After two huge sell outs, Grizzled proudly present the third installment in the ultimate bass party series.
Big Acts, Big Bass, Big Venues.
For our third show we are proud to welcome the Canadian superstars ZEDS DEAD for their Perth Performance Debut! They will also be joined by special guest KITO the first lady of Australian dubstep!
We will be taking over the OVERFLOW behind the Court Hotel for our first ever outdoor Grizzled, taking the bass out into the sunshine and finishing under the summer sky...
Allow us to introduce you to one of electronic music’s most promising new acts, Zeds Dead. The truth is, however, Toronto-based Zeds Dead (AKA DC and Hooks) needs no introduction to the legions of fans that have been on to the electronic/dubstep/progressive duo for the better part of two years.
Through positive world of mouth, massive YouTube hits, support from top jocks and a never ending string of tour dates - to cities big and small - Zeds Dead has become one of the most exciting acts of 2011 and a true phenomenon.
Zeds Dead's productions can be heard in sets from artists like Diplo, Rusko, Skrillex, and Bassnectar with Kissy Sellout calling Zeds Dead "the future of genres...flipping genius." In November 2010, Kissy Sellout’s label San City High released Zed's Dead's first official single and the title track, "Rudeboy", reached #7 on the Beatport Dubstep Charts only 48 hours after its release. Their productions have garnered tens of millions of hits on youtube, and their remix of “Eyes on Fire” is the single most-viewed production on the UKF channel
Characterised by a pop-infused, fresh and precisely clean production style, Kito’s music has received support globally from a number of leading DJs and producers. Having had her first completed tracks picked up by none other than Dubstep pioneer and figurehead, Skream, and released on his label Disfugured Dubz, Kito hit the ground running.
Since her first release in 2009, Australian born Maaike Lebbing has gone from strength to strength. Having gained a lot of support and attention for her 12” and 4 track self-titled EP on Disfigured Dubz; Kito teamed up with vocalist and long term friend, Reija Lee and released a 4 track EP, ‘Sweet Talk’ on Diplo’s hugely influential label, Mad Decent. Sweet Talk went on to gain a lot of support on UK’s BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra along with Australia’s national station, Triple J. The title track also sat comfortably at second place for a number of weeks in the Dubstep Beatport Chart.
Following on from Sweet Talk, 2011 has seen Kito further develop her partnership with Reija Lee. The duo remixed Spor’s track Pacifica which was released on his imprint Lifted earlier this year. The Pacifica EP jumped straight to number 7 on the iTunes Electronic Dance Chart.
Kito’s ethos is quality - not quantity and her back catalogue reflects this worth ethic. With an already large and ever-growing fan base and encouraging articles and reviews from publications such as The Guardian, NME, Knowledge and In The Mix plus guest mixes on Radio 1, Triple J, Rinse FM amongst others - it is clear big things are in store for this young artist.
