* SelfBackingVocalist: Played with. While Zedd never sings the lead vocals of a song himself, he does provide backing vocals for the singer who is.


* ICantBelieveItsNotHeroin: "Clarity" is a song about tragic lovers, right? However, one theory about the song, based on [[https://archive.fo/v96kJ#selection-1043.1-1043.90 clues from the lyrics]] [[https://archive.fo/i2H3H#selection-2223.0-2223.55 and music video]], suggests it's actually about dealing with addiction to crystal methamphetamine.

Zedd (born Anton Zaslavski on September 2, 1989) is an ElectronicMusic producer and DJ. Initially a classically trained pianist, he became interested in electronic music as a teenager after hearing the ''Cross'' album by Music/{{Justice}}. He got his start in the electronic scene when he won two different Beatport remix contests; his first original release, "The Anthem", broke into the Beatport Electro house Top 20. His remix of Skrillex's "Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites" broke into the Beatport Electro House Top Ten charts, coming to rest at number 2. His career has included not only his own original material, but several remixes, collaborations, and producing music for other artists including Music/LadyGaga, Music/{{Skrillex}}, Music/JustinBieber, and more. His music is primarily ElectroHouse with touches of {{Dubstep}}.

* FadingIntoTheNextSong: On Clarity, Hourglass flawlessly transitions into Shave It Up.
** True Colors takes the cake on this trope. Done With Love goes straight into the album title track very easily, Papercut fades into Bumble Bee with no trouble at all, and Daisy and Illusion are practically two sides to one long track.
