Dead Horse Beats
Dartmouth, Nova Scotia
Dead Horse Beats is a Montreal-based producer known for his blend of skewed layers of eclectic samples and live instrumentation.
His regular forays in sampling include 2011’s Sounds of the Swing Era which drew from swing songs recorded during the Second World War; 2012’s Vespers: an album of gospel reworks, and 2013’s Chains ‘Round My Legs: an album drawing samples from 1940s era prison work songs.
DHB’s live show is a high energy spectacle which features bassy percussive hip hop tracks infused instrumentation on guitar, drums, synthesizer and vocals. He has shared the stage with the likes of RJD2, C2C, XXYYXX, Rustie, and Emancipator and has seen Space Jam more than 100 times.
