The unique and analogue feel of Dead Tribe owes something to his DIY approach. He’s a known collector of broken old synths, which he takes apart and rebuilds. It’s evidently a rewarding process from a producer’s perspective – those rich sounds are difficult to emulate with digital plugins alone.
Described as somewhere between Retrowave and Arabwave, electronic producer Dead Tribe recently delivered his latest album ‘Ultrafuture’. Its 10 tracks paint a dystopian future, where eerie electronic sounds are mixed with Arabian and Tribal textures.
Beyond the music, Dead Tribe has firmly rooted his music in London’s subcultural scene. He will be opening at Caustic on Sunday, an event that is rapidly establishing itself as a pioneer of modern underground rave culture.
Ultrafuture is released on Tapeheadz, the free tape factory for underground music, supported by Tottenham-based microbrewery Brewheadz and Public Pressure.
