What do you get when you lock an ambitious Irish lad (Paul Kelly) and a Canadian female vocalist (Nina Knezevic) into a room for too long? What do I know, but this time around out came a fantastic electro duo which goes by the name of Deadbots, lucky us. In case you have not heard of this fearsome twosome yet, the duo is tearing up the club scene at an alarming rate and is just about ready to release their jaw-breaking new EP “Girl On Fire” on Freakz Me Out.

Deadbots’ trademark sound references from 80ies synth pop, rock, disco, hip-hop and techno, and you can hear all these different influences on their up-coming output, whose irresistible catchiness is skillfully built into this rave demon. Expect massive support by numerousimposing colleagues such as Digitalism, Hystereo, Arthur Baker, Hey Today!, and many more. Remixes by former Atari Teenage Riot mastermind Alec Empire, the commander in charge of the German electro-punkscene which he clearly influenced like no other. His rework of the Deadbots track might be surprising but it illustrates his profound knowledge of electronic music. “Girl On Fire” goes retro acid-techno, genius! Another German digital institution must be T.Raumschmiere, also responsible for bad ass electro-punk and the superb label Shitkatapult. His adaptation is a bit more reflective and gives this club-banger a tunefully delightful twist. Chapeau! The rest of the list is just as impressive, be it French producer Tom Deluxx, also in charge of Just A Band, the German veteran Sharam Jey, who has been touring the globe for half a century now, the British indie-electro newcomer Baxen and another rising star from the island Hoaxx. Put it all together and you got yourself quite a bargain mate. You better believe it or the Irish/Canadian duo Deadbots might just set the “Girl On Fire” and we don’t want that to happen, do we?!
