Outside of having an affinity for Daft Punk, electronic musician and producer Anton “Zedd” Zaslavski didn’t have much of an interest in electronic music. All that changed when he heard , the 2007 album by French electronic duo Justice.

“Justice to me sounded very similar [to Daft Punk] outside of the fact that their production was still some of the best in the world,” says Zaslavski via phone from Las Vegas, where he had just completed a residency at the Wynn hotel club XS. “I still sample their stuff. I wanted to know how to do that. I didn’t know how to make kicks and snares sound that good. That’s what got me going and wanting to be better.”
