Album Notes
the Floors

Recorded by Rob Grant and mixed by Adam Round, Dead Beat is entirely self-explanatory from the very first listen; from the ferocious howl of Luke Dux and the chainsaw snarl of his SG, to the mammoth swing and bottom end of bassist Ryan Dux and drummer Ash Doodkorte. Overdriven and saturated to an almost impossible point, The Floor’s sonic delivery is lacking in any subtlety or timidity.

But it is not just this sonic bombardment that gives The Floors their power. For all of the volume and fuzz, The Floors are merely amplifying the original and most primal spirit of the blues... its heaviness.

The strength of The Floors is the sheer blackness of their blues.

Beautifully honest, each song on Dead Beat is layered simply with rhythm, melody and words. Three people in a room, making music. And it is because of their confidence and chemistry as performers that The Floors can use this as the backbone of their debut album. Doodkorte and the Dux brothers (who are two-time recipients of WAMi awards for Best Guitarist and Best Bassist) have spent the past few years earning their stripes as touring musicians, performing not just with The Floors but also as members of WA staples Kill Devil Hills, Will Stoker And The Embers, and Timothy Nelson And The Infidels. That is, they are more at home on stage than anywhere else.

Relying on nothing but the trio’s primary instruments to create something huge, Dead Beat is literally the sound of The Floors performing. And although you’re unlikely to hear The Floors play a song the same way twice, as a moment captured in time, Dead Beat is worthy of being called definitive.

Stomping and wailing from start to finish, Dead Beat is The Floors at their relentless best.
