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.
He recently signed to Interscope records and is readying a debut LP on the label for Fall 2012. The album's first single, "Spectrum," featuring Matthew Koma, has garnered massive global attention, climbing into the Top 10 of iTunes dance charts and holding the number one spot on Beatport Worldwide for almost three weeks. Zedd has also racked up several massive original production credits including Eva Simons' "I Don't Like You" and Justin Bieber's "Beauty And A Beat." A Rolling Stone "Artist to Watch" for 2012, Zedd has appeared at major festivals, including Ultra, Electric Daisy Carnival, and Nocturnal. In 2012, he performed at Coachella and is confirmed to appear at Lollapalooza, Hard Summer in Los Angeles, and Electric Zoo in New York. Zedd was also chosen to be the only opening act for the Asian leg of Lady Gaga's world stadiumtour "The Born This Was Ball". In June he returned to the U.S. for a series of headlining shows, including several appearances at Marquee in Las Vegas.
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.
