About Deatbeats

IMG_0652Deatbeats was formed by musicians Neil Armstrong and Ben Mageary with an aim to deliver a noise machine that fused the excitement/power of a live percussion band with the interactive visual theatrics of street entertainment to the club/festival environment. Since its conception at the ill-fated Furness Fest in 2008, Deatbeats has grown in both numbers and popularity, performing alongside acts such as Sub Focus, Krafty Kuts at MONSTER MONSTER nights, Ibibio Sound Machine and Craig Charles as well as appearing at Festivals such as Kendal Calling, Solfest, Beacons and Manchester Academy IllumiNaughty events. Deatbeats strength lies in its unique approach at merging contemporary and traditional rhythms together and its “onslaught of the senses” design along with its versatility, enthusiasm and ultimate desire to “bring the party” to any event it gets its hands on.
