First Listen: Moody Good makes lurid Deadbeats debut with ‘Bite Your Lip’
Moody Good (real name Eddie Jefferys) has spent the better part of the last decade coming up with deliciously wicked ways to approach dubstep, to considerable avail. After stepping outside his tenure with his former duo, 16bit, in 2014, he soon found a new home for his pernicious productions with the likes of OWSLA, wherein he released his self-titled debut album that same year.
Now he’s emerged from his low-lit dubstep den for another intuitive pairing, this time with the Zeds Dead-championed Deadbeats, for his latest track, “Bite Your Lip.” Jeffery’s debut on the flourishing imprint is a dastardly dub/trap one-two punch. “Bite Your Lip” makes its audacious aural attack with snarling synths, warped extraterrestrial-status bass, and a harrowing chorus of distorted vocals. If the track had teeth, they’d be full-on fangs.
