Bio

Jack and The Ripper are an electronic rock duo conformed by twin brothers: Daniel and David Barbedillo. JATR merge music, virtual reality, augmented reality, video, digital art and animation with a DIY ethos in all of of their work.  

On April 14, 2014, JATR released their first official album "Vol. 2". The LP received positive reviews from local media including blog 'Me Hace Ruido' listing "Vol. 2" as one of the best album releases of 2014.


The following year, the duo played Festival Marvin (05-16-15). A month before the show, JATR recorded and produced an Os Mutantes cover "The Dream is Gone" which sparked a positive review from Sergio Dias (Os Mutantes). Later this same year, JATR performed at the Franz Mayer Museum (09-27-15).

On April 19, 2016, Jack and The Ripper released their first Virtual Reality Music App Single "JATR VR" and headlined the first International Virtual Reality Festival in Mexico (08-26-16) where they debuted their first Augmented Reality Live Show.   

March 15, 2017, Jack and The Ripper headlined an official SXSW Showcase curated by Desert Daze Festival, Good Vibrations and Foro Indie Rocks. On July 3, 17, they released their second Virtual Reality App Single “JATRVR2” and on October 31, 17, the duo released their third Virtual Reality Single “Waves”.

August 3, 2018, JATR released their fourth Virtual Reality Experience “Homemade Lobotomy Live @ Milliways” and on October 12, 2018 the duo released their second LP “Waking Dream".  'NOFM-Radio' listed 'Homemade Lobotomy' as one of the best musical releases of 2018.

A very special connection between Jack and The Ripper can be wildly appreciated during their live performances where cathartic and frenetic shows are delivered by a pair of clones bashing guitar glitch solos and lasers through perplexing beautiful and vicious electronic atmospheres.
