Barely Alive's official logo

Barely Alive is a Massachusetts-based EDM duo whose sound combines dubstep, trap, and drum'n'bass influences together. The duo began producing tracks in 2013, including digital singles on Dirty Duck Audio and Adapted Records, as well as remixes for Getter, Virtual Riot, Astronaut, and others. Barely Alive signed to Disciple Recordings in 2014, releasing the four-song EP, "Lost In The Internet" early in the year. The release was an immediate success on dance music retail site, Beatport (where the duo were eventually named the second best-selling dubstep artist of 2014), and they began touring the U.S and Europe along with artists such as Datsik and Trolley Snatcha. Numerous singles and EPs followed, including collaborations with Zomboy and Splitbreed, and the duo's full-length debut album, "We Are Barely Alive", surfaced on Disciple in October of 2015. Since then, the duo released their OWSLA debut single, "Back To Back", a remix to SKisM's "Experts", and their remix album, "We Are Barely Alive: The Remixes". Their experimental Hip-Hop/Rap & Dubstep track "Salty" was released later in the year, many remixes came after including some for DJ Snake, Herobust, Henry Fong, and Mayhem & Antiserum. Their OWSLA debut EP, "Domain EP", was released in early February of 2017. In late July, Disciple released a teaser for the duo's second album, "Odyssey", which was released on August 13th, 2018.
