Known for their jazzy chord stabs, funky electric leads, heavy bass design, and a healthy dose of traditional instruments and samples, the duo SugarBeats has steadily stepped up the bar in their own brand of Glitch Hop and Future Funk since they launched in 2012. You can trace the evolution of their sound from their first releases with Street Ritual Records, to their EP “Fizz Pop” on Muti Recordings, and finally arrive at their signature sound as heard on their new EP “Stay Fresh” via Adapted Records. They have rocked stages at some of the biggest sound camps at Burning Man, played festivals such as What The Festival, Kaleidoscope Music
Festival, as well as won contests to play the Main Stage at SnowGlobe and Escape from Wonderland with Insomniac Events, respectively. Artists they have shared the stage with include Opiuo, The Glitch Mob, Major Laser, Gramatik, RJD2, The Floozies, Cut Copy, ill.Gates, Pantyraid, Thriftworks, Love & Light, Snoop Dog, Zion I and many more. After years of experimentation they have finally uncovered a sound that is truly their own, which they continue to perfect and explore with each release as they dive deeper and deeper into collaborations with new vocalists, instrumentalists and producers.
