Bainbridge & High Zombie
Inspired by the healing powers of music, High Zombie is a dubstep artist whose two-sided identity is a nod to everyone’s inner demons. His music brings life into the partially undead and channels the vices we all battle between the good and the evil of existence.
From Fairfield, Connecticut, Matthew Hood’s music came about by a passion for pop punk and metal — his background as a drummer contributes to the creative process of making music. Self-described as molding a lump of clay into a vase, High Zombie is influenced by artists who have built their music from nothing to something.
Early High Zombie began with basic trap music, even turning experimental at points; he hopped on the hybrid game in 2017 and rode it into modern dubstep today. Identifying with both the “high” and the “zombie,” hints of both darkness and symphonic styles emerge from his music today.
Backed by artists like Excision, Kayzo, Jauz, Borgore and Marshmello, High Zombie was also featured on the Lost Lands 2019 Compilation and has several forthcoming releases on labels including DSV Audio, Bassweight Records and more. His tracks have accumulated millions of plays and even topped charts in countries like Guatemala and Venezuela. Besides his outstanding collaboration, BRIKZ with BAINBRIDGE, more are on the horizon with SHARPS and some of the biggest names in dubstep.
As a certified Ableton instructor, some of his most memorable experiences include seeing his clients become massive and get recognized in big ways. Hearing the crowd chant his name as a headliner at Temple Nightclub in Denver was a stand-out career moment. On the horizon are goals including an album release, a tour and the debut of a creative project that shares his double-sided identity.
