Interview: Get To Know Jvckpot And His New EP ” Blowin’ Smoke ”

Denver grown bass house producer Jvckpot just dropped a new EP, Blowin’ Smoke, and we had the opportunity to ask him some questions about the project and check out the EP. It’s clear these two tracks might add the perfect touch to your summer playlist. The title track kicks off with a hard-hitting party vibe right from the start and bounces an addictive, clean drumbeat off bodacious bass lines dripping in attitude. The other track, Ripped Off, is equally as energized but has a darker vibe, with a dance-y grimy bassline through the whole track. Blowin’ Smoke is a summertime banger to add to your party playlist- find him on Beatport, Spotify, or Soundcloud. Check out the interview Party Guru Press did with him to learn about his background and the new release!

Drawing inspiration from his roots of fidget house in 2008 combined with intricately interwoven drum styles of trap and breaks of the next decade, Jvckpot has his mind set on retaking his hometown of Denver, Colorado. Originally a founding member of the Denver based production collective Got Bass Music, Jvckpot has returned with a new alias garnering support along the way from friends and local favorites. This veteran house connoisseur will have the dance floor bouncing no matter the occasion. Combining elements of house, breaks, dubstep and trap, he maintains an immersive and eloquent mix across the board.

Party Guru Press: How long have you been working on this EP?

JVCKPOT: In total, about 3 months. I started the idea for “ Blowin’ Smoke” way back in November of last year but I hadn’t started shopping it out until I had some more tracks on the back line. “Ripped Off” came together much quicker and was motivated following the Night Bass Anniversary live stream on Twitch back in February. I’d say it probably took me a week to bang out the second track.

Party Guru Press: Did you run into any challenges when working on this project?

JVCKPOT: Blowin’ Smoke being an earlier track I certainly had my issues figuring out the progression and direction of the track. For a while I was trying to fit that deep and low house vibe but growing up on Electro and Fidget I always tend to add in more energetic bass sounds. Early in my production career though it can be tough getting so many aggressive sounds to fit well together without overwhelming the listener. Ripped Off is a bit more straight forward with it’s leads and I already had a vibe I was going for though admittedly the second drops ends up going pretty hard as well haha.

Party Guru Press: How does it feel to be on the Beatport top releases?

JVCKPOT: I still don’t quite believe it to be honest. I never thought I’d be charting this early on, let alone Top 5 releases. Have to give massive props to the exposure that Incursion Recordings already has and the amount they worked with me on promoting the release. To have this validation early on in the project feels really amazing and further motivates me to grow. I’ve set the bar for myself so it’s something to continue working to improve. I think it would be nutty to be on the overall top 100.

Party Guru Press: Other than bass house, do you feel any other edm genres in these tracks?

JVCKPOT: There is a lot of fidget house influence in my tracks. I’m a gigantic Crookers fan and I think my productions reflect that. I’m pretty proud of one of the wonky bass sounds in Ripped Off near the end of the drop. There’s definitely a hint of complextro influence in there as well. 

Party Guru Press: How was the stream with Bassbloc?

JVCKPOT: The Bass Bloc stream is always a great time. I’ve gone back with those guys over 10 years so getting to go back and DJ for them is like riding a bike. We pick right back up where we left off. Last stream I got to tag team with Matty Ghost who is an absolute riot of a person, haha. We had a great time and cruised back to his studio space to shoot the shit afterwards. I’m looking forward to some sessions with that dude soon!

Party Guru Press: What drove you to choose the samples you did for these tracks?

JVCKPOT: I wish it was more thought out, but in reality they just kinda felt right for the tracks after trying a bunch of splice samples. Just trying to be as smug and obnoxious as I maybe was feeling myself at the tail end of the lockdown. Feelings of being rinsed and ripped off perhaps? Blowin’ Smoke is a bit more straightforward of a decision; it’s what the “pot” in Jvckpot stands for after all.

Party Guru Press: Where did you record these tracks?

JVCKPOT: These tracks are home studio creations! For the techies I’m running an i5-10400 with Ableton, Rokit 5s and a T10S sub. I was actually staying with my mom at the time I made them so kudos to her for dealing with the noise for those months. Mastering was done in house by Incursion, shout out to Ryan Gallus!

Party Guru Press: How has the reception been from your fans since this dropped?

JVCKPOT: It’s been pretty insane! The past 3 days it’s been climbing the Beatport release charts so clearly someone is enjoying it. It’s still kinda hard for me to grasp to be honest. As in any sort of art field, I don’t quite feel all that worthy yet so I appreciate all of the amazing feedback and support I’ve gotten from the community.

Party Guru Press: Who did the graphic design for the cover art for this?

JVCKPOT: Graphics were all provided by the great team at Incursion Recordings. Those folks hustle so hard to deliver some top notch bangers every week. 

Party Guru Press: In your own words, what vibe does Ripped Off throw down?

JVCKPOT: Ripped Off is best listened to with a broken cig hanging out of your mouth, preferably wearing a matching Adidas tracksuit. Throw on a smug look and fist pump your problems away. 

Party Guru Press: What about Blowin’ Smoke?

JVCKPOT: I’d describe Blowin Smoke as pure bass aggression. Thick FM wobs followed by squelchy wurps accompanied by that jackin’ bass house drum line. It’s got a gun cock sample too so you know it’s edgy. 

Party Guru Press: What’s next for you after this EP?

JVCKPOT: Most recently, I’ve really been focusing on collaborative work. I feel like I’ve proven that I can create some pretty awesome stuff and I’m looking forward to bringing my own flavor to the table. I’ve got a pretty beefy remix awaiting label approval which would be a massive accomplishment as well. Heading into the tail end of summer, I’m sure I’ll start up a couple originals also!

Party Guru Press: Would you consider yourself a party guru? 

JVCKPOT: Being a product of the Denver bass scene I can confidently say that I am able to impart my decade of party knowledge onto the next generation of aspiring bass heads. Pleasure to be here representing the Denver Bass House community!

DJ Snake Brings The House Down At Mission Ballroom

With a looming threat of the pandemic, anybody can have their plans cancelled in just a moment’s notice. In the afternoon before the show, Malaa shared a tweet explaining that he was unable to make it into the country due to certain restrictions that were out of his control. Although concert goers were told at the door that Malaa would not be able to appear for a back to back set with DJ Snake as planned, that didn’t stop the venue from filling up with thousands of people who were starving for house music. A hunger that would soon be satiated over the next four and a half hours.

Entering Sky World: STS9 Red Rocks Tour Kick-Off

Live music is back and a three-night run in Colorado is an outstanding start for five-piece livetronica band Sound Tribe Sector 9’s return to live performance. The Sky World tour – rescheduled from last year – is the second part of their 2019 Push The Sky tour. Traditionally, STS9 plays a multi-night run at Red Rocks Amphitheater over Labor Day weekend. However due to the pandemic, the band had not played for well over a year until now. Having the opportunity to witness Tribe kick off this special tour at one of the best venues in the world and a place I call home was an outstanding live music experience. Tribe delivered a true night to remember.

Red Rocks is operating at full capacity again. So, it wasn’t long before both Friday and Saturday’s STS9 shows were sold out. I attended the first night this past Friday, July 23rd. The show consisted of three sets. One of the three sets was Classic Tribe hits, that included some lesser-known songs, and new content alike intertwined in a magical, funky, and at times a spooky musical journey. Exemplifying the true jamtronica sound, STS9 carried songs into the next, seamlessly blending sound.

Starting The Night Off

The show kicked off with a smoky horizon and a low-hanging early evening sun. A melodic voice rang out. The song “Sky World” by Theresa Bear Fox of the Akwesasne Mohawk Nation played, a song of remembrance for those who have passed on. Screams of excitement emerge in a wave from the crowd of nine thousand and some attendees. The illustrious Red Rocks stage was graced with keyboardist and synth master David Phipps, percussionists Jeffree Lerner and Zach Velmer, guitarist Hunter Brown, and badass bass playin’ babe Alana Rocklin.

Tribe played some of their best bangers in the first set, including “Better Day”, “Breathe In”, “Poseidon”, and “Ramone & Eglio”. Also Tribe played “When the Dust Settles”, which transformed into their rendition of Sly and the Family Stone’s “Family Affair”. The second set included “Out of this World”, “Strange Games”, and “Lift You Up”. A blanket of light on the rocks from Friday’s full moon blended with the ambient colorful beams of STS9’s top-notch lighting production. Which painted a perfect backdrop for the final set – my personal favorite of the night. “World Go Round” metamorphosed into “Dusk”, “Monkey Music” into the soul-churning “Golden Gate”, and “Arigato” mutated into “Orbital”.

One of the most notable experiences of seeing an STS9 performance is witnessing the raw love and passion these musicians have for their art. An undeniable look of pure hypnotic bliss possesses Rocklin’s face as she crafts the basslines. David Phipp’s serene expression as his fingers effortlessly glide across the keyboard. The sweaty, beaming focus on Jeffree and Zach’s faces as they hammer and thump the drums. Hunter biting his lip, somehow grimacing and smiling at the same time, when he masterfully takes over the song for a moment with his guitar. And the crowd – the fan base of Tribe – is so special in itself. “This is my 150th tribe show”, said one of the guys standing next to me. His eyes tear up a bit as the song Golden Gate creeps into fruition. 

Tribe encored Friday with the song “We’ll Meet In Our Dreams”. A final pulse of energy exploded from the stage in the ending drum solo. Then came the typical moments of a Red Rocks show after the encore is over – “back to life, back to reality”, we heard. A bittersweet sadness ascended on the crowd as the realization set in that the show was really over for the night. Although, it only felt as though so little time had passed since the journey began. I reluctantly pulled myself off the side planter box, following the herd down the stairs in a pure joyous haze.

Conclusion

Overall, I highly recommend experiencing an STS9 performance at least once to those who haven’t yet. After more than two decades of making music, Tribe is an expert at producing a truly original sound and presenting live music in a way that offers so much substance to fans of electronica and rock music alike. Upcoming performances for STS9 include Summer Camp Music Festival in Chillicothe, Illinois August 20th – August 2021, and three additional October shows in Lake Perris and Napa, California.

New EP from Mize Captivates the Music Scene

Mize is an emerging experimental bass producer from Alabama. During the past few years, he has won over the electronic music community with a magnetic appeal that comes through in his innovative style of music production. 

This week, Mize returns to the music scene with a highly anticipated EP, Balancing Act. His innovation and talent are obvious throughout this EP as Mize demonstrates his unwavering ability to create music of exceptional quality. This EP takes listeners on a journey filled with peaceful atmospheres and whimsical melodies, complete with exciting and energetic drops. Balancing Act is now available to listen to on all streaming services.

Mize’s Creative Journey

Ian Evans started producing music in 2012. For the first several years into his project, he went by the alias ‘ianqt.’ Eventually, he changed his name to Mize to memorialize his grandmother’s last name. 

Mize discovered his signature style by pushing the boundaries of electronic music and experimenting with sound designs. He was inspired by genre-defying artists such as Tipper and Netsky. Mize spent years mastering his craft, developing a sound that combines psychedelic downtempo and melodic dubstep with hip-hop influences.

In 2020, Mize debuted with WAKAAN when he released his single and follow-up EP titled ‘Thought Process.’ In February 2021, he released ‘Satori,’ a collaborative single with Super Future. This was the first single released on Liquid Stranger’s new downtempo label, SSKWAN. Now, Mize is returning to SSKWAN with his EP, Balancing Act. A testament to Mize’s ever-growing talent, this EP demonstrates his potential to become a top artist in electronic music.

“Balancing Act is both a call back to some of the sounds and places that made this project come together in the beginning as well as a foreshadow of the new ideas, techniques, and themes I’ve been diving into as of late. Constantly as I grow older I notice that many aspects of my life are endless periods of balancing many things whether they be relationships, work, leisure, time, and even things as simple as taking care of your own body. I find that sometimes being an artist can be a Balancing Act of adopting new ideas while also attempting to keep the essence of what brought me here alive.” —MIZE

Conclusion

The incredible talent of Mize is undeniably inspiring a new generation of music producers. We are so excited to see what he does next. Click here to listen to Balancing Act, now out on all streaming services!

DeadBeats 4th of July Backyard Jamboree; Proof That Nature is Healing

This 4th of July weekend was an absolute blessing for Zeds Dead fans. With 4 shows packed into just 3 days, concert goers would be forgiven for feeling like they just left a massive weekend festival. During the 4th of July Jamboree however, the energy levels were soaring as high as the human figures at Sculpture Park. For the first time that weekend, die hard fans finally had the chance to be in a more intimate setting with the Deadbeats crew and you could clearly see that appreciation from the crowd translated, as they flocked to the stage and danced the blistering sunlight away.

Who is HEYZ?

First up on the decks was HEYZ, a fairly new member to the Deadbeats family. Recently, HEYZ found himself garnering a lot of attention from the popular social media platform, TikTok, using eccentric characters with hilarious voices for each one. While he has enjoyed the fame from TikTok, his true passion is music, and it really shows in his debut EP, Who Is HEYZ? Party Guru was given the chance to sit with the hilarious personality to find out.

PARTY GURU: “Wonderful to meet you today. First off, your TikToks are hilarious.”

HEYZ: “Thank you. It’s (Heyz’s TikTok) almost broken up marriages I think. People tell me ‘My wife or husband can’t stand you’ and then they torture each other with my stuff.”

PG: “Congratulations on your new EP, Who is HEYZ. Fans especially like the final track “Just Friends” with vocals from Taylor Ravenna. What was it like working together with Taylor as a vocalist on your track?”

HEYZ: “It was really quick and easy, which is rare. I’m one of those people who likes to just get started and get going on a project, so, I emailed her and she said ‘Give me a couple of days’. She came up with something we kinda liked, so we tweaked it a little and then she just nailed it. She also had a buddy that she’s done work with in the past do some mixing on her vocals and that just sort of made it all come together. That’s the best when that happens.”

PG: “Who’s next for you as far as collaboration projects go?”

HEYZ: “Jauz did a remix for me that’s coming out on the 22nd (of July). This is the first single from Bite This, his 100 release compilation. I also did a remix of “Super Hott” for him and Dubloadz. Then AFK did a remix of my song “Castaway King.” It’s crazy too how the Jauz remix happened because he asked me for the stems, didn’t say why or what he was gonna do with it and then I just saw a video from his sold out show in LA and he’s playing the remix of my song that he finished.”

PG: “Who is your dream collaboration with?”

HEYZ: “Oh, Zeds Dead, for sure. I hope it’s coming, but it’s like, When do I shoot my shot, you know? I’ll maybe wait until they come to me. They’re my hero’s, man. These red rocks shows have brought back so many memories that I forgot I had.”

PG: “You did a few songs with Mau5trap in the past. Now that you are with Deadbeats, does it feel more like home to you?”

HEYZ: “Oh, Absolutely. When I was with Mou5trap, I was brand new. I started making music 3 months before I got signed on with them. The reason I made techno, No shade to techno producers, was because I thought it would be easier and just more straightforward. DeadMou5 was one of my favorite artists ever so I was like, ‘let me try to make something in this lane.’ But then I started playing shows and my energy doesn’t match with techno shows. Like, I’d go play local shows and just rinse bass music and I had way more fun doing that so I decided, ‘Okay, I need to make a switch.'”

PG: “How has the TikTok fame impacted your music career? Is it hurting or helping?”

HEYZ: “Well, for me, it was EDM first. Then, I got popular with TikTok and now it’s going back into EDM. So, I blew up on TikTok, but everybody over there knows me by my comedy. I don’t want it to be a distraction, I want it to be an aid. So now, I’m sort of trying to teach people what I actually do. I didn’t mean to blow up on TikTok, it just happened. I think it’s all aiding me though. People know my personality, they know my sets are gonna be funny and loose, so they want to see it.”

PG: “Is comedy going to be something you incorporate more into your music or live performances?”

HEYZ: “Not intentionally. That’s just who I am. I love pointing out people in the crowd and just saying something funny. I like to break down the barrier between the performer and the people watching and I like to be relatable. Maybe people are like ‘Man this guy needs to shut up on the mic.’ but to me it’s like, why not?”

PG: “What’s next for HEYZ?”

HEYZ: “I’m doing some collabs, a bunch of remixes. I’m working on some insane records. I’ll be releasing at least one more song with Deadbeats by the end of the year. My next show is in Charlotte, North Carolina, with Wreckno and Buku. That’s a cast of characters right there. That green room is gonna be a mess.”

The line Up

Jessica Audiffred @ Deadbeats 4th of July Backyard Jamboree

HEYZ and the sun weren’t the only ones bringing some heat to the jamboree. Musical artist A Hundred Drums had the crowd moving to sounds from her new EP, titled Enough is Enough. An album she says is about life experience and being a black woman in America.

Don’t sleep on Jessica Audiffred. Her newest tracks are making waves in the EDM scene. Her song “Trippin” is a fun ride with astonishing vocals from ATRIX!.

DREZO @ Deadbeats 4th of July Backyard Jamboree

DREZO @ Deadbeats 4th of July BackYard Jamboree

DNMO stepped up and took the party for a ride. Back in 2019 he was catapulted into the limelight with the release of his 4 track EP, titled Definition Forbidden. His newest track, “Without You Near”, is a sample of what’s to come for the growing artist.

Drezo hit the stage and the mood shifted quickly. The crowd is suddenly entranced with deep house sounds, thumping like the speakers had a heart beat. Drezo released “Afterlife” back in 2019 and more recently “Sinister” which is a great follow up. The two tracks work well together setting a deep, electric tone over the crowd. The crowd seemed to be basking in the glory of it. 

Habstrakt @ Deadbeats 4th of July Backyard Jamboree

Habstrakt was next on the docket. He made sure to play his debut Deadbeats release “The Sound”. When the crowed finally heard it live on those immaculate stage speakers they couldn’t help but dance the entire track out, smiles all around.

Zeds Dead @ Deadbeats 4th of July Backyard Jamboree

Finally, the boys themselves, Zeds Dead, prepare to take center stage. The excitement in the crowd is palpable as they wait anxiously for the music to begin. “Alive”, Zeds Dead’s new song with MKLA, begins to play and the crowd presses forward towards the rail as the stage lights up and the show begins.

Zeds Dead played, for the third time that weekend mind you, another unique and unforgettable set. The crowed really reacted hearing nostalgic tracks flipped by the duo. Everything from “Killing In The Name Of” by Rage Against The Machine to “In The Air” by Phil Collins. So far, the Jamboree was looking like the best way for die hard fans to celebrate this 4th of July weekend.

WE BACK

This weekend was the biggest musical event since the pandemic regulations have been more lenient. It’s almost strange, but for the first time in a long time, things finally seem to be going back to normal. Some concert goers were nice enough to give Party Guru their input. 

Long time raver, Deanna Carter, said, “There was a hilarious hot dog eating contest earlier. What a perfect way to celebrate America’s birthday.”

Lovebirds, Delaney Flynn and Derek Hall who said, respectively, “I loved how casual and open the venue was. It’s (Sculpture park) a good spot.” and “This is exactly what I hoped it would be. I loved every second of it! Also, Zed’s Dead dropping old school Skrilly (Skrillex, “RuffNeck”) was sick!

Another gentleman simply shouted, “I LOVE THIS!” but failed to give his name as he rushed into the crowd wearing light up LED gloves during the middle of the day.

It would seem that it’s safe to say, nature is healing. Rave culture is coming back fast and this weekend, (Dead Rocks night 1 & 2, Deadbeats 4th of July Backyard Jamboree and the Mission Ballroom after party) is solid proof of that. Don’t just take our word for it, ask the Deadbeats.

Scotty Boy Brings the Sounds of Deep House Brunch back to LA

The long-awaited return to live events in LA are over. LA County lifted restrictions to the lowest yellow tier in May allowing for dance floors to return with larger capacity limits and indoor establishments able to reopen. Memorial Weekend delivered plenty of options for music lovers but nothing else screams a summer kick-off more than a pool party or boat party; which, Deep HouseBrunch(DHB) did both.

Deep House Brunch is a long-running house music event that combines the soulful mix of live sax, guitar, and drums(or even bongos featured this weekend) with the latest house music favorites mixed by Scotty Boy himself along with other special guests. Long before COVID-19 rocked all music events to a halt, Deep House Brunch was a staple event every month at Elevate Lounge DTLA. It all started when DJ Scotty Boy moved from Vegas to LA and had trouble finding a venue that wanted a house or deep house music, so he created one himself. Fast forward to today, Deep House Brunch became a nationwide sensation with the help of a residency on the cruise ship music festival, Groove Cruise. As of 2020, you can now find DHB in GCFAM hotspots such as Houston, Miami, Vegas, and Scottsdale.


On Saturday, promoter Orlove Entertainment kicked the weekend off with a sunset cruise in Long Beach. Their lineup included Christian Bradford, Lavelle Dupree, Freshcobar, Eva Kane, and the DHB founder, Scotty Boy. Tickets went fast and sold out quickly with the boat operating at 50% capacity so it only felt right to bring in another event, cue in the Sunday Funday with Deep House Brunch Pool Party.

The Mondrian Hotel pool was filled with beautiful people in their newest swimwear, lots of smiles, and plenty of champagne bottle service. It was another sold-out event that left even ticket holders without entry due to strict capacity rules to adhere to the city’s effort to return to business safely. For those lucky enough to come early, the energy from the electric guitar riffs to bongos banging, you couldn’t help but shake your booty. All the new house bangers from Defected Records were loudly represented in the scenic overlook of the Hollywood hills. With a similar lineup as the boat party the day before, each DJ had a way to carry the crowd with their latest
house tracks.

It was clear this was the place to be on a Sunday afternoon with the capacity at its limit for the entirety of the 6-hour event. The crowd had a good mix of DHB die-hards, to first-timers from bachelorette parties or birthday celebrations. Regardless of what brought people in, the vibe was the same. Overall, it was an unforgettable night and a time to be happy dancing in the sun with others.

Redrum Enchants Listeners with New Single, “Floating”

Redrum is a rising bass music producer from Portland. Back in May, she made her explosive debut when she released her single, “Phases,” a charming bass spell that captivated the dance music community. Redrum bewitches her listeners leading up to the release of her full Pisces Moon EP later this summer. Earlier this week, Redrum returned to Liquid Stranger’s SSKWAN label with her new single, ‘Floating.‘ This ethereal song features dreamy vocals and lush soundscapes that will take your mind on a journey through an otherworldly paradise. Listening to ‘Floating’ will transport you to a state of total euphoria as you feel like you are drifting through the clouds and into the stars.

Redrum’s Early Life

Before she became known as Redrum, Tatiana Tindell was drawn to music from a young age. Her father was a composer, musician, and DJ. Growing up, Tatiana discovered her passion for dance. Unfortunately, she was diagnosed with Hodgkins’ Lymphoma when she was 17. Chemotherapy treatments caused extreme bone and muscle weakness, which forced her to part ways with dancing and sent her into a battle with depression. Eventually, Tatiana found relief through a new creative outlet: Producing. Over time, Tatiana’s musical abilities helped her develop a connection to her witchy side and express herself. Inspired by Stephen King’s The Shining, Tatiana created Redrum. Through her hypnotic music, Redrum enchants her listeners and guides them to connect to their inner magic.  

Redrum’s Career

Redrum is quickly gaining notoriety in the bass music community. Before debuting as a solo artist, she featured on Subsidia’s Dawn: Vol. 2 and Electric Hawk’s In Unity compilation albums with her signature ethereal sounds. 

During the COVID-19 shutdowns, she captured the attention of virtual crowds on lineups including Electric Hawk’s Harmony Virtual Music Festival and In Unity Livestream, Wormhole Entertainment’s weekly Wormhole Wednesday, and Nova Lotus Music’s Nova Vita live stream. 

The Supreme Witch also delivered an enchanting performance at Forbidden Kingdom Music Festival in Orlando last month. With another performance coming up in August at Kosmic Kingdom Music Festival, Redrum proves that she is a force to reckoned with as she enchants the masses.

During her short time in the electronic music industry, Redrum has developed a solid reputation. The Bass music community has quickly embraced Redrum and we are excited to see what she will create next. With an upcoming four-track EP, Redrum is set to captivate the masses with dreamy sounds and obvious talent.

Sully Ignites the Party with a New Single: ‘Right About Now’

Sully is a bass music producer from Los Angeles who is making big waves in the music industry. He is known for his innovative sounds, which combine melodic dubstep with heavy bass wobbles and eerie atmospheres. His unique style of bass music has been groundbreaking within the electronic music scene. Now, he is back again with a hot new single, ‘Right About Now,’ available on all streaming services.

Sully started learning how to produce throughout high school. In college, he earned his audio engineering degree from the University of Michigan. Later, Sully Graduated from the Icon Collective, a Los Angeles-based music college, where he maximized his production skills and creative process. After spending years mastering his craft, Sully has quickly built an impressive reputation in the bass music scene. In 2019, Sully released his debut single, ‘Frequency Shift.’ His music was quickly noticed by WAKAAN’s one-and-only Liquid Stranger, who took him under his wing and brought him onto the Ascension tour. Since then, Sully has steadily released music with the WAKAAN Music Label and has quickly made a name for himself in the electronic music space. 

Sully Returns to WAKAAN

In his highly anticipated return to WAKAAN, Sully recruits Isaac Castor as his emcee. ‘Right About Now’ is a bass party anthem that will keep the energy going and the vibes high whether you are at the poker table, in the club, or up all night at a 3 – day ‌festival.

“‘Right About Now’ is all about igniting that energy that’s been pinned up for the past year. When I listen to the song, I reminisce about my time in college growing as an artist. Whether I was playing at a bar, a wedding, or as a local opener for a talent I looked up to, I was always trying to fulfill my potential. What makes this even more special is that Isaac and I went to the same undergrad and were usually hustling together to reach the next step. I’m so proud of this record and couldn’t be more grateful for Isaac’s flawless vocal delivery.” – Sully

Subtronics Stops in Cheyenne for Two Nights!

Summer is just around the corner, temperatures are rising, flowers are beginning to bloom, and music festivals are slowly making a comeback. After a long year, concert venues around the country are finally announcing events again. To kick off a new era of live music, the Subtronics Outbreak Tour is stopping at Terry Bison Ranch Resort on May 7th and 8th. The Outbreak Tour is bringing quality music, good vibes, and cutting-edge production, so come get down with Subtronics and his friends this weekend!

Venue

Terry Bison Ranch Resort is located right off of I-25 at the Colorado and Wyoming border, just twenty minutes outside of downtown Cheyenne and an hour and a half away from Denver and Boulder. The resort hosts concerts and drive-in movies year-round. Recently, Terry Bison Ranch teamed with AEG to host small music festivals throughout the summer. The resort offers GA and RV camping options, as well as cabin-style lodging. There are also hotels close by in Cheyenne. Terry Bison Ranch provides exciting activities to do during the day, including a train ride tour, horseback riding, ATVs, and fishing. Food trucks and restaurant options will be available onsite. 

Lineup

Subtronics has assembled a killer lineup. Both days are absolutely stacked with various artists from the bass music scene, as well as live paintings from Elle Paisley and Aaron Brooks. Friday night we will see support from Dirt Monkey, Guppi, Level Up, and Calcium. Saturday night we will get down to Boogie T, Space Wizard b2b Guppi, Level Up, and Of The Trees. Along with incredible talent, Subtronics and his team are bringing all-new production and state-of-the-art sound quality for an unparalleled musical experience. 

Enforcing Covid Safety

Although festivals are starting to come back, the Covid-19 pandemic is not over. To prevent the spread of coronavirus, the Outbreak Tour requires all participants to pass a covid screening as well as temperature checks upon entry. The festival is going to enforce all Covid-19 guidelines mandated by the state of Wyoming. This means that the event will be held at a limited capacity and masks will be required at all times.

In addition to the state’s guidelines, The Outbreak tour will provide sanitization stations throughout the festival grounds and will have high traffic areas sanitized frequently. Make sure to follow all these guidelines and wash your hand frequently in order to keep yourself and those around you safe this weekend!
