ARISE Music Festival 2017 – MHSM Recap & Review
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.

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.
