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.
Unlimited Gravity took over the Hummingbird stage after him. Also debuting his new EP “Choose Your Direction,” this set was packed with high energy, hardcore glitch hop beats. Throwing down the glitchiest dub sounds infused with classical piano his set gave the audience all the feels. Next they brought up Steven Kuzma on a drum pad, to form the Unlimited Aspect band, the trio closed out the stage in raging fashion. Read More

Ryan Viser Debuts ‘Volumetric’ EP with MHSM Records
Ryan Viser’s new EP Volumetric, out May 23rd on MHSM Records, brings listeners through a four-track odyssey with sounds similar to those of Pretty Lights and GRiZ with his trumpet-laced bass, analog features, and hip hop and blues samples.
The first track, Silence, is uplifting, groovy, and energetic. The use of horns really bring it full circle and the looping of a woman singing is beautiful, full-bodied and has a little bit of old-school jazz vibes. It blends classic music and modern day electronic melodies together in an authentic way.
Next on the track, What It Means, is electronically focused, up-tempo, and fiery with a guitar solo as the center focus throughout. It’s amplitude doesn’t step back at any point – it bends in and out, begging you to feel the hymns.
N-Vision slowly pulls you forth, then drops a heavy dubstep beat in your face. It’s intense, angry almost, but expressive, and will undoubtedly pump anybody up. It cross-switches abruptly and changes shape, keeping you focused on the many sounds.
Last on the EP, History Will Judge, starts with a crescendo horn-driven note. It then goes into a layered hip-hop verse that comes out of nowhere and fits perfectly with the rhythm of the song. History Will Judge radically ends Volumetric, making listeners anticipate more of Viser’s musical vision.
