Zeds Dead

One of the fastest-rising up-and-comers out of Toronto, ZEDS DEAD is composed of producers DC and Hooks, making some amazing hip-hop-influenced dubstep. DC and Hooks originally joined forces in 2004 as Mass Productions. Influenced by the digging in the crates sampling school of hip hop, Mass Productions released one independent album in the summer of 2007 entitled ‘Fresh Beetz’. It was their first and only release. In the summer of 2009, the duo launched their second collaboration—ZEDS DEAD—turning up the BPM and aiming the bass lines at the dance floor. Since their launch, ZEDS DEAD have released several fan favorites on some of today’s most influential independent electronic dance music labels, including Mad Decent/Jeffree's, Dim Mak, San City High, Basshead and more. As two of the hardest workers in electronic music, ZEDS DEAD’s tireless efforts have earned them an excellent reputation amongst a new generation of producers as artists without borders; genres hold no bearing over their music as they transcend style and form with ease. They have established themselves as a dominant force in EDM circles and have received recognition and praise from tastemakers worldwide, including Skrillex, Diplo, Bassnectar and 12th Planet. Catch them live and you'll know: ZEDS DEAD is here to stay.

The video is a fittingly whimsical claymation visual for the track, and centers around the internet and social media's effect on the youth. The single itself is built around an irresistible piano line and features a candy-coated hook from Rivers Cuomo paired alongside verses from Pusha T. The unlikely pairing is a perfect illustration of the facility with which Zeds Dead blend disparate influences in a unique and compelling way.
 
On the inspiration for the new video, director Chris Ullens says, "Zeds Dead's "Too Young" has a cool style: it attracts you because it's catchy and solid, but then slaps you in the face with the darker lyrics. So I wanted to emulate that in the film: make an attractive and colourful world, but then comment on darker sides …
