Planet Jumper

Planet Jumper

AUS (Slap Gravity Records, Lightspeed Records, Smash Bang Records)
Planet Jumper is a Melbourne based production duo consisting of Steve Ford (Beat “Conductor”/ DJ) Drew Schapper (Drummer/Percussionist/Rimshot technician). Planet Jumper fuse funk, hip-hop, dub, disco, house and techno to create inventive music that is driven by low slung, driving bass lines, liquiefied wah guitar, sticky synth lines, wild percussion and an overwhelming desire to start the party. Inspired by timeless music and classic cultural antagonists, Planet Jumper takes its musical cues from the past, while always looking to push their sound sonically into the future. Planet Jumper’s live performance featuring heavy live drumming and percussion, is a hyper frenetic, energetic show, predicated on the swift and continual live remixing of original Planet Jumper productions. Signed to Agent 86’s “Lightspeed Records” Planet Jumper released their first EP in 2010 “Stick Back” which included both original music and remixes. Since then Planet Jumper has released its “Leave This Place Behind EP” on Slap Gravity with remix duties being handled by Scottish production/DJ legends Optimo. Planet Jumper’s music has also been featured on the legendary Revolver ‘Late Show’ artist compilation (2011). They have future releases on both “Smash Bang” (AUS), “Bear Funk/Valley Sound” (UK) and additional releases on vinyl through Slap Gravity. Planet Jumper has a wealth of festival (Rainbow Serpent, Maitreya, Somatica, St Kilda Fest, Fringe Fest etc), club and party rocking experience and believe their dynamic and above all funky sound would be well suited to what will be a vibrant and exciting festival.
