Colorado Culture Exclusive Circus Records Interview: Flux Pavilion x Cookie Monsta x Diskord

Colorado Culture Exclusive Circus Records Interview: Flux Pavilion x Cookie Monsta x Diskord

 

With electro-dubstep becoming increasingly popular across the country, it’s no surprise that the best of the best are back in the bass capital and sweeping the nation by a storm with their newest rendition of a Christmas tour. Circus Records, the independent UK music record established in 2009 in by Joshua “Flux Pavilion” Steele, Shaun “Doctor P” Brockhurst, Simon Swan, and Earl Falconer, has been one of the leading dubstep and drum and bass labels in the industry for over five years, and Colorado Culture’s Madison Shea and Elyza Desiree had the privilege to sit down and chat with some of it’s leading artists. With Steele leading the interview, alongside Tony “Cookie Monsta” Cook and DISKORD (a newer addition to Circus Records’ powerhouse focusing on heavy trap and dub) we had the opportunity to discuss the upcoming musical plans and direction for the crew, what their comeback means to them, and more.

Safe In Sound 2016 Review

Safe In Sound 2016 Review

Less than one week after Hallowfreakinween, crowds of teens and twenty-somethings made their way to the First Bank Center to attend Colorado’s 3rd annual Safe In Sound Music Festival. With twenty-five destinations and an assortment of eighteen artists, this year’s Safe In Sound line up was more than grand. Not only did Borgore, Zomboy, LAXX, and Just A Gent make a Coloradical appearance, but Denver’s own Decadon and PAWS made their way to the Broomfield line-up, making this show an event that this bass capital’s residents didn’t want to miss.

Borgore Talks New Song 'Best' & More Upcoming Releases: The Exclusive Colorado Culture Interview

Borgore Talks New Song 'Best' & More Upcoming Releases: The Exclusive Colorado Culture Interview
 “Hey kids it's Borgore, do you know what’s hardcore?”
-Not your latest track, Asaf.

Borgore’s latest song, ‘Best’, may come as a major surprise to hardcore Borgore fans. The new track features an entirely new Borgore sound that is not dubstep, and if this concept isn’t controversial as is the songs' music video depicts a story that only leaves viewers with a multitude of questions. 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. Check out the exclusive Colorado Culture x Borgore interview below!

UK Trio Gentlemen’s Club Returns to Denver for a Smashing Bass-Filled Performance

Rising up from the ashes in a sea full of overplayed monotonous electronic music comes one of the most legendary trios in riddim history: Gentlemen’s Club. Comprised of artists Soloman, Coffi, and 50Carrot, the United Kingdom-based group made their return to Denver this past Halloweekend. Often times we find ourselves clouded in an industry of aspiring emerging artists, but on October 29th, City Hall in Denver opened up to reveal an incredible night full of face-melting bass and riddim.

The Lantern Fest: Denver

The Lantern Fest: Denver

Denver Lanternfest was every bit as magical as it sounds. The gates of the National Speedway in Dacono opened at 3pm, and they couldn’t have picked a better day. Each person received a s’more kit, and of course, their lanterns. We got large white lanterns, but I later noticed some colorful ones and few shaped like hearts. Families, lovers, and friends moved in, to pick their perfect spot among the scattered firepits and tiki torches, armed with blankets and camping chairs. Some brought small coolers to lounge in the sun, watching the various events being held at the stage. Besides the amusing pie eating and Hawaiian Punch drinking contests, and a hula hoop competition, a couple talented local singers performed and covered everybody’s favorite songs from modern pop to nostalgia-inducing songs from decades past.

Rowdytown 5: Big Gigantic and Friends

Rowdytown 5: Big Gigantic and Friends

Rowdytown five was one for the books! I got the grand opportunity of being a Lil’G which is a group of people that work with Big Gigantic on the days of the show to help assure them that their crowd is being taken care of. All night we handed out waters, t-shirts, water bottles, hats, candy, and more to people. The smile’s I got back were priceless.

The much anticipated 2016 edition of the Great American Beer Festival (held over 4 four-hour long sessions last week on the 6th thru the 8th), lived up to expectations.  There were some excellent revelations and discoveries (more on that a bit later), and also the usual puzzling sights.  So, let’s dive into the beer shall we?

Colorado Culture Approved: Snowboard on the Block Festival 10/14-10/15

Colorado Culture Approved: Snowboard on the Block Festival 10/14-10/15

Fall is officially here.  At the time of this writing, the temperature outside sits at a balmy 38 degrees fahrenheit, leaving no doubt about the change of seasons being official.  And in Colorado, the onset of fall means a few different things - in terms of sports or otherwise.  For pro sports, it means that baseball season is over (the Rockies are not in the playoffs, as is tradition), and that Broncos season is in full swing.  But in terms of other non-team sports, it also means that the time to trek to the mountains and ride on snow is drawing nigh, and for many Colorado residents, that represents the best portion of the calendar year.

Downtown Aquarium, Denver: Otter Weekend 10/8/2016-10/9/2016

Downtown Aquarium, Denver: Otter Weekend 10/8/2016-10/9/2016

Here at Colorado Culture we like to embrace as much of the state as we possibly can. The famed Ocean Journey turned Denver Aquarium has been on our bucket list for a long time now and it seemed like there’s no better time to get in there than the annual Otter Weekend that took place here this past weekend. At first glance, it somewhat resembles an ordinary building in the heart of downtown Denver. If you pass it from the highway, it shares a view with the Six Flags theme park, Sports Authority Field, and the massive CU Denver/Metro/CCD campus, and perhaps you can’t quite see from afar that inside is a whole different world.

Event Review: Bear Grillz at the Fox Theatre

Event Review: Bear Grillz at the Fox Theatre
Is there anything out there more satisfying than listening to beautiful music? Depends, but maybe having the person who’s creating that music show how passionate they are about their tracks is a close tie. With so many people out there right now trying to make it in the music industry to get rich quick it's gratifying to see artists who are genuinely performing for their love of music and their fans. Despite the midweek Wednesday show, whoever was fortunate enough to attend Bear Grillz at the Fox last week got just that. He brought that signature dirty dubstep, collabs, and mixes littered with huge bass drops and upbeat vibes.
