Nearly 13 Years into their careers, Zeds Dead continue to prove they are among the most innovative and influential artists in electronic music. 

On September 9th, the Toronto duo will release “The Machines,” a highly-anticipated set ID and collaboration with Deadbeats mainstay, BLANKE. ZD recently played the track live with BLANKE at Red Rocks, and are looking to continue their hot 2022 with their heaviest banger of the year.

“The Machines” marks the 4th official release from Zeds Dead this year, following up a collab with Blunts & Blondes (“Think of You”) as well as acclaimed singles “I Took A Ride” & “In My Head.” Previous singles have offered fans more in the direction of their new sub-label, Altered States, which navigates house, downtempo and dubstep adjacent genres. Read More at Billboard On “The Machines,” fans find the duo returning to electro-driven dubstep.

Zeds Dead recently announced their Deadbeats label tour for 2022 that kicked off on July 2 & 3rd with two sold out shows at Red Rocks Amphitheater, followed by an equally clamored for takeover at the Brooklyn Mirage. The duo will bring one of the most unique, diverse electronic road shows to iconic venues across the country such as Masonic Temple in Detroit, WaMu Theatre in Seattle, The Shrine in LA, and more. 

Zeds Dead has helped define vintage dubstep sound in America; popularizing the genre in the late 00s out of Toronto. Generations of artists count the Canadian duo among their biggest inspirations, fueled by the creation of the Deadbeats and Altered States labels. Deadbeats has become a widespread home for the idea of North American dubstep, while playing host to a diverse cast of artists and styles of bass music. This openness to explore culture trends and work with its creators led to the birth of Altered States, which further adventures into a wide array of sonic stylings like house music.

Further cementing their status as bass music’s finest, Zeds Dead took over Denver this past 4th of July weekend for a 5-set, 3-night run in Denver, the unofficial bass music capital of America. The annual event not only included sold out, back-to-back nights at Red Rocks, but an outdoor Jamboree and 2-set gig at the renowned Mission Ballroom.
