Are You SoDown to Get Funky This Weekend?

Are You SoDown to Get Funky This Weekend?

The good homie SoDown has made some serious strides since we started following him.  Not only has this bass-loving funkaholic sold out his first local headline earlier this year, and has been spreading his brand of bass all across the country this summer.  We caught up with him before another co-headline show with Muzzy Bear at City Hall this Saturday.  We've got some new music for you as well!

Cloak & Dagger: Milky.WAV

Cloak & Dagger: Milky.WAV

As part of our ongoing lead-up to October's Cloak & Dagger music festival, we bring you another talented homegrown artist who will be providing some flavor for your ears: Milky.WAV.  He grew up in the music scene here, and is currently doing his part to help preserve it's history, as well as pave the way for it's future.  Previously producing hip hop under the moniker Black Jordan (until he joined the crew over at Souls in Action), he now prefers to meld some other elements into his mix along with the hip hop.  But we'll let him tell you that.

Vertex Festival 2016: Big Wild

Vertex Festival 2016: Big Wild

This past weekend I had the opportunity to check out the very first Vertex Music Festival in Buena Vista, Colorado.  Overall, it was a relaxing weekend filled with music, friends, and the beautiful outdoors Colorado is widely known for. While I was there I took some time to sit down with a few different artists to chat about the music, Colorado, and the culture that encompasses their lives. The first artist I spoke with is one of my current favorites and I was really looking forward to it as I’ve been fortunate enough to see him a couple other times this year. Jackson, or better known as his stage name, Big Wild, hails from California, but loves playing music in CO. Here’s what he had to say to us before his set at Vertex.

Cloak & Dagger: Collin McKenna

Cloak & Dagger: Collin McKenna

Cloak & Dagger music festival is self-described as a “small music festival focusing on music, and music alone.”  While it is still relatively young, we’d argue that the festival itself is anything but small.  This year marks only the third incarnation of the festival here in Denver (they had an event in Albuquerque earlier this year), but when past lineups include such dance music heavy hitters as Four Tet, the Gaslamp Killer, Thomas Jack, Justin Martin, and Cashmere Cat….well you get the point.  Calling it small is just an exercise in modesty.

Vans Warped Tour 2016: Denver

Vans Warped Tour 2016: Denver

Vans Warped Tour made its stop in Denver last Sunday on the Pepsi Center Grounds. The longest running traveling tour in the nation has seen the rise of punk and alternative music’s greats and continues to be one of every band’s dream gigs. In the past I remember it being very different; lineups used to be a bunch of seemingly nobodies and then mega-headliner acts to close the night. Fond memories of Warped Tour 2009 (the last time I went) spring to mind when Underoath massacred the stage after endless mini circle pits and bands I didn’t know.

Atreyu - Warped Tour Denver Edition

I’ve heard too many people say the music they listened to in high school is dead. They say that the alternative, punk, and hardcore genres have been played out and all the bands they used to love are history. They’re also wrong.

Autoerotique

Autoerotique
Toronto based duo Autoerotique have made quite a mark for themselves since their initial signing with Dim Mak records in 2009.  Including styles such as techno, house, rave, and even indie rock into their repertoire, they’ve racked up an impressive resume of supporters from the likes of Calvin Harris, Skrillex, Diplo, The Chainsmokers, Kaskade, Martin Garrix, and much more. We had a chance to sit down with Keith Robertson and find out what he’s got in store for the future.
