Deadbeat
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, he has been nothing if not deeply prolific. The Canadian-born, Berlin-based producer's 11 Deadbeat albums and more than two-dozen singles represent one of most prolific and consistently rewarding catalogues in 21st century electronic-music canon. It's a spectacular run of records that continues to hit new heights with each new release.

As a DJ, Monteith is a dub archivist second to none, with a collection spanning the genre's early Jamaican roots, through the diverse 80s and 90s configurations championed in the UK and Europe, to the current crop of producers worldwide pushing the sound into previously unheard directions and widely divergent rhythmic structures. This was most clearly highlighted with the release of his critically acclaimed DJ mix Radio Rothko in 2010, rated by Resident Advisor amongst others as one of the most genre defining mix CDs of all time.

In addition to his production and performance activities, his skills as an educational speaker and workshop leader have been regularly called upon by the world renowned Red Bull Music Academy, as well as technology leaders such as Microsoft and Ableton among others. A tireless innovator of vast creative vision, 15 years on Scott Monteith's restless creative spirit shows no signs of being quieted for many years to come.
