- Hot off the heels of their unreleased leaked studio jam, Do It For
Love, (Bigstereo #1; FBI A Rotation; “Summer anthem.” Sam La More;
“JJDD rule my world and will soon rule yours” Mikah Freeman, The Aston
Shuffle), duo Jump Jump Dance Dance present their debut single
Show Me The Night.
- A driving slice of punk-funk magic, Show Me The Night
was mixed by heavyweight US producer/mixer Dave Sardy (the man responsible for
records from Wolfmother, Oasis, Soulwax and The Ting Tings).
- The track marks their music video debut with a phenomenal clip
directed by hot-as-hell LA director Claire Carre (best known for her
stunning clip for SIA’s Soon We’ll Be Found).
- Touring Australia nationally in February/March, playing live for
Future Music Festival.
- Released 26th February on etcetc.


It’s unusual for an up and coming band to have a pedigree as impressive
as that of Los Angeles electro-rock conspirators Jump Jump Dance Dance.
But as it stands, the duo of Chris Carter and Simon Lewicki had amassed
a wealth of experience – Carter as an in-demand DJ and vocalist who has
played alongside such luminaries of the LA scene as DJ AM and Tommie
Sunshine, and Simon as the mastermind behind the celebrated club acts
Groove Terminator, Tonite Only and Chili Hifly – before uniting to
create Jump Jump Dance Dance.

But Jump Jump Dance Dance isn’t about rehashing former glories, as
glorious as they may be. Instead, it’s an all-new beast with its own
unique energy and style. First coming together over a shared love of
synthesizers, Australian culture and sweaty dance floors, the renowned
studio wizards began to furiously write the blueprint of the Jump Jump
Dance Dance sound, exploring and tweaking the happy medium between dance
and rock music. Clearly, the pair were onto something special as their
first batch of demos immediately hooked Australian imprint etcetc - the
home of PNAU (producers of Empire Of The Sun) and Lost Valentinos
(helmed by super-producer Ewan Pearson) as well as internationals Mylo,
Datarock and The Knife.

Determined to once-and-for-all perfect the ultimate hybrid between these
two often-disparate genres, the duo elevated themselves above the
electro scene by turning Jump Jump Dance Dance into a fully-fledged,
truly organic live band where instantaneous guitar riffs collide with
towering synths and club energy.

The duo’s fascination with melding genres carried over to the recording
process for their debut LP, which saw them recruit heavyweight US
producer/mixers Dave Sardy (the man responsible for records from
Wolfmother, Oasis, Soulwax and The Ting Tings) and Mark Needham (The
Killers, Bloc Party, 3OH!3), as well as Australian dance industry
veteran Sameer Sengupta (a.k.a. Poxy Music a.k.a. Pocket 808, provider
of legendary mixes for Alter Ego and Green Velvet) to lend his
formidable experience to some final mixes.

The first bolt of dancefloor lightning to impact was the unreleased
leaked studio jam, Do It For Love, a blue-eyed slice of funk that has
sent hearts swooning across the blogosphere (Bigstereo #1) and the club
circuit (“Summer anthem.” Sam La More; “A most excellent project”
Goodwill; “JJDD rule my world and will soon rule yours” Mikah Freeman,
The Aston Shuffle). But the it’s duo’s deliriously good debut single
Show Me The Night which is set to put this band on the map, not to
mention their stream of floor-ready remixes for La Roux, Zoot Woman, and
etcetc label-mates MSTRKRFT.

With their debut album under lock and key for the moment, Jump Jump
Dance Dance are preparing to spread the electro-rock gospel to new fans
with killer live shows and a slew of turbo-charged remixes on the way.
Although it’s still very early days for the band, Jump Jump Dance Dance
aren’t wasting any time in showing us all exactly why they’ve come so
far so quickly. Expect to get converted any minute now.
