September 9, 2022 was a big day for Zeds Dead after releasing “The Machines” a very awaited set ID and collaboration with Deadbeats mainstay, Blanke. This Toronto duo has been in the industry for 13 years and continue to prove their innovative creative talent in the electronic music scene. They have helped define dubstep sound in America in the early 2000s in Toronto becoming a widespread home for the idea of the North American dubstep. Following their recent singles, “I Took A Ride,” and ” In My Head,” they have released this next single ahead of the Deadbeats Nationwide tour. The collaboration marks the fourth official release from the pair this year following their collab with Blunts & Blondes. Zeds Dead recently played their new song “The Machines” live at Red Rocks with Blanke. Zeds Dead wants to continue to play out the year with their hottest banger and keep the vibe going. Zeds Dead have kicked off their tour in July with two sold out shows at Red Rocks amphitheater followed by a takeover at the Brooklyn Mirage. Their shows are known for being unique and diverse across the electro industry traveling to the most iconic venues across the country such as Detroit’s Masonic Temple, WaMu Theatre in Seattle, The Shrine in LA and many others.

This song definitely fits into spooky season. It starts off slow with a crumpling noise, very ASMR then immediately a voice over that sounds like a creepy ride operator announcing that you are entering a dangerous territory and everything is operated by machines. The beat starts to fasten and pump as if mimicking the sound of a heartbeat. “The Machines” feels like a song you could play in a scary movie while the killer is chasing after the victim. Gives off very chilling vibes, which is not something you get from a song very often. That in itself just shows the how different Zeds Dead are compared to other artists in the electronic world. It is different but still fits in the realm of mixing beats and sounds that really stand out.

The music video is trippy, visually stimulating and really ties in the spooky factor that the song gives off when listening to it. The video has a lot of moving parts with robots, really capturing an I Am Legend aesthetic. It is very different and very interesting. Check it out for yourself down below.
