One of the staple forces behind Termanology’s ST. Da Squad, DJ Deadeye has been waiting patiently for his turn in the spotlight. Many already know the Puerto Rican-born, Massachusetts-raised Deadeye (born Dustin Hernandez) as Termanolgy’s DJ, but he’s spent the last six-years quietly building an impressive resume that goes far beyond just his inner circle. Having released multiple critically acclaimed mix tapes and touring extensively in the U.S. and internationally, opening for artists such as Kanye West, Ghostface Killah, M.O.P., DJ Premier and others, Deadeye has made a name for himself in the industry off the strength of his achievements with others. But in 2011, he’s ready to step to the forefront with his official debut album on Brick Records in collaboration with his own ST. Records imprint, Substance Abuse.
As executive producer, Deadeye crafts the album from top to bottom, assembling a fearsome cast of talent from across the hip hop spectrum, including Termanology, Cormega, Trife Diesel, Steele from Smif N Wesson, MC Esoteric, Reks, Big Rapper Pooh, Slaine, Reef the Lost Cauze, Skyzoo, Blacastan, ST. Da Squad and many others, with production from Statik Selektah (1982), DC the Midi Alien (East Coast Avengers), Arabian Knight, Moss, J. Cardim, Lee Bannon, MGI and Deadeye himself. Led by singles from Freddie Foxxx, Panchi (NYG’Z) & Big Shug (“Had It Comin’”) and Slaine, Esoteric, Krumbsnatcha & Ea$y Money (“Livin’ Lost”), Deadeye delivers a disc full of raw, exciting hip-hop that, despite its many contributors, remains an album with his own distinctive stamp on it.
DJ Deadeye’s debut, “Substance Abuse,” will be released on 3-22-2011 in conjunction with Brick/ST. Records and you can catch him at SxSW and on tour worldwide all throughout 2011 with Brick label mates 1982 (Statik Selektah & Termanology) and REKS.
