Deadbeats Drops Lineup For New 2018 Tour & It's Absolutely Massive
Feel like you miss Mad Decent Block Party? Deadbeats has you covered.
Having already conquered the bass world on their own, Zeds Dead created their own label called Deadbeats which continues to push boundaries in the label and events world. For the second year running, the Deadbeats Tour will travel across North America with a rotating lineup of artists, and this year is especially tasty.
With over 50 artists on the lineup, including Rezz, Doctor P, Borgore, Joker, Sub Focus, Um.., Gammer, Barely Alive, Andy C, Cray, Ekali, KRANE, Rusko, and more, it doesn’t matter what date you end up going. Chances are, you’re still going to see one of the best shows of your life. Each tour date features a different lineup unique to each city with 5-7 different artists.
Zeds Dead shares, “We’re creating our own world people! A Deadbeats world where there are no borders and all are welcome. We haven’t figured out how all that will work out but we can start small, with a world of music and art, fun and games, and of course you! Let’s create this world together and immerse ourselves in it for a couple of hours.”
Forthcoming Deadbeats releases include Shades, Space Jesus, Chuurch, LICK, um.., and a highly anticipated third installment of their We Are Deadbeats compilation series. Ticket link and tour dates below.

Reddit's r/Trap Reveals Best Artist, Remix & Song of 2017
Nearly a month into January, and /r/trap has finally released the results their . And if there’s one takeaway from this year’s results, it’s that Boombox Cartel had a great year.
The duo was awarded the titles Best Original Track, Best Collaboration (with Graves), Best EP (Cartel), and Best Artist. They were also runner up for Best Mix, with Dia de los Muertos 2.
The rest the awards went to the usual suspects like Skrillex, Flume, KRANE, RL Grime, and OWSLA. No doubt with a new tour and album coming in 2018, What So Not will reclaim at least one these categories.
