Sonic Bloom 2017: The Unified Field Flourishes
Kicking off the summer festival season in Colorado this year, Sonic Bloom Festival returned for the 12th annual celebration of the “Unified Field”, Dubbed by Jamie Janover for its likeness to the access and use of free energies, this festival feels like home every time we return. For the third year in it’s new home, Hummingbird Ranch transformed into a blooming city of tents, art and transformational music. Blessing us with memories to cherish for a lifetime, fresh music performances and creativity across all mediums, the Sonic Bloom community came together with a weekend full of amazing people. Musicians, artists and fans alike, this festival provided the space for everyone to co-create for 4 magical days.
MHSM Artists at Sonic Bloom 2017
MHSM co-founder, ProJect Aspect welcomed us to the weekend of fun on Thursday at the Hummingbird Stage. Debuting his new EP “Cortex”, he would have blown the roof off if there had been one. Dropping one of the sickest sets of the weekend, his performance was original and hyphy. His new sounds combined with his masterful abilities of improv during his live set, made for an unforgettable experience. Kruza Kid also joined him on stage for a song, sharing his lyrical talent with the crowd.

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