If you’ve never heard of Canadian Vomitstep producer SNAILS you sure have now. This Sluggtopia king completely (s)nailed his audience with his filthy, froggy, wompy bass lines on Friday night while debuting his brand new album and stage production ‘The Shell’. With support from NGHTMRE, Joyryde, SQUNTO, Boogie T, Must Die!, and LAXX, this was definitely an event that nobody wanted to miss. We had the opportunity to catch up with Snails before his sold out Red Rocks show, check out the Colorado Culture interview here:
We consider ourselves very fortunate to have the kind of access to creative and influential people, because it allows us the opportunity to pick their brains a bit. Here is where we showcase those interactions, whether it be an artist review, an album review, or a recap of a particularly invigorating experience....this is the documentation of that genuine inspiration.
The crew at Colorado Culture had the opportunity to chat with Johnny, Taylor, and Justin of Eminence Ensemble before the crew took off on their last leg of tour. Check out the exclusive interview here!
April 20th is an enormously celebrated holiday for the Mile High City as the bustling spring weekend fills Denver with block parties, drink and food specials at restaurants all across town, and of course, awesome music for the bass capital. That being said, if the annual HDYFEST trap music party at Red Rocks with Flosstradamus and What So Not doesn’t suit your fancy there are always more options for those who still crave their dance music fix.
Kicking the 2017 year off strong, we start our festival journey in the Southwest region of the country with Gem and Jam Music Festival. The eleventh annual festival located in the heart of Tucson, AZ takes place February 2nd-5th, and this year things are heating up more than ever. With masters of hip-hop-funk Gramatik, The Floozies, and Lotus headlining the festival, Arizona will host one of the most notoriously funk-worthy festivals of the year--and that’s not all that's in store for funk-lovers alike. Phish bassist Mike Gordon, several members of the String Cheese Incident, G-Jones, OPIUO, The Russ Liquid Test, and more fill out the lineup making the 2017 Gem and Jam fest one of the best they've ever had. The festival also includes both on and off-site camping each night, and for all of us Coloradans getting buried under snow, Gem and Jam sounds like the perfect place to trade up the bitter cold for the warmth, light, and music for a few days.
