Alexandre Trochut

Zeds Dead have just released their highly-anticipated debut album Northern Lights via their own Deadbeats label. Zeds Dead enlisted artists such as Rivers Cuomo, Pusha T, Jadakiss, Styles P, Charlotte OC, Elliphant, Diplo, NGHTMRE, Dragonette, and Twin Shadow amongst others.

Standout singles like “Blame” with Diplo and Elliphant, “Stardust” with Twin Shadow, “Too Young” with Rivers Cuomo and Pusha T, “Symphony” with Charlotte OC, and “Frontlines” with NGHTMRE and GG Magree have earned critical acclaim from esteemed outlets such as NPR, Rolling Stone, The New York Times, and Pitchfork while sparking excitement from fans who have eagerly awaited the full album.

Zeds Dead collaborated with Smirnoff Sound Collective on a documentary that delves into their roots in Toronto and explores how the diversity of the music scene in their hometown has influenced the eclecticism of their DJ sets and their album. The documentary also touches on the formation of their own Deadbeats label which will serve as a breeding ground for a diverse array of talent such as Dragonette who features on Northern Lights.

Currently in the midst of a massive world tour which is already selling out, Zeds Dead have completely rebooted their live show and injected it with new energy from their never-before-seen stage show. Be sure to catch them when they come to your area.
