In today's heady climate of bass-fuelled dance music it could easily be argued that producer-DJs are the new rock stars. Climbing into that mould with a pair of schoolboy grins on their faces, The Upbeats have already been playing that role for years. Their anything-goes live performances are renowned for mosh pits, topless dancers (sometimes women) and crowd surfing, while their approach to writing hard-hitting, unique-sounding drum & bass is lauded across the globe.
Fuelled by New Zealand's isolation from the rest of the world and its staggering natural beauty, The Upbeats' unique take on 170bpm+ bass music has seen the duo work alongside scene stalwarts such as Ed Rush & Optical, Bad Company, Hive, Gridlok, Bulletproof, TREi and State of Mind while releasing tracks across a plethora of the D&B scene's most respected record labels and are building up to the release of their 4th full length album on Noisia's label 'Vision recordings'.
