Untamed Youth have just announced that the next foreign act to grace their danceflloor will be UK & Swedish DJ/Producer duo, Punks Jump Up, who are set to play at Fiction on 15 November. While the weekly event usually takes place on a Tuesday, Untamed Youth have moved this particular installment to a Saturday; to cater appropriately for the special occasion no doubt. They will also be playing in Johannesburg on Friday 14 November at the End Is Nigh reunion party at Alex Theatre.
Punks Jump Up are Londoner, Joe Attard, and Swede, David Andersson. They have been hard at work for some time now and have gained serious traction and critical acclaim for tracks such as ‘Feels Good’, ‘Get Down (Special CCCrash Mixxx)’ and ‘Dance To Our Disco’, but are perhaps even more popular for their successful official remix of Miike Snow’s ‘Animal’, as well as others for Crystal Castles, St. Lucia, Two Door Cinema Cub, Ladyhawke, Lykke Li and Peter, Bjorn & John to name a few.
Untamed Youth co-organiser, Wayde Herman, expressed his excitement by referring to their remix of ‘Animal’ as the track that converted him to Indie Dance. It’s clear (as it should be) that there is a lot of time and passion that has gone into the organising of this event, which should prove to be one to remember.
Keep an eye out for the announcement of the local line-up and further details.
