Anton Igorevich Zaslavski, better known by his stage name Zedd, is a Russian-German record producer, DJ, musician, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter. By 2010 he’d won two Beatport remix contests and soon started drawing rave reviews for his remixes of tracks by the likes of Skrillex, The Black Eyed Peas, Fatboy Slim, and Lady Gaga.
One of his best-known productions is “Stay”, teamed up with Alessia Cara and landed his first #1 at Top 40 Radio in the U.S. Zedd released his debut album Clarity after signing with Interscope Records in 2012 — the same year he found himself featured in the New York Times, who praised him as an EDM prodigy and noted that “his talent is extraordinary.” The albums’ title track “Clarity" shot to No. 2 on Top 40, nabbed a Grammy Award and sold 2.6 million copies. It racked up more than 400 million streams and won the 2014 MTV Clubland Video Music Award.
For "True Colors” in 2015, the album was a resounding success, debuting at No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, No. 1 on the Dance/Electronic Albums chart, and in the Top 10 in eight countries worldwide. True Colors also earned Zedd a 2016 Billboard Music Award for “Best Dance Album.” Its lead single “I Want You to Know” (feat. Selena Gomez) spent four weeks at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart and has been certified Platinum.
