One of the fastest-rising
up-and-comers out of Toronto, ZEDS DEAD is composed of producers DC and Hooks,
making some amazing hip-hop-influenced beats. DC and Hooks originally joined
forces in 2004 as Mass Productions. Influenced by the digging in the crates sampling
school of hip hop, Mass Productions released one independent album in the summer
of 2007 entitled Fresh Beetz. It was their first and only release.
summer of 2009, the duo launched their second collaboration—ZEDS DEAD—turning up
the BPM and aiming the bass lines at the dance floor. Since their launch, ZEDS
DEAD have released several fan favorites on some of today’s most influential
independent electronic dance music labels, including Mad Decent/Jeffree's, Dim
Mak, San City High, Basshead and more.
As two of the hardest workers in
electronic music, ZEDS DEAD’s tireless efforts have earned them an excellent
reputation amongst a new generation of producers as artists without borders;
genres hold no bearing over their music as they transcend style and form with
ease. They have established themselves as a dominant force in EDM circles and
have received recognition and praise from tastemakers worldwide, including
Skrillex, Diplo, Bassnectar and 12th Planet.
Catch them live and you'll know:
ZEDS DEAD is here to stay.
