Beastie Respond is the production alias of Tobias Hjørnet. He first encountered Drum’n’Bass through the Drum&BassArena podcasts, which he randomly stumbled upon in the iTunes Store. Listening to a Renegade Hardware showcase mix got him hooked on the raw and energetic music.
The first step for many is to start DJing and then turn to production but it was the other way around for Tobias, who start...ed off as a producer. With a background as a drummer in a Reggae and Ska band and a great interest in music production this was a natural progression for him. When Tobias went behind the decks it was with a mission to push the deeper side of Drum’n’Bass, where tempo is the key defining factor.
Beastie Respond is still up-and-coming as a DJ in the Copenhagen but with a residency at the hotspot Dunkel Bar you will surely hear more from him and his sound in the future. His club night will kick off in July with a Critical Music label night featuring Kasra and Sabre.
