Zedd is well known for his crunchy bass, uplifting harmonies, and stunning live shows. He first welcomed success after remixing Skrillex’s “Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites,” and the rest was history, as they say. With two albums under his belt, Clarity and True Colors, it’s no wonder some of the hottest pop stars have tagged him into the production ring. From Lady Gaga to Justin Bieber, Zedd has proven time and time again that he can churn out some of pop’s biggest hits with his signature sound.
The first pop crossover hit from Zedd was Justin Bieber’s “Beauty and the Beat.” Take a close listen, and you’ll hear Zedd’s unmistakeable sound bleed through the mix.
The next track is rather obvious since it includes Zedd as a feature, but it’s still a goodie worth noting. Take a listen to his track with Ariana Grande, “Break Free.”
Lindsey Stirling, the phenomenal electronic violinist, also worked with Zedd to create the hit “Love’s Just A Feeling” off her new album.
Finally, we have two tracks by Lady Gaga that boast the mark of Zedd. Just like the aforementioned tracks, these Lady Gaga productions are woven with Zedd’s sensational style and iconic sound.

In anticipation of even more Calvin Harris singles coming our way, Billboard did some digging and found five of the most unexpected songs that the Scottish producer/DJ created for other artists. Modern classics by some of pop’s biggest names, such as Chris Brown and Rihanna, and well-known hits from the likes of Kylie Minogue and Cheryl are all included on the list, adding even more weight to Harris’ already impressive roster of work.
- First up is “In My Arms” by Kylie Minogue, produced in 2007 and acclaimed as one of the Australian vocalist’s best tracks.
2. Next is “Yeah x3” by Chris Brown, one of 2011’s most recognizable pop hits. Although the track wasn’t orginally created by Harris, he was later given credit after it was found out how similar the track sounded to Calvin’s own “I’m Not Alone.”
3. Third on the list is Rihanna’s “Where Have You Been,” a song that continues to get stuck in my head even five years after its release. This song came as an early precursor to the highly esteemed collaboration between the two, “This Is What You Came For,” which was certified platinum earlier this year.
4. Next up is Cheryl’s “Call My Name,” off her third studio album in 2012. The track saw immense success in Europe, reaching the top of the charts in Ireland, Scotland and the UK.
5. Last, we have “I Will Never Let You Down” by Rita Ora. During her relationship with Harris, when he supposedly produced an entire album for her, the single was released by itself. After they broke up, the rest of the album was shut away before the public could get their hands on it.

Ookay has been riding high off of the success of his massive single, “Thief.” Even after having his Soundcloud deactivated, Ookay was able to bounce back – it wasn’t like he wasn’t allowed to play “Thief” live anymore, after all. Still, he’s been teasing new music for quite a while and finally, his new EP The Cocoon has dropped.
The new EP sees Ookay deviate from his older, trappier persona as he delves even further into his more melodic, more song-like self that we saw on “Thief.”
“Back Again” and “Sure” exemplify this change most starkly, with calm, serene vocals and a not-so-lit beat. “New Jack Swing” is definitely the heaviest track on the bunch, but even then, it isn’t really trap. The remaining two, “Long Time” and “Bring It Back” continue to shine a new light on Ookay’s production and direction.
Are any of these tracks individually better than “Thief”? I don’t think so, but that’s up for anyone’s interpretation. However, the release as a whole is going to be monumentally important in Ookay’s career as the moment that he really found his sound. With the way that electronic music is heading as a whole, it’s become so much easier for producers to experiment with new sounds that truly reflect what they want to make, rather than what the audience demands to hear.
Listen to The Cocoon below.

I think it’s safe to assume that from what we’ve heard deadmau5 produce lately, we’re all more than just a little excited for the next album that he’s going to put out. It seems like a true return to form for the progressive wizard after some fans were disappointed with his more commercial albums.
On his stream last night, he shared another song which only exemplifies that attention to detail and beauty that he’s capable of. Without a doubt, this is one of the most soothing songs he’s created.
He also shared another song which, while a little less soothing, still exuded his authentic style.
We’re not sure what songs will end up on the eventual album, if any that he’s already shared, but whatever it is, we’re really going to love this one.
