German Progressive/Electro House DJ Anton Zaslavski, whose profile has risen to stratospheric levels as Zedd, is the latest to appropriate the caboose of the alphabet for his moniker, perhaps indicating that he is the be-all-end-all in EDM culture, perhaps just an allusion to the initial in his surname. (He also tacked on an additional “d” for style points.)
Last year was Zedd’s biggest so far; he signed with Interscope, released the album Clarity (which spawned a huge hit with the title track), co-produced the song “Beauty and a Beat” for Justin Bieber and is a producer on Lady Gaga’s forthcoming album, ARTPOP.
Zedd plays 8 p.m.
Tuesday, Sept. 10 with Oliver and Alex Metric at Bogart's in Corryville. $23. bogarts.com.
