When most people are stuck on trying to decide what to give a friend or family member as a housewarming gift, they usually end up with some generic hand towels or an overpriced kitchen gadget from Brookstone. In the case of Zedd’s new home, the popular DJ received quite the gift from his friends at Mars, Incorporated, who sent the “Get Low” producer his own customized Skittles dispenser machine.
As seen in the social media post below, Zedd (real name, Anton Zaslavski) looks like he certainly appreciates the kind gesture from the corporate candy manufacturer. The two parties have built quite the relationship over the last year, with the global food brand recruiting Zedd to help them celebrate M&M’s 75th birthday in 2016 with a remake of Sammy Davis Jr.'s 1972 “The Candy Man” song, with some vocal help from Aloe Blacc. The video for their remix collaboration can be watched above, and features some colorful cameos from everyone’s favorite talking and somewhat neurotic chocolate characters.
Zedd has continued to stay busy throughout 2017, having released collaborative singles with young pop singers Alessia Cara and Liam Payne earlier this year. More recently the young EDM star performed at the “Linkin Park and Friends” tribute concert at the Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl back on Oct. 27. The concert was Linkin Park’s first performance since the death of their singer Chester Bennington, and welcomed a cast of fellow artists including Steve Aoki, Blink 182, members of No Doubt and Alanis Morissette to name a few.
His final performance of 2017 will be taking place at the Decadence music event at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver on Dec. 30-31. Zedd joins a pretty loaded electronic-focused lineup along with Gramatik, ODESZA, Bassnectar, Diplo, Justice and more. Tickets for the two-night New Year's Eve event are on sale now, and can be purchased by clicking here.
