Los Angeles & London
London-raised and Los Angeles-based DJ, artist, producer, and entrepreneur Zen Freeman artfully adds a touch of refinement to his immersive sets, hypnotic and head-nodding original productions, and dynamic portfolio of ventures. Whether curating music for Gucci and Vogue, soundtracking events for The Academy® Awards and Jeff Bezos, or unveiling songs of his own with legends such as Macy Gray, he seamlessly adapts to any setting.
After DJ-ing one of the hottest Golden Globes® parties in Los Angeles, he quietly emerged as an in-demand musical presence and a pioneer for the global metropolitan club scene. Prada, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Giorgio Armani, and Vanity Fair sought out his curation, while Cartier, Burberry, Louis XIII, and Soho House enlisted him as a music supervisor. Hundreds of exclusive parties followed with events for the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Elton John, and Elon Musk everywhere from Sundance Film Festival and Toronto International Film Festival to Cannes Film Festival. At the same time, he headlined solo residencies at Hakkasan, Wet Republic, XS Nightclub, and Encore Beach Club. He effectively established himself as the first luxury DJ to tour worldwide and grace the stages of festivals on multiple continents. Building up a catalog of original compositions, Zen has generated millions of streams, collaborated with Fred Falke, Todd Edwards, Mr. Hudson, Rufus Wainwright, Ten Ven, Latroit, and dropped tracks on Defected & Azuli Records, TMRW Music, Rising Music, Armada Music, and Fly Eye Recordings. Not to mention, he’s attracted the support of Calvin Harris, Diplo, David Guetta, Fedde Le Grand, Bob Sinclair, and more. In 2021, he continues to sharpen his signature style with his next single “Make Me Free” [feat. Macy Gray]. Powered by live bass, retro synthesizers, and nineties drum machines, it nods to turn-of-the-century French house with a straightforward, yet unshakable groove. It also paves the way for much more to come from Zen.
