Jack Beats


On their lonesome, the U.K.-based DJ duo of Niall Dailly and Ben Geffin traffic in a decidedly vanilla brand of electronic pop music: less-than-compelling samples, watered-down acid rave, predictable accelerations of tempo and their inverse. (Jack Beats singles are about as exciting as post-Vegas Crystal Methods.) Thankfully, this duo’s bread and butter are its near-transcendent remixes of songs like Big Boi’s “Shutterbug” and Beyonce’s “Countdown”—a clear indicator of where their talents truly lie.
