Zedd has been one of the biggest artists of modern times.
From a massive pop presence to his Las Vegas residency, Zedd aka Anton Zaslavski has got it all.
He has teamed up with the likes of Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber, etc. over his long and colorful career. Pumping out one hit after another is a hard task for any artist. However, Zedd does it with ease and grace.
Lockdown has been a period of exploration and exploring previously released music has a certain level of nostalgia attached to it. Here are ten Zedd records that set the tone for years to come.
Zedd & Kehlani – Good Thing
This loner anthem made by Zedd and Kehlani made quite the waves in the pop scene but especially in young gaming communities. The amount of detail put into this record is astronomical. From the production to Kehlani’s vocals and the music video, everything fits like a piece of the puzzle.
Zedd, Ke$ha – True colors
Zedd moved away from his traditional dance genre for an emotionally moving record. This record came out when Ke$ha was engaged in a lawsuit versus her longtime producer/business partner Dr. Luke.
Zedd ft. Selena Gomez – I Want You to Know
Zedd has had many big-name celebrities in his collaboration list. This one is a blend of electro and pop with a touch of complextro and is one of the first dance records that Selena was featured in. One republic’s Ryan Tedder helped with the process of songwriting for this pop/electro gem.
Zedd ft. Hayley Williams – Stay the Night
Zedd’s collaboration with Paramore’s lead Hayley Williams really sealed the deal for Zedd’s position in the pop/dance industry. This confirmed Zedd’s prowess as a professional musician after his big success “Clarity”
Zedd – The Legend of Zelda
Zedd was a rising star in the community back in 2011 and then came a surprising 8-bit/electro remix of the popular Nintendo “Legend of Zelda” theme. Here is a fun fact, Zedd still plays it in most of his shows in one form or another.
Zedd – Shave it
Zedd released some grizzly tunes on Skrillex’s OWSLA back in 2011 and they were Electro grinders. Zedd’s fascination for complextro appears in a harmonic form through this electro gem.
Zedd ft. Alessia Cara – Stay
This is one of the biggest pop tracks Zedd’s ever produced. Catchy vocals, unique samples and top tier production helped this record to hold a top 10 position in hot 100 for 23 weeks. Alessia Cara’s vocals play a big part in making this record, radio-friendly.
Zedd ft. Mathew Koma – Spectrum
This Mathew Koma and Zedd masterpiece took over the charts like a firestorm. With a spectrum of different elements, this melodic complextro banger still dominates the dancefloors from time to time.
Zedd, Maren Morris, Grey – The Middle
Zedd’s 2018 release alongside country star Maren Morris and Grey climbed charts faster than light itself. Really catchy vocals, perfect execution from the vocalists, and “less is more” style of production gets this tune a spot in the top ten.
Zedd ft. Foxes – Clarity
This record is Zedd’s biggest hit since the start. This was the song that took a rising electro producer onto the pop platform where he gained respect and adoration over the years. This not only conquered the radio but also rocked the festivals.
This ends our list of chart-topping Zedd records. But knowing the fans, everyone has an odd track or two that they like. If you do have one from this German superstar, please let us know in the comments.
