2012 has undoubtedly been Jack Beats most prolific and prominent year to date. Their Beyoncé remix is still turning heads, they’ve just released the first mini LP ‘Careless’ and the dust hasn’t yet settled on their headline UK tour. Never ones to rest on their laurels, they’ve lined up something rather special ahead of the release of mini LP no.2 – ‘Somebody To Love’.

Progressions sums up the combined parts of both mini albums, resulting in 35 minutes of un-interrupted Jack Beats heat; “The aim of this mix was to produce something a little more special than your average mixtape. It’s a full album length body of original work, summing the best of our last 2 years in the studio”.

Featuring every track off both Careless and Somebody To Love, this is the only place you can hear tracks likeAbout To Get Fresh (Ft Chiddy Bang and OV) and Storm (feat Kid Harpoon) ahead of the release of the mini LP Somebody To Love on 9th December.

As if that wasn’t enough ‘Jack Beats Presents’ returns to FABRIC London on Friday 7th December, and they’ve bought someone rather special along for the ride. Fatboy Slim will be stepping up to the turntables, for his first London DJ set since he rocked up to Stratford straddling a giant purple octopus. This is a rare chance to see him in a club setting, and with the likes of RedlightDoorly & Shadow Child also on the bill, this night is not to be missed.

If you’re stateside don’t fear, you can check Jack Beats on their mammoth US Tour including Owsla dates and a main slot at Hard ‘Day Of The Dead’ Festival! Check out the dates  HERE

Jack Beats are set to release the first in a series of mini albums on 10th September. Entitled ‘Careless,’ the first mini album will feature previous Leonard Cohen-sampling single “End Of Love” as well as a guest appearances from Diplo and Example on the track “War.” Of the mini album releases, Niall and Ben said: “We’ve been working on our album for a long time, and we’ve written a lot of diverse tracks which we feel work better split up over 2 mini albums. It feels a more contemporary and exciting approach to releasing dance music than the traditional album format- removing limitations, and allowing all the music to get proper attention.”

The full tracklisting for ‘Careless’ is:
Careless ft. Takura
War ft. Diplo & Example
Epidemic ft. Dillon Francis
Hooligans
End of Love (re edit)
Fast Girls ft. MNEK
