The night at Red Rocks was just right, a cool summer evening as fans of the acclaimed electronic master, Bassnectar, gathered for the second night of back-to-back sold out shows. As he took the stage, the longhaired musician gave some love to Colorado and then put it simply, “I know trap music is the music style this year but I’m going to play some good old dub all night.”
Play dub? Not even, he played, threw down, molded, melted dub all over the crowd that night. Bringing along his own sound system did not hurt either, his deep melodies and intense beat sessions could be heard far outside of Red Rocks. Bassnectar, also known as Lorin Ashton, has been at this for a while the whole killing people with his musical talents. He went to his first rave back in 1995 when he was just a young buck and since then, his world and our world has never been the same. Naming himself the famous Bassnectar, he released his first album back in 2001 and I was only too happy to hear him go back to his beginning roots. He played songs that were a decade old that still held the same excitement they did when they were first released, and the crowd loved him for it. All musicians start somewhere and Bassnectar is one of those musicians whose beat naturally flowed out of him from the minute he touched his first electronic music system.
Playing for over two hours straight, Bassnectar showed why he has such a huge fan base and why his music will continue to awe and inspire his adoring supporters.
Keep rocking those long locks Bassnectar and keep capturing the hearts, ears and minds of all who listen to you.
Start with a person. Or, more specific, a musician. Now, add in different types of music. A little dubstep, a little drub & bass, a little electro, some aggressive rock & metal and then to make things really interesting, a dash of orchestral elements. And let’s amp up the musician to take the titles of producer, songwriter, programmer, re-mixer and of course, performer. Combine all the of these elements and who emerges but a highly talented artist who has been changing the face of electronic music for almost a decade now.
Enter Celldweller, our new resident artist for the month of June. To all of his loyal fans, he is known as Klayton, the heart, mind and soul behind the red haired musician Celldweller and the man who constantly is changing the game when it comes to music.
Klayton calls Detroit home, a city with electronic music history flowing through its streets. It was here that Celldweller first released his debut album back in 2003, “Celldweller” which immediately caught the attention of fans and critics who praised Klayton for his unique and undeniably talented sound. From there, Klayton has only grown in his popularity and has taken his own music and his love for the music scene to the next level. Klayton is the proud founder of FiXT, a rapidly growing media company that works as a record label, an online music and merchandise outlet, a publicity wing, and as a film/television/game licensing department. One of the reasons FiXT covers all of these aspects is because Celldweller’s own music has been used numerous time in television shows, movies and especially in video games. Wouldn’t it get you more psyched up to destroy a few aliens with the sounds of Celldweller blasting through your headphones?
Klayton’s sound is distinctive; he brings a lot of his rock and metal passions to the table when making his music. That is something that makes him a truly diverse musician and producer, keeping true to the music of his roots but then throwing in a complete new electronic sound that captivates all of his listeners.
But feel free to play every dirty, nasty, evil electronic/dub beat that you want Protohype.
The young 23-year-old newer artist, whose real name is Max Hype, recently released the second part of his series after “See no Evil” with the highly anticipated “Hear no Evil”. The four tracks EP is composed of all original works and has some very talented vocals lent to some of the tracks.
Protohype starts the series strong with “Fly” featuring the stunning high vocals of Alina Renae. The song is my favorite on the EP; it is full of an unattainable energy that rises from your feet all the way to the top of your head. It tells the simple tale of finally being free from someone and how that has gives people the power to fly and do amazing things. There are intense drum rolls and hypnotic electronic melodies that make this an unforgettable song. “Jelly Roll” and “Bright Side”, which features Ras have a great energy surrounding them. “Jelly Roll” is an instrumental phenomenon that you can’t stop bopping around to. “Bright Side” again takes the powerful lyrics of Ras and combines them with Protohype’s intense musical style. To put the finishing touches on this EP, Protohype finishes with “Shatter” which starts with a mesmerizing violin entrance. The song continues with this beautiful violin throughout the whole song while Protohype loops in his drops and his powerful moments of electronic bliss.
Two parts down, one part to go, we can’t see what speaking no evil will do to our lips.
Shout out to one of our favorite young dubstep artists, PatrickReza, for this insane remix of Destroid’s “Raise Your Fist”. Reza takes this intense song and makes it very much mold into his own sound, with bouncy beats and strong melodies. Reza keeps the intensity of any and all Destroid songs though, with the machine talking throughout the whole piece telling all listeners it is time to raise your fist ::holding mine up in the air::
