2002 release. Despite losing the ability to taste and smell through a childhood accident, Damon Baxter employs the senses of touch, sight and sound to their fullest. As DJ, label-boss and producer, he has forged an original identity amidst a scene of sound-alikes, weaving together an appreciation of the past with an understanding of the present. Regularly appearing in any of Fabric's three rooms, his fearlessly thrown-down sets are notable for hip-hop skills and hard-hitting beats. Since his early releases on Electron Industries as Sem, Deadly has released records through DC Recordings, Wall Of Sound and his own label, Illicit. He has remixed Manic Street Preachers, Travis and Money Mark. His debut artist album benefited from the production of FabricLive cohort Howie B. Throwing hooks like a heavyweight, FabricLive. 04 is a cut-and-paste, quick mix selection that captures Deadly Avenger's boundary-free mixing method. Beginning with the cinematic "We Took Pelham," and his own re-placing of Bill Conti's Rocky score into Joseph Sargent's 1974 statement of NYC-attitude, The Taking Of Pelham One Two Three, it moves through hip-hop, breaks, roots and soul -- seamlessly scratched, hacked and cut into an energetic, sonic onslaught. Testing the sample-spotters and defying the bootleggers, Deadly's mindset is summed-up in squeezing The Nextmen and Dynamo Productions between the Jackson Sisters and James Brown. Other artists include: DJ LBR, Crooklyn Clan, Frank Delour, LL Cool J, Jimmy Bo Horne, Ceasefire vs. Deadly Avenger, Maceo And The Macks, DJ Ace, DJ AP, and Petricone.
