About Jack Beats:
This year, UK duo Jack Beats are celebrating a decade as pioneers of a trademark hybrid sound that fuses hip-hop, house, and drum ‘n’ bass. Since 2007, Jack Beats have been awarded a thriving international fanbase with their forward thinking approach to production and DJing that has resulted in festival bookings worldwide, including Electric Daisy Carnival and Beyond Wonderland coming up in 2018.
Following 2017 releases with DJ Zinc titled “The Anvil” and the Modulate EP, the duo, real names Niall Dailly and Ben Geffin, are kicking off 2018 with another new EP, this time finding a home at Insomniac Records. Titled ‘Vibrate,’ the double header EP hears Jack Beats delve deep into a complex multi-genre sound. First up, the project’s title track enlists Sir Michael Rocks of The Cool Kids to lay down a set of whirlwind rhymes atop a Jack Beats’ production that channels a notable G-House feel. The companion track, “Keep On,” falls into familiar Jack Beats territory with a roving house music rhythm jam packed with punchy bass and synth experimentation to give the song a classic-meets-current sound.
About DJ CRAZE:
On top of his untouchable turntablist skills and scratch champion showmanship, the world has also recognized that Craze is a second to none club DJ he has toured the globe over, from Jamaica to Australia to Japan to Iceland to France to the country he was born, Nicaragua. All DJing aside, Craze is also a world-renowned producer, releasing wildly successful drum’n’bass records with labels such as Cartel Recordings, Breakbeat Kaos, and C.I.A and other hip hop inspired productions with the likes of DMC Records, Ninja Tune Records, OM Records and K7 Records. It’s the respect from both DJs and audiences alike that has paved Craze’s seamless move between hip hop and turntablism to drum’n’bass both serious subzero clique/cult scenes the globe over demanding much of any artist trying to peddle their wares worldwide; to what now sounds like club-style Miami bass, formed with the technical love of hip hop with clean cuts and ridiculously dextrous scratching, but a mix up of straight-up rap, ghettotech, raw booty house, old-school electro, Baltimore/Miami bass crossover and sweaty lo-end dancefloor music, making it all but impossible to keep still. This is Craze the man who arguably defined his hometown Miami turntablism scene, only to return now to reinvent this take on the Miami sound; a neo-genre of his own special blend of every which way club codes from the ghosts of discos past, present and future.
