Zeds Dead LIVE REVIEW & Concert PHOTOS | “An Explosive Climax of Ecstatic Winning” | Venue 578, Orlando, Fl | August 6, 2015

by • August 17, 2015

I hope you were at Venue 578 the night of August 6th, so you were able to witness the brutal onslaught of nuclear, face-melting bass that Zeds Dead bombarded us with! That was some of the thickest bass I’ve ever been exposed to. It was the kind of bass that makes your nose hairs dance—so thick you almost feel like you need arm floaties so you can stay adrift above the madness. Add to that the energy of a completely sold out show with nothing but fun-loving party-heads, and this was one of my top EDM shows ever!

This was my first live Zeds Dead experience, so I wasn’t aware of how beastly the rampage would get, but the holy nectar of the bass gods was indeed delivered with maximum rage.

I love when a dubstep artist knows how to build and time a drop just right. There is a real art to the drop, and it’s something that can be an explosive climax of ecstatic winning, or it can cause a severely disappointing case of musical blue balls that immediately disconnects the energy exchange with a crowd. You know what I’m talking about I’m sure. This is something that I’ve noticed can be a real challenge among some EDM producers, but fortunately, not with Zeds Dead. Their performance gave me the adrenaline of King Kong tearing off steel chains and pounding a crater into the earth before taking on a whole battalion of army tanks. It was liberating to be able to throw that much energy back to the artists through dance.

Zeds Dead’s music conjured to my mind images of laser beams buzz-sawing rapid-fire cross sections of glaciers and slow motion atomic mushroom clouds rising with strobing flashes of lightning. This is the kind of stuff that should be labelled with a biohazard symbol and a skull for fair warning.

For real though, one of the things that really impressed me about Zeds Dead’s stage presence was that they communicated with us consistently. This is something that I think is important for a genre of music that can easily lack the live human element. They have just the right balance of man and machine.

My favorite part of their set was when they told us all to crouch down low for a build-up. To my surprise, I did not see a single person standing up. We all waited for the swell to come to a head, and BOOM!!! The whole place jumped up and became an unstoppable riot when the drop finally hit! I couldn’t stop smiling and laughing from the joy of the moment as it was happening! What a success! 🙂

To be honest, I had been taking a break from EDM for awhile now because I wasn’t enjoying the direction a lot of artists were starting to go in on the trap bandwagon. But, this show was extremely satisfying and completely revived my interest in the electronic music scene. What a relief it is to know that good dubstep is still being produced!

If you’re a fan of fat bass womps that make your face cringe and you like to pretend like you’re stomping on cities like a giant, ravenous monster, definitely go check out Zeds Dead next time they roll through your area. You will be glad you did, trust me!
