Biography

There are multiple bands using the name Deadbeat:

1.
Though based in Montreal, Deadbeat and his ultra-textured soundscapes made their way around the world, finding large audiences in Europe as well as in North America. Deadbeat producer Scott Monteith is a member of the same fertile Montreal scene that includes such luminaries as Akufen (Marc Leclair) and Algorithm (Jeff Milligan). Like his peers, he gained international acclaim in the early 2000s once the French-Canadian city became a hot spot for (see the Montreal Smoked Meat compilation), thanks partly to the world-reknown Mutek festival as well as a wealth of Montreal-based record labels. Monteith debuted as Deadbeat in July 2000 with the Cesium Beam 12” for Hautec Records and has since recorded for such labels as Revolver, Intr_version, Background, Force Inc., ORAL, Scape, Cynosure, and Clitekture. In addition, he has collaborated with Steve Beaupre as Crackhaus and also with Robert Henke (Monolake) as Atlantic Waves.

Monteith moved to Montreal in 1995 and quickly became enthralled by the city’s underground community of digital musicians and artists, eventually co-founding the multi-media collective Covert Ops. He began recording music as Deadbeat in early 1998 and released his first 12” in 2000.

    The Infinity Dubs are great! They're very different from what he was making 5+ years ago, but are no less imaginative, not generic techno.

    Organ in the Attic That Sings the Blues --- his best song.

    deadbeat totally sold out over the years. i LOVED the early records with the echoes, atmosphere, total dub vibe......but every time he releases something new, it sounds more and more generic and 'dank dank dank' unimaginative techno......what a shame.

    He's built such a body of work now. So many bases covered and all done so well. [2] Loving Acid Wash Genes!

    Discovered Deadbeat last night. Pretty new to this sort of music but I really enjoyed Something Borrowed, Something Blue. Especially the Head Over Heels track.

    i was a little harsh in my last comment... the album is very well produced, and some of the tracks are really damn heavy. but i dunno, it just lacks that special 'deadbeat' flavour. i feel like they could have been made by any number of dubstep/bass/dub producers, almost.

    yep, not feeling this one. the one before was wild - this one is plain and pretty shitty.

    the new album is kind of boring. it's like deadbeat has tried to take his hand to more 'contemporary' styles of music, and it's just stale and generic.
