In 2016, Zeds Dead launched their tastemaker Deadbeats Records, one of today’s leading independent labels in dance music, with +150 releases from emerging artists like DNMO, PEEKABOO, Subtronics, 1788-L and others. Deadbeats has released a handful of compilations: We Are Deadbeats (Vol. 1 - Vol. 4), which feature original tracks from its wide artist roster, including REZZ, Megalodon and Zeds Dead themselves.
Zeds Dead and Deadbeats have recently expanded into the live events space via the branded Deadbeats Tour and the annual DeadRocks, a headlining show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver, which has sold out every year since launching in 2014.
