Anton Zaslavski aka "Zedd", the German producer who became an international star in 2013 thanks to his Clarity album which won a grammy for the album's lead single "Clarity" featuring Foxes. He set out on a year long Clarity Tour in support of the album and brought out a show no one would forget. Anyone who was lucky enough to catch a date of the tour was treated to a custom light and laser production setup that could light up a stadium, yet was brought to venues that were much smaller for an epic experience.
This 30 minute long documentary really captures the journey, from Zedd personally setting up the production on the first night to discussing speaking with Skrillex online for the first time to reaching out to Hayley Williams and the entire release around ’Stay The Night’ and much much more. This really lets you see a more personal side of Zedd showing you not only what nice of a guy he is, but also how hands on he is with the entire business of him as an artist which is rare to see.
To see Zedd experience such a level of success is really incredible making us think back to when Thissongissick actually brought out Zedd for one of his first shows in the US ever in Boulder, CO at the even more intimate Fox Theatre in 2011.
From aspiring New York City DJs to a main stage performance at Ultra Music Festival before venturing on their 2nd nationwide #Selfie tour, the producer duo known simply as The Chainsmokers hit us with yet another amazing remix. Their love of UK singer / songerwriter Foxes (lead vocalist on last years global anthem "Clarity" by Zedd amongst many other releases) has lead the guys to putting a dangeriously infectious touch to her latest hit single "Holding On To Heaven". Using Foxes impactful vocals to great effect, they've transformed the original into a progressive house turnup itching to be flexed from the clubs to festival life. Brace yourself for some strong feels and listen to this exclusive premiere below. Enjoy

Zedd performs Live Piano Version of “Clarity” ft. Foxes and Alvin Risk LIVE on David Letterman Late Night : 1st EDM Artist Appearance EverPosted in Bangin, Mix / Playlist, Video by nick | Tags: Alvin Risk, David Letterman, Electro House, Foxes, Late Night, Late Night with David Letterman, Piano, TV, Zedd
Late Night with David Letterman is a very popular late night show in America which gets broadcasted nationally on CBS. The show has been the national debut of countless rising musical acts, which in the past have always been pop, rock, indie, but never an electronic producer. Who better then Zedd to break the pattern and be the first EDM act to appear on the show, and delivering a live piano rendtion of “Clartiy” off his debut album with the same name. Accompanying him is vocalist Foxes, and even Alvin Risk slips in for a cameo adding some additional vocals. He has stated that he always starts his production by first creating the piano line, so this transition makes complete sense. He really kills it, and Foxes does a great job as well. I hope this is the start of more electronic acts making their national debut on David Letterman. Enjoy!
