Zeds Dead Will Blow Your Brains Out With Bass at the Fillmore Miami Beach September 2

Who's Zed?

He's dead. His brains got blown out by bass. And two Toronto dubsteppers named DC and Hooks pulled the trigger.

Coming together in 2009, after an earlier collaborative project called Mass Productions went kaput, the Zeds Dead dudes have been stretching the limits of dubstep for almost three years now.

They started by launching a weekly destruction session named BassMentality alongside fellow low-end assassins Killabits. Then they made essential underground connects with dubstep scene heavies like Nero, Skrillex, 12th Planet, Borgore, Mary Anne Hobbs, Plastician, and Netsky. And now, like a couple of natural-born club killers with an incurably bad case of beatlust, DC and Hooks stalk their way from city to city seeking out fresh prey.

And thanks to all this rabid touring, they've started to become internationally known perpetrators of unconscionable dance-floor violence, dropping dirty wobble, hacking it up with hammer fists, hitting the filthiest frequencies, dragging the BPMs down to a slo-mo grind, and then ratcheting it back to brutal superspeed.

So now you've been warned: Zed is dead. And you could be next.

Zeds Dead. Friday, September 2. Fillmore Miami Beach, 1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach. The brutal bass begins at 9 p.m. and tickets cost $20 plus fees via livenation.com. All ages. Call 305-673-7300 or visit fillmoremb.com.
