Zeds Dead’s Deadbeats Radio 029 surveys the full spectrum of Drum n’ Bass

Zeds Dead has never sacrificed quality in their weekly radio show output. Following an announcement they’d be taking time away from touring to focus on their Deadbeats radio show, the Toronto duo has delivered another robust mix. Every few weeks or so, the boys keep their mixes fresh by introducing special guests or special themed mixes, such as their dubstep throwback episode.

Zeds Dead have taken on a “Drum n’ Bass Special” for the 29th episode of their Deadbeats radio show. The entire hour-long mix is an ode to their personal inspirations in the genre over the span of twenty years. Featuring nods to Noisia‘s “Could This Be” to Adam F’s “Circles,” Zeds Dead are vocal about the DnB artists who’ve had an influence on their own sound design as they began crossing over from hip-hop into electronic music.

“Coming from making hip-hop, drum n’ bass is double the speed of hip-hop and it was the first sort of gateway drug for us into electronic music, and it was cool because a lot of drum n’ bass people were remixing hip-hop songs and it had kind of the same attitude, back then at least. So it was sort of the natural progression and it was the sound designs and textures and insane production quality that really attracted us to it, and we wanted to use those sound in different ways, it inspired us to up our production game, and I think anyone who listens to drum n’ bass has a really high standard for beat making.”

The mix also features Zeds Dead’s monstrous collaboration with Jauz, “Lights Go Down,” and their special DnB flip of Drake‘s “No Tellin’.” The boys also reveal that they are going to start doing many more themed episodes in the future.
