genre: A fusion of Electro, Dubstep, Progressive and Complextro
Anton Zaslavski, known primarily by his stage name Zedd, is a Russian-German electronic music producer and DJ. He primarily produces in the electro house genre, but has branched out, drawing influences from progressive house, dubstep, complextro and classical music. Zaslavski has produced a wide variety of remixes and originals. He first made waves in the scene when he won two different Beatport remix contests; his first original release, “The Anthem”, broke into the Beatport Electro house Top 20. His remix of Skrillex’s “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites” broke into the Beatport Electro House Top Ten charts, coming to rest at number 2. Zedd’s single “Shave It Up” was premiered as a thirty second teaser on Skrillex’s YouTube page, this being Zedd’s first release on OWSLA records. In 2012, Zedd signed with Interscope Records and released his debut single from the label, “Spectrum”, with vocals by Matthew Koma. He then produced the Eva Simons song, “I Don’t Like You”, which was also released on Interscope.
