Fool’s Gold rave heroes Jokers Of The Scene are going cross-continental this spring for their BATS OVER EUROPE tour, kicking off on May 8th in Ghent and running through the end of June in Barcelona.
The tour marks the proper European debut of the rising Ottawa DJ/production duo, and it couldn’t come at a better time. JOTS’ recent remixes for the likes of Flosstradamus, McLloyd, Acid Girls and Burns have been making waves in forward-thinking DJ sets and blog charts alike, and their signature anthem “Baggy Bottom Boys” continues to resonate in clubs worldwide, so much so that a “BBB” video and remix EP were commissioned by Fool’s Gold to keep the momentum going.
The JOTS sound continues to mutate from straight-up club bangers into a deeper, darker strain of electronic dance music that’s completely original and exciting. Be sure to catch them releasing the bats on tour: debuting new tracks, destroying dancefloors, and exploding minds!
Update: just in time for the tour announcement, Big Stereo posted up a live set from JOTS recent performance at the Infatuation party in SF. Download it here and check the Bats Over Europe tour dates after the jump.
