Biografie

Born Anton Zaslavski, Zedd basically didn’t have much of a choice when he was born. With two classically trained musicians as parents, this DJ was bound for musical undertakings. He was just four when he got behind the piano, a skill still very present in his music today. It became clear that the young Anton had a talent for music when after just a few years he was able to write almost a song per day. At the age of twelve, the teenager probably thought the piano wasn’t cool anymore and learned to play the drums, also not a bad skill. Throughout his teens his focus was on composing rock, however in 2009, at the age of 20, it was then that Anton heard the French electronic duo Justice. Where most DJs need time to develop their skills, Anton pretty much just needed a second and ‘Zedd’ was there. That same year he won two Beatport remix contests, having to remix songs by Armand van Helden and Fatboy Slim. Shortly after, none other than Skrillex found Zedd on the net and signed him to his new OWSLA label. Thereafter it has been a rollercoaster ride for the DJ, a ride that has three screwdrivers, six loopings and about three drops in it. He has released several official remixes for artists such as Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, Black Eyed Peas, P. Diddy and Swedish House Mafia. His first taste of success regarding his own productions was when he released 'Spectrum', the track reached international success in countries such as The Netherlands, Germany, Australia and Japan. But it was when he released ‘Clarity’ ft. UK singer Foxes that the bomb exploded. The track meant global success, and worldwide performances. He’s cheered on the crowds at festivals such as Ultra, Electric Daisy Carnival, Coachella and Lollapalooza. He of course is no stranger to clubs as well, having performed at EDM capital #1 Las Vegas, Marquee and capital #2, Ibiza, Pacha. The rollercoaster ride of this Beethoven of EDM seems like it’ll keep going for a while.
