Interview With The Caulfield Beats
The Caulfield Beats are an East London based electronic garage trio who take inspiration from cut and paste DIY culture, poetry and literature (the band’s name is a nod to Catcher In The Rye’s protagonist Holden Caulfield).
As you’ll notice from their track Glitch Glitch Flame (which you can hear in our in-site boombox), the triumvirate have created a niche of their own, carving up swathes of electro, acid house, dub and techno and weaving them into a refreshingly peculiar and intriguing crossover sound that’s stacked with cheeky samples and chaotic cavortions, and is sure to appeal to hipsters, club kids, the independent press and radio DJs alike. The trio – Lawrence Northall, Molly Dixon and Charlotte Northall – released their highly-anticipated debut EP Garage Electronics Vol. I earlier this year through Antwerp’s brand new Noise Praise label. They are currently working on a second EP and their debut album.
We asked the bands some questions ahead of their slot at Secret Garden Party (25-28 July). They sourced their answers through archive copies of Myth, Man & Magic and Everyman’s Book Of Knowledge from the 1950s, 60s and 70s, and the images seem to sum up their trippy ethos and cut and paste sound perfectly.
