Good Morning Mix: Deadbeats hosts LICK for earthshaking guest mix
Rising talent LICK caught attention early on in his career from Zeds Dead, signing onto the duo’s iconic Deadbeats imprint shortly afterward and establishing a reputation as a bass act to watch. His remixes in particular have bolstered his career, with the producer providing ever-creative, and raunchy, takes on the originals he targets. Naturally, the new label signee would be invited onto the Deadbeats podcast in due time, and his debut works as a fiery upstart to the day. The hour-long mix fills the body with electric shock, opening on a creepy note before bounding over robotic synths, wild trap and dubstep drops, and valleys of funk-based grooves. It shows off LICK’s diverse influences and palette, while his own work in the mix reminds us why he’s been so well-received after barely making his industry break.
