“It all started with a moment of clarity,” says Zedd, reminiscing on the moment he wrote “Clarity” (feat. Foxes), the hit song that brought him into the spotlight.
The 25-year-old DJ and producer’s mini-documentary, Moment of Clarity, gives fans a behind the scenes look at last years world tour of the same name.
In the documentary, we learn that the crew only had a grand total of 8-hours of rehearsal for the tour. If they hadn’t said anything I wouldn’t have noticed, because the edits of the tour scenes were superb.
Zedd is such a busy body that one of his band members believes there are two of him, one relaxed version of him at the piano, “and another one answering emails, because he gets stuff done!”
In one part of the video, Zedd is watching his fans on Twitter tweet about the leak of “Stay the Night,” a song he recorded with Hayley Williams. “Sh*t happens,” he said after getting off the phone with his manager.
The funniest parts of this documentary are the story of how he ended up producing three songs for Lady Gaga’s Artpop and his response to how he’s holding up on the tour.
“I bought a juicer,” he tells the journalist. The scene should have cut to a smoothie tutorial. That would have been perfect.
The documentary features appearances by Skrillex, Hayley Williams, Foxes and Matthew Koma.
