<<<< DEADBEAT FM ( JHB ) >>>>

After winning two international competitions, including a remix of D-Nox & Beckers’ – Call Me, Deadbeat FM are dedicated to bringing a vulgar new sound to the tech scene.

They are the unholy union of notorious psy-trance producer, Deliriant (Shane), with a multitude of international gigs and releases under his belt, and Johnny Rook (Piers), the shady breaks peddler from the seediest bars downtown.

The Deadbeat FM sound is not tied down by genre, but delves mostly into the grimy underworld of minimal and tech house; making use of dirty bass lines, fat kicks and huge drums & percussion, often with a driving yet minimalist undertone.

Recently placing third in a D-Nox & Beckers remix competition, the Joburg based duo is making waves internationally, and their tracks are well received on dancefloors across the globe.

As of late, Deadbeat FM is influenced by the crossover sounds dominated by the likes of Magitman, D-Nox & Beckers, Lish, Perfect Stranger, Khainz, Miki Litvak and so many more.

If you haven’t yet had the guilty pleasure of vibrating to the Deadbeat FM airwaves, be sure to stay tuned.

In 2006, Bruno Morphet and fellow DJs Ivan Turanjanin and Adam ‘AK47′ Klein founded Killer Robot, a regular electro night at Cape Town’s Fiction nightclub. Intended as a platform to host the best in local and international techno artists and DJs, in the process Killer Robot quickly becoming recognized as an eminent DJ collective in their own right, touring extensively locally and abroad.

Apart from his appearances at clubs and festivals around South Africa, Bruno is also a regular visitor to Germany where he has performed at clubs from Distillery in Leipzig to the infamous Berlin after-hours spot, Club Der Visionaere, appearing alongside names like Seth Troxler, Ryan Crosson and Shaun Reeves.

This week Fiction also launches the ‘Fiction Icons’ poster series.

Each week a new illustration captures the essence of a character from fiction or popular culture in a few bold colours and basic strokes, with the Fiction logoshape integrated into the design. Some characters will be easy to identify, some not, depending on which of them you grew up with. These posters will form part of a collectable series and will later be offered as limited edition prints.

Rumoured to have the blue-prints for Krang's TechnoDrome, stolen straight from Dimension X, he’s the type of guy who exudes so much coolness that he adds whole countries on Facebook at one time instead of just people. Always up for a party and a Tequila shot or two this is the guy who we always call first, both before and after a night out…
