Everyone can quote it as soon as you hear a mention of Pulp Fiction …” Zed’s dead, baby” and that is where ZEDS DEAD came up with their unique name for the duo composed of producers DC and Hooks. These guys are know for making some of the most amazing hip-hop influenced beats ever since joining forces in 2004 as Mass Productions and getting their influence from digging through crates of hip hop. In 2009, their second collaboration, ZEDS DEAD was founded and cranked up the BPM and aimed for the dance floor. Recently released is the video for their first single from their upcoming LIVING DEAD EP out July 24th and also named Living Dead. It features frequent collaborator, Toronto-based rapper, Omar LinX and epitomizes ZEDS DEAD’s signature dark fantasy, hip-hop influenced beats.
Check out the video featuring actor Peter Green, best known for his role as the infamous Zed, in Quentin Tarintino’s cult classic film Pulp Fiction.
