1000 Beasts is an electronic producer & musician from Cork City who focuses on collaboration and creativity in all his works. Starting oﬀ producing electronic pop songs in 2017 and achieving great critical success, with frequent spins from stations such as Today FM, 2FM, Cool FM (NI) and even BBC Radio 1, including a live RTE Studio 8 session with Jenny Greene at 2FM.
He emerges with a debut double EP, due for split release in 2020, and drawing inﬂuences from artists such as Mr Jukes, Tom Misch, Flume and Kaytranada and a hi-tech live show that combines live looping, triggering and sampling with live vocals unlike anything in Ireland at present.
The track ‘5 Points’ was produced while 1000 Beasts was on tour with another artist and had two days off in Nashville, TN. Staying in a beautiful AirBnb in the district of 5 Points, sitting on the porch deep into the early morning one night, 1000 Beasts created the track for ‘5 Points’. 1000 Beasts explains: “there’s the sound of the siren of an ambulance playing throughout large sections of the track, this is because, despite having headphones on, I could hear an ambulance pass while I was producing the track, the sound suited, so I decided to record the siren on my iPhone and put it into the track.“
Excited with this, he reached out to upcoming Irish musician Alex Tierney to see if he would be interested in collaborating on the track. Following on from two writing sessions the following month when 1000 Beasts returned to Ireland, and ‘5 Points’ was born.
