Get to Know Zedd: The Russian-German DJ Who’s Taking the Music World by Storm
Meet Anton Zaslavski, better known as Zedd, the multi-talented DJ, singer, songwriter, and record producer who’s been making waves in the music industry for years. While he’s best known for his electro house beats, Zedd’s sound has evolved over time, drawing inspiration from classical music, progressive house, and dubstep.
Zedd got his start in the small German town of Kaiserslautern, where he began honing his craft. His stage name is a nod to the first letter of his last name, pronounced in English (not American) as “Zedd.”
In 2012, Zedd released his smash hit “Clarity,” which quickly became a global sensation. The song reached number eight on the Billboard Hot 100 charts and earned Zedd a Grammy Award for Best Dance Recording. He followed up with his debut album, also titled “Clarity,” which featured a collaboration with Hayley Williams on the deluxe edition single “Stay the Night.” With over 6 million followers on Instagram, Zedd’s popularity shows no signs of slowing down.
Zedd’s second album, “True Colors,” dropped in 2015 and featured the lead single “I Want You to Know,” a collaboration with Selena Gomez. He also teamed up with Alessia Cara for “Stay” and Maren Morris for “The Middle.” But it was his collaboration with Ariana Grande on “Break Free” that really took off, landing at number four on the US charts.
Whether you’re a die-hard Zedd fan or just discovering his music for the first time, there’s no denying that this Russian-German DJ is a force to be reckoned with.
