Deathpact is an electronic music producer. They debuted in 2018 on Rezz's album, Certain Kind of Magic with the track "Life and Death." They later released three EPs, Cipher One and Cipher Two, and Departure on mau5trap.
Deathpact began their musical career with their single, Danger. However, upon the release of their collaboration with Rezz, Life & Death, Deathpact gained mainstream attention among EDM blogs. Immediately following, Deathpact began an Alternate Reality Game campaign, placing their mask over billboards and advertisements around New York City, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. Calling the phone number on the website the QR code linked to would lead down a litany of websites, leading to "keys," or clues to continue. These clues eventually lead to a flash drive hidden in Los Angeles, nicknamed Deathdrop One, which contained unreleased singles, eventually included on Cipher One.
Deathpact continued to gain attention outside of their collaborations with Rezz. Jean-Michel Jarre named Deathpact as an artist he would like to work with, and they were also named one of Billboard's Ones to Watch in October, 2018.After being featured on Diplo's Revolution on SiriusXM, they continued to collaborate with artists like Zeds Dead, 1788-L, and Odesza. Entering 2018, they were announced as a headliner at the Shambhala Music Festival. Deathpact would later go on to release Kiss of Death with Rezz, on her album Certain Kind of Magic. Following their world debut at Shambhala, they released Departure, their third EP. Deathpact was soon announced to be playing even more music festivals, like Electric Forest, Meow Wolf, and Snowglobe Music Festival, where they made their US debut.
