Deathproof is a Canadian-American electronic music duo formed by producer/singer Chris DeMarcus (Front Line Assembly, Stiff Valentine, Dismantled) and drummer/singer Jason Bazinet (Front Line Aassembly, Sounds of Mass Production, 16volt). Chris works out of various recording studios in Vancouver and at his home in Abbotsford, Canada. Jason is based out of New York, USA. The two started to write together via internet file exchanges and Skype after meeting on a tour with 16volt and Chemlab -- Chris mixed the bands while Jason played drums.

Keyboardist/singer Kerry Peterson (Stiff Valentine) and drummer Galen Wailing (Left Spine Down) completed the line-up for Deathproof's debut album, set to come out on WTII Records in 2015.

Chris describes the new album as "Something louder and heavier than what we do with straight dance remixes, still with big cinematic -- and complicated -- production. We've got Jason rapping over breakbeats with live drums, female rap vocals about zombies, a homage to the sound design of Streets of Rage II, and some really big collisions between classical music and modern electronica"

Deathproof is primarily known for their remixes of industrial dance tracks, although they overlap considerably with house techno, hip-hop, and heavy metal. They've retooled tracks for Information Society, Aesthetic Perfection, System Syn, MC Lars, Unit 187, Angelspit, Mesh, and over 50 other electronic and rock artists.They've also produced full records for Stiff Valentine, Sounds of Mass Production, and Slave Unit.


Chris explains the project as a bit of a paradox, "There is something old-school in everything we do. But we've got too many influences to sound simply retro -- and I like modern production techniques too much! We got two heads, one always looking forward and the other backward."
