Second Weekend June 29 - July 2
Bringing bass to life with his analog synth wizardry, ZEKE BEATS is quickly making a name for himself amongst the international bass community. It is hard to describe the futuristic sound ZEKE BEATS is pushing out, although influences of hip hop, grime, and bass encapsulate a sound which has a profound impact on the evolution of modern bass music proving dance floors go crazy.
His distinctly dirty and crunchy sound is quickly being discovered amongst labels, DJ’s and fellow producers receiving hype and plays from the likes of The Gaslamp Killer, DJ Craze, DJ Shadow, Bleep Bloop, G Jones, Doshy, Saturate Records, Slow Roast Records and Doggtown Records just to name a few. With his debut EP “PAY ATTENTION” seeing Vinyl and digital release via Saturate Records, ZEKE BEATS is finally getting the recognition he deserves in the lane has he created for himself

2016 was Zeke’s breakthrough year with his very successful “Meltdown” EP release via Terrorhythm records. Off the back of this EP Zeke signed to Australian booking agency, Poster Child; and American power house agency, Madison House. He was nominated by InTheMix as Australia’s top 5 best breakthrough artists of 2016 and was later included in their “top 20 acts to see of 2016”. BBC radio & Triple J showed support by playing his music, and all this support lead to a support slot for Nero, as well as an extensive US & Canada tour; seeing him open up the prestigious Shambhala music festival and booked for Bassrush’s ‘Project Z’.
