Musical doublets David van der Leeuw and Luigi Vittorio Jansen are two talents from the city of Amsterdam who combined forces and got together in 2008. As a DJ and producer unit they began operating under the name Beesmunt Soundsystem and haven’t looked back since.
What sets them apart is their unique approach when they are in the DJ booth controlling the music and navigating the crowd. Their versatility allowed them to play at a plethora of places, from bars to clubs, fashion shows to festivals. At the mere age of 18, both gentlemen already had their own night at the famous Paradiso venue. As the rep grew bigger, so did the crowds, the parties and the festivals (Lowlands, Welcome to the Future, Amsterdam Dance Event, Dekmantel), even taking them across the border: Paris, London, Bristol, Cannes, Berlin, Antwerp, Istanbul, Lausanne, Bern and Malta are just a selection of places they’ve blessed with their original sounds.
In April 2014 they released their third EP named “The Baby Maker EP’ on the Bristol based Just Jack label. Through ‘The Baby Maker’ Beesmunt Soundsystem gained the right attention to play at clubs and festivals like: Corsica Studios(LDN), Chalet(BER), Just Jack(BRS), Soenda and Mysteryland just to name a few.
Today we exclusively premiere the title track ‘Raindance’ to Beesmunt Soundsystem’s latest EP. The track starts with thick and fattened kick drums, while ticking clicks, 808 modulation percussion and one hit bass getting gnarlier and more stripped back on every 4th beat, evoking the sweaty vibes that characterised their raucous parties back at home.
‘Raindance’ EP is available 31 July on Pets Recordings.
