Deadbeat is Scott Monteith, a long time Montrealer and recent Berlin ex-pat who has been releasing his own special blend of dub-laden, minimal electronics since 2000, for labels such as Cynosure, Musique Risquée, Scape, and Spectral. His work has received consistent acclaim from the industry’s leading publications and websites, and has drawn regular performance invitations for some of the world’s most respected festivals, including Barcelona’s Sonar, Berlin’s Transmediale, and Montreal’s own MUTEK. Whether crafting kaleidoscopic house and techno, snap-clap digital dancehall, or impossibly heavy dub, Scott continues to search for his own unique voice between the ones and zeros.
Deadbeat is supported by Manchester’s Andy Stott who has recently pushed new techno-dub variations since his widely acclaimed album Merciless on Modern Love.
