18+ To Dance, 21+ To Drink With Valid ID
Jackal is one of electronic music’s most dynamic producers. In less than two years, he has released nearly a dozen mixes and branded himself as a trap mastermind whose heart beats drum and bass. His career erupted in 2013 with the success of “Shakedown,” a heavy beat-dropping original track with crunchy snares and 808s. Almost instantly, the record got picked up by LOUDPVCK, whose up-tempo remix hyped its way to being featured in Under the Electric Sky. Today the song has now reached over a million plays on Soundcloud.
Growing up in England, Jackal started to make music when he was just a kid. As a teenager he listened to mainly heavy metal, but around the age of 18 started exploring drum and bass. This ultimately led him to study music technology at the University of Canterbury where he began producing his signature punchy rhythms. The rise of Skrillex in 2011 inspired Jackal to start making music full-time. He holed up in his room and locked the door, only to emerge later as a seasoned DJ with a sound loud enough to be heard around the world. Since then, he’s debut a number of tracks, including a release on Mad Decent with Grandtheft and an original collaboration featuring CRNKN.
His latest song “Chinchilla” hit over 200k plays on Soundcloud in just one week. It gained attention from several producers and warranted a repost from his creative influence Skrillex. Jackal’s music is repeatedly supported by industry giants like Skrillex, Diplo, Zeds Dead, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Kill the Noise. In November 2014, he finished his first US tour of 37 dates, opening for Minnesota and G Jones on the Mind Machine Tour. Prior to that, Jackal did a small tour of Australia in March, hitting five cities in just over a week. Always searching for a fresh sound, he looks forward to bringing new music to his fans around the world.
Spark up an electro fuse with a twist of house, blend with a galvanizing slowed down beat, and Peking Duk is served. Catapulting onto the Australian music scene, the Canberra-bred duo of Adam Hyde and Reuben Styles has captivated fans across Australia and the world with their distinct flavour of indie electronica and electrifying live sets.
Peking Duk got off to a massive start in 2015. They had the honour of having two singles in the top five of Triple J’s Hottest 100 (an amazing feat for their first entry into the countdown), completed a sold-out Peace, Love & Sweatiness regional tour of Australia, won a Rolling Stone Award for Best Video and now ‘Take Me Over’ featuring SAFIA has achieved double platinum sales. This is Peking Duk’s second single to achieve multi-platinum sales, with the ARIA Award winning ‘High’ featuring Nicole Millar recently clocking over to triple platinum!
With hardly a break in their hectic touring schedule, Adam and Reuben jetted off to the U.S. in February to begin their United States of Sweat Tour including performing at the esteemed Coachella festival in California, where they played to a packed Sahara stage on the opening day of the festival. This year will see them play a bunch of overseas festivals including Lollapalooza in Chicago, Squamish in Canada, plus many more to be announced.
Peking Duk also have the Australian festival circuit firmly in their grasp with appearances at Splendour in the Grass, Groovin The Moo, Field Day, Falls Festival, Big Day Out and Stereosonic, with their onstage antics attracting hundreds of thousands of hits on YouTube fan videos.
‘High’ has recently been released worldwide via RCA and Peking Duk will be releasing another single in Australia on Vicious Bitch in the coming months. Stayed tuned for more Peking Duk flavour this year.
Drew Campbell, better known by his stage name Bishu, is already making waves after only a year on the scene. 2015 saw several releases on Unborn Records - including a collaboration with Tomsize - support from The EDM Network, and a spot on Vital Management’s roster. This is only just the beginning for the 20-year-old Canadian producer, who recently signed a contract with Mad Decent records. Watch out for major moves from Bishu in the coming year.
