Born Anton Zaslavski, Zedd was raised in Kaiserslautern, Germany by two classically trained musicians. He began playing the piano at the age of four and built up his knowledge of the Classical repertoire throughout his childhood. At age twelve, he learned to play the drums and, soon after, he began performing with the post-hardcore/metal trio Dioramic. As a pre-teen he was already composing and producing numerous rock songs in his band's own studio. He started getting interested in electronic music in 2009 after hearing the French electronic duo Justice.
He began producing electronic music, and within an incredibly short period of time amassed widespread critical and audience acclaim. Zedd then caught the interest of Skrillex who essentially found him on the net and signed him to his new OWSLA label. He caught the ear of Interscope A&R Dave Rene and Interscope Geffen A&M Chairman Jimmy Iovine and successfully released several official remixes for powerhouse artists such as Lady GaGa, Black Eyed Peas, P. Diddy, Swedish House Mafia and Skrillex on labels including Interscope, mau5trap and EMI.
