What do you get when you take two guys with a deep love of hip-hop and match them with ingenuity, production skills and the on-stage flavor of two emcees? DC and Hooks are the dudes that make up Zeds Dead, a Mad Decent duo that knows how to make their crowd move from the first second of their set until the last bassline thumps. 

We caught up with the pair during the Mad Decent Block Party in Toronto to find out a little bit more about their music, their influences and what the new frontier of electronic music really looks like.

Check out the video above and get at them on Twitter for the latest releases and updates.
