Zeds Dead Biography
Dylan Mamid, artist name DC, and Zack Rapp-Rovan, widely known as Hooks, are the duo behind the Canadian Electronic music group Zeds Dead. The name Zeds Dead is not only a monogram for the band members names, Zack and Dylan, but is also a reference to Quentin Tarantino’s 1996 classic film Pulp Fiction, in which Bruce Willis’ character utters the words “Zeds Dead.”
The two first collaborated together in 2004 when they formed Mass Productions, heavily influenced by sampling Hip hop. Mass Productions released their only album in 2007 titled Fresh Beetz. Their second collaboration, known as Zeds Dead, was a bigger success.
Zeds Dead originated in Toronto, Ontario in the Summer of 2009. Creating Electronic beats, Mamid and Rapp-Rovan‘s first live show was at The Social in 2009. About a year later, Zeds Dead was booked as a weekly gig at Toronto’s social event Bassmentality.
As their popularity skyrocketed, their tours grew heavy in the UK, Canada, North America, Australia and New Zealand. But the duo always kept close to their roots and made time for Bassmentality.
Zeds Dead’s Electronic beats are often requested hits on the dance floor. The duo pulls from various musical inspirations including The Rolling Stones, Radiohead, Sublime, and The Moody Blues to bring their listeners unique jams.
Zeds Dead‘s first EP Rudeboy was released in 2010. Their latest album Adrenaline was released in January 2012.
