JACK BEATS + EEKKOO
JACK BEATS and EEKKOO join us for a power packed night of music on November, 12th!
Jack Beats have a plan. That plan involves taking the very best, most spectacularly effective pieces from a vast array of different musical genres and blending them together into an irrepressible force that detonates on contact. When you lay it out like that it all seems quite simple really, doesn’t it?
Through their six singles and a string of monstrous remixes for the likes of Skream, Beyoncé, Aloe Blacc, Big Boi, Florence & The Machine and La Roux they have formed a relationship with an increasingly hungry audience.
“There’s nothing more satisfying than when we’ve done something that we think might go over everyone’s heads and six months later everyone loves it! It gives you more confidence in the weirdness of your ideas…”
It’s that weirdness of ideas that has propelled Niall and Ben since they put out their first Jack Beats track in 2007. They’re both multiple award winning DJs; in a previous life Niall was DJ Plus One from Scratch Perverts while Ben was a founder member of The Mixologists. Serious turntablists, the pair inhabited a world where endless hours were spent practising scratch routines.
“But we would mainly talk about music, get drunk and go to clubs,” admits Ben. “It’s such a nerdy boys’ thing, it becomes your whole world.”
Precision. Power. Ambition. Those are the first words that come to mind when describing Eekkoo’s sound. A true master of his craft, the Montreal-based producer has been teaching sound design and mastering classes for years. It comes as no surprise then to learn that eekkoo was discovered by the notorious Joel Zimmerman and had his first major release under his label.
Eekkoo’s approach to composition is unique. Not bound by genre or style, he focuses instead on crafting bold, innovative sound textures that dictate the orientation of his music. His method is thoughtful yet confident, with a default setting that leans towards both raw power and subtle seduction.
This is an artist with presence, a master conductor not afraid to ignite the sparks of imagination and push the boundaries of modern electronic music.
