Five-time Grammy nominee Zedd needs little introduction. No stranger to dazzling arenas filled to the doors with fans, he’s remixed everyone from Skrillex to Selena Gomez, produced tracks for Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, and Maren Morris, and crowned festival bills all over the globe. 

Zedd is known across the realms of electro-house, pop, and EDM, with the euphoric builds, glitchy snatches and synthy drops of his tracks mirroring the sort of energy you’ll find in his crowd-pleasing sets. His DJing has been given a regular workout in his adopted hometown of Las Vegas, and he recently announced a glittering new residency at Zouk nightclub. 

Production-wise, although it’s been a short while since the Russian-German artist delivered his last album (‘True Colours’ in 2015), Zedd has kept hungry fans satisfied with a string of catchy singles and vocalist collabs. In 2020, he released ‘Funny’ with Jasmine Thomson and ‘Inside Out’ with Griff, and recently surprised us all by collabing with Valorant videogame to create an EDM-inspired bundle of in-game weapon skins.
