Coming from Wellington, New Zealand and nicknamed Terror Snake and Downie Wolf respectively, Jeremy Glenn & Dylan Jones are The Upbeats, a standout amongst the most incredible DJ/Production teams to develop out the prolific New Zealand drum and bass picture. From playing unexpected odd blends at a little rock bar, to owning and working their very own record brand, Non Vogue, this considerably inspired “Wayne and Garth” of the drum and bass world are certified pioneers in ways we could count.
With a significant time of involvement in the music scene they have released three massively praised collections (with a fourth underway) and innumerable singles on probably the most regarded drum and bass record brands on the planet.
Known for their abilities at building both innovatively digital alternative songs for the club and authentically enthusiastic home listening tracks – their awesome talents had seen them team up with or rearrange for artists such as Noisia, Ed Rush and Optical, Hive, Bad Company, Gridlock, TREi, Bulletproof, Shapeshifter, State of Mind, and MSTRKRFT.
They’ve performed broadly all across Australia, New Zealand, Europe, North America, and the UK developing a devoted fan-based around the world. Choosing a variety of DJ style, their shows routinely initiate crowdsurfing, mosh pits, in front of an audience acrobats, topless dancers, and even once, double zorb surfing at a limit paint rave.
Exhibiting the same enthusiasm about the production and execution of sounds as they were ten years back, The Upbeats keep on setting benchmarks in all ways. Inventively, these folks are a long way from being done. Sit back and relax as they prepare for the next episodes to come.
