Zedd (not to be confused with equally awesome Zeds Dead) is a German producer who has had an astonishing rise to acclaim in an unbelievably short career as a DJ. He has been involved in music since childhood, playing the piano and later the drums, but he has only been producing electronic music for TWO YEARS!
His meteoric rise can be accredited to winning some big remix competitions on Beatport. He stormed onto the scene in the Arman Van Heldens ‘Strictly Rhythm’ comp which he went on to win with this juicy remix ‘Witch Doktor‘. Quickly followed up with a second Beatport contest win with his Fatboy Slim remix ‘Weapon Of Choice’ It has dancefloor driving rhythm that just gets you moving and its success has made it pretty clear the young man was a natural born producer.
These wins got some big attention from some of the biggest labels including Mau5trap, Interscope, and Atlantic Records which earned him some cooperation with big artists like Lady Gaga, P. Diddy, Skrillex, Fatboy Slim, Armand Van Helden.
His latest release is of one of the most remixed songs of the summer ‘Save the World Tonight’ but this one it is by far my favorite. He had me hooked with the crunchy rolling DadaLifish synth but stole my heart by sampling the legendary drop from ‘Warp’ (minus the woop woop of course)
The charming young man has a unique sound that’s catapulted him into the spotlight and I look forward to seeing him around for years to come.
