German producer Zedd has attracted a lot of attention — not the least of which includes his collaborative efforts with Lady Gaga. But the most interesting thing about his performance last night on Late Night With David Letterman isn’t his collaborator (the very lovely Foxes) but rather, that he transformed his EDM sound into a lovely, downtempo emo-style set. Foxes contributed gorgeous vox, backed by a string sextet (!).
This may not be the official death of EDM, but it is the sound of new things to come in 2013. Watch up top.
