Zeds Dead, aka Dylan Mamid (DC) and Zachary Rapp-Rovan (Hooks), is an EDM duo from Toronto, Canada. The pair started calling themselves Mass Productions in 2004 and released an album under that name titled Fresh Beetz in 2007. Two years later they switched their name to Zeds Dead after a line from Quentin Tarantino’s 1994 classic film Pulp Fiction. It was also when the duo shifted their sound to more house and dubstep. Zeds Dead debuted with their single “Journey of a Lifetime” which was free to download and part of a series of other free tracks and remixes. In 2010 and 2011, they released music under many labels including Steve Aoki’s Dim Mak and Diplo’s Mad Decent. Following this, Zeds Dead released a slew of EPs with Somewhere Else entering the Billboard 200 in 2014. They released their debut LP in 2016 titled Northern Lights which had collaborations with Diplo, Pusha T, and Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo. The following year they won a Canadian Independent Music Award for Electronic/Dance Artist of the Year. Zeds Dead continued to shine, even throughout the pandemic, by headlining tours and festivals.
