Bio

I was the first person to play you Basement Jaxx; I was the first DJ to play you Dizzee Rascal; Now I’m going to play you my latest discoveries – The Young Punx” – Annie Nightingale on BBC Radio 1.
Irreverent, funny, intelligent, chaotic, and totally dedicated to the cause of good music, The Young Punx transform the traditional boundaries within which electronic dance music is produced and performed.
Headed up by multi-instrumentalist producer Hal Ritson (Musical Director of Dizzee Rascal’s BBC Electric Proms show), with right hand deck lieutenant Nathan Taylor (Former A&R at Positiva), drummer Simon Bettison, and wide variety of eclectic collaborators, their productions, DJ sets and live shows switch effortlessly from shimmering French House to soaring Italo-Disco, Dirty Electro, Drum and Bass and every other genre in-between.
“The Young Punx are redefining musical cool” – EQ Magazine
The Young Punx’ boundless energy and infectious enthusiasm for all forms of music is also reflected worldwide in their weekly live webcasts and their peerless podcasts which capture the banter and carnage of a weekend’s clubbing, whilst showcasing the best in new dance music and where over 10,000 listeners go each month to satisfy their cravings for riotous jumbo bass.
“Breaks, pop, disco, drum & bass, opera and surf are all thrown in to create a giddying bombardment that doesn’t let up once throughout… a good-time party soundtrack ” – IDJ
Their unique blend of deck high jinxs and tricks makes them in-demand DJs fuelling amazing tunes in parties at some of the world’s biggest clubs including gigs in Ibiza supporting Tiësto at Privilege and at Pacha for Erick Morillo’s Subliminal Sessions; Ministry of Sound and Fabric in London; Womb, AgeHa, Warehouse and Onzieme in Japan, and at Glastonbury, SummerSonic, Sziget, Urban Arts Festival and many more of the world’s greatest festivals.
“Talented beat alchemists…exhilarating stuff” – Music Week
