Scott Monteith is a musician, sound artist and music technology educator best known for his work under the stage name Deadbeat. Ever since launching his production career at the turn of the century, the dub techno auteur has been nothing if not deeply prolific. The Canadian-born, Berlin-based producer’s nine Deadbeat albums and nearly two-dozen singles represent one of most prolific and consistently rewarding catalogs in 21st century electronic-music canon. It’s a spectacular run of records that continues to hit new heights with each new release.
