The Upbeats

aka Downie Wolf and Terror Snake, Crushington


As the 2000s began, Dylan Jones (aka Downie Wolf) and Jeremy Glenn (aka Terror Snake), the New Zealand electronic music producer/DJ duo better known as The Upbeats, were finding their way into Wellington’s underground drum & bass scene.

From the moment they arrived through their storied residency at Valve (now Valhalla), they brought a new energy that audiences almost instantly responded to.
