Bad Hopes EP

A 4 track deep house ep (17m 16s) — released October 14th 2016 on Bastard Jazz Recordings

Patrick Wade, better known as Dead Horse Beats is a producer, singer and multi-instrumentalist living in Montreal, Canada. Since the release of his first album in 2011, Wade has garnered attention for his unique brand of hazy, rhythmic, soul-styled creations, and energetic live spectacles featuring a slough of live instrumentation, electronics and guest performers.

After the release 2015's acclaimed Single People LP and a brief stint with London's Black Butter Records, DHB partnered with Brooklyn based Bastard Jazz Recordings for his premiere vinyl pressing - the Fall 2016 release of Bad Hopes EP.

Bad Hopes is the culmination of a new, fully realized sonic direction for Dead Horse Beats, inspired by the sounds of the Montreal scene in which DHB is embedded; equal parts glittering R&B, and undeniable deep house inspired soundscapes, fusing fully on Bad Hopes,

Alongside friends and collaborators Frase (vocals on She Said) and Jason Simpkin (additional production and instrumentation throughout) DHB blends his voice and lyrics with bassy grooves, lush synths and sharp, angular percussion into a cohesive, rolling soundscape.
