About

The Norwegian band Beatpop was formed in the summer of 2008, when the two members and life-long friends began making electronic music together. They are John Derek Bishop on funky beats and Jim Reve with his deep vocal. Being at first a fun and playful break from other projects, Beatpop is today the duo’s main output of creativity.

The music is like the name, a combination of beat and pop. The duo master an assortment of instruments and are also fearless in using any available but unfamiliar instrument. Their love for different genres is reflected in their music, and you can find – among other things – traces of soul, jazz, funk, and bluegrass in their music. With Bishop’s detailed, sophisticated, and open beats, and Reve’s searching lyrics and soulful vocal, Beatpop is both easy to enjoy at the first hearing, but also reveals depth and complexity when it is allowed to grow on the listener.
