DC and Hooks are Zeds Dead. They first hooked up in 2004 and formed Mass Productions, catering to the digging in the crates sampling school of hip-hop. 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. Zeds Dead has since built a reputation as producers par excellence with only a handful of releases und...er their belt. 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 the EDM world and have received recognition and praise from tastemakers all over the globe. With a slew of originals and remixes set to be released in 2011, Hooks and DC show no signs of slowing down. Catch them live and you’ll know: Zeds Dead is here to stay.

Night Kids
This is a story of four strangers who all lead completely separate, though similar, lives. Each of them grew weary of their repetitious daily tasks like throwing the screeching alarm clock in the morning, riding the same train with the smellies, and tripping on the same god damn sidewalk crack in front of the admissions building. Daytime was a bitch. It was time for a change, but how?

Little did they know, every midnight, a mysterious, brain-invading owl had been stopping by their tiny apartments, watching them sleep. He would chant and give them nightmares of waking up 20 minutes late to class, a boss screaming because of frequent tardiness, and coffee that tasted just a bit like ass; they were all morning miseries. It shook the four of them to their very core.

One faithful midnight, the owl finally spoke, "Wake up my children. Your time is now. Go forth and brain-fuck just like I have done with you. Take your tools, your instruments of pleasure and joy, and fly." Shortly after the speech, the owl was shot and killed by city officials after numerous complaints from the old people next door, but his message lived on.

As both producers and DJs, Night Kids have learned to create a hard hitting sound that will capture your body in movement. These kids will surely satisfy your taste buds and put the "aiite" back in night (nice).

Keep the message alive: Fuck you, daytime.
