Goodbye Andy Jarrod…

AndyJarrod-Army

Its with great sadness that we have to inform you of the recent passing of ex 3 Beat employee Andy Jarrod. Andy a keen cyclist was out last Saturday the 9th August riding when he was involved in an accident with a car. He was left with severe head injuries which eventually took his life.

Andy joined the 3 Beat team in 2000 with the launch of 3 Beat label Management that looked after labels from the likes of James Holden, Yousef, Kasey Taylor and Matthew Dekay. 3 Beat label Management was also the home of 3 Beat Digital the online download store.  Andy was instrumental in the development of some of the industries greats.

Mark Betteridge of Change Underground has written a wonderful piece of how the industry remembers Andy.

We remember Andy as a funny, hard working, passionate and highly driven man with bags of knowledge. He left his mark on everyone he met.

Andy had recently become a father for the second time with twin girls. He also leaves a loving wife and a son. A fund raising charity has been set up in Andy’s name for the Cystic Fibrosis Trust – a condition his son Oscar has.

martin solveig – the night out

There aren’t many artists who can boast an audience topping over 110 million, but there is one such man who can – MARTIN SOLVEIG. Now synonymous with much of what the illustrious Frenchman does, the SMASH YouTube series that kicked started the success of ‘Hello’ almost 2 years ago, which just happens to be one of the biggest records in recent times, is back again with…’Episode 4: The Night Out’!

Released in conjunction with his next hit single “The Night Out” which debuted on April 2nd globally, this new installment sees Martin, with the help of trusty and some would say legendary ‘manageur’ Lafaille finally beginning to win over the heart of his longtime love, SHE. Featuring cameos from the likes of A-Trak, Laidback Luke, Sidney Samson, Madeon, Porter Robinson, Zedd and Dillon Francis– some of whom feature on the EP – this episode CANNOT BE MISSED! Having originally lost out to Gael Monfils in the battle for SHE months ago, the quest begins in earnest again as Martin and Lafaille create a special movie premiere for their first date. As with anything Martin’s ‘manageur’ touches, things do not go to plan… but with the help of scooters, boats and the Parisian scenery, can her heart be won over by the end of their night out?

“The Night Out” is the 4th single to be taken from the critically acclaimed album “SMASH”

sway – level up

Sway returns in style with his brilliant new single ‘Level Up’ on 8th April through 3 Beat Records. The track has been Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record In The World as well as getting the seal of approval from MistaJam.

Never one to conform to the norm, Sway constantly looks for ways to stand out from the crowd and he will have heads and ears turning with his latest offering. Combining Flux Pavilion’s speaker-oscillating dubstep production with Sway’s signature lyrical word-play and newcomer Kelsey McHugh’s soulful vocals on the hook, ‘Level Up’ brings a unique sonic to the table. “The song is about winning, elevation, going from one stage in your life to a better one,” explains Sway. “I wanted to the capture that moment and that feeling we get when we feel like we’ve achieved something that will change your life.” The collaboration with Flux Pavillion came about when Sway was introduced to the producer’s music by 1Xtra’s Semtex. Making contact with the producer via Facebook, Sway discovered Flux was a fan and within weeks the pair were working in the studio together.
