DEADLIFE a.k.a. Ed Hawx has proven to be a hugely prolific artist over the last few years.
Across seven full-length albums, he has helped to drive the synthwave scene forwards with a particular penchant for the shadowy end of the spectrum that has become known as dark synth. The former drummer is a self-taught producer with a real mastery of his machines and software, which has seen him become one of the most exciting and influential names in the scene. Some try to make comparisons to leading artists like Sebastian, Com Truise, and Kavinsky, but DEADLIFE goes his own way, building on the traditions of Vangelis, Underworld, and Daft Punk and taking them far into the future with his own sense of style. The sound of DEADLIFE appeals to anyone who loves dark melodies and hard-hitting electronic beats.
To further introduce Darksynth as a genre, DEADLIFE takes over this week’s mix of the week. Learn more about the sound, here.
