Podcast 134: Deadboy

Although he only has two singles to his name, in the swiftly moving world of UK bass music, Southeast London DJ/producer Deadboy is practically a veteran. After the appearance of his sublime U Cheated EP, the Numbers squad snatched him up and released the even bigger "If U Want Me," which solidified his penchant for swinging garage beats and pitch-shifted vocal snippets. Those loves are readily apparent throughout this exclusive mix, as off-kilter percussion and diva-ish vocal drops populate nearly every track, whether it's an unreleased white label on Well Rounded—a label Wooten helps run—or an old-school classic. Not many DJs in this scene are dipping into the Basic Channel catalog, so Deadboy clearly knows his stuff. We're anxiously awaiting to hear more from this young producer—new song "Here 4 U" is sounding BIG—but this podcast should help tide us over in the meantime.
