New Delhi resident, 22 year old versatile Sahil Sharma who goes by the stage moniker Zaeden will be debuting as a singer this year apart from being a prominent DJ-producer.
Best known for his remixes of ‘Magic’ by Coldplay, ‘Don’t Wanna Know’ plus ‘Animals’ by Maroon 5, and ‘Love Yourself’ by Justin Bieber and originals ‘Never Let You Go’ and ‘Yesterday’, the versatile producer has recently dropped his first ever cover of Lauv’s ‘I Like Me Better’ featuring Chezin.
With an aspiration to drop a cover version every month, Zaeden states, “2018 has just begun on an unbelievable note. I have always grown up in a musically infused atmosphere. Even before getting into dance music I heard my father creating cover versions of Kishore Kumar classics. He inspired me to creatively expand when he heard me sing randomly at home and suggested I should record at a professional studio. Drew Taggart of The Chainsmokers was also a huge inspiration in this creative process. This is my first cover as a singer and I’m quite excited for my next, which will be a mash-up for Valentines Day. Being a big fan of Lauv, it was an easy decision to pick this song for an acoustic cover, and my good friend and super talented musician Chezin, helped make this a reality.
Most of the time it’s his onstage enthusiasm that translates into an energy and a vibe that is quite remarkable for his age. Don’t forget to catch him at Supersonic, Pune this year where he will be merging instruments, singing and DJing for his first ever live set.
