This year, Deadbeats had the opportunity to work with the one and only Caroline Cecil, better known as WHIPPED CREAM.  From releasing her latest track, ‘Blood’, a fiery and intense anthem filled with distorted sounds and heavy bass - to having her play Night 1 of Deadbeats Chicago, we could not be more excited to have her on board.  

Read on to get to know WHIPPED CREAM and see her this Friday at Deadbeats Chicago!

What is your favourite food or beverage to put whipped cream on?

WC: Matcha green tea latte

Congrats on the success of ‘Blood’! What was your inspiration/creative process behind the track?

WC: Thanks a lot. I’m overwhelmed by how many people are listening and liking it to be honest. A lot of my music has a story behind it. This story was a "march" for revenge. Through all the hardship and shit one goes through, the tough ones prevail...the song grows as it progresses. it grows stronger as a human might. I always start my songs with a story and build the intro from there. This song has a lot of "world sound" sampling and the rest just flowed from there.

Describe your music in three words

WC: It’s your experience.

What kind of music did you listen to in highschool/growing up? Has it influenced your sound at all?

WC: My Dad had a radio beside my bed from the minute I came out of the womb. He always says that’s where I got my love for music. Growing up there was all sorts of music in the house, my parents loved introducing me to a ton of music from classical to James Brown, Jimi Hendrix, Tina Turner, Marvin Gaye, Frank Sinatra, Cher, Al Green. I was born in Toronto and spent a lot of time there and growing up in Hamilton, on my block the kids introduced me to a lot of r&b and hip-hop in general. My favourite music as a kid was Aaliyah, Ashanti, Outkast, Andre 3000, Big Boi, Lil Kim, Tupac, N.E.R.D., Ja Rule. In high school I listened to a lot of r&b and hip-hop and electronic artists; James Blake, Majid Jordan, Activechild, Banks, Frank Ocean, Kavinsky, Bon Iver, Shlomo, Tame Impala, Zeds Dead, Tyler, the Creator, Skrillex, Gesaffelstein, Kali Uchis, Florence + the Machine, DJ Sliink...


Favourite thing about living in Canada - go!

WC: THE SEASONSSSSSS !!!

I love the east coast of Canada but I really love the west coast where I currently live, I truly think Vancouver Island is one of the most beautiful places in the world. It’s really nice to come home and write music here. I love nature too much to leave for good.

What is your favourite venue/festival you have played?

WC: My favourite festival I’ve ever played is Shambhala. My favourite venue was in Eugene OR at an after party. We weren’t expecting much at the time but the room ended up being completely packed, ceiling dripping, played a full underground set and the energy was so intimate I felt like we were all literally one. I literally felt euphoric afterwards. Another venue similar to this vibe was in Sydney Australia called Chinese Laundry.

What can we expect from your upcoming set at Deadbeats Chicago?

WC: A lot of new music from me and music from my friends who are more talented than me!

Thank you WHIPPED CREAM!

WC: Thanks deadeats for supporting amazing music. I’m really happy to be apart of the show in Chicago :)

Catch WHIPPED CREAM Friday, October 19 at Deadbeats Chicago with Zeds Dead, Sub Focus and Barely Alive.
