Trouble in Paradise
I always like to layer eerie and otherworldly touches into my music, which is why the chapter ‘The Lone Patrol’ served as the biggest inspiration for me when crafting my tracks. Reading about the crimes taking place against the backdrop of the secluded tropical landscape of Palau painted an interesting juxtaposition for me of a sinisterly idyllic place. This realm was intriguing to explore through music. More than that, I felt a deep connection with the struggles of the people in the Palau region and any people of a region close to the sea. Being from Leiden, a small city in the Netherlands, I understand the war against water from a land perspective and can empathize with the constant battles it brings.
DeeB, from Leiden, the Netherlands, is a Dutch composer and producer of laid back electronic music/beats in the genres between hip hop and trip hop. He is known for his typical organic style of morphing his sampled sounds (which are mostly found on old records, movies and field recordings) into a blend of ambient-hip hop tracks, inspired by nature, in their own cinematical place and time.
He has released several solo and collaborative projects on various international labels such as Café del Mar, Chillhop Records, Dust Collectors, Dusted Wax Kingdom, and Cult Classic Records.
