Life starts with a beat.the heartbeat. Music is in us and part of us. We are united by the beats. United Beats is a new label based out of San Francisco by Mad Maxx, Dual Core and Liam Shy. Passionate artists, world class production, an eclectic multi-genre sound,and audiophile quality . We represent uncompromising music created by handpicked artists from around the globe. Our sound has evolved from years of experience touring the dance floors and studios of the world as DJs, performers, and producers. We know what makes you dance.
Max: 2011 will be a year of great releases and collaborations for United Beats records. The concept behind the name is to literally ‘break the boundaries’ between genres in electronic music, focusing on creating a platform for artists to release all kinds of different styles of sound, and not just Trance. The label will be focusing on Trance releases until after summer of 2011 and then will start putting out Chill Out/Down Tempo, Progressive Trance, and various types of quality genres of music out to the world.
