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
In 2010 ZEKE BEATS was the first ever, “Qbert Skratch University Valedictorian”, awarded by Grandmaster turntablist “DJ Qbert”, recognizing Zeke’s extraordinary talent. A true credit to his live performance ability.
2012, ZEKE BEATS was asked to perform the Australian Premier of “Concerto for Turntables and Orchestra”, with the West Australian Symphony Orchestra (WASO). Also performing live on the ABC Classical Radio One National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
2013 Saw ZEKE BEATS taking out the Western Australian Red Bull Threestyle DJ Championship before successfully releasing his debut EP in 2014 via German Record Label, Saturate Records and also the Slow Roast Records Single.
Throughout 2015, ZEKE BEATS has heavily worked on his music in the studio (whilst also performing in various cities in Australia), building a plethora of releases which are ready to take the industry by storm in 2016.
Zeke has been approached by National Australian Broadcast Radio “Triple J” to make an exclusive Mix for their popular “Mix Up” show and are also broadcasting Zeke’s music.

Chris Matthews, otherwise known as DJ Nykon, is not your typical cat. In fact, the eccentric, LRG-wearing, gold chain-waving, turntable-crushing DJ is anything but ordinary. Born in New Jersey and raised in California, DJ Nykon made his way nomadically through the West Coast music scene, and now calls Long Beach,CA home. After building industry relationships by leading street team campaigns for various artists and concerts (including Banksy, Warped Tour and Guerilla Union), DJ Nykon found himself DJ'ing for Living Legends, alongside Visionaries and Hieroglyphics. Soon after, he started DJing for Luckyiam (of Living Legends) and hit the road furiously in 2007. Hitting both the Paid Dues festival and Rock the Bells, he played alongside such notable acts as Rage Against the Machine and Wu-Tang Clan. Currently working on a new Bass Music, with his crew members of The D.R.E.A.M. Brigade and Seekquence. Nykon is on the steady grind touring the U.S. with Sapient of The Sandpeople, Luck N Lana, and Ash Riser. Playing shows ranging from electro,dubstep, and trap parties to packed underground Hip Hop venues.
