SANTA MONICA, Calif., Aug. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Russian-born German-raised EDM producer/DJ/songwriter, Zedd, is set to release his full-length debut album, Clarity, on October 9th via Interscope Records.  The album will include the wildly popular track "Spectrum" Feat. Matthew Koma, which was #1 on Beatport for 18 days and rocketed into the top 10 on the iTunes dance chart.  The album was recorded over an 8-month period from January through August 2012, and features collaborations with Ellie Goulding, Ryan Tedder and Foxes.

Having already toured with Lady Gaga on her "Born This Way Ball' tour, Skrillex and Deadmau5 among others, Zedd will join fellow artist and friend, Porter Robinson for their Poseidon Tour this fall. The Poseidon Tour features both Zedd and Porter playing back-to-back tracks, alternating throughout the night. Full dates and info below.  Says Zedd, "I am psyched to be playing the B2B shows with Porter on the Poseidon Tour.  Playing with a great artist and friend allows us to bounce off of each other, creating this morphed set with crazy energy that highlights both our styles." 

As a Rolling Stone "Artist to Watch" for 2012 as well as a Billboard 2012 Fall Preview "10 to Watch", Zedd is poised to become one of the biggest names in the music world. He has separated himself in a crowded field by drawing from a diverse musical training and background spanning from classical to post-hardcore/metal to electro house in order to make meticulously detailed and carefully produced compositions.

Zedd first made waves with a series of well-received remixes of tracks by Skrillex, The Black Eyed Peas, Fatboy Slim, and Lady Gaga.  He has appeared at numerous festivals including Coachella, Ultra, Electric Daisy Carnival, Nocturnal, Tomorrowland, Lollapalooza, and Hard Summer, and is confirmed to appear at Creamfields and Electric Zoo in New York.
