You could describe Deadboy’s music as heartache for the dancefloor. Tapping into London’s rich musical heritage from Scott Walker to early 90’s Hardcore all the way through to UK Garage and House, Deadboy’s tracks somehow still share the same sense of futuristic melancholia as the first wave of Detroit Techno by the likes of Derrick May and Juan Atkins.

Outside of Numbers, Deadboy spins R&B under the name of DJ Tearjerker and is one half of gameboy dancehall act Hyper Black Bass.
