Navigating that rare and coveted middle ground that usually separates live gigs from 4 to the floor, The Caulfield Beats give the spirit of a DIY garage band to a vision of speaker cone bass. Spontaneity vs. repetition, organic vs. mechanical, the uncontrolled vs. the restrained - this is the sound of a band not afraid to dismantle and toy with the idea of what dance music can be. It's called 'garage electronics' and will appeal to the indie kids as much as lovers of acid and techno.

The Caulfield Beats are Lawrence Northall and Molly Dixon. This two-piece belongs to a generation of producers for whom music studios came in the form of illegal software torrents and production was strictly DIY.

With live visual projections and already reputed for their visually immersive gigs, The Caulfield Beats are making us reconsider our traditional separations of dance music from live bands and in the process causing quite a stir.
