Zeds Dead

Zeds Dead remakes the dance floor into its own image. That’s a rarity in the world of electronic music. Even with the infinite possibilities of modern technology, most here-and-now club banging is defined not by individuality, but how much it sounds alike. That’s what sets this Canadian duo apart from the rest of the partying pack: It has managed to find its own voice. The 2014 release, “Something Else,” incorporates the base elements of house, glitch, hip-hop and dub step and uses them instead of being used by them. They have Aphex Twin’s sense of fiendish unpredictability bobbing and weaving in their beats, which gives them an empirical edge. Zeds Dead brings its research and development to the National on Saturday, Nov. 29, with opening sets by 2RIP, Trey Justice, Dook and D-Rez. Doors open at 8 p.m. Admission is $25-$30. thenationalva.com.
