Zeds Dead’s Deadbeats label has turned us onto some impressive new artists, with Kid Froopy being one that stands out to us every time. We’ve had the pleasure of linking up with Froopy on premieres for “Dreams” & “Drive Slow,” the title track of his debut EP, Drive Slow, we're excited to be premiering today.

Kid Froopy has had a busy year so far and keeps his output up with this new 8-track project. In addition to his releases on Deadbeats, the newcomer has shared a spree of remixes and linked up with one of our favorite groups Terror Jr to contribute production on their two most recent projects we've had on repeat. Froopy has a distinct sound that's difficult to classify but always leaves us impatiently awaiting his next release. 

He has a way of crafting tracks that are incredibly relaxing while bright and catchy at the same time. The talented artist utilizes his infectious vocals alongside shimmering, mystical production is a dreamlike way that's entirely his own. This is an artist you should become familiar with if you aren’t yet so be sure to check out the full EP, which includes remixes from Niko Blank, umru, Lil Texas and Ducky. To celebrate this debut EP, Froopy will be taking over Beats 1 Radio show HYPERHOUSE for a special guest mix that will be airing Friday Oct. 20 at 12AM EST. Be sure to catch Froopy on tour alongside Terror Jr as well - see dates below. Enjoy!

[PREMIERE] Rising Producer Devault Makes TSIS Debut With Dark Single “Don’t You Want To” Via Zeds Dead’s Label


It’s been roughly a year and a half since Canadian duo Zeds Dead announced the creation of their record label, Deadbeats. The young imprint has been on a tear ever since, signing and premiering artists with impressive sounds across genres. One of the most recent to join the label is Devault, a 21-year-old producer who’s been forging a fresh, future-style signature and drawing increased attention over the past year. Today we’re excited to be premiering the artist’s debut track with Deadbeats, “Don’t You Want To.”

Although he hasn’t been in the game long, Devault shows talent and production skills beyond his years with this release. “Don’t You Want To” is both sensual and sinister, with the two feels of the track blending throughout. He takes his time building the various dark elements of the track that pair well with haunting vocals throughout the intro. This nice build leads into a surprisingly high-energy drop, with a prominent synth pattern and chopped up vocals taking center stage. Altogether, “Don’t You Want To” is the perfect fit for Deadbeats, and we’re looking forward to seeing how Devault grows from here. Check it out below and enjoy!
