Watch & Listen
The tape reads Biography. Pop it in. Rewind. Press play.
A whiskey-voiced narrator starts speaking as the hazy images come into focus.
“It’s 2010. Zeds Dead is about to play one of their first shows in the basement of a dive bar in Toronto. Behind the brick walls and the unfinished ceiling exposed wires hang freely. The air smells of booze, smoke, and sweat. A crowd is lined up outside, flasks hang from their back pockets and cigarettes from their lips. Abandoned drinks rest on the lip of the dj booth while joints get sparked in the corners.
The tiny room is packed. Nobody quite knows how to describe the music yet. When Hooks and DC start their set the earth trembles. The air becomes charged and almost sexual. Everyone goes crazy. You feel the music in your bones. Your marrow shakes. You don’t know what they will play next but you know it might just change your life. Everybody at those early shows could tell – these guys are gonna be big.”
Fast forward a few scenes. The narrator continues.
“It’s 2013. Zeds Dead is killing it. They’ve got an enormous catalogue that includes remixes for some of the biggest artists out there, and releases with the most credible labels in the game. They’ve accumulated hundreds of millions of views online. They play tours of over 70 dates to hundreds of thousands of people. Fans love their shows, critics love their creativity, and heads love their production. They’re big. Really big.”
Rewind again. Further than before.
“The date’s not important. The place is Toronto, Canada. Teenagers Zack Rapp-Rovan and Dylan Mamid are introduced – they hit it off immediately over a shared love of classic hip hop, music production, and digging through crates. They join forces and call themselves Mass Productions aka MP Records. Dylan becomes DC and Zack becomes Hooks. They work out of DC’s often smoky garage. Critiquing, dissecting and swapping samples. They grow with every tune. They get on a level where their combined sound is unified and strong. MP releases an LP of hip hop instrumentals called Fresh Beets. It’s a pivotal moment for the duo.”
Fast forward a couple chapters.
“It’s 2009 and hip hop is in a coma. Hooks and DC are about to have an epiphany that will change everything. They thirst for something new. They want to make people move to their sounds and not just bob their heads, but to grind, heave, shiver, stomp, and dance to their music. They want to capture the ecstasy and comradery of house, the heart pummelling thrill of Drum and Bass, the beauty of ambient music, and the heaviness of electro – all in one sound. They want to push boundaries. To challenge themselves and their listeners to”–
The movie cuts out. Ribbons of static shimmer across the blackness. Someone has taped over this part. A scene from Pulp Fiction flickers on screen. Butch and Fabienne are sitting on top of a Harley Davidson.
FABIENNE: “Who’s motorcycle is this?”
BUTCH: “Its a chopper, baby.”
FABIENNE: “Who’s chopper is this?”
FABIENNE: “Who’s Zed?”
BUTCH: “Zed’s dead, baby, Zed’s dead.”
The screen goes black.

He reads the crowd and bases his song choice on them. the energy put into his mixing is phenomenal and is unparalleled by none other. Personal preference is electro, house, and the latest dubstep. However this versatile young mind is not afraid to go outside of his comfort zone and make thing stranger than they already are to please the crowd. He loves what he does and make no mistake he thrives on the crowd. This conquering young mind is astounding and relentless with every track making precise mixes with the utmost accuracy to ensure proper key, phrase, and most of all basslin match accordingly and truly shocks the crowd with his unmistakable effects and spectacular performance comparable only to a jackrabbit having a seizure.
Hyper and energetic Strange wastes no time and holds nothing back while playing he tries his hardest to put as many tracks in a set so not to leave any genre untouched, yes even country ;) while maintaining a godlike energy through the speakers. he will most certainly become someone to see and definitely a face to be recognized in the modern dance scene.
