The Deadbeat FM DJ/Producer duo is dedicated to bringing a vulgar new sound to the tech scene. They are the unholy union of notorious psy-trance scoundrel, Deliriant (Shane), with several international releases under his belt, and Johnny Rook (Piers), the shady breaks peddler from the seediest bars downtown.
The Deadbeat FM sound is not tied down by genre, but delves mostly into the grimy underworld of techno and tech house; making use of dirty bass lines, fat kicks and huge drums & percussion, often with a driving yet minimalist undertone.
Being the first South African outfit to make it onto the exclusive UK record label LOT49, the Joburg based duo is making waves internationally. The hit EP "When I get outta here" spent over a week on Beatport as the Number 1 download of LOT49, and is still sitting pretty in the Top 10 at the moment.
