It is rare that you turn on the radio lately and don’t hear this guy’s latest smash “Clarity.” It features vocals from English singer Foxes and is the title track from his debut studio album of the same name. Zedd started with music in his daily routine from early childhood on. Born Anton Zaslavski and raised in Kaiserslautern, Germany by two classically trained musicians, he began playing the piano at the age of four and built up his knowledge of the Classical repertoire throughout his childhood, at times writing a song a day.
His LP Clarity, with 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.
In an interview, Zedd said, “For the past six months, I’ve been working on a light and visual show for my tour. We’ve built tons special content and improved the production day by day, step by step. With the Moment of Clarity World Tour, I want to capture this moment and present it to my fans around the world!”
