The twenty-four year-old San Francisco native is continuing to make a name for himself in the EDM community, with things like his most recent collab with Zed’s Dead in “Lights Go Down,” and his much anticipated album that should be

Zeds Dead has never sacrificed quality in their weekly radio show output. Following an announcement they’d be taking time away from touring to focus on their Deadbeats radio show, the Toronto duo has delivered another robust mix. Every few weeks or so, the boys keep their mixes fresh by introducing special guests or special themed mixes, such as their dubstep throwback episode.
Zeds Dead have taken on a “Drum n’ Bass Special” for the 29th episode of their Deadbeats radio show. The entire hour-long mix is an ode to their personal inspirations in the genre over the span of twenty years. Featuring nods to Noisia‘s “Could This Be” to Adam F‘s “Circles,” Zeds Dead are vocal about the DnB artists who’ve had an influence on their own sound design as they began crossing over from hip-hop into electronic music.
“Coming from making hip-hop, drum n’ bass is double the speed of hip-hop and it was the first sort of gateway drug for us into electronic music, and it was cool because a lot of drum n’ bass people were remixing hip-hop songs and it had kind of the same attitude, back then at least. So it was sort of the natural progression and it was the sound designs and textures and insane production quality that really attracted us to it, and we wanted to use those sound in different ways, it inspired us to up our production game, and I think anyone who listens to drum n’ bass has a really high standard for beat making.”
The mix also features Zeds Dead’s monstrous collaboration with Jauz, “Lights Go Down,” and their special DnB flip of Drake‘s “No Tellin’.” The boys also reveal that they are going to start doing many more themed episodes in the future.

Bass maestros Zeds Dead and Ganja White Night teamed up for a smashing single titled “Samurai.” The track is haunting in essence, and breathes an air of suspense onto listeners’ necks before thrusting into chaos.
“Samurai is what happens when you bring Hans Zimmer to a rave,” described the two groups.
Zimmer would likely have a panic attack, though, if he witnessed the breakdown in “Samurai,” as the collaborators at hand have generated a palpable tenacity in the track’s high energy catharsis. Zeds Dead’s metallic tinged synths are drawn out by the dub-influenced nature of Ganja White Night’s undertones in what is best described as a head over heels trek into dubstep chaos.
What happens when two of the most notable duos in electronic music get together? Pure, unadulterated filth. The boys of Zeds Dead and Ganja White Night just blew our minds with their debut collaboration, ‘Samurai’. An elegant piano intro draws you in and then you’re lead into a beautiful marriage of classic Zeds Dead synths

Christened with the same name as the bass behemoth’s continually evolving imprint, Zeds Dead’s DeadBeats Radio show routinely curates the latest releases from DeadBeats labelmates and guests alike. Episode #031 of the weekly radio series sees Canadian DJ and “no neon” aesthetician Hunter Siegel hop in the DeadBeats cut as the featured guest mixer for the show’s 31st installment. While Big Wild drives temps on the sonic thermometers upwards, receiving the “DeadHeat” designation of the week for “When I Get There,” Siegel’s personality as a producer shines through in both his manipulation of track pacing and bass punctuation. Siegel seamlessly shifts BPM speeds, surprising listeners with pops of bass at unexpected junctures as the mix progresses.
2018 will see many artists announce tours, but Zeds Dead will not be one of them.
The Canadian duo recently took to Facebook to notify fans that the year will bring a touring schedule significantly less rigorous than their 2017.
“This year we’ve decided to do things a bit differently than usual,” Zeds Dead writes. “We won’t be on the road as much, very little actually. We’re going to be focusing on creating new Zeds Dead music, growing our label Deadbeats, our radio show, working to make our live shows even better, and possibly stopping to smell the roses once in a while.”
The Northern Lights producers assure fans that the year will still yield “tons of new music” originating not only from the Zeds Dead brand, but from their Deadbeats imprint as well.
While the hiatus will temporarily remove the bass aficionados from the touring track, fans will have the ability to catch Zeds Dead at a number of summer festivals, including Okeechobee Music Festival.
This is something that came to my mind when and only when I saw this video on Jauz’ socials. But the “music video” for the new Jauz & Zeds Dead track, “Lights Go Down” has been posted and we felt the need to share with our bass loving listeners ASAP. 2018 is going to be
