Krooked Drivers have been on my radar for the past year, as they have consistently released awesome tracks and have been making their name in the live industry through their energetic stage presence and song choice as well as the unmistakable synergy between Donnie and Maddy. Their new album is called "The Collection" and it has some of their most inspiring work to date; it's filled to the brim with talented features, emotional lyrics and of course those dirty Krooked beates we've come to know and love so much. Krooked Drivers have always been very influenced by hip-hop, and this album takes t… Read More
Texas based musician Ben Walker has caught the attention of many with his new unique take on electronic music. Producing and performing under the name Subtact, he’s consistently put out banger tracks making heads turn with each release. Making his way into the scene only 9 months ago, Subtact has built a following of listeners with his blend of video game resembling future bass. With tracks released on Monstercat to rave reviews at just 17 years old, Walker shows no indication of slowing down.
Developing his talents and love for music from his father, music has been a part of Walker’s life… Read More
As we approach the latter half of sunny festival season, and gear up for the winter long months of indoor raves with their darker appeal, we begin to take stock of our amazing experiences together and the artist sets who facilitated them. Now I won't get too nostalgic just yet because we still have a solid two months of festivals left in our calendars. What I will do is give you a compiled list of producers that have made waves over the past year or two and have caught our attention over at Global Dance. If you have not had a chance to see these five producers yet, you'll want to get on that b… Read More
For anyone starting out on the creative side of the EDM industry, you may relate to how daunting it feels just trying to "break into the biz." Which is why big name producers like Tëisto often support newcomers like 18-year-old Martin Garrix on tour, or Skrillex enlists his platform Nest HQ for what he see as solid, upcoming talent.
Well, Marshmello seems to be jumping on this band wagon, despite the face that her/his identity has not even been officially released. The mystery producer has taunted us with amazing new tracks week after week, but recently a contest has been announced for his/he… Read More
Doctor P is a name we all know. Co-founder of UK-based Circus Records and the man behind classics like “Sweet Shop” and “Tetris”, there is no denying he is one of the pioneers behind the explosion of the international dubstep scene. The music he produces is a distinguishable combination of heavy bass paired with catchy melodies. We had a chance to sit down with the Doctor (known to his friends and family as Shaun Brockhurst) before his set at this year’s Global Dance Festival in Colorado. Not only is he undeniably passionate about his music, but he is also humble and extremely easy-going. It w… Read More
Hailing from England with his mystifying and unique blend of sounds comes Duskus, future bass prodigy. This Global Endorsed artist has been speaking volumes with his game changing songs. Born Simon White, the young producer released his first track nearly a year ago on soundcloud and has been steadily growing ever since. His first debut label release on Elysian Records only six months ago was his surreal single “Outer Space”. The track takes listeners on an interplanetary adventure and with a sound that is original and unheard, Simon is changing the game of electronic music and what’s coming f… Read More
Show Review by Sumeet Pawar, APIS Photography
After coming off a flight from Vegas into Denver, all I wanted to do was stretch across my bed and sleep. But I had no longer than 8 hours to prepare for a road trip to my first camping festival: Electric Forest. Laundry, picking up last minute gear, marinading steaks, packing snacks; all of this had to be done before my departure. It was a long road ahead...18 hours to Chicago to pick up a couple friends, and 4 more hours to Rothbury from there. That was plenty of time to break up my post-Vegas daze.
Once finally at the venue, it was clear we wo… Read More
Next year, do yourself a favor. Skip the Coachella "fuster cluck" and head over to Austin, Texas for a much more intimate camping festival. That's exactly how I chose to kick off my festival season this past year, and I never been more fired up to become apart of the "Euphoria Tribe." In fact, the experience felt a bit like being born again into EDM.
Don't get me wrong, I cherish Coachella for it's committment to all types of music and it's glamorous boho appeal. But after I feasted my eyes on the impressive line-up rounding out Euphoria Music and Camping Festival, I remember distinctly think… Read More
I am proud to be from Colorado. We have access to so many amazing outdoor activities, the city of Denver is hustling and bustling with amazing people, and the amount of top-notch music events we have is impressive. That said, I didn’t know how big things outside of Colorado could get. Shows at Red Rocks will always have a special place in my heart, but I recently was able to experience the way California does things… AND WOW. Beyond Wonderland: SoCal at the San Manuel Amphitheatre showed me how incredibly epic EDM can get.
The first day of the festival had a bit of a late start. My group a… Read More
Infected Mushroom, as you may have noticed due to past posts, is my favorite of all the DJs. They’ve carved a niche for themselves in the electronic world as being constant innovators with an ever-evolving sound and progressive stage shows that are truly a sight to behold. Well, guess what Denver, they’re bringing their weirdo, crazy warbles and blurps to the Ogden this Saturday! But there’s a twist…

As they have done in the past, Infected Mushroom is bringing their music to you completely live on this tour. That’s right, the psychedelic trancers are bringing a whole band with them to recreat
Vermont-based Electro soul producer Marvel Years is back again with one of his futuristic takes on classic rock, this time remixing "Shining Star" by Earth, Wind & Fire. As is highly characteristic of these particular bootleg remixes of his (see: Gimme Shelter, Eminence Front, Ohio), Marvel Years keeps the original classic in tact, emphasizing its catchy horns and synths over a freshly renovated bassline.… Read More
Surprises are my favorite. So when I say that Bass Physics played the most memorable set of Global Dance's Decadence HANDS DOWN ... I mean it's surprising only because I am not usually attracted to the glitchy qualities of their electro-soul sound. As for my glitch-hop bass heads out there, you may have been equally as surprised to see that the Denver based-duo's set (whom opened day two of the NYE massive in Denver) was more commercial sounding than their most recent EP, Where Do We Turn.
That is what makes their most recent remix of Echosmith's "Cool Kids" stand out right now -- because i… Read More
