Navigating the rare and coveted middle ground that separates live performance from 4-to-the-floor, The Caulfield Beats commit the soul of a DIY garage band to the vision of speaker cone bass. Spontaneity versus repetition, organic versus mechanical, the uncontrolled versus the restrained, this is the sound of a band unafraid to dismantle 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. A two-piece that belongs to a generation of producers for whom music studios came in the form of illegal software torrents. Production was strictly DIY. In a zeitgeist extending beyond music they were driven into the itinerant boat-based lifestyle of London’s waterways from where they conduct their activities and play impromptu warehouse parties. Already reputed for their visually immersive gigs featuring custom live projections, The Caulfield Beats are questioning the traditional separation of dance music from live bands, and in the process, are causing quite a stir.
