about

Local Action are proud to present White Magick, a six-track EP by Deadboy that represents his longest and most complete release to date.

Deadboy is an innovator. His 2009 and 2010 singles ‘U Cheated’ and ‘If U Want Me’ predicted exactly where UK dance music would go after dubstep, though unlike a lot of the acts that followed in his slipstream, Deadboy’s music was never polite, and bassline house, dancehall and grime were as big influences as the r’n’b, pop and garage sensibilities that he combined so effectively. His vinyl-only single ‘Fireworks’ remains a high point for that era of UK club music, with Drake singing the track’s praises on radio.

Future EPs like Blaquewerk and Here saw Deadboy continue to apply his unique approach to club music, but on White Magick, he lets in influences from outside the club in ways that he hasn’t before: the influence of new age and ambient music is obvious from the opening notes of ‘White Moon Garden’, while ‘Copwar’ and ‘Sad Sniper’ are the two grimiest tracks that he’s released yet. ‘Inner Palace’, meanwhile, is a reminder that six years on from ‘U Cheated’, there’s still no one combining experimental club music and pop hooks like Deadboy.
