Jack Beats are heading back to Australia in February 2016 for a national tour thanks to Nuffsaid! The UK duo will be hitting up Mountain Sounds Festival, Enchanted Garden Festival as well as club shows in Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Melbourne and the Sunshine Coast.
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 Rudimental, Oliver Heldens, Major Lazer, A-Track , Skream, Beyoncé, Aloe Blacc, Big Boi and more, they have formed a relationship with an increasingly hungry audience.
For Niall Dailly and Ben Geffin the joy in music is in the idea and its execution. They're relentlessly moving forward and they're intent on bringing us all with them.
"We're in a world of our own," Ben says. "We've always made music that's quite forward-thinking and different. So much so that, sometimes, we're not sure whether anyone else is even into it. There's a bit of fortune-telling going on in what we do, but we both have patience, we never release anything until we know it's absolutely right."
Ultimately, Jack Beats have got a mass of ambitions, the main one being to get their music to as many people as possible.
"If a year ago someone had said our music would come out on a major label across the world I'd have fallen over laughing," says Niall. "We began life as an underground crew making tunes for Sunday night hardcore clubbers. Suddenly it gets to this level and it's shocking, but we've been around enough to know that we're here on the merit of what we've done. We're not trying to be something we're not."
And that is the key to Jack Beats, that's why their plan works. They are making exactly the music they want to make and the world is coming to them.
