Zeds Dead
DC and Hooks are Zeds Dead.

They first hooked up in 2004 and formed Mass Productions. Influenced by the digging in the crates sampling school of hip hop, Mass Productions released one independent album in the summer of 2007 entitled Fresh Beetz. It was their first and only release.

In the summer of 2009, the two launched their second collaboration - Zeds Dead - turning up the bpm and aiming the bass-lines at the dance-floor. Soon after Zeds Dead (alongside the Killabits) founded a weekly party in Toronto called BassMentality. Guests have included Nero, Skrillex, 12th Planet, Borgore, Mary Anne Hobbs, Plastician, Netsky, and many more.

Two of the hardest workers in electronic music, Zeds Dead's tireless efforts have earned them an excellent reputation amongst a new generation of producers as artists without borders - genres hold no bearing over their music as they transcend style and form with ease. By pulling from a vast array of source material (Radiohead, The Rolling Stones, The Moody Blues, Sublime), and molding it into their unique brand of dance-floor classics, They have established themselves as a dominant force in EDM circles and have received recognition and praise from tastemakers worldwide. With a stockpile of originals and remixes set to be released in 2011, DC and Hooks show no signs of slowing down.
Ghastly
Growing up on a goat farm in Arizona might not be considered the typical American upbringing for the next big DJ and producer, but then again Ghastly isn't just your typical American artist. Many have described him as a partially insane young man with a dark sense of humor. Politely abominable and casually destructive, he wields the catch phrase "born to die" as a mantra to his chaotic lifestyle. His sets have been heralded as "Energetic and eclectic live performances which are sometimes followed by odd speeches about the abnormalities of life, regretful sexual encounters, and well cooked food." With such a diverse personality and rapport for his fans, it's clear that Ghastly has one thing on his mind, and that's to change the world.
After entering the music scene and practicing his talents with touring metal bands such as The Irish Front, David Lee Crow finally found his calling with dance music and it inspired him to pack up and head to Venice Beach, California to live out of his van with no contacts or connections in a chosen gesture to truly start from the bottom and pursue a new career in electronic production. It didn't take long for him to find his place in the scene, as Ghastly quickly claimed himself a position as Bassrush Resident DJ at Exchange LA, and has also secured a number of releases on chart-topping labels such as OWSLA, Buygore, and Dim Mak to name a few.
Ghastly's approachable yet hard-hitting style ushers a forward-thinking dynamic that is not often seen in today's saturated scene, and his solo productions and collaborations present an unequivocal level of determination and finesse. Uniquely blending house, trap, and dubstep into a pot-pourri of bass, the young producer definitively pushes the boundaries of the entire EDM scene today, and a handful of the industry's finest have recognized his potential including Skrillex, Diplo, Dillon Francis, Tchami, DJ Snake, Datsik, Borgore, Zomboy, and Zeds Dead. With slew of mentally-stimulating originals and physically-altering collaborations under his belt, such as his original "Miami Connection" with Jauz and single "Crank It" with Mija & Lil Jon, it's safe to say that Ghastly is on a mission to redefine dance music for all.
Unlike Pluto
The music you listen to, paints your psyche.


Ahem,

There once was a pie, but this wasn't an ordinary pie that insults your every economical move while questioning your existence and religious beliefs with a condescending Bill Maher-esque tone. It was a normal Baby-Boomer generation pie riddled with overcooked genetically modified apples that, once eaten, can make a human bow down to all suborder Caniformia with a hint of cinnamon. What does this mean for all Homo Sapiens? Outrage to all Japanese square water melons and German Smart cars that took unbearably long to immerse themselves into the American markets. But the question still stands: "why oh why did Obi One Kenobi have sex with Oprah while watching Phantom of the Operah?" ---I'm Unlike Pluto, and I make music....fuck.
