Zeds Dead @ the TLA 4/7/11

Published on April 11th, 2011

Zeds Dead rained a heavy fire on those who attended their show on April 7th at the TLA. The group is composed of DC and Hooks, who hail from Toronto, Ontario. The two have been tearing up the scene since 2009, with support from artists such as Diplo, Rusko, and Bassnectar.

I was lucky enough to be one of the opening acts, and it’s fair to say that there was plenty of anticipation bristling throughout the venue. The other openers mixed and mashed heavy dubstep. The dark and dreaded Endboss brimmed the intensity of the crowd. We smoked cigarettes, drank Pabst, and waited for Zeds Dead to take the stage. The sound system seemed quieter than usual for the opening acts, but when they came on they thankfully turned it up. I rushed to jump around. The crowd did too.

The set rocked, ranging from heavy dubstep, to hiphop, to dutch house, and hard electro. I’d have to say that the two most memorable tracks were Feed Me’s unreleased remix of Nero’s “Innocence,” and Zed’s Dead’s remix of “White Satin,” which they played to close the night. Awesome. Despite so many genres, the mixing was flawless. The two effortlessly switched between MIDI controllers and mixers, dropping hectic effects all over the place. Have a listen and spread the lovin’.

Here’s a clip from Nero’s Essential Mix of the new Feed Me remix:
