Jack Beats Live
Jack Beats Live
Jack Beats are a multiple award winning DJ duo made up of Niall Dailly (DJ Plus One of Scratch Perverts fame) and Ben Geffin (The Mixologists). They have had an immediate and profound effect on the club scene since teaming up in 2007; producing transcendent remixes for La Roux, Passion Pit and Florence & The Machine amongst others and releasing their genre bending ‘U.F.O’ EP on Hervé’s Cheap Thrills Records.
Citing influences as diverse as Timbaland, Rage Against the Machine, A Guy Called Gerald and Sebastian, the two began to hone a style fusing House, Hip Hop and Dubstep with Electro and Drum & Bass… what emerged was a cutting edge sound. The duo demanded immediate attention after their gob-smacking take on Boy 8-Bit’s anthem ‘Fogbank’ dropped in early 2008 followed by refixes of Trip’s guitar-driven ‘Who’s That?’ and the now classic AC Slater remix.

Support from major industry players Annie Mac, Diplo, A-Trak, Zane Lowe and the Crookers plus the whole of blog-land. Clubbers seem particularly keen as well with the duo playing at all the major clubs and festivals across the world including a Fabric residency and recently playing to 80,000 clubbers in LA on NYE 2010. They have just released ‘All Night / Elevator Music’ on Cheap Thrills and are working on their debut album (set for release early 2012) and a spectacular live show.

West London duo 16Bit are two of the most respected electronic producers working today. Not many producers can count among their fans; Bjork, Plan B & Professor Green. All of whom have enlisted 16bit’s productions for their upcoming albums.

Bursting onto the scene with their huge Chainsaw Calligraphy, the track received Radio 1 airplay from the likes of Kissy Sell Out and Mary Anne Hobbs, with DJs as diverse as Flying Lotus, The Gaslamp Killer and The Scratch Perverts all regularly featuring their productions in their sets.

Recent remixes for the likes of Plan B, Professor Green and Noisia’s huge Machine Gun have continued to raise their profile, along with their track JUMP! being used in a Nike commercial and a Nintendo Wii game featuring their discography.

16bit are at home on stage, enjoying themselves as much as the crowd they’re playing to.

Journeying through all styles of music with elegance, their sets will go from sending the audience into a frenzy one moment to the most emotional moment the next, their sets are nothing short of epic.

Whether in the studio working towards their debut album, producing tracks for high profile artists, smashing huge shows or touring the world, these two are always busy.

They have recently signed exclusively to Chase and Status’ MTA records.
