If there is one thing you can say about most of 2012 and 2013 so far, it’s that Electronic Dance Music has taken the world by storm. It’s no longer only being played at just raves…it’s being played EVERYWHERE. In the midst of all this trend, I came across the fantastic artist Zedd. And when I say artist I actually mean producer who you might know as Anton Zaslavaski.
One of the wonderful things about Zedd’s production is that, while I don’t think I’ve ever heard him actually speak, he’s managed to put out some of the most heartfelt songs out right now; and yet his fast-paced beat driven melodies stay true to EDM form. Like one of my favorites, Clarity featuring Foxes.

As fresh as his music is you may be surprised to find out that he has done a great deal of behind-the-scenes work with musicians like Lady Gaga and Skrillex. And you know that Justin Bieber song, Beauty and a Beat, that you for some reason just can’t get out of your head? Yeah, he was behind that smash hit by producing the track.

Zedd has found the happy medium in the Electronic Dance Music world. Not only do you get that loaded bass that you crave from dance music but also a song with heart.
Check out Zedd’s latest album, Clarity, which features even more fantastic (and more than likely hit singles) like Hourglass.
