Full of cultural articles, ideas, and events that are easily accessible and informative, it appeals to culture enthusiasts of all ages and types with a goal to serve Colorado and the people who visit with a fresh look on the vast culture that thrives here.

What’s up Cultureheads! I'm Elyza, Media Manager for Colorado Culture. If you know me you know that my life ‘motto’ is a simple one-- LIVE! We’re not born to just pay bills and then die: we are meant to explore, travel, and be free! I’m pretty sure that we only live life once, so while I’m here I definitely try to live life to the fullest. When I’m not in class (shout out to Metro State) you can find me exploring anything and everything that this beautiful state has to offer. Whether that's hitting the slopes, eating out at local restaurants, or enjoying our fantastic music scene, I’m always out and about trying new things. From Boulder to Denver and cities inbetween, I'm completely in love with everything that Colorado has to offer!

-Not your latest track, Asaf.

Borgore’s latest song, ‘Best’, may come as a major surprise to hardcore Borgore fans.

We fortunately had the opportunity to interview Borgore just hours after the release and ask him the questions that you've been dying to know.

Eat, Sleep, Breathe Dubstep: The Exclusive Spag Heddy x Colorado Culture Interview

Nearing the end of his U.S. Summer Tour, dubstep producer SPAG HEDDY offered up some hefty portions of filthy, wonky, juicy-tomato bass at Beta Nightclub this last Friday night.

After experiencing his set first hand, it’s quite obvious that this Mischa Reining born producer has spent quality time cooking away in the kitchen. Offering neck-breaking anthems all throughout his set, the dubstep juggernaut definitely dished up the recommended daily serving of bass. I had the opportunity to sit down with the well-known producer and ask a few of the questions that you’ve been anxious to know.

Touring must present some unique challenges to you as a parent. How do you manage that?

It was definitely hard juggling both at the beginning, but over time its gotten better. The kids are older now so they are busy at school and it keeps their minds (and time) busy while I’m gone. They hardly notice me now lol.

Snails: The Ogden Theater 1/16/16

 

The big date was January 16th, a date many had obviously cleared their schedules for and for good reason. With 1,600 tickets pre-sold and several hopefuls taking on the chilled weather seeking impossible last minute tickets sales outside of Ogden, the SNAILS sold out show was seemingly one of the most anticipated shows in Denver to date. Just before the front doors finally opened for entrance, bassheads were lined up around the block as the DJ’s inside were preparing for every trap savants dream.

Analog Son: Fox Theater 2/26/16

Analog Son: Fox Theater 2/26/16

Elevated energy, extreme talent, and the gift of FUNK is something Analog Son has been effectively crafting for almost three years now, come fall. This past weekend, Analog Son, featuring the magical congas by Jason Hann of The String Cheese Incident, had hips shaking from Boulder to Denver as they made their way to the Burton US Open in Vail this week. With leading musicians Jordan Linit - guitar and Josh Fairman - bass, the minds behind the original design of this ever evolving funky collaboration, they’ve successfully experimented with members of Lettuce, Soulive, The New Mastersounds, Dumpstaphunk, The String Cheese Incident, The Motet and Juno What?! - to name a FEW. Their flaming hot fusion is electric on its own, as they combine the ranging technologies of music production from the very beginning of funk music, and bringing that well-rounded elaboration to the stage. Their mission is Funk, and their artillery of musical genius is impossible to deny.

Kaminanda & What He's Fond Of: Kaminanda Interview

Kaminanda & What He's Fond Of: Kaminanda Interview

Kaminanda is not necessarily a household name in music, even at the underground EDM level.

However when he finally does roll into town for his headliner set, he leaves audience in utter awe. His psy-dub style of electronica coupled with tasty guitar licks is a blend of so many genres that can be traced from funk to classic rock of yesteryear. Before his May 28th headliner set at Cervantes' Masterpiece Ballroom, we got a chance to sit down and discuss what exactly makes the man behind the psy-dub tick.


Most of your tracks are very multidimensional. What inspires this?  

The desire to time travel and explore unlimited streams of consciousness.

You just recently started posting a “song of the day” on your Facebook page, which of the songs posted thus far has influenced you the most? What way did this song influence you?  

Maybe Pink Floyd’s “Echoes”. It’s just a masterpiece. The song structure, the groove in the middle jam, the psychedelic textures and the re-entry back into the song part. It’s just amazing. 22 minutes as well!

If you could live in any era what would it be and why?

1960’s. For obvious reasons...

What does a perfect day look like to you?

Playing multiple sets at a festival and getting to play with a band.. Maybe ending the day in a cuddle puddle.

What projects are you currently working on?

An uptempo tribal techno project. Planning stages of the Kaminanda live band.

If you could collaborate with anyone dead or alive who would it be and why?

Cat Stevens or Bobby McFerrin. It would be an honor to hear their vocals on a track.

What does Colorado culture mean to you?

Music, smiles, cannabis, mountains and Red Rocks.
