JAN. 9, 2014
Las Vegas – Multi-platinum artist Zedd has established an exclusive residency with Wynn Las Vegas daylife and nightlife venues Encore Beach Club, Surrender and XS in 2014. The GRAMMY nominated DJ/producer/songwriter will debut at XS on Friday, Jan. 31, launching a powerfully programmed weekend featuring Skrillex (Feb. 1), Lil Jon (Feb. 2) and R.L. Grime (Feb. 3) at the award-winning nightclub.
“I’m very much looking forward to bringing my own show to Wynn Las Vegas and its celebrated venues. Wynn is constantly evolving and continues to provide a great experience for artists and fans alike” says Zedd.
Zedd, born Anton Zaslavski, has separated himself in a crowded field by drawing from a diverse musical training and a background spanning from classical to post-hardcore/metal to electro house, creating detailed, carefully produced compositions that also appeal to audiences outside of the EDM realm. He first made waves with a series of remixes of tracks by Skrillex, The Black Eyed Peas and Fatboy Slim. Zedd signed with Interscope records in 2012 and released his debut album Clarity to much critical acclaim with Rolling Stone deeming him an “Artist to Watch.”Clarity climbed to No. 3 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic chart fueled by the success of “Spectrum” which was named the Billboard “Dance Club Song of the Year.” Title track, “Clarity” climbed to No. 2 at Top 40 radio, went Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 and has been nominated for a 2014 GRAMMY Award for Best Dance Recording. The video, which led to a 2013 “Artist to Watch” MTV Video Music Award nomination, has racked up more than 50 million YouTube views. Zedd wrapped his “Moment of Clarity” world tour last month while his current single, “Stay The Night” ft. Hayley Williams of Paramore continues to climb the charts.
“Zedd is one of the most innovative producers in the EDM scene and will bring a dynamic addition to our roster this year,” said Jesse Waits, managing partner of XS and Tryst nightclubs. “His tracks’ originality helps his audience transcend across musical genres, and these DJ sets are an experience that fans from across the globe will want to capture inside our venues.”
"When we were discussing potential new artists to bring on board for this coming year, Zedd was one of our top choices. He’s clearly a huge talent whose quick rise to international success was impressive to watch,” said Sean Christie, managing partner of Encore Beach Club and Surrender Nightclub. “We’re big fans of his music and are excited he chose to join Wynn Las Vegas for 2014.”
