Zeds Dead is a Canadian electronic music duo from Toronto, composed of Dylan Mamid, or DC, and Zach Rapp-Rovan, or Hooks. DC and Hooks have been producing music together since 2004.
The duo are currently signed to the record label, Mad Decent, and have released music on several others; much of their music remains bootlegged, unofficially released, or given away as free downloads. Similarly to "Yolanda Be Cool", the name "Zeds Dead" is a reference to a scene in the 1994 Quentin Tarantino film Pulp Fiction.
Zeds Dead explores a diverse variety of genres that combine aspects of electro house, hip-hop, glitch, and drum and bass into their largely dubstep platform. Frequent collaborator, rapper Omar LinX, has worked with the duo on several occasions, producing two EPs together as a trio. Zeds Dead tours in extensive fashion and are significant components of the live music and festival circuits. Their Living Dead Tour, which spanned from February to May 2012, included over seventy performances in the United States and Canada alone.
