Zedd recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in Hollywood, CA. There he performed “Beautiful Now” live alongside Jon Bellion and several others. A 12-piece ensemble was present on stage and the crowd was pretty rowdy for a Jimmy Kimmel musical performance. How often do we get to see DJs perform live? I think that we can agree that it’s pretty rare.
Apparently, Zedd tends to play many live shows much like this one. Interestingly enough, Zedd recently spoke up about how he believes that a lot of EDM lacks musicality and instrumentation. In the video, he explains what he means by that. Essentially, A full band can perform a Zedd song live, while others can’t say the same about their songs. There are countless other videos on YouTube of Zedd performing live, so it’s no surprise that he decides to speak on the subject. It’s clear that Zedd attempts to educate fellow aspiring DJs and producers to make real music.
