No really...Zed's Dead, baby...Do I have to say it again?

Camp Bisco has been tweeting and posting all about the artist of the week, Zed’s Dead, a Canadian duo that has a really great “rags to riches” sort of story (if you follow their tweets, then you may have caught the video interview). With the sounds they were producing, Diplo and Mad Decent picked them up and they continue to gain a loyal and large audience.

I’ve been to a few New York shows and saw their set at last year’s totally overpopulated Starscape, but their appearance at the Mad Decent Block Party at South Street Seaport was definitely a fun time. It was very interesting to see the reactions of NY tourists and families to the whole thing (huh? dubstep?). White Satin is a great track, but I really, really love this one (something about flaying you alive—so creepy):

Here’s a newer track off their latest EP “Inspected:”

They are definitely talented, and from my experiences, they put on a good show. I can’t wait to see them (it’s been almost a year) at this year’s Camp. If you want to explore a little more, follow their Twitter and Facebook. If you really want to see more right this minute, there’s a full video of Zed’s Dead’s Ultra 2012 performance.

And just so you know:
