I think I was probably the only person in the world to be haunting for this track for so long xD
So I've heard "The Beat" first time in March 2019 as and ID in this FANTASTIC mix from Billy for "On The Sesh" (which was my most listened set of the last year):

ON THE SESH Presents Billy Gillies ('The Beat' is starting from 21:16)
https://soundcloud.com/ontheseshuk%2Fon-the-sesh-presents-billy-gillies
It instantly became my favourite tune of that mix and I just couldn't stop listening to it multiple times in a day and jump in my room like crazy xD After sending multiple messages/comments to Billy Gillies and having no replies I was just thinking about the only solution which is hearing it at Luminosity Beach Festival 2019 where Billy was in the lineup.
So during the first day of Luminosity Beach (27th of June) something amazing happened - while I was eating breakfast with my friend in a random Zandvoort cafe I noticed David Rust just passing by and going inside the same cafe. I just couldn't resist and stopped him, we talked for a bit, he was obviously happy to meet his fan, and of course I asked him if he knows about this Billy Gillies track "bang to the beat of the drum". He actually said "ah we're going to play it with Shugz". I was shocked and happy, asked him about the name, he told me "the beat, just don't spoil it in the media" xD
So it was amazing to hear it the first day of Lumi, but in 2 days (Saturday 29th of June) Billy played it as well, and I was loving that feeling of knowing the tune everyone else didn't know xD

p.s. you can spot the most jumpy guy in the front middle during this tune at the both videos, that was me xD
