Yes peeps, the infamous purveyors of dope beats, heavy bass & mellow vibes are back on the block... from the good ol’ days at the garage in nottingham right into your eardrums in 2009.
Most of you will be familiar with their legendary late 90s stand out lounge tunes like " Funky For You ", taken from the groundbreaking longplay album " Lounging " on 20/20 Vision... making it onto heaps of compilations (among them Buddha Bar of course)... getting
THE DEADBEATS some serious remix work for the likes of Richard Dorfmeister’s TOSCA Project (on the " Suzuki In Dub " album or Mark Rae to name but a few).
After a decent chronic break of over half a decade and their lovely contributions to the NIGHTMARES ON WAX prts WAX ON Records comps in 2008 and 2009, damian stanley and his cohorts have finally finished their upcoming album for WAX ON called " Made In The Shade ".... all album tracks decently mixed by Mr. E.A.S.E. (N.O.W.) himself at his lovely WAX ON studios in Ibiza. the recent album pre cursor EP " Loafin’ " got massive support from djs / tastemakers, compiler & radio jocks alike...on a global scale: no doubt, THE DEADBEATS are back indeed - and sure they constantly deliver dope tunes in their trademark sound for real.
On " Made In The Shade ", heavenly downtempo vibes mingle perfectly with soopayummy butter beats, supreme funkyness and overall headnod activity... while both the new single "breathe" as well as the deep house influenced "turtle" also stress the slamming dancefloor pop appeal of THE DEADBEATS in 2009.
Even if its middle eastern (" Pearl ") or Balearic (" La Savina ") influences, THE DEADBEATS do what THE DEADBEATS do... music to make you smile.
with his partner in crime Ged day now more in the business background of things, Damian Stanley holds responsible for the main ideas & the overall concept, with multi instrumentalist David Estella on guitars, bass & keys turning damian’s beats, samples & visions into an ultra delightful musical reality. former DIY Soundsystem member & long term DEADBEATS allie (dj) Emma (kirby) provided vocals and lyrics on "Swing Me Like A HipHop Song" & "Breathe".
yes, the timeless sounds of THE DEADBEATS are made in the shade indeed. WAX ON Records is happy to bring back the purveyors : back for good - and oh so funky for you !
