"Why are you my clarity"
"I want to be a relevant artist in the future, not just right now"
- Anton Zaslavski aka ZEDD
I've had the opportunity to see Zedd a few times now annddd every time I fan girl out SO hard. Zedd is so talented and full of amazing energy. One thing I love about seeing DJ sets is the crowd. If you look around every F*****G person is on the same page. Everyone is high on life, literally or not lol singing and dancing along. The energy is contagious.
Last week I was flying back from NYC and Zedd's Documentary "True Colors" was featured on Delta's movie selection. Naturally being a music fanatic I watched it. I was already a fan, but now I have MORE respect for the young DJ. This past weekend marked my third time seeing Zedd and once again he put on a great set. After the show, I was lucky to have an opportunity to express my appreciation for his music to him. He truly is one talented and humble guy!
