The electronic music Producer/DJ/Remixer act, comprising of London based DJ Nikki and Statis, have been locked away for a year working with acts including LA bass supremo Thundercat, UK rising star Meleka, Danish Soul singer Marie Dahlstrom and of course the vocal sensation Terri Walker who features on the first of their latest catalogue to grace the radio waves. ‘People Start Talking’ is a prime example of the Beatnik sound with an edgy and fresh take on Electro fused with elements of Hip-Hop, Trap, House and an attention seeking vocal that will not only seek, but grab your full attention.
Beatnik have a talent for making forward thinking music, which automatically intrigues the listener by maintaining a balance of production, genre infused elements and vocal collaborations.
