Deb Never & Kenny Beats “Stone Cold”

Deb Never & Kenny Beats share the new single “Stone Cold”. Produced by Kenny Beats (Dominic Fike, Rico Nasty, Denzel Curry). The single comes alongside a new video directed by Augustin Vita (Deb Never – “Ugly”), just a month before Deb opens for Mura Masa on his North American tour.

As the title suggests, the song “Stone Cold” pays homage to Stone Cold Steve Austin of American wrestling fame. On it, Deb – in typical nonchalant fashion – cleverly paints the “tough guy” image as one that is immature and lonely, all while Kenny Beats provides an intimidating yet infectious bassline beneath her.

Deb Never began recording dream-like melodies and developing her ominous grunge sound by drawing inspiration from various ‘90s artists while growing up in the Pacific Northwest. After trial and error with different bands, Deb decided to forge her own path and relocated to Los Angeles. Once there, she began working on her debut project which was then taken on by WEDIDIT. She released the House on Wheels EP via the label in August 2019, just one of many achievements made that year alone.

Kenny Beats has worked on a number of projects, including trap twist (Rico Nasty – “Rage”) or a trunk-rattling interpolation of a West Coast classic (Freddie Gibbs feat. 03 Greedo – “Death Row”), he’s produced entire projects and hundreds of thundering, wildly different beats for critically-acclaimed artists like Rico Nasty, Omar Apollo, Vince Staples, Dominic Fike, Key!, 03 Greedo, JPEGMAFIA, and Ski Mask the Slump God.
