Fresh off his first Red Rocks show supporting Colorado favorite and pioneer in the scene, Pretty Lights, it looks like SoDown has no plans of slowing down. With the announcement of a small CO tour covering Denver, Grand Junction, Durango, Fort Collins and Boulder, MHSM was stoked to jump on the opportunity to showcase two of our artists, FunkStatik and UNFOLD Music, alongside the rising star, SoDown w/ support from Marvel Years, at Cervantes Masterpiece on 10/13.
This has been a big month for the MHSM family and Funkstatik and UNFOLD Music are at the forefront of the hype. Earlier this September, Funkstatik released “Distracted Focus”, a seamless album of mellow electro-funk bass music, while UNFOLD Music has also released “Alignment”, a chilled out, hip hop influenced 3 track EP. Both of these artists are sure to properly warm up the night in preparation for the soulful, saxophone ripping, bass music producing superstar, SoDown.
We caught up with Denver, Colorado based, Ehren Wright (SoDown), to get some insight about his current success, talk new music, and find out where he plans to go next in this musical journey.
-This year has been huge for you musically, are you able to pick a favorite show that you played in 2017 so far?
Red Rocks with Manic Focus and Pretty Lights. Red Rocks will always hold a special place in my heart. The first show I went to at Red Rocks steered me in the direction to make music, so it was a dream come true to play there.
-You just released your newest single, “With You”, can we expect a full album or EP in the near future?
Ahhhhh!!! I have so much unreleased music that I’m super excited about! I’m not sure how we are going to release the music yet, whether singles, or EPs, probably a combination of the two but new music is on the way! I just started what i call the “GetDown Key” which is subgenres of my style represented by different shapes on the album art.
-Do you have plans for any big collaborations with other artists? Is there someone that you would like to collaborate with?
I do! I have collaborations with quite a few artists that I really respect. I won’t say too much tho 😉
-It seems that lately most electronic artists are incorporating more of a live approach to their sets. Do you have any desire to add more musicians to your life performance?
At this point im focused on making my solo performances the best they can be. I’m always open to ideas though and have some things in mind for the future.
-What can you tell us about this Cervantes headliner that we may not already know? Any surprise guests, new tracks or new production we should look out for?
Ahhhh!!! It’s going to be so fun! I’ve been looking forward to this show for a long time and we have some really special things planned. I will be playing tons of unreleased music, we will have new merch and of course bangin production 🙂
-Do you have any plans for a bigger multi-state headlining tour after this CO run concludes?
We have tons of stuff in the works right now, and I’m looking forward to getting out into the country more and more as things progress.
