International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music

A master of crackly worlds of dub, undulating reggae scorchers and forward-thinking percussive experimentations, Deadbeat manipulates sonic space with impressive technical command and melodic dexterity. Whether crafting kaleidoscopic house and chugging deep techno or tar-thick, impossibly weighty minimalism, his output is at once soft and hard.

Best known by his Deadbeat moniker, Monteith spent a few years sharpening his focus in Montréal before taking up residence in Berlin. Since the early aughts, he has produced countless EPs as well as ten studio albums of dub-laden, minimal electronics for standout labels such as Echocord and Wagon Repair. His also founded his own BLKRTZ imprint, in a move inspired by his past experiences with community-minded labels like ~scape. Extremely tight quality control, astonishing sound design and adventurous digital production techniques have made him a household name in the areas of techno and dub-inflected electronic music. On his latest full length, 2018’s Wax Poetic For This Our Great Resolve, Deadbeat gets political, crafting expansive, dubwise rhythms around anti-Trump “monologues of hope” from 17 different contributors.
