Wellington duo The Upbeats are primed to follow in the footsteps of breakthrough producers Concord Dawn with the release of their debut self-titled album.

Loop Recordings are proud to present The Upbeats debut album which brings together an impressive spectrum of broken beat tracks. Ranging from hard as nails workouts through to effortless and melodic breaks. This album shows an impressive knack for catchy hooks & dance-floor stormers.

7 tracks from the album are poised to be released through a swag of some of the most respected labels in the world including Timeless (Digital) in the UK, Vicious Music Group, Incite Recordings and Hostile Recordings in the USA, and Protogen Recordings in Germany.

The Upbeats was album of the week and received a four star review in last weeks Dominion Post.

SmokeCD' has this to say: "this is cutting edge music by artists unafraid of turning a blind corner - their debut is a celebration of music and no one should be left untouched by that. Highly recommended".
