The unrelenting travel schedule of a world famous DJ like ZEDD seems to refuse to slow down, never mind stop. Whether “The Middle” producer is flying to Vegas to play a residency show at Omnia, or pulling out his passport on his way to the decks in international territory, there are some items that ZEDD simply can’t live without. From comfortable shoes—which by the way, fill a closet entirely of their own in the hit maker’s jaw-dropping California home—to sweatpants with zippers, to custom made earplugs to protect his eardrums, ZEDD breaks down a list of his top 10 travel essentials in a new GQ video interview.
While the list includes some unsurprising items, like a backpack to carry his nine other necessities, and the license keys that correspond with the software that he uses to produce music, ZEDD also acquaints viewers with the idiosyncratic nature of some of his personal must-haves. The DJ articulates his penchant for portable battery packs, admitting he sometimes carries as many as eight of the portable chargers, while also naming his favorite cologne, and more. See ZEDD’s full packing list in the video below.
Over recent months, mental health has been brought to the forefront of the music industry. We are not going to mention any of the tragic events that have occurred, because, well, quit honestly we all hold them very close to heart and they do not need to be resurfaced.

Gorillaz have definitely made their presence known over the last two years. Between Humanz in 2017 and The Now Now in 2018, the group is leading with the most music released.

Modern dance music has procured some of the most iconic stage setups in recent memory. Skrillex‘s mothership rig, Justice‘s legendary cross, and of course, Daft Punk‘s epochal pyramid immediately come to mind.
The conversation wouldn’t be complete, however, without mention of deadmau5‘s illustrious cube rig, and its 2017 upgrade when he launched the “Cube 2.0” and “Cube 2.2” designs. Now, deadmau5 is set to up the ante yet again.
so… yeah… we just built another cube… “other cube” we call it. you’ll see it soon.
The mau5trap head honcho announced a new iteration of his famed live performance weapon, simply designated the “Other Cube.” Tantalizing fans on Twitter, the “Strobe” creator promised the world will see the mysterious new cube soon, noting that it has already been built and, presumably, ready to hit the road.
2018 will see many artists announce tours, but Zeds Dead will not be one of them.
The Canadian duo recently took to Facebook to notify fans that the year will bring a touring schedule significantly less rigorous than their 2017.
“This year we’ve decided to do things a bit differently than usual,” Zeds Dead writes. “We won’t be on the road as much, very little actually. We’re going to be focusing on creating new Zeds Dead music, growing our label Deadbeats, our radio show, working to make our live shows even better, and possibly stopping to smell the roses once in a while.”
The Northern Lights producers assure fans that the year will still yield “tons of new music” originating not only from the Zeds Dead brand, but from their Deadbeats imprint as well.
While the hiatus will temporarily remove the bass aficionados from the touring track, fans will have the ability to catch Zeds Dead at a number of summer festivals, including Okeechobee Music Festival.
