The excellent 192-page booklets that came with the Trance Europe Express compilations were always a rich source of information about the featured artists ...except in the case of Deadstock who appeared on TEEX4. Rather enigmatically their eight-page article consisted entirely of dark, tribal, graphic-novel-style illustrations and no text. Oh well, at least the book's contents page gave the three band-members' names which is more than Deadstock's CD artwork ever did!

Deadstock released a broad range of melodic techno that sits comfortably alongside Salt Tank and Orbital in the Internal back-catalogue. Highlights for me are the simple dub-techno of 'White Man'; the broken beats, deep bass and bubbling acid-line of 'Six-Sided Something'; the downtempo male vocals of 'Suite 303' (think Dubnobass-era Underworld) and the fluent layering of ambient synth, metallic IDM perc, echo-processed piano, subtle horn riffs and funky drum breaks on 'Fold Unfold Fold'.
