Having hinted at upcoming collaborations on BLKRTZ over the last months in several interviews, Deadbeat finally makes good on his promises offering an epic piece of heaviest dub business featuring the unmistakable vocoder stylings of Canadian Danuel Tate of Cobblestone Jazz fame. Title track Lazy Jane locks in a murderously tight 135 bpm steppers rhythm sure to appeal to fans of both the Burial Mix series and Mala’s most head down exploits for DMZ alike, with Tate’s heaven streaking vocal elevating it to the realm of instant classic from the very first drop. The flipside’s 909 dub meanwhile sends the original’s synth and vocal lines deep into the echo chamber atop a reinforced version of the bass line and unrelenting 909 drum pattern to create the most classist, purified slice of big room dub techno you’re likely to here all year.

If this latest EP and rumors of new album for BLKRTZ set to drop in the fall are any indication, prospects for Deadbeat’s seemingly inexhaustible sonic vision are looking very healthy indeed.
