The Death Beats
Bass Music producer Gary J Robinson lays down an intense mix of Drum & Bass, Dubstep, Future Bass, House and Synthwave as he slips between his studios in the UK and Mexico. Best described as an unstable cocktail of dark cinematic grandeur and retro fuelled synth tones, The Death Beats music strikes a balance between ominous atmospherics, sweeping melodies and all out dance-floor chaos. Emerging from the Drum & Bass scene of the late nineties, Gary started out by collaborating with a number of game changing producers including Drumsound & Simon Bassline Smith, Spirit and Total Science. His early releases went on to gain the support of heavy-weight DJs such as Fabio, Goldie and Grooverider. The Death Beats sees Gary draw on inspiration from every corner of the Dance Music world in order to create his signature sound. Along the way he’s been lucky enough to collaborate with a host of legendary artists including Crystal Clear, Doctor P, Eric Martin, Yah Kid K and pioneering UK Folk duo Harbottle & Jonas. Arizona based songwriter Alisse Garn, whose vocal talents under the guise of Little Panda have also played an important role in defining The Death Beats sound. ‘Streets of Rage’, their collaboration with Mexican Drum & Bass producer Isaac Maya was released on Jessica Audiffred’s A-Records label too much acclaim and is generally considered to be the first Synthwave Drum & Bass anthem. In addition to rocking airwaves and dance floors Gary’s music is regularly featured in film and TV, with credits in movies such as Eliminators, How Bruce Lee Changed The World, Playmobil The Movie, Timefreak and the Daniel Benmayor film Tracers as well as TV shows including Beauty & The Beast, Chicago Fire, Madame Secretary, Shameless and The Magicians. His portfolio also includes a number of popular reality shows such as Keeping up with the Kardashians, Life of Kylie and Selling Sunset. The Death Beats continue to lay down a dynamic selection of upfront electronic music in the style of artists including Dimension, Diskord, Nero, Sub Focus and The Prodigy.
