German producer/DJ Anton Zaslaski — better known as Zedd — has announced that he will be releasing a documentary titled Moment of Clarity, out Thursday, Dec. 18. Though it is not explicitly stated, the documentary hints at his massive, worldwide tour last year, the Moment of Clarity tour, which stretched across the globe, hitting multiple spots across the United States, including two nights at the Aragon Ballroom to close out the year, as well as stops in Asia, Australia, South America and the U.K. From the trailer, it seems as though the documentary will encompass more of his recent career, including his Grammy win for Best Dance Recording with "Clarity."
2014 has been a great year for Zedd. The German DJ/producer's stock has skyrocketed since the commercial success of "Clarity," leading to major sponsorship and collaboration opportunities. The follow-up to "Clarity", "Stay the Night" alongside Paramore's Hayley Williams, went on to be a major late-2013, early-2014 hit for Zedd, managing to go platinum in the United States, according to Yahoo.
He has stepped out of just becoming a dance producer and helped bring his own brand of gritty, classically influenced electronic music to the pop world, bridging the gap even further between dance music and pop forged by David Guetta and later Calvin Harris.
His single with Ariana Grande, "Break Free," became the first true example of that, working with one of the biggest pop acts in the world. There have been hints that he has spent time in the studio Selena Gomez in advance of her upcoming album. A picture was posted online by Def Jam rapper Logic that the pair were in the studio "making something crazy."
Watch the trailer for the documentary below and see the full release Dec. 18.
