○ Dead Horse Beats: 17:50 - 18:35
Dead Horse Beats has already crisscrossed the country as part of a new wave of fledgling Canadian beatmakers (Ryan Hemsworth, Artbeat Montreal). Inspired by gospel, instrumental trip hop and swing songs, his generously skewered hip hop beats call forth sweltering summer nights on the banks of the Mississippi. Drawing on a sea of distinctive samples (think 1930s prison work songs), and displaying a comprehensive mastery of his Akai MPD32, Dead Horse Beats ensures a layered, high-energy spectacle with his bass-y, percussive hip hop.
