Zedd Brings Special Guest To Perform Surprise Set At Phoenix Show [VIDEO]

For his Pheonix stop on his True Colors tour, Zedd was forced to relocate the show from Mesa Amphitheater to Comerica Theatre in downtown due to technical difficulties. The "I Want You To Know" producer did more than make up for the last-minute change in plans as he brought out - what could be - his most epic special guest yet.

New York-based electro and progressive house producer Justin David Blau, better known as 3LAU, made a special appearance to drop a surprise set for Zedd fans.

This is actually a suitable match up as the two producers share similar views on dance music and sticking to compositions that speak about their musicianship and not just what's hot or what appeals to the mainstream audience, which is evident with 3LAU's Alive Again EP released a month ago (see below).

See what 3LAU had to say about the direction and techniques involved in Alive Again, and then listen to the full EP below...

"The Alive Again EP tries something different; it’s my effort to highlight elements of musical composition in a genre that too often prioritizes 'cool' or 'catchy' sounds over musicality. Each version of Alive Again was created with different production techniques, different song-writing styles and thus, each strives to invoke a unique emotional response. We listen to different genres of music depending on our states of mind, so I wanted people to enjoy the song behind Alive Again across multiple moods. Whether you’re feeling energetic, chill, or need a dose of vulnerability, there’s always a version to listen to..."

And just for fun, we had to include this...
