Anton Zavlaski, more known as Electronic music artist Zedd, may be making a name in the electronic music industry, collaborating with artists such as pop superstar Ariana Grande and rock band Paramore’s Hayley Williams, but his knowledge in music production is beyond electronic music.
For one, Zedd used to be part of a Progressive rock band Dioramic, where he plays the drums and percussions. How good was he as a drummer? Here’s a video of him doing his thing back then:
Not yet convinced with Zedd’s mad drumming skills? Here’s another footage: Aside from playing the drums, Zedd learned playing the piano at age 4, thinking that he would be a professional pianist someday. But then, fate changed its course and his career as well.
While being in the band for nine years, he made his shift to making electronic music after listening to Electronic duo Justice’s first album Cross. Yet despite making it big as an electronic music artist, Zedd’s piano skills remain on point, evident with this video:
Also, his drum skills still remain on point as well: Indeed, Zedd is a rare individual in the electronic music industry given his broad talent when it comes to playing with the piano and drums. The next thing we would like to see in his concert at MOA Arena on August 8? Zedd playing the drums and the piano live, in front of his avid fans.
