Bluetech set I can already predict will be very lucid, elevating, and legendary. Stoked on my first IAMNOBODI’s set as I’m a fan of the Soulection crew. Looking forward to Project Aspect live set in a hot minute, I’m sure he will throw down some magic. I am especially stoked to check out my friend Ricky’s (The Digital Connection) set as he always impresses! I haven’t experienced a live set since his last one in Austin, TX, stoked to listen some new , esp that new drippy downtempo ( Chasing The Midnight Sky release). Present now speaking, I am embarking on a continued journey into my old stomping grounds, Boulder, Colorado, next week for the rest of Winter and am eager to experience a Cervantes show (Denver) for the first time in a few years.
Sonic Bloom’s initial lineup will be revealed on January 11th, so be sure to stay tuned, as they are known for giving light to rising talent stemming from all over the underground electronic scene. Having already announced 2 nights with the legendary Tipper, they are expected to gear growth through innovation and consistent lineups full of dope, eclectic, and underground gems.
Sonic Bloom 2015
Listen to The Digital Connection – Chasing The Midnight Sky ( released September 2015 ) out on Gravitas. Experience a full-length album, 10 tracks, full of fresh downtempo feels, Ricky Shine is continually perfecting his craft. Embodying fresh underground talent with eclectic creation through music production, he always puts forward a next level phase. The chillout side of The Digital Connection is immersed with emotive depth, acoustic instrumentation, psychedelic vibes, and bass magic.
Michal Menert just released his new full length release, Even If It Isn’t Right, today on Pretty Lights Music for FREE. If you’re a fan of Michal Menert or the sound that Pretty Lights represents I highly recommend grabbing this right NOW!
I had the pleasure of meeting Michal over WMC this year and got to kick it with him and take a glimpse into what the future holds on his side of things. This album defies a lot of the norm for most releases and tells his story in this long composition. Spending a few days with him and his manager I knew that I had to help them out. It’s not very often you come across such a talented artist with the ideals and vision that Michal has.
He’s your regular guy who likes to play video games, chill, make music, and eat tons of sushi. His story is quite a unique one and he’s the only person who could say that early Pretty Lights music was composed of Derek and Michal. It’s something that I believe isn’t noted enough.
I had the pleasure of being in Denver for Menert’s debut of his new fancy projection mapped stage. The moment I walked into Cervantes I was totally blown away. The team that put together is the same team that has put together Pretty Lights past stages but this one has been taken to a whole new level. The dedication and effort put behind Michal Menert is second to none. It’s a honor to have been brought in to take part of it. There’s much ahead and can’t even describe to you how incredible the experience was that night except by showing you a video of how wild it all came out below. The video was done by the Swaager team/website and is only a small glimpse into this magical stage represented by mountain like structures with a sun/moon center where Michal performs in front of. The lasers, video clips, and seamless combination of music and visuals are some of the best I’ve ever seen in my life.
Dear promoters of all locations. This show and stage will be touring in the Fall. I HIGHLY recommend picking this up. It’s one of the most amazing stages I’ve seen. The production levels is on par if not higher than Pretty Lights and other projection mapping stages out there. Cervantes was completely slammed and no one had any idea that the stage was being showcased for the most part.
