Russian born DJ Zedd (proper name: Anton Zaslavski) may be best known to pop audiences as the producer behind Lady Gaga’s forthcoming and much-anticipated ARTPOP. Or as the guy almost did let Justin Bieber have the track for “Beauty And A Beat.” Or as a friend and partner-in-arms with Skrillex.

The DJ has also done a number of interesting remixes and, in fact, a remix contest on Beatport is where he started making a name for himself. In an interview with Radio.com, he broke down the art of making the best possible remix.

“It is different every time. A lot of people try to make [a song] sound better,” Zedd said. “A lot of people, I don’t know, try to make it a radio hit when they remix. For me it’s always been important, if I do a remix, it has to sound like me. If you play it to someone who knows the original, he has to be able to say, ‘It’s a Zedd remix.’ However your want to get there, that’s the one thing I can tell people. If you’re doing a remix, just try to make it your interpretation of the song.”
