It’s 2019, and Zedd’s ability to crack the charts remains ultimately unquestioned, but how about his ability to crack an egg?
The German-born producer-turned-sous-chef hits the culinary decks alongside cooking royalty Gordon Ramsay to put his surprisingly sophisticated spin on the breakfast sandwich (featuring bacon, goat cheese, shallots, and chives, for clarity’s sake). In addition to a first-hand lesson from Ramsay himself, Zedd offers fans insight into how his creative process has changed over the years and details his upcoming tour.
The Orbit Tour takes off on the west coast as of Sept. 13 and is scheduled to touchdown in Europe in early November.
The early 2010s EDM boom hit while I was in high school. I grew up in a suburb outside of Washington, DC, where nights were spent driving around aimlessly, blasting dubstep on garbage speakers. On weekends, the road extended toward the 9:30 Club, Black Cat, and Merriweather Post Pavilion, historic venues that were opening their … More »
Leave it to the Las Vegas club circuit to keep things hot, even as summer begins to wind to a close. Following a hefty Labor Day Weekend billing, Hakkasan has delivered its September lineup, consisting of some of the hottest dance acts in the world, from Tiësto, ZEDD, Calvin Harris, and many more.

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.
Last week, Matthew Koma accused DJ and producer Zedd of ripping him off by taking credit for writing the hit songs “Spectrum” and “Clarity,” both of which were included on Zedd’s 2012 debut album Clarity. Koma says he wrote “every word and melody” on the songs. The EDM world is, I guess, up-in-arms. More »
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.
Matt, I am sorry you feel this way. I don’t feel the same, nor do I agree with your description of our history together. I supported you in every single area I had control over as I do with any and all of my collaborators.
Anton Zaslavski, otherwise known as Zedd, has become a household name the world over through his smash-hit successes “Clarity,” “Stay the Night,” and “Break Free.” But it is turning out that the Grammy award-winning producer may not be who he is cracked up to be. Matthew Koma, the American singer-songwriter who wrote “Clarity,” and “Spectrum,” has
Matthew Koma worked with Zedd on his hit singles “Spectrum” and “Clarity.” Today, seven years since the release of “Spectrum,” Koma decided to speak out about working with the DJ/producer. Zedd allegedly took credit for writing the songs, even though Koma claims to have “[written] every word and melody.” He also said Zedd delayed his … More »
