Raised in his “grim, rundown” hometown of Crewe, UK DEADLIFE would spend hours locked away in his room playing games. He has always loved the music from these games and the influences of these stylings can be seen mirrored throughout his work. Between a vivid imagination and a sensitive side, the producer knew that he would come to express his unspoken emotions via the best channel he knew: music. An electronic musician with a classical background, he formed and played drums in a band, playing numerous tours, before he discovered band life wasn’t for him as he felt held back creatively. With a driving force of ambition and passion, DEADLIFE began to explore the world of music production.
DEADLIFE is inspired by soundtracks and classical music as well as modern artists such as Disasterpeace, Justice, deadmau5, Sigur Ros, Refused and Deftones. However, his own work sits in closer comparison to the notorious synthwave works of Justice, Gesaffelstein and SebastiAn.
