Joe Attard and David Anderson have been operating as Punks Jump Up since 2004, when their breakout single Be Your (Beep Beep) made its way into sets from leading players like Erol Alkan and James Murphy. Since then, the duo has formed an alliance with tastemaker supremos Kitsuné to release Dance To Our Disco and Blockhead, two dancefloor-burning records that were also picked up by some of the biggest DJs in disco, house and electro.
It’s remixes where PJU have notched up some A-list credits, putting a spin on Ladyhawke, Lykke Li, Digitalism, Miami Horror, Yelle, Ladytron, Crystal Castles, Tiga, Miike Snow, Gossip and Robyn to name a few. 2012 has seen the duo release Get Down alongside former member of The Rapture Mattie Safer, and the crossover-worthy single Mr Overtime featuring the distinctive vocals of Chromeo’s Dave1. Kicking off in Perth, the tour packs in six dates across a couple of weekends. Prepare to disco.
