Listening Post

While the new Deadmau5 album is everything I had hoped, I think this one may wind up being the electronic dance record of the year.

23-year-old Anton Zaslavski is a German DJ and mega-producer who goes by the stage name Zedd -- and what sets him apart from many of his contemporaries is the fact that he's a classically trained pianist and multi-instrumentalist so his dance tracks are often about far more than just dance. There's a musicality there that a lot of other DJs don't really offer -- an emphasis on the quality of the song as much as how well you can move to it.

Case in point, Zedd's new single -- which I can't stop listening to.

This is Spectrum, featuring Matthew Koma on vocals.
