Zedd has been hosted on dozens of live TV shows. Earlier this year, he even performed a live piano version on the Letterman show of his most appreciated song, Clarity. The young producer has swept the nation by storm and continues to sell out every venue he stops at on his most recent tour, the Age of Clarity Tour.
Zedd’s live performances combine a variety of electronic music, mixing together upbeat-euphoric house beats, along with bass heavy festival trap, and lyrical mash-ups from countless big name artists. Backed by insanely high definition visuals and crazy lasers, this DJ brings an immense amount of energy to each set he plays, keeping the crowd on the edge of their feet at all times. His single, Clarity, can easily be defined as one of, if not the most successful EDM track of 2013. The amount of remixes and mashes taken from this song alone, goes to show what a talented producer this man truly is. Year after year, Zedd continues to climb the chart of top producers and DJs. With each new release, he only seems to exponentially rise in popularity. Zedd is single handedly responsible for introducing Electronic Dance Music to the general public and his sounds continue to appeal to all age groups across the board.
Zedd has performed at festivals and venues all around the world, dominating the stage at places such as Tomorrowland, Ultra, and Electric Daisy Carnival. No huge name electronic festival is complete without the addition of Zedd to the lineup. Unlike many other artists, Zedd is quite social media friendly, constantly posting hilarious tweets, pictures, and playfully interacting with his other fellow DJs and producers. At Deadmau5’s Ultra set this past summer, Zedd foolishly pranced around stage in nothing more than a pair of boxer briefs! This artist has such a positive personality and continues to spread his love through his music to listeners across the globe. The lyrics of many of these songs are some of the catchiest and most heartfelt in music. It is always reassuring to see an artist as big as Zedd never leave a show without giving a truly, meaningful thank you at the end of his set to all of his fans. Zedd has enormous love and passion for what he does and it is insanely exciting to see what 2014 holds in store for this young German.
