[All about real-estate and nothin’ about who invented/influences house music]
DJ Zedd, the artist responsible for the hit single “Clarity,” recently purchased a gorgeous $3.9 million home in Hollywood, California that’s 3,443 square feet with 4 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. Pretty impressive for the recently-popular DJ, and with the increased popularity of EDM in general, that got us thinking about other pricey DJ pads.
As one of not only the highest paid DJs of the world but also entertainers in general, we can imagine that Harris has a little more than “sweet nothing” to come home to. We were right: his Beverly Hills mansion cost him a whopping $15 million dollars, an upgrade from his past $7 million abode. It is comprised of four separate structures and sits on 2.7 acres of land, an infinity-edge pool and a home theatre. In other words, it spares no wealthy-person luxury. Harris made the purchase a few months before the release of his latest studio album drop; he must have known more success was coming his way.
Just before Harris made his $15 million purchase, Avicii was looking for a home in L.A. as well. In March of 2014, Aviici spent half of his net worth on a $15.5 million home with beautiful views of the city. Avicii set the president that world-renowned DJs live most comfortably in sprawling, modern L.A. mansions.
Another major player in the DJ scene is Deadmau5 (pronounced dead mouse, you’re welcome noobs, we just saved you from getting owned in the future) took a different approach to real-estate purchase. Rather than spend upwards of $10 million on a glitzy Los Angeles pad, Deadmau5 purchased a 116-acre residence in Ontario, Canada for just $5 million. Deadmau5 made the purchase right after Calvin Harris’ big money drop and, naturally, took to Twitter to gloat about his savviness and ultimate superiority by going against the grain. Deadmau5 also made this purchase before the release of another album and the beginning of a new tour.
Rather than buying, Aoiki just sold his Hollywood Hills mansion, complete with an in-house recording studio, for upwards of $1 million. Aoiki consistently makes the list of highest paid DJs year after year and his net worth is an astounding $45 million, so chances are he’s shopping around for a nice upgrade. Stay tuned.
