Jeff Jump Up Keddy
Jeff ‘Jump Up’ Keddy started off in the party scene in Dallas, Texas and quickly moved across North America – Baltimore MD, San Diego CA, and Denver CO all throughout the late 90’s, then finally landed in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Not only has Jeff perfected his technical skills over the years, but he has learned to bring a jump up energy with him that brings crowds to their feet and beyond! Intuitive to the crowd he puts on a show t
hat leaves the party-goer sopping in sweat and covered in pure satisfaction.
Fractal Code is the evolution of CoolTrainerCody. Well, CoolTrainerCody is still traveling through the digital pokemon world creating beats and laughing. Fractal Code comes into play to show the Psy world digemonic beats. A creature that knows how to travel through a cosmic realm of Deep Glitch and Bass so well that you can't help to groove to. With high energy on the stage, Fractal Code is a electronic psy show that brings psychedelic funky beats and energy that will leave a feeling of warmth to your brain and body..
Get ready for this boy to go B2B with Jeff Jump Up Keddy, bringing you to your feet as he did many at the Mushroom stage this year at Future Forest. If you can't tell, we love Future Forest here at Pussyweed...
