Download:Jack Beats – Progressions Mixtape

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 25, 2012 by E.N.

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 – Somebody To Love feat. Jess Mills(Stream)

Posted in News with tags , , , , on October 9, 2012 by E.N.

Following on from ‘Careless’ which featured the likes of Example, Diplo, Dillon Francis and Takura, Jack Beats continue to deliver with the second half of their mini-album, ‘Somebody To Love‘ released on 2nd December on Columbia.

Featuring Jess Mills on vocals, the title track and lead single from ‘Somebody To Love‘ is Jack Beats‘ most ambitious tune to date; a bitter sweet vocal by the ‘Live For What I’d Die For’ singer, welded to a retro rave melody brought bang up to date with an anthemic groove that exemplifies all that is good about bass music right now. Be prepared for the oh-so-catchy vocal hook, that you just won’t be able to get out of your brain!

Tuesday 16th October – Sheffield Tuesday Club 14th Birthday @ Octogan

Artist:  Hervé
Title:  Better Than A BMX
Label:  Cheap Thrills
Released:  26th FEB 2012 
It’s been a long time coming but we promise you it’s more than worth the wait. One of the UK’s most prolific and versatile producers Hervé, AKA Joshua Harvey, is back with a new single  ‘Better Than A BMX’, released on the 26th February, the first track to be released from his debut artist album ‘Pick Me Up, Sort Me Out, Calm Me Down’ set to drop next year on Cheap Thrills.
Coming in the wake of this year’s club smash and Radio 1 playlisted ‘Together’, ‘Better Than A BMX’ is a perfect teaser for Hervé’s high-octane, bass-heavy full-length, artfully blurring the lines between underground club music and credible pop, firmly laying foundations for next year’s album.
As renowned for his ability to spot and develop talent as for his studio wizardry, his label Cheap Thrills introduced the likes of Fake Blood and Jack Beats to the world and Hervé has collaborated with everyone from Mystery Jets to Katy B.
Continuing that tradition ‘Pick Me Up, Sort Me Out, Calm Me Down’ features not only the likes of Steve Mason, former lead singer of The Beta Band, but also introduces several exciting new vocalists such as Ronika, just tipped by The Guardian for ‘pop greatness in 2012’.
‘Better Than a BMX’ comes complete with remixes from Sedat The Turkish Avenger, Afghan Headspin and Space Cowboy, and a video starring pro-BMX riders Ben Lewis, Peter Sawyer, Paul Ryan, Lloyd Wright and Kayley Ashworth, directed by Rohan Blair-Magnat and produced by the BMX Adidas and Converse Office Lights advert team.

Jack Beats are one of the very few electronic artists with a unique sound. Having just signed to Deconstruction Records they are now set to release their first single proper, the epic ‘End Of Love’ on Monday 5th December.

The single, which features a Leonard Cohen sample – the first time he has allowed a sample of one of his songs to be used – is taken from the duo’s upcoming album, set for release in early 2012 and which features collaborations with a new wave of electronic music stars and producers from around the world.

STREAM Jack Beats – End Of Love – Original HERE

Having remixed the best in UK pop music including La Roux and Florence & The Machine – their remix of the former’s ‘I’m Not Your Toy’ reached number one on the Hype Machine chart – as well as Beyonce and Big Boi, Jack Beats have taken the hip hop aesthetic to the dance arena. Drawing on the best in UK dance music from house, dubstep and drum & bass the duo have created their own unique sound.

Jack Beats, aka Niall Dailly (Plus One) and Ben Geffin (Mixologists), are renowned for their DJ sets and are one of the only UK dance acts that are headlining raves in North America – last New Year they headlined a 25,000 capacity football stadium in Los Angeles and were recently one of the main acts on New York’s huge ‘Electric Zoo’ line up.

They are currently developing their live show with Bionic League (Daft Punk / Deadmau5) which they hope to premier early next year. Meanwhile the next “Jack Loves” Fabric residency is set to take place on Friday 2nd December.

Remixes for the single will come from Oliver $ and Koan Sound.

The start of the UK party season this year is led by Bristol’s pioneering party starters In:Motion. A series of incredible events striking hot on the heels of last year’s triumphant first season, which tore a hole in the skate park come club Motion, spread across five rooms indoors and out. 2011 brings artists from all musical persuasions capturing everyone from the heroes of the scene to the rising stars and bringing all manner of brands from the electronic music community together to embrace all dimensions of the underground dance movement.

The peerless Hessle Audio make their debut for the In:Motion series on 15th October, standing head and shoulders above the rest with performances from Jamie XX and Jamie Woon. Jamie XX’s movements out of his band, The XX to DJ and remix artist have been well received with heavyweights such as Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, Florence and The Machine, and Canadian rap giant Drake. Jamie also released one of the anthems of the summer on NMBRs in the form of ‘Far Nearer’. Since Jamie Woon came onto the scene everyone has been scrabbling for the opportunity to see him live. His album debut ‘Mirror Writing’ saw him strike a terrific balance between convention and subversion, producing dubstep infused commercial tracks, alongside equally enigmatic and enchanting productions. Both of these artists are a rare sight in a club setting, but Bristol In:Motion’s festival atmosphere found within numerous intimate and vast spaces is an apt fit for these two sonic masters.

Bugged Out return for 2011 on the opening weekend on October 8th, bringing Jamie Jones, now a household name for a new generation of house and techno fans through his Hot Natured guise and Hot Creations label. It will have already been an amazing week for L-Vis 1990 & the Neon Dream who will have just released their staggering new album ‘Neon Dreams’ which features Para One, Teki Latex and Julio Bashmore. L-Vis 1990 (aka James Connolly) a London-based DJ and producer co-founded the groundbreaking Night Slugs imprint with Bok Bok. Also kicking things off in the first week is Fake Blood aka Theo Keating aka Touché. Under his many aliases, the man like Keating has produced some classics over the years remixing the likes of Underworld, Hot Chip & UNKLE. He’s become somewhat of a Bugged Out! family member and will bring his bass heavy bangers to the floor.  

Sharing the bill on opening weekend are firm friends and In:Motion family favourites Hospitality, who bring Danny Byrd, High Contrast and MJ Cole amongst others. Bringing together bass heavy music, an electrifying atmosphere and second to none production, Hospitality have grown into true titans of the scene, consistently bringing the best in show-stopping DJs from the constantly evolving drum & bass scene to a hugely faithful crowd. This summer they represented at the Parklife festival, ripped apart their own stage at Lovebox and set things alight at Global Gathering. D&B is back in Bristol, its spiritual home.

Sven Vath’s Cocoon, are to techno what light is to fire. They continue to touch thousands of people across every continent with their inimitable brand and unfaltering show. This December they will bring it to Bristol for the first time. The now iconic Tiefschwarz headline the show, exemplifying their playful talents for putting everything from electro to tech-house and slithering minimal under the scope and turning out consistently compelling sets.

Bristol’s own Just Jack bring Soul Clap on the 29th October to headline their highly acclaimed Halloween party The Gunpowder Plot which will be complete with circus acts and fireworks. The trend-setting American East coast duo leapt to fame through their relationship to the esteemed Wolf + Lamb family. This year saw them bridge new levels of notoriety through their special DJ Kicks album.

Moving back a little to November and BBC Radio 1’s Toddla T will make the crossing from Sheffield counties to blow the roof of Motion once again. Toddla T has firmly established himself in the last few years with production and heavyweight remixes for the likes of Roots Manuva, Hot Chip, Gorillaz and Tinchy Stryder and more, plus a DJ rep so strong that it bagged him a regular Radio 1 show.

Festival brands BLOC will join heavyweights Run and Bristol favourites Futureboogie, who bring the infamous Henrik Schwarz, ensuring there is something for every musical taste on show.

Add to that the incredible production team and a venue that verges on festival status with five rooms of varying calibre, and In:Motion’s second year is set to be bigger and better than anything else on the radar. 2011 sees improved sound engineering and facilities such as food court and photo booth.
