Zeds Dead, 'Ratchet': Free Facebook Download
Own the Toronto duo’s NSFW remix of Juicy J's strip club jam.
A few weeks back, Toronto duo Zeds Dead gifted CODE readers with a free download of “Demons” from their Mad Decent EP “Hot Sauce.” DC and Hooks are feeling generous yet again, this time to mark a social media milestone: 400,000 Facebook fans.
Congrats, gents. New tune “Ratchet” -- which you can snag below by hitting the download button and liking their Facebook page -- leaves no doubt that dubstep, hip-hop, and glitch are now one whole genre, and could easily become ubiquitous across American EDM Nation.
Replete with a vaguely misogynistic (yet somehow sage?) lyrical hook sampled from rapper Juicy J’s “Bandz A Make Her Dance,” the track brings the bleeps, drops the bass, and rings the alarm for two and a half unapologetic minutes. Beneath the simple production are some carefully hidden tricks that leave the remix door wide open.
If the rumors of a Beyonce/Lady Gaga/Rihanna/Azealia Banks collaboration titled “Ratchet” are true, then Zeds Dead has successfully seeded the ravers for its arrival.
