Decadence Artists Spotlight: Zedd Possesses Musical Capability Beyond EDM

Describing Zedd and what makes him totally different in the EDM world is incredibly hard. After all, he does produce electronic music, but Zedd says himself that he does not consider himself an EDM artists. He is electro-based, but he says he really emphasizes great melodies in his albums instead of making people always want to jump. With a nice hint of pop and house, Zedd has placed himself easily on the cusp.  

Humbled beginnings, Zedd signed onto his first record label, Lifeforce Records in 2002. Zedd says his discovery was all due to Skrillex. Zedd sent Skrillex a remix of “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites.” Skrillex replied to his message asking for the full song so he could play it tonight. Needless to say Zedd was discovered, and Skrillex became his mentor.

In 2012, Zedd signed on with Interscope Records. Zedd then produced his debut album, “Clarity,”  featuring the title track with Foxes that went on to claim Best Dance Recording at the Grammy’s.
