DC and Hooks are at it again with the second part of Zeds Decade mix from their Deadbeats SoundCloud shop. Zeds Dead formed in 2009, finding flagship touring success in EDM’s bass-burgeoning underbelly throughout the decade. They tout a deliciously strange taste in sounds with hefty sub frequencies, so to hear what these two princes of bass have to say about their favorite music from the decade is certainly an insightful treat.
The beginning of the mix is introduced as an ode to deadmau5 and Noisia, both huge influences for the Deadbeats label bosses in this decade, with the drum ‘n’ bass trendsetters’ heavy-hitting remix of the mau5trap label bosses’ “Raise Your Weapon.” Then the mix courses through an eclectic array of styles from Jamie XX to Tyler The Creator and Emalkay into Santigold into Taska Black into Branchez into NERO into “Griztronics” into Skrillex. This wide variety of decade favorites showcases the hip-hop crossed into melodic bass era from one of dubstep’s most prized possessions.
Below is part one for posterity sake.
