Freddy Todd & S.P.E.C.T.R.E. | Honey, I Crunk’d Tha Kidz

time September 25th by John-Michael authorTags: , , , , , ,

Freddy Todd & S.P.E.C.T.R.E collaborate on two massive tracks for all of you to enjoy. It’s been some time since we’ve heard some new material from Reuben but damn he hasn’t lost his touch by any means. I saw his set at Sonic Bloom and damn I’m glad I came over despite Tipper being on the main stage. Freddy just put out another full release out recently that has everyone excited. These two power houses might have just messed around a few days and put this together but the result is an incredible two track EP. I’d love to see more of these appear. Everyone is traveling around hanging out while playing shows and sometimes results in a few colab tracks. I think I speak for everyone when I say that more people should be throwing these small EPs together and just throw them on Bandcamp or Soundcloud for the fans to enjoy.

Honey, I Crunk’d Tha Kidz and Space Cowboy are two extremely hype tracks filled with crunk’d up vocals. The energy that these two create is spectacular and perfect for any headlining slot. I’ve been droppin Space Cowboy and damn it goes off. I love the subtle intro it has and eventually builds into this bangin tune. Not to mention got to love the ’cause i’m a space cowboy’ sample!

Here is a preview for you all. It will be officially released on the 27th of September on Bandcamp. Expect much more from S.P.E.C.T.R.E and especially Freddy Todd.

Project Aspect & Dj Rex | Artist Feature

time October 19th by John-Michael authorTags: , , , , , , , , ,

There are two things when I think of Denver. The fact that smoking out there is decriminalized and the amount of music/talent out there in unbelievable.

Today I wanted to showcase two producers who probably don’t get enough exposure. Project Aspect & Dj Rex.

I’ve been playing out plenty of Project Aspect tunes for awhile now and since I’ve been backed up for awhile and figure give some spotlight on him. He recently just put out a new tune on his SC page and it’s banging. Be sure to keep an eye out on this guy and anyone for that matter part of DBS (Denver Bass Squadron).

Next up is Dj Rex. I had always seen his name around soundcloud but not till he submitted some tunes to my group did I realize how much I was sleeping on this guy. He has done some amazing remixes and reworks not to mention some fresh originals. He is another producer that deserves some respect but so easy to forget in the sea of talent in Denver.

Here are mixes from both of these Colorado boys. Both will take you on a thrill ride of dubstep & glitch-hop.

All this talk about Denver really has me thinking about finally visiting Denver. I’m sure ski season is about to start so be sure to check out where these guys are playing out in Denver if you going for a ski trip. I assure you that the mecca for glitch-hop right now is Denver/Boulder area. Yes, I said it not LA.

Off the top of my head some other Denver/Boulder producers/DJs that validate my statement that it’s the mecca: Pretty Lights, Vibesquad, Ben Samples, Greg Fisk, S.P.E.C.T.R.E, Jantsen, Willy Whompa, Omega, Unlimited Gravity, and many more… Much love to all the homies out there!

Ben Samples – Snowstorm EP

time May 2nd by John-Michael authorTags: , , , , , , , , ,


May 18th, 2010 will be the day I believe Ben Samples will begin his Legendary status. Samples is one half (Fisk the other half) of the live remix project Fresh2Death/Girlfriend Bullshit that is based out of Boulder, CO.

Samples is on top of the game and is ready to explode. He is a prolific crunk glitch-hop producer. He brings it hard with his bass-heavy remixes of your favorite club anthems. Ben started his DJ career in 2006 when he picked up a weekly variety radio show for CU Boulder’s KVCU.  He played many styles and genres, with a focus on dance music and hip hop. At the end of the day if anyone ask me what is glitch-hop or what does glitch-hop sounds like I point them in the direction of Mr.Ben Samples.

Samples is a member of the Denver Bass Squad, which is the essential crew that runs the bass scene in the Denver/Boulder area. It is worth mentioning that DBS will be a crew you will all know about soon… Spectre, Fisk, and Samples have been on a rampage releasing serious bombs! Don’t be surprised when you see the top selling tracks on there all from DBS members on the Additech charts.

Pick up the new EP put out by Mochipet’s label Daly City! It’s on pre-release here & check out Samples mini-mix of the EP!

S.P.E.C.T.R.E. – Bad Girls Go To Hell EP

time April 24th by John-Michael authorTags: , , , , , , , , ,


Reuben Garst is S.P.E.C.T.R.E! This man is a hidden superstar. I had the pleasure of getting to book him for my first event ever at WMC this year. This guy is the real deal people. A member of Denver Bass Squadron (DBS) & Founder of Basslab. This man does it all from production, DJ, promoter, and one BMF.

This release is straight heat!
I’ve been waiting for this to come out for awhile. Ever since I heard VIP Bass ft. Ben Samples appear on Soundcloud I knew that Spectre had to be part of the event I was planning.

He absolutely tore it up at Slippery! I’ll never forget that mash up of Joker vs Biggie he dropped that night. Not only is this man a dope DJ and producer he’s a great human being. He spit some serious knowledge and tips on everything. Without a doubt I’m glad I had the chance to meet him and become friendly with him.

Best of luck to him, he definitely bust his ass for the community!
Be sure to pick up the release over at Addictech!
