ARISE Music Festival 2017 – MHSM Recap & Review

The 5th year of the Arise Music Festival was a magical experience for all in attendance. Fulfilling their schedule packed with music, transformational workshops, a weekend long hangout with incredible people, the festival stepped above and beyond our expectations. The rain didn’t dampen any of our spirits, and luckily we only experienced a few scattered showers throughout the whole weekend.

The beginning of most festivals starts out the same, everyone is in a hurry to get there for the fun, then we have to wait for hours in line just to get in and set up camp. The staff at Arise this year was fully prepared to make the expected horrendous wait quick and efficient. Usually having to wait a couple hours to figure out what’s going on to get in at most festivals, this years’ wait was under an hour for the early Friday arrivers. A fury of campers unloaded their camps, popped up tents, threw out their chairs and kicked back to wait for the Friday lineup to begin.

3 New ProJect Aspect Tracks To Get You Ready For Festival Season

Project Aspect, Co-Founder of The Mile High Sound Movement, out does himself with every new authentic track. Setting the bar high for fellow electronic producers, his new EP ‘Cortex’ is a musical journey for your ears and soul. Blending vocals with original sounds each song brings you to a new level. Staying true to his unique style, each song features a collection of genres ranging from drum and bass, glitch hop, dubstep and overall high quality bass. He takes the sounds he creates, layers them a multitude of ways in each track, and ultimately surprises you towards the end of each song with the most creative sounds imaginable. Each song contains new sounds that you have never heard before, and he refines them into the most party acceptable drops, leaving you feeling like you have just heard a miracle in your ears.

The first track “Vortex Complex” is a mix of space vibe sounds, upbeat drum and bass, and sucks you into the vortex of glitch. The use of higher pitched tubular sounds, slow-mo vocals, and different space between each sound blends perfectly to bring you to the vortex for every second of the song. Second on the EP, “Cheddar Cheese & Ice Cream” blends the vocals of Lyric Lee with mechanical sounds into a smooth experience. These unique sounds come back throughout the song but each time a little bit differently, giving a new genre feel for each segment. “Dime on my Nine,” the third track, starts out slow, pulling you in with a trippy future Egyptian vibe. Blending each of the elements of this high energy song masterfully, you’ve got to hang on until the end. Around the 4:00 minute mark, the build up leads into a drop and the final segment of the song, that should go down in the history of electronic music as one of the best.

Sonic Bloom is this weekend, be sure to catch Project Aspect for his set at the Hummingbird Stage on Thursday night at 12:00AM. And, stick around after his set for Unlimited Gravity at 1:00AM. Both will be debuting their new EPs. Read More

EarthCry: Anthony Thogmartin of Papadosio – Releases Solo Album ‘Sun Path’

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.

The sound of Sun Path can be described as visceral, soulful, and eclectic with a down-tempo mediterranean feel, catchy glitch-hop and funk elements, and seamless airy melodies. In addition to the electronic elements in the production of the album, Thogmartin, collaborated with a handful of musicians to incorporate indigenous instrumentation including flutes, djembes, tabla, and voiceover samples. Sun Path’s progressive and experimental union between electronic production via modular synths, and organic sounds through instrumentation and sampling is a truly a glimpse into the promising future and synthesis of music and technology.

EarthCry is performing in Denver at the MetLife Rooftop today, Monday evening August 8th. For more info click here. Read More

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.

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
