Mindful Massive is a collective stemming from South Lake Tahoe, California since 2011. Founded and inspired by Ryan Kandell, aka: Irieyes, they’re known for their eclectic, fresh, and awe-inspiring conscious events, they are known for massive elevating growth, from a event production stand point and from an inside-out experience. The crew also engages in lighting, staging and design, sound, concert touring, and visual craft! Their mission is “to create, inspire, and invent new ways to bring music to the Massive.” I first heard of the Mindful Massive crew Winter of 2014 when I was writing Nas-Ja’s bio!
I was definitely inspired when I was traveling around that region of the U.S.A a few weeks ago, and was lucky enough to check out one of their events which featured Andreilien, Digital Rust, Dubcoling, Oneness, Blue Louie, Nas Ja, Subdocta, & Benjah Ninjah. The stage design was next level, very geometric via laser woodcut creation, two stages made for an ever growing experience as hundreds of music lovers danced away. A spectrum of kaleidoscopic lighting and psychedelic visuals were present, as they featured mind-altering visions through dope talent, Fractaled Visions and Sophos collaboration gave a balancing effect that was well received.

Sound was of high quality, smooth, crisp, and mind-expanding feel. Overall, the evening was an experience to be remembered. If you’re in California, or anywhere else in the United States, I highly suggest checking out one their gatherings as they’re as fresh as it gets. Mindful Massive is expanding their concert tour, so don’t be surprised if you start seeing this collective growing through the nation. Aside Mindful Massive, Ryan has recently jumped on board with the Re:Evolution family as a Talent Agent. His networks have been of continuous collaboration and growth, I’m eager to see the projects that Ryan continues to build within the artistic and creative underground.
