Weekend Rewind: Zedd’s first Top 20 Beatport hit ‘The Anthem’
Zedd’s popularity has escalated in recent months following success of hit “Clarity” leading to an appearance on Jimmy Fallon, cameo in the new mySpace commercials and announcement of world wide tour. To help you remember his meteoric beginning, we give you “The Anthem” released back in 2010. The track was Zedd’s first Beatport Top 20 single, created after winning two of Beatport’s noble remix competitions. Shortly afterwards, he caught Skrillex’ ear who signed him to his new OWSLA label in which he released “Shave It” and “Slam the Door.” This led to Interscope’s A&R bigwigs signing him for official remixes for artists like Lady Gaga and P.Diddy, while the rest is history.
