OMNIA San Diego announces Zedd, Porter Robinson, and more for major July lineupZedd Omnia 2

Electronic music lovers in San Diego know to look no further than Hakkasan Group‘s OMNIA night club. The multi-level club is revered for its opulent finishes and impeccable production. Known for securing a vast variety of acts, OMNIA will be kicking off perhaps its most heavy-hitting 2019 month yet this summer, thanks to forthcoming shows from Zedd, Porter Robinson, Chantel Jeffries, and more.

Zedd will be heating things up next month, indeed, with a Fourth of July celebration at the venue. July will also feature the debut of a new club night concept entitled Wild At Heart: sure to prove a tempting catalyst for the rowdier crowds to come out to play. Guests will enjoy a lengthy variation of themes, a robust talent roster, and an overall vivacious party atmosphere. Crankdat and Deorro will be making hotly anticipated appearances later in the month. Find general information on OMNIA, the club’s event schedule, and tickets available here.

Zedd issues extended response to Matthew Koma

On Wednesday, June 5, Matthew Koma took to Twitter to issue a contentious statement around his work with Zedd, and how he felt he’d more-or-less been given the short hand and pushed under the rug as Zedd grew in star power. Koma’s statement alleged that he’d been publicly discredited on watermark hits like “Clarity,” and that it’d even taken him years to receive pay on the 2012 anthem “Spectrum.”

Zedd issued a brief response on June 8 rebutting these claims, and has since released a more extended statement on the issue. He tackles each claim one-by-one, beginning by announcing his eternal pride in having worked with Matthew in the past and reiterating once more that he gave credit where credit is due. He also addressed the “Suitcase” falling out, advising he’d backed out of the unfinished project over artistic differences. The story ended with a desire to be able to “sit down as friends” with Koma and an apology that he felt underappreciated throughout their time as collaborators.

Zedd responds to Matthew Koma, denies wrongdoingZedd Matthew Koma

After “Clarity” and “Spectrum” writer, Matthew Koma’s head-turning testimonial against Zedd and their seemingly tumultuous professional dynamic surfaced earlier this week, the music community has been avidly awaiting a response from the Russian-German DJ/producer.

Zedd took to Twitter Friday to respond to Koma’s assertions that his former partner had exhibited “toxic” and “self-serving” behavior throughout their time working together, as well as shedding light on Zedd’s purported attempts to publicly suffocate and undermine Koma’s contributions to some of Zedd’s most decisive works.

Zedd, however, took the opportunity to issue something of a blanket denial of all Koma’s statements against him, maintaining he supported Koma “in every area I had control over.” He went as far as to wish Koma well and thank him for the impact he’s had on his music and career throughout their professional relationship.

Matthew Koma issues disparaging statement against serial collaborative partner, Zedd

A less widely known artistic ingredient, but a contributing factor nonetheless in the rise of now radio-ravaging producer, Zedd, Matthew Koma has shared a lengthy Instagram post. In it, he accuses his former partner of denying him due credit, and of displaying overall “toxic and self-serving” behavior.

The statement includes Koma’s assertion that Zedd not only took years to pay him for his work on the latter’s watershed 2012 single “Spectrum,” but that Zedd continued to publicly discredit Koma for his work on a number of projects carrying the Zedd emblem—including the undoubtedly decisive, Grammy-certified anthem, “Clarity.” Koma retains official writing credits on both singles. Koma also notes that during the making of the True Colors documentary tracing Zedd’s rise to stardom, he was the only collaborative entity of the time neither invited to be interviewed nor attend the premiere.

“The blows started small – him giving interviews about ‘the lyrics he wrote’ (I wrote every word and melody) with no mention of my name…”

Koma goes on to ascribe Zedd’s behavior to an “inferiority complex,” stemming from a supposed gap in instrumental know-how, particularly on the piano.

“I came to find out he could only play piano in the key of C and the keyboard wouldn’t transpose,” Koma writes. “Sort of contradicted the whole ‘genius classical pianist’ persona.”

Koma goes as far as to suggest Zedd is hardly any longer involved in the production and writing process of his own tracks. The ostensibly severe statement finds its place among a number of other inflammatory existing claims against the Russian-German artist, including a longstanding feud with Diplo.

Zedd‘s come quite a long way from his humble beginnings of dance music stardom. The producer has proven himself a favorite among the pop community, with a myriad of stars like Selena Gomez, Ke$ha, and various others approaching him for assistance in their next radio hits. The next up on this list is Katy Perry, and the two have whipped up a sentimental, earworm of an anthem in “Never Really Over.”

Perry’s full-bodied vocals sound good in the summery foundation Zedd has created, which unfolds at a pace friendly for singalongs. Though poignancy is present within the lyrics, as it deals with the topic of pining for lost love, Zedd does well in balancing it out with breezy instrumentation and big builds that feel built for blasting with the windows wide open. Expect to hear it in soundsystems all over the country as it moves up the charts.
