Poll 2023: Zedd

From: Russia (originally)

DJ style: Emotive bangers

Best known for: Dance-pop anthems

Zedd’s been all over the world this year. Anton Zaslavski’s recent Instagram feed features content from performances across the US, Asia, Europe and beyond, and when he wasn’t behind the decks at international fests or Vegas’s Zouk nightclub, where he holds a residency, he was behind the camera, it seems. This summer the German producer appeared in The Muppets Mayhem, a new Disney+ show chronicling the comeback of the famous muppet band as they embarked on their first full-length album together.

Between lending advice to the beloved Janice, Dr. Teeth, Floyd Pepper and Zoot, he still found time to hit the studio in pursuit of his own forthcoming project. In February, the Grammy-nominated artist shared an audio clip with the working title ‘Funky Jam’, a move which had listeners positively frothing over the possibility that his third studio LP would hit before year’s end. Well, presumably The Muppets were quite demanding, for at the time of writing, there’s still no word on an official release date. However, fans who’ve been missing that synth-driven Zedd magic got a little surprise in August when his 2022 summer smash hit ‘Make You Say’ received a pulsing electro-house remix from British producer, Ellis. It will have to be enough to hold us over until Zedd drops that next long-player — and not too much longer, we hope.
