The Upbeats will be bringing their badass bass beats to the inaugural EDC India in a few short weeks. And while they can’t wait to put those subs to work on Sunday, November 12, they decided to go in a different direction when we asked them to put together a playlist for the event.
The boys have said that when they aren’t in the studio, they don’t listen to D&B—so they can give their ears a much-needed rest—and this playlist may serve as an example of what you’d find on their iPod if you hit shuffle. Representing everything from house to R&B, soul to breakbeat, the Upbeats clearly have an ear for good music, regardless of genre.
