New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Emily Tan Media Relations)
Having conquered Australia, the electro-rock band comprising L.A.-based DJ/production duo Chris Carter and Simon
Lewicki is ready to assail North America as the band Jump Jump Dance Dance. Roundly lauded by the Australian and UK music press for their self-titled studio album, Jump Jump Dance Dance (Ministry Of Sound Australia/Universal Music
Australia), the band is already setting off sirens as they erupt Stateside with "2.0," the first single from the album with radio edit mixed by Jack Joseph Puig, Grammy«-winning producer for Lady Gaga, Panic! At The Disco, U2 and The Black Eyed Peas.
Entirely self-produced, the album Jump Jump Dance Dance was mixed by industry heavyweights including Dave Sardy (Oasis, Soulwax); Mark Needham (The Killers, Bloc Party, 3OH!3); and Australian pop veteran, Sameer Sengupta (aka Poxy Music).
The "2.0" E.P. contains remixes by top dance and electronic producers. The Original Mix is a perfectly packaged electro-pop song with Lewicki's upbeat synths showcasing Carter's sinuous vocals, all set against a tightly wound and infectious beat. The Laidback Luke
Remix is a blistering sonic assault characterized by a thudding bassline, cinematic guitars and an animalistic beat that propel Carter's vocals to the front of any dancefloor. The Redial Remix is a tweaky electro delight that takes the essential elements of the original and fires them up with wobbly effects and heavy processing for maximum drama. The Jono Fernandez Remix is a muscular, prog-house gem full of lusty suspense. The Fare Soldi Remix is a quirky, funk-driven number as invigorating as it is bouncy. The Christian Luke Remix is a delicate, patiently melodic take on the original with dreamy loops that explode into filthy production at the chorus. The Rob Pix Remix absolutely thrills with a staccato, rhythmic syncopation that turns Carter's vocals positively glam.
As successful musicians and DJs/producers currently living in Los Angeles, Carter and Lewicki have a DJ's sensibility for rocking a party. With skills gleaned from years of DJing alongside the likes of David
Guetta, Franz Ferdinand, Tommie Sunshine
and the late DJ AM, Jump Jump Dance Dance (the band) has Carter on guitar and vocals, with Lewicki injecting a heavy dose of synthesizers and programming. A live drummer is also added to the band setup. The result is a high-energy, electro-pop show with a decidedly partylike atmosphere.
American audiences may already be familiar with the music of Jump Jump Dance Dance via the band's numerous licensing deals including an online campaign for Victoria's Secret's "Stringkini" swimwear line; music for Electronic Arts' FIFA 2011 games; music in Fox-TV Australia's fall season trailers for the hit TV shows, "Glee" and "America's Next Top Model"; and music in the Columbia Pictures
film, "The Roommate," starring Leighton Meister. The "2.0" single will also appear in the soon-to-be-released Ambush Entertainment film, "Answers To Nothing," starring Dane Cook
