If you haven’t heard yet, the Denver based MHSM Artists Cloud-D and Resonant Language have started a collaboration project called “BrickSquash”. With only a handful of performances to date and a freshly released debut EP, the collab is starting to turn heads as these two sound design wizards compliment each of their talents and ability to get weird, in the best wobbly way possible. Keep an eye on all three of these projects, as neither of them show any signs of slowing down. With the debut of their 4-track EP ‘BrickSquash Mafia’, we can only expect some more to come.

The 4th Annual Suwannee Hulaween With Some Colorado Flavor
Halloween time is just around the corner. Soon the leaves will turn, the weather will be cool and crisp. Delectable Fall aromas will fill the air, as well as heaping loads of bass of varying FREAKquencies, at least for those attending the fourth annual Suwannee Hulaween. Vibes, tribes, ghosts, and ghouls will flood the spanish-moss draped scenery of The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park yet again for this spooktacular event, hosted by The String Cheese Incident, that has grown vastly popular in just a few short years. This sudden success comes as no surprise when you look at the legendary names that have graced the sacred Suwannee grounds since the introduction of Hula in 2013 – including STS9, Big Gigantic, Emancipator, Thievery Corporation, Shpongle, Pretty Lights, Primus, Griz and Odesza just to name a few, solidifying the event as one that integrates a multitude of genres and attracts patrons from all over the country.
EarthCry Enlightens Listeners Through His Modular Musical Realm
‘Sun Path’ is the latest solo album released by EarthCry— Anthony Thogmartin, Papadosio’s lyricist brainchild, producer, and guitarist. More than just a musical side project, Sun Path, is the second album in a progressive project dedicated to the fusion of experimental electronic music and an earth-minded movement. What’s truly unique about SunPath is Thogmartin’s exploration of the modular synthesizer. By manipulating the analog electric signal, it was possible to experiment and create vast organic and flowing sonic sounds. Representing Thogmartin’s own personal growth and journey to inspire, “sun path”, is a reference to the positional changes of the sun and solar energy that is emitted as our Earth rotates and orbits around the sun.

Boulder Based Trio, Spectacle, Releases ‘LUCI’ EP
The Boulder based trio, Spectacle, has caught our eye this year. With a unique and original sound, they blend in quite well with a Colorado sound that we have began to enjoy. The first got on our radar when they supported Lucid Vision & Skydyed at the Bluebird Theatre in Denver, earlier this January. Since then, they have performed various shows at Cervantes’ and it has been fun watching this group grow musically. We wanted to help this growing band spread their music a bit, so we hope you enjoy the music and you can read some quotes from the band below. Read More
Sonic Bloom Brings Music & Art Lovers Together In Colorado Under The Unified Field
Colorado’s premiere electronic music festival, Sonic Bloom, had it’s 11th annual gathering this past June, and this music and art filled extravaganza packed a whole new kind of punch this year. For the second year, the festival returned to Hummingbird Ranch just outside of Rye, Colorado. A mega-stacked lineup full of Bloom favorites such as Tipper (2 sets) and The Opiuo Band, as well as Bonobo (DJ set), EOTO, Break Science and Wick-It The Instigator. The amount of local talent practically covered the entire spectrum of West Coast electronic music, courtesy of the best in the Colorado music community. As eclectic as the origins of the headliners are, the core of this festival is supported directly by the natives of the magical state of Colorado, those who rep it on their sleeve day in and day out in the studio and on stage. Some of the highlighted Colorado acts who performed were Michal Menert & The Pretty Fantastics, SunSquabi, VibeSquaD, Bass Physics, The Reminders, Mikey Thunder, SoDown, Cloud-D, Dynohunter, Templo, Skydyed, Cualli, The Dirty Gemstones, Lily Fangz, Evanoff, Tnertle, Godlazer and a surprise performance by Unlimited Aspect.
The Colorado based artist collective and record label, The Mile High Sound Movement, is no stranger to this Summer tradition, as numerous artists that are part of the collective have been prevalent within this year’s lineup and previous years as well. The MHSM members and bass music engineers Ronnie Weberg and Jay Jaramillo, aka Unlimited Gravity and Project Aspect, became a part of this event’s journey in 2008. This was just the starting line for this grassroots collective of now over 30 artists, which is proven by their relevancy within Sonic Bloom’s array of talent over the years since it’s origin.
