Deadbeats delivers their compilation We Are Deadbeats Vol. 5 and what a journey it is! The Toronto-based label, founded by Zeds Dead, debuted the compilation in 2017, providing another platform for talent of rising artists. Now, the culmination of extensive efforts has led to a glimpse at the future of bass music.

 We Are Deadbeats Vol. 5 spans 18 mind-bending tracks from some of 2022’s hottest up-and-coming acts. The extensive compilation is riddled with a mixture of mystical, ominous, and unwavering bass music. This fifth edition fosters an array of artists across the electronic music industry. Newcomers such as Smoakland and Zingara extend their production prowess, while underground favorites such as NotLö, Tape B and more continue to rise through the ranks. Standouts for me include “Murda” by MYTHM, “Darkness Interim” by Wave legend Deadcrow, and “Elite,” the collaboration by Abelation and Saka. The compilation also features capshun, spüke, Farrah, not yes, So Dope, TINYKVT, sfam, So Sus, eugene, BLXK MNTN, TWONSKi, and Age Of Espion. 

The experimentation amongst the compilation indicates that these artists are willing to break out of the mold. Risks are meant to be taken in music, and each artist accomplishes that admirably. Overall, if We Are Deadbeats Vol. 5 is any indication of the future of bass music, we are in for a wild ride!

More about Deadbeats

Nearly 13 Years into their careers, Zeds Dead continue to prove they are among the most innovative and influential artists in electronic music. Deadbeats has become a widespread home for the idea of North American dubstep, while playing host to a diverse cast of artists and styles of bass music. This openness to explore culture trends and work with its creators led to the birth of Altered States, which further adventures into a wide array of sonic stylings like house music.

Zeds Dead has helped define vintage dubstep sound in America; popularizing the genre in the late 00s out of Toronto. Generations of artists count the Canadian duo among their biggest inspirations, fueled by the creation of the Deadbeats and Altered States labels.
