Nobody Beats The Drum are in the front line of Dutch electronic dance music. The three-piece electro outfit consists of Sjam Sjamsoedin, Jori Collignon, and Rogier van der Zwaag sharing the stage. While Sjam and Jori produce all the music Rogier produces all the video projections. Together, the trio delivers a uniquely unforgettable live audio/visual experience that has brought them high praise from trendsetters such as Kanye West, Vice Magazine and more. NBTD made their way to North America in 2012 for the finest in independent and electronic music gatherings, including SXSW, Ultra Music Festival, Sasquatch Music Festival, Governors Ball, Electric Forest, and Quebec City Summer Festival.
To fully appreciate their fusion of breaks, electro, hip-hop and every other form of music that whips a crowd up into a sweaty, writhing heap of body parts, it’s best to see NBTD live where the pounding music is enhanced by their one-of-a kind over-the-top visuals.
Known for years as the most exciting electronic act in The Netherlands, NBTD introduced the next level to their live stage-setup at the 2011 Amsterdam Dance Event, the Amazing 333” TeleNovem Automaton, a bombastic 9 screen installation on which Rogier’s live visual art is mapped and projected while Sjam and Jori simultaneously let the music explode. In 2012 NBTD will perform music from their pounding second album, Currents, as well as their debut, Beats Work, both of which critically-acclaimed throughout Europe. In 2013 NBTD will release brand new music via Ultra Music. Accompanied by a stunning visual show mixed live to their music Nobody Beats The Drum is sure to be a name on any EDM fan’s lips across the world in short order.
Resistance is futile – Nobody. Beats. The Drum.
