Deadboy Streams Full Upcoming 'Return' EP for Numbers
- Words: Glenn Jackson
Earlier this month, Deadboy revealed plans to return to the excellent Numbers imprint with a new EP, sharing a slow-paced video for the record's beatless title track. Now, with the London producer's Return EP set to drop next week, a full stream of the upcoming effort has surfaced.
As it turns out, the four-track record is not an entirely ambient affair, as the densely rich "Return" gives way to three club-minded tracks more aligned with Deadboy's established catalog—"Des Niles" leans towards the disco side of glowing house, "YHVH" presents sharp chords and glitched vocals alongside streaking UKG rhythms, and the closing "Life Code" dips into topical half-time. Set to officially drop on April 28, Deadboy's full Return EP can be streamed below.
