Deadbeat Music (BLKRZ / Echocord / Berlin) Album Release Tour LIVE-SET
After a remarkable performance at the NoName Festival in 2016, Scott Monteith a.k.a. Deadbeat returns to the east of Belgium on March 31st. This time, he will be presenting his upcoming album ‘Wax Poetic For This Our Great Resolve’ live. This will definitely be a concert not to be missed, since Monteith’s performances are always of exceptional quality, defined by an inimitable dubby groove.
“Musically the album sees Monteith taking his well honed sound design abilities and wide screen arrangements to new heights, and exploring a deep interest in traditional analog recording methods to mesmerizing effect. Every sound on the record, whether generated from his tried and tested array of software based tools, or from the enormous collection of guitars, organs, pianos, and percussion instruments found in the Berlin based studio he now calls home, was recorded via microphone. Even as the very first track slowly fades into existence, it’s clear that the smoke filled atmosphere of the place has penetrated the recordings to their very core. Indeed, it is no understatement to suggest that without the physical confines of the magical studio Chez Cherie, and the countless late night conversations and musical input from all the other beautiful souls who occupy it (T. Raumschmiere, Ben Laubner, Tilman Hopf, PC Christensen, and of course Cherie herself), this latest Deadbeat album would have been an impossibility. “ – Scott Monteith a.k.a. Deadbeat
