It has officially been 7 years since Zedd‘s ‘Spectrum‘ was released. Anton Zaslavski celebrated the anniversary of the track, which arguably launched his career, with a tribute on all platforms.
However, although this is something to be excited about, there has also been a gray cloud casted on this happy day.
Matthew Koma, who provides the vocals for ‘Spectrum’ and other tracks with Zedd’, posted on social media today a dark description about the years of working with the Grammy-winning producer.
Today, Koma gave fans an inside perspective on what really happened with Zedd’s award winning single ‘Spectrum’; along with many others released under Zedd’s name.
“It’s a really sad truth because I’m extremely proud of the work he and I did together… unfortunately my good feelings toward those songs have all but disappeared as they were experienced alongside someone so toxic and self serving that it occupied the space where any happiness could exist.”
Koma ended his statement with, “Now, he has plenty of people to write his songs and produce his tracks and help him continue on his trajectory. But I rather work at Starbucks and clean the toilets than ever experience that abusive dynamic again.”
Koma hinted at a possible falling out with the producer during the 2018 Twitter feud with Diplo. It did leave many wondering what could have possibly happened. And now we have some understanding on the matter.
Not long after Koma came out with this shocking revelation, Zedd’s long time friend and photographer, Rukes seems to chime in and supposedly has a story of his own. Rukes as some of you may know is one of the world’s best DJ photographers and has toured with Zedd in recent years. Commenting on Koma’s Instagram post, Rukes responds to fans stating he has a story of his own but now is not the time to share and that he quit Zedd’s team in 2018. Check out the comments below.
We’ll patiently watch to see how this feud unfolds. Zedd has yet to issue a statement in regards to these allegations.
