See no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil.
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.

There is only one way to start off the summer outdoor concert series in Colorado and that is with a unbelievable show at Red Rocks Amphitheater.
Last Friday night as the sun began to set, the glow sticks and furry boots and Colorado geared out music fans alike all descended upon Red Rocks for the first big dubstep show of the summer, Global Dub Festival put on by Global Dance, AEG Live, and Sub.Mission. There was a silent vibe among the crowd, a glowing excitement for the amazing artists about to take the stage and for the happiness that comes with this concert experience. Here, dub artists were backstage preparing to play to a sold out crowd of 10,000 people, all ready to dance and jump and scream the night away as the music pulsated through each and every one of them.
First to the stage was the electronic duo Designer Drugs who amped the night up right with their touch on all music from electric to dub to trap to dance. They didn’t just warm the crowd up, they electrified the crowd to be prepared for the rest of the night. Then the four dirty boys of Dirtyphonics took to the stage, flying all the way from France to show Red Rocks some proper bass music love. If you want entertainment, try watching four guys make mixes constantly together, it takes dedication and these four delivered a impressive performance full of all things drum and bass. On their heels was none other than Zomboy who laid some straight mind control over this crowd. His energy carries from his music to every listener in the audience, not stopping for one minute to take a break, Zomboy raised the stakes.
Then the master of all bass took to the stage, triple X-rated himself, Excision. And no, he couldn’t bring his sound system this time because Red Rocks would be no more but don’t worry Rado, he’s coming back this fall with all the bass your ears can handle. Excision destroyed his set, throwing deep bass after deep bass all over the screaming fans that could not get enough of his bass in their faces. Excision never stopped running through all the bass he knew and the crowd kept craving for more after each drop.
The final man to the stage was none other than the blonde boy who blasts the gold dust through any speaker system he’s hooked up to, Flux Pavilion. Flux took the stage and with some insane visual graphics dancing on the screen behind him, he gave the audience all that they could ask for and more. He blew the roof, gave us daydreams, couldn’t stop and finally gold dusted the entire crowd who by this point were all standing, singing, screaming for all things Flux. Before he left the stage, Flux took the microphone and said, “Red Rocks has to be the best venue in the world. The fact that it’s next to Denver is a definite plus”. There you have it ladies and gentlemen, the most amazing venue in the world with some of the biggest names in dubstep music to start off what is sure to be an epic summer at Red Rocks.

Friday night at the Larimer Lounge in Denver, Clockwork’s alter ego RL Grime is coming to move the mountains. This young LA native producer decided to switch things up and took inspiration from nuanced UK bass music to develop a new style of music that goes hand in hand with his new name. Little over a year ago, he released his first EP and the electronic music world has been begging for more ever since. Bringing his High Beams tour to Colorado, we are ecstatic to hear RL’s unique sound and what new music he has up his sleeve. Opening for the night are Vinnie Maniscalco and K-Mac, two Colorado natives who know how to throw down some dirty beats. Excited to hang with this ultra ego.

Zeds Dead recently released their Spring Mix with over 35 heart-pounding songs sure to please any ZD fans. The mix combines fist pumping electronic with down and dirty dubstep mixed in with some fabulous funk and rich vocals. The transitions are quick and clean letting the listeners know it is on to the next awesome jam. Over an hour of some amazing songs by the two ZD mastermind boys themselves, is there any other way to ring in spring? Pull out the bbq and turn this mix up, it’s one for the sunny days and even the still snowy days. Cheers to spring.

When someone says Miami, so many things come to mind right?
The beautiful white beaches, the hot weather, the tanned and good looking ladies and gentlemen and maybe, or you should think, an electric music domain.
An artist who calls Miami home just dropped an unbelievable 3-track EP earlier this week for Mixmash Records called Rock This Dream. His name is fairly unknown but his music is far from that. He literally fell into the laps of electric fans everywhere this year with his undeniable banger “Hit It” and has not slowed down long enough for many people to catch his name. But if you are lucky enough to hear his music then you sure as hell should help spread his name; Henrix. A Brazilian who has called Miami home long enough to be a native, is an electronic artist Miami is proud to call one of their own.
His EP starts off with “Rock This Dream” featuring Roland Clark which is an instant fist pounding, body jumping tune full of high energy electric beats and heart stopping drops. Henrix takes us on an electric music journey with this song, telling us how electric music “feeds us all and sets us free…takes us to a place beyond our imagination.” Truth. He follows up with “Viral”, a beat full of amazing drums that feels like you are in an action/thriller video game. With my gun drawn, I wander through the levels as Henrix brings the beats high and then drops them to a dirty low. Time to save the world. His final song, “Losing My Mind”, with Jakob Liedholm featuring Gieuseppe Viola, is a song with a story of a man who cannot get a woman off his mind, hence he’s losing it as we do in this electric music cloud. This song makes me want to close my eyes because I can feel every beat that was put into this tune. Henrix does an amazing job on this whole EP taking his listeners on a journey along with him, never sounding the same but exposing each ear to a new electric sound and feel in each song.
Remember, Henrix, the proud electric artist from Miami who is about to fall into the laps of the rest of the electric music world. Watch out.

It is always hard to take the sound from an original track and make it into your own but that has never stopped electronic DJ and producer 3LAU from attempting to do so. And it seems every time 3LAU rises to the challenge he exceeds our expectations and leaves us pining for more. Enter a song from his latest EP called “Captivate the Light” which he mixed with Bruneaux. It begins with a eerie melody that slowly turns into Deadmau5’ piano melody from “Raise your Weapons”. 3LAU keeps the song slow and beautiful, the captivating female lyrics string the song along until the very end. This is just one of the songs on 3LAU’s new EP which features mash-ups from Avicii to Zedd all touched with hints of 3LAU. He does an amazing job picking the strong pieces, melodies, lyrics from these already mind blowing songs and just adds enough new beats and drops to take the songs to the next level of electronic bliss. Enjoy 3LAU’s full EP here and be ready for some other new and exciting things to come from this young rising artist.
