Bangers & Mash Week 1

Here's another new post series that we'll be running every Monday morning... a short mix of five tunes from an artist that we feel are going to have a big impact during this year.

First up is Jack Beats... whose contagious beats and hypnotic basslines have been tearing up clubs across the country in the past 12 months. They're a duo from London consisting of Beni G formally of The Mixologists and Plus One, who we all know and love as one of the three Scratch Perverts dudes.
Up until this year they'd only been putting out remixes, most notably their remix of AC Slater's Jack Got Jacked, Project Bassline's Drop The Pressure and their huge re-work of Caspa's remix of TC's Where's My Money (wow that's a tongue twister) that sent the clubbing scene into overdrive.
It wasn't until January that their first official release 'What' featuring MC Dynamite surfaced on Herve's Cheap Thrills label and Get Down also followed suit, featuring on Herve's 2CD mix compilation Ghetto Bass.
What's got possibly everyone savvy in the electronic music scene all over the world rather wet downstairs... clubbers, promoters and DJs alike right now is their up and coming release, a full EP on Cheap Thrills set for early summer. The source of all the commotion is locked inside a sub-10 second sample of the aptly named K-Hole, which slyly made it's way into their MiniMix for Annie Mac's Radio1 show on April 13th. I literally have no words to describe the sound... so far this is the closest I"ve got (which is what I yelled out when I first heard it): "OMFG... that is the sickest thing I have ever F***KING HEARD!". I literally can only dream about what it must sound like in Fabric's Room 1.
I've nicked the K-Hole part of their MiniMix as it's very tasty placed into the next tune... Bang it out in your car... or on your iPod on the way to work/uni or school to kill some time!
