Zeds Dead


Hailing from Toronto, Canada, Zeds Dead, formed in 2009, are an electronic music duo, amalgamating many styles into their music that is full of heavy bass lines.

Dylan Mamid (DC) and Zach Rapp-Rovan (Hooks) began their musical collaboration as Mass Productions, a project which championed the hip-hop tradition of crate-digging for samples, culminating in their first and only album release, “Fresh Beetz” in 2007, a hip-hop influenced record produced by the pair.

In 2009, they began their next musical project, under the name of Zeds Dead, which looked towards drum & bass, dubstep and electro house for inspiration. Their name references a scene in Quentin Tarantino’s film, “Pulp Fiction.” They established a weekly night at Toronto’s ‘751’ venue, called Bassmentality, which went on to host some of the biggest names in bass music, including Borgore, Plastician, Netsky, and Nero.

Following their success as promoters, Zeds Dead have gained the respect of artists worldwide through their own music, which manages to successfully blend many disparate genres into their own, unique sound. Their first single, “Rudeboy” was realized on Kissy Sell Out’s label San City High in 2010, featuring vocals from a regular collaborator, Omar LinX, a rapper from Toronto. Since this first release, Zeds Dead have gone to achieve significant success, with many of their releases topping the charts on Beatport and gaining the support of many top DJs.

Through offering free downloads of much of their early tracks, they managed to develop a growing popularity and support of many fans, who were eager to snap up these free releases.

Zeds Dead signed to Mad Decent, Diplo’s record label, releasing “Rumble in the Jungle” which reached number one on the breakbeat chart on Beatport. They have gone on to release several EPs on Mad Decent, achieving moderate success in the US charts, with “Hot Sauce” peaking at number 13 in the US Dance Chart and number six in the US Heat chart.
