Another gnarly track from Colorado locals Big Gigantic! This is the second sneak peek we've had at their upcoming album, which is slated to drop January 11th 2012 for FREE! At first we were a bit thrown off by the start of the track but it really all come together from a slow dubby build with wobbles, to a full on party beat with that classic sax we all love so much! Sit back, turn up your listening device and enjoy the groove of this new beat! Big Gigantic you make us proud!
Alvin Risk adds his own flavor to Kaskade's EDM banger. Female vocals, bass, and crazy synths just go together and this jam has just that. The highs and lows in the song are fantastic and show a lot of creativity by Risk. Make sure to be on the look out for the "Eyes" remix pack due out here in the near future on Ultra Records. Download below and enjoy.
Butch Clancy dropped this free remix the other day on his soundcloud. Melodic undertones, deep thumping bass and a nice moombahton break demonstrate this DJ/Producer's superior skill in the world of electronic music. Clancy always comes correct and releases much of his remixes for free so head on over to his facebook and show some love.
It was a fortunate night for those looking for bass last Friday…it was even more important that all of those bass-heads donated a jacket or blanket to join in on the party. Two hundred plus blankets and jackets along with just under $200.00 were donated to the Open-Door Mission through Play It Forward, a charity event thrown by The CID Initiative. Dubsetep Colorado made sure we were in the house for this community event. Not only were people giving back to those in need; The Acidophiles, Jimeni, TwoScoopS, and DubCO’s very own Ras Cus threw down massive sets at the Aggie Theatre.
First and foremost this was a charity event, but everyone who made it out to this exclusive event was treated to some awesome bass-heavy music. DubCO is proud to say that our own Ras Cus was included on the bill and he lived up to expectations, if not exceeded them. Ras Cus’s best asset is his ability to always be dropping new tracks and remixes that other DJs have yet to even hear. It’s easy to say that Ras Cus has his finger on the pulse of what’s hot. With solid track selection and transitions, there wasn’t a dull moment during his set. Local favorite, Jimeni, cleared out his hectic schedule to make sure he was able to rage the stage and join in on this important charity event. Jimeni proved he was more than capable of getting a dance-floor into a frenzy with his ever mesmerizing turntable skills. It’s an art that is quickly being overlooked and the idea should always be kept in the back of our minds that DJs are the heart of the electronic music scene. After Jimeni got the crowd hyped, the young, up-and-coming producer TwoScoopS had his chance at the stage. TwoScoopS quickly showed his prowess for writing catchy synth lines and combining them with vocal hooks and huge kick drums that left the crowd begging for more. DubCO is expecting big things from TwoScoopS in the near future. TwoScoopS did a perfect job of keeping the crowd excited for the much anticipated performance by local producers and power-duo…The Acidophiles.
Colorado, specifically the Front Range, is a hot bed for budding talent in the world of electronic music; The Acidophiles are no exception to this trend. The Acidophiles, (Amandha Gilson and Zac Rachid) bring a unique flavor to the table that is unlike most acts around Colorado. They are clear believers in the philosophy that a concert isn’t a collection of songs that the audience will react to; it’s a sonic journey…an insight to the mindset of The Acidophiles. Their show is based on a simple, yet hard to master, principle of music…dynamics. They build their sounds from the simplified soundscapes that create a palpable tension to immediately catch the audience’s attention. Building on their soundscapes is their excellent ability to tastefully start to layer drums, synths, and hypnotic melodies over their main theme that the soundscape introduces. This steamy combination ultimately leads to the massive and epic sound The Acidophiles are known for. In one track a listener has found themselves taken from an ambient soundscape to a larger than life experience of pulsing beats, roaring synthesizers, and unmatchable on-stage energy. While watching their set, it becomes obvious why Amandha and Zac make such a great duo…they complement each other. Zac is clearly the “rock” on stage by holding down his laptop and keyboard as if they were both extensions of his own body. There wasn’t one time when he didn’t look to be in complete control of his music. Zac’s on-stage persona can be summed up in two words, stylishly smooth. But, this is only one half of The Acidophiles; Amandha brings the soulful and organic element to the group. Whether it’s her ear-to-ear smile or her very unique and infectious dancing on stage; Amandha is a true performer that feeds off of the audience who then in return feed off of her amazing energy. It’s a relationship she builds with the crowd; even those who haven’t met her feel like she is a close friend. Zac and Amandha made sure there wasn’t one dull moment during their set and the fact that everyone in the building was dancing would prove that point. It becomes obvious that The Acidophiles and their music don’t only belong to Amandha or Zac; it’s a creation of love that is shared by both of them and their ever growing and extremely loyal fan base.

While it was a cold night on the streets of Fort Collins, Gramatik was working a packed Aggie Theatre crowd into a sweaty dance party with his filthy re-mix of Queen’s Princes of the Universe. Gramatik is currently in the middle of a cross-country tour with Pretty Lights Music label mates Michal Menert, Paul Basic, and SuperVision. Dubstep Colorado was at The Aggie Theatre and had intimate access with Gramatik and his crew all night long.
As the crowds were being warmed up on the dance floor by the likes of SuperVision and Paul Basic, DubCO had a chance to catch-up with Gramatik and talk about everything from comfort food, to record labels, and of course his music. Hailing originally from Slovenia and currently residing in NYC, Gramatik knows about people and diversity which comes through in the music. When asked about the unique approach to music, his response was simple, “This is my creation, I make this music and I put everything I have into it. I’m not a damn button pusher!” This is first evident with the presence of a live guitar incorporated into his set. While the hip-hop based beats grab the crowd’s attention, the addition of live guitar adds a powerful dynamic to his songs and hooks the listener for the entirety of the track. Along with the high energy and ever-so-smooth live delivery, Gramatik gives all of his music away for free to his fans. Gramatik explains, “When the record labels start to push you, that’s when you have to push back. That’s why I had to do it.” The “it” Gramatik is referring to was the recent decision to put his discography up on The Pirate Bay to be shared for free. As the night went on, it was evident that Gramatik was extremely excited to be in Fort Collins. Not only was it a chance to experience Michal Menert’s rowdy homecoming, but they get a much needed three days of rest before their upcoming show at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver on Wednesday November 23, 2011. We asked Gramatik what the best part of time off in Colorado was going to be, “Colorado has some good food. There isn’t anything good that you can get on the highway; just McDonald’s, Jimmy John’s, and Wendy’s…we’ve got to go find some good local food.” Well next time Gramatik comes to town, dinner is on DubCO.
Make sure you grab music from Michal Menert, Gramatik, Paul Basic, and SuperVision for free HERE! Their next show is Wednesday November 23, 2011…buy you tickets HERE!
