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!

Rising Artist Kid Froopy Delivers Refreshing Indie Electronic Single "Down" Via Deadbeats

Kid Froopy Down Art

Rising artist Kid Froopy is someone we've been excited about this past year. Following a spree of high quality singles, the talented producer is back with another single "Down" off his forthcoming debut project Drive Slow EP.

Like other releases from Froopy, this single and the full project are coming via Zeds Dead's Deadbeats label. The label has been putting us on to some really great artists across different genres with their diverse signings bringing artists like Kid Froopy into our spotlight although his music is much more laidback than you'd expect from a Zeds Dead signee.

We've had the pleasure of premiering several Froopy tracks like "Dreams" and "Drive Slow" and for those of you who are familiar with Terror JR, Froopy is actually involved with production on some of their tracks. This new single "Down" is a bright indie electronic track utilizing relaxed, sometimes distorted vocals and vibrant, bouncing production that has a feel good vibe throughout. Enjoy!

Zeds Dead Releases 9-Track Deadbeats Compilation 1

ZD Press Shot Deadbeats
Yesterday (Feb. 9), Zeds Dead shared Memorecks' single "Raging Dreams" off their label's first ever Deadbeats compilation. Today we have the nine-track compilation in full for you to stream and it features some of our favorite artists.
 
It features a wide away from artists coming from all different genres which makes sense as Zeds Dead has always been known for sharing all sorts of music with their fans. Their Northern Lights EP is the perfect example of this. Artists part of Deadbeats' first compilation include Rezz, Pusher, Nebbra and his single "You", SMLE, Megalodon and several others.
 
We're also gifted with a brand new song from Zeds Dead themselves called "Women Wine" and it's absolutely fire. It playfully starts off with a cork pop before entering a reggae-based sequence that transitions into gritty dubstep synths grinding against one another. As the song progresses, it only gets heavier so be sure to listen until the very end.
 
Zeds Dead's Deadbeats imprint hasn't been around for all that long but based off their debut LP the release of Nebbra's debut EP and now this diverse collection of tracks, the future seems bright for their label. Stream volume one in it's entirety below and enjoy!
