Zeds Dead is a Canadian electronic music duo from Toronto, Canada composed of Dylan Mamid, also known as DC, and Zachary Rapp-Rovan, also known as Hooks, who rose to prominence releasing original music and remixes from 2009–10 before becoming a staple on the international touring circuit thereafter. Today, they are known for their exploration of a diverse variety of genres that combine aspects of UK garage, house, electro house, hip-hop, glitch, drum and bass, and more. Mamid and Rapp-Rovan were born and raised in Toronto, Canada. The duo was introduced through mutual friends in 2004 when DC asked Hooks to paint a graffiti mural in his garage. They quickly discovered a mutual love for hip-hop and at the same time, we’re both starting to produce music. They began to collaborate under the moniker ‘Mass Productions’. The duo’s name comes from a line in the Quentin Tarantino film Pulp Fiction. Here are all of Zeds Dead’s albums ranked.

5. We Are Deadbeats (2020)
“Zeds Dead rarely disappoint. They’ve been consistent in the bass EDM scene for many years, and something I enjoy about them is that their development in their style has never felt like they’re catering to trends, it’s always felt like genuine development of their art. I love Bass forms of all of EDM, Bass House, Brostep, Drum and Bass, even trap sometimes! This album delivers a really interesting array of all these genres, which makes for a really nice journey through the album. If you like bass music check it out”
4. Catching Z’s (2021)
“It’s dubstep based on chillwave and chillstep. There is nothing really that great about it or nothing too terrible about it. It’s pleasant when it’s on, but it’s utterly forgettable when it’s over.”
3. Lift You Up (2019)
“Album was a good idea, but there was a lot of missed opportunity for better songs and more genres. Can we get some more remixes by different artists? Boys Noize, Frequencerz, BURNS, or Paces? Heck, even a DESERT STAR or Infected Mushroom remix would be perfect. Make it happen, people.”

2. Lights Go Down (2018)
“One of the Dubstep names Zeds Dead banging this heavy bass music in drum and bass ! nice changing subgenres and i waiting for next collabs or solo tracks”
1. Northern Lights (2016)
“Great album! A lot of good collaborations. Zeds Dead is one of my favorite DJ groups out of the dubstep era. I’m sad they don’t have any tour dates around Georgia, for this album. Overall this album is slower and more mellow, but there are still some hard-hitting songs on there.”
