The Upbeats

The Upbeats Logo


In today’s heady climate of bass-fuelled dance music, producer-DJs are the new rock stars. The Upbeats have exemplified this for years. Their anything-goes, explosive live performances are renowned for mosh pits, topless dancers (sometimes women) and crowd surfing. The Upbeats’ ability to writing hard-hitting, classy, dynamic and unique drum & bass has set standards for dance music production and composition globally.

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 stalwarts such as Noisia, Ed Rush & Optical, Bad Company, Hive, Shapeshifter and State of Mind to name a few. In September this year, their collaborative EP with Shapeshifter, ‘Bloodstream’, reached no.1 in the I-Tunes Charts after only 2 days of being released. Their remix skills are in high demand and autumn 2014 will see the release of their remix for Submotion Orchestra’s forthcoming single, ‘Trust Lust’. With a slew of #1’s under their belts, The Upbeats are still leading the way forward…………………
