Production/DJ duo DC and Hooks, better known as Zeds Dead have announced their "Altered States" Fall tour. The bus tour will hit more than 35 dates in a six week period, bringing along a huge new stage production that will be revealed of the coming months. Since their inception in 2009, Zeds Dead have proved themselves to be one of the most versatile groups around, continually pushing the boundaries of electronic music, including working with acclaimed Black Swan choreographer Benjamin Millepied for their "Demons" Video, touring with Odd Future's Tyler the Creator and Earl Sweatshirt, headlining multiple dates on this year's Mad Decent Block Party, and rocking uncompromising main stage sets at countless festivals around the world, including Spring Awakening, Lollapalooza Chile and Brazil, I Love Techno Belgium and France, and Future Music Festival in Australia.
Born in Nantes 18 years ago, Hugo Leclercq aka Madeon was introduced to electronic music aged 11, when he came upon a documentary about Daft Punk. A year later, he began learning how to make music. He posted some of his tracks online, but declined label requests to release them and other artist’s offers of remix work. Instead, he entered an online remix competition for drum’n’bass band Pendulum. His repositioning of their ‘The Island’ as tough, sparkling house won whilst his remixes on the Yelle “Que Veux Tu” and Deadmau5 “Raise Your Weapon” singles further raised his profile with support from of Annie Mac, Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, Steve Angello, Pete Tong, Deadmau5, Alan Braxe, Chase & Status, Skrillex, Knife Party, Porter Robinson, Zedd, Diplo, Martin Solveig, etc.
Seemingly out of nowhere, RL Grime has risen the ranks to the forefront of what is undoubtedly the future of electronic music. His debut EP Grapes, which included remixes from Shlohmo, Salva, and LOL Boys was released in April 2012, and within a month he had the world begging for more. RL followed with the international club anthem “Trap On Acid”, and immediately garnered the support of Diplo, A-Trak, Flosstradamus, 12th Planet, to name a few. Since then, he has released yet another global shaker: his bootleg “Mercy” remix collaboration with LA based producer Salva. The track had 120,000 spins on Soundcloud in 2 days. RL Grime is reshaping electronic production. His melodically infused, Houston influenced flavor is connecting the roots of southern hip hop with the new age of electronic dance music and in turn dictating our understanding of what it means to be a 21st century producer.
