Seven years into their wide-reaching career, Zeds Dead launched their own independent label, Deadbeats, back in February 2016. A tastemaker label having propelled the careers of artists such as Subtronics, PEEKABOO, 1788-L, and more, the Deadbeats family are proudly celebrating their five-year anniversary with the launch of a brand new label, Altered States.
A new musical home focused on championing electronic, chill, and downtempo sounds, Altered States launches with Catching Z’s, a 13-track mixtape of brand new original music from the two North American bass music pioneers. First beginning as a mix series dating back four years, Catching Z’s showcases a deeper, more delicate side of Zeds Dead’s production. Ripe with highly diverse and nuanced Zeds Dead sound, Catching Z’s is a compelling looking glass into what is yet to come from the Toronto-based duo’s newest exciting label endeavor.
From dubstep to drum-n-bass to house, Zeds Dead’s genre-defying sounds, and by proxy their Deadbeats imprint, have never been pigeonholed into a singular style. Carrying the launch of a new division of Deadbeats focused on exploring a diverse range of experimental electronic music, Zeds Dead proudly unveils the inauguration of their newly-minted record label with with Altered States’ inaugural single, “late night drive,” out Friday, March 5.
Catching Z’s will be available for streaming and purchase on Friday, March 26.
