The nominations for the 2018 Grammy Awards have been announced, and several of the artists who were nominated were artists that we've worked with in the past. You can see some of those artists here
. Because so many artists that we've worked with were nominated, we felt like proud parents, and thus created a brand new Grammy Spotlight series where we feature one of those artists every day leading up to the award show, which takes place this Sunday, January 28th.
Today we're spotlighting Russian-German DJ, Zedd
. The producer's single "Stay (ft. Alessia Cara)" was nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, going against our other recent Grammy Spotlight
, Portugal. The Man
(we hope they, uh, both win? Is that possible?). In light of the nomination, we're throwing it back to October 2015 when we had the chance to chat with Zedd, real name Anton Igorevich Zaslavski, right before he took the stage at Madison Square Garden during his immersive audio-visual True Colors Tour
. During the interview, we talked about being in a band vs. being a solo artist, his very beginnings with performing, and much more. Watch it all go down above as we wait for the big winner to be revealed this Sunday, January 28th. Best of luck to Zedd!
