German producer, DJ and EDM impresario, ZEDD’s debut album, has garnered massive global attention, becoming the top track on Soundcloud within 5 hours of being posted and instantly hitting #1 on The Hype Machine swiftly followed by the worldwide top spot on Beatport.
Drawing from a diverse musical background spanning from classical to post-hardcore/metal to electro house, Zedd has made waves with a series of well-received remixes of tracks by The Black Eyed Peas, Fatboy Slim, Lady Gaga and Skrillex (who went on to release 3 singles on his OWSLA imprint). Last year, his remixes of Gaga’s “Born This Way” and “Marry the Night” appeared on the deluxe edition of the superstar’s latest album Born This Way. In addition to his reworkings of others’ songs, Zedd has had other electro heavyweights take their turn at his tracks, including the recent remix of “Shave It” by EDM legend Kaskade.
With True Colors’ lead single “I Want You to Know” (feat. Selena Gomez) having spent four weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart, the follow-up to Zedd’s 2012 debut Clarity brings its central theme to life by connecting each song on the album with a specific color. “I hear color in all the music I write, and for this album I wanted to really focus in on that concept and take it to a new level,” says Zedd.
Zedd first made waves with a series of remixes of tracks by Skrillex, The Black Eyed Peas, Fatboy Slim, and Lady Gaga. He has headlined at numerous festivals including Coachella, Outside Lands, Bonnaroo, Ultra, Electric Daisy Carnival, Nocturnal, Tomorrowland, Lollapalooza, Electric Zoo, and many more.
