The Human Experience
The Human Experience

Listeners experience a delicious symphonic blend of prismatic soundscapes and sultry beats.David is constantly pushing the boundaries of live electronic music. Playing, composing, and conducting his own electronic symphony live on stage, his performances are brimming and layered with human emotion, world exploration, and sacred sounds. Whether performing by himself, or with a live band, "The Human Experience" always delivers an emotionally charged show.

"The Human Experience" aims to cross cultural barriers through music. David has collaborated with artists all over the world including Ignacio Perez (Buena Vista Social Club), William Close (The Earth Harp), Random Rab, Govinda, Amae Love, Rising Appalachia, and many others.

Since his debut album "Inaudible Sounds" in 2010 , he has released four other albums in the last two years and has four new projects planned for release in 2013. Each song is a sonic journey; interweaving psychedelic layers of melody and harmony with organic grooves and international vibes.

Composing and performing live with the Audio/Visual/Dance projects "Phadroid" (Andrew and Phaedra Jones), "Quixotic", "Lucent Dossier", and "Seraphim" David is expanding his sounds into the mixed media world.

Since 2010, David has performed all over the world sharing the stage with renowned artists such as, Thievery Corporation, Bonobo, Tipper, Random Rab, Emancipator, Bluetech, Kalya Scintilla, and Kaminanda.

Over the last three years he has toured in England, Portugal, Germany, Russia, Israel, Costa Rica, Mexico, Guatemala, Canada, and all over the United States at a variety of events including festivals like Boom, Burning Man, Lightning in a Bottle, Satya, Symbiosis, and Envision.

Mike Love
Mike Love
Revolutionary music may seem hard to come by in these days and times. Long gone is the era of artists like Bob Marley, The Clash, Stevie Wonder and Patti Smith getting airplay and bringing their messages to the masses. But that doesn’t mean that the revolution isn’t still brewing in the hearts and minds of many people around the globe.

Meet Mike Love. One of reggae music’s rising stars. Born and raised in Oahu, Hawaii to a musical family that spans generations, Mike Love brings a multitude of influences to the table, all tied together by the common goal of making the world a better place.

Which is no mean feat. On his debut album, The Change I’m Seeking, Love harkens the legends of roots reggae in both his lyrics and his sound, but never relies on any one genre to hold him down. Coming from a wealth of influences – he started out playing classical piano as a teenager and later would perform in high school bands that were more akin to the grunge sounds of Soundgarden and Pearl Jam – Mike Love fuses the simple rhythms of classic reggae with the complex changes of the classical and rock music he was first trained on to come up with a style wholly unique to him. Mike is currently wrapping up his second album titled Love Will Find A Way.

But it’s his message, his passion, the wisdom behind his words that truly resonate with his fans. “It’s always been about the depth,” Mike Love explains, “I’ve never been into music that was shallow. I’m still learning. I’m still learning about where I’m going and where I want to be. All the music is a learning tool to me too. I just make myself open to it. All the messages that come through the music, it’s not just coming through me and my wisdom, because I don’t think I’m that wise of a person. I don’t think I’m some wise elder or anything like that. I just make myself open to the music and it just comes through. To me it’s just as much of a teaching for me as it is for anyone who is listening to it and is open to it.”

His songs take you on a journey, one of healing and inspiration. One designed to help you on your path to knowledge, wisdom and understanding. On “Permanent Holiday” he takes you on a lyrical quest for freedom, both his and yours. He laments the ills of the world but also discusses solutions and ideas to change them.

Mike Love has shared the stage with artists like Stephen Marley, Don Carlos, Trevor Hall, Nahko & Medicine For The People, John Butler Trio, Groundation, Steel Pulse, Dave Matthews and Jack Johnson.

Revolutionary, Conscious, Music.
Ben Silver
Ben Silver
You might know Ben Silver as one-third of Orchard Lounge, the long-running Chicago DJ collective that also includes Spencer Lokken and Bethany "Queen B" Lokken. The trio's tag-team sets pack in
bass-dropping tech house, sunset chill-out grooves and other futuristic sounds. Orchard Lounge has had residencies at clubs around the country, including Smartbar in Chicago, Vagabond in Miami and Love in New York. They've gigged at established venues like Red Rocks and
Hammerstein Ballroom, and major festivals, including Lollapalooza, Coachella and Electric Zoo.

Now Ben Silver is going solo, playing psychedelic deep and tech house live and producing original material along with songwriting partner David Hammond. In fall 2015 he released the well-received "Solar" and "Lunar" DJ mixes—in October, Beatport named "Solar" one of the "Top 10 Mixes of the Month."

Janover
Janover
Jamie Janover is recognized as a true innovator. His considerable creative output includes: being a master of the ancient percussion stringed instrument called the hammered dulcimer, inventing and performing on an instrument he calls the "mini-kit" (a miniature amplified drum kit), playing pyrocussion (fire drums) and creating the RealmsMobile (a recumbent tricycle with the mini-kit attached, enabling him to ride and play drums simultaneously).

Combining the innovations of modern technology with the wisdom of ancient instruments, Janover is achieving a creative balance between the electronic and the acoustic to create a unified field: music reflective of the nature of modern times.

For many years Janover has maintained a rigorous touring schedule, alternating between acts including: LYNX & Janover, ZILLA (w/ Michael Travis from SCI and Aaron Holstein), PRAANG (w/ EOTO & Steve Kimock) and The Everyone Orchestra (w/ a revolving lineup), among others. He is currently touring solo performing live PA set style electronic shows using his unique live rig which includes hammered dulcimer, laptop computer, mini-kit, sampler, sitar, electric kalimba and percussion.

When not playing music, you can find Janover connecting dots around the world in his extensive travels and collaborations in multiple creative realms including creating stunning images as a professional photographer, sculpture works using natural found objects and being an emissary for scientist Nassim Haramein of the Resonance Project, delivering fascinating presentations on the physics of unified field theory. Janover also produces music events including an annual electronic music festival in Colorado called SONIC BLOOM.

Tierro
Tierro
"The TIERRO Band brought primal thunder to our main stage this summer, with tribal rhythms and ecstatic guitar leads that took our audience on a climactic journey of dance and sound. One of the few bands in the festival scene who really know how to push the envelope, we look forward to their return to our stages for many summers to come." Emilio Miller-Lopez, Producer, Faerieworlds

The live band TIERRO, delivers a tribal beat, mystic dance experience. Sensual melodies rip into a fusion of earth shaking rhythms that insist you follow, dance, and let go of your inhibitions. Backed up by the legendary drumming skills of Jonny Jyemo , and master bassist Charlie Parker, Tierro's lead guitar stylings conjure up images of Carlos Castaneda, Santana, David Gilmore and Ravi Shankar all with a beat you can't stop dancing to!

That simple line atop Elephant Revival's Facebook page contains only five words, but reveals volumes about the band's reason for being. Music unites us in ways that no other medium can. Even when we don't understand one another's languages - we can be moved by a rhythm, soothed by a song. Brought together by a unified sense of purpose - the spirit of five souls working as one, in harmony, creating sounds they could never produce alone.

The five souls in Elephant Revival are Sage Cook (banjo, guitar, mandolin, tenor banjo, bass and fiddle); Bridget Law (fiddle, octave fiddle); Bonnie Paine (washboard, djembe, musical saw, stompbox); Daniel Rodriguez (guitar, banjo, bass); and Dango Rose (double-bass, mandolin, banjo). All share vocals and write songs. Paine delivers additional beats via footstomps on plywood, her stockinged feet doing near jigs as her hands, encased in antique leather gloves, rub silver nickel against corrugated metal.

This Nederland, Colorado quintet are, needless to say, quite a sound to be experienced - especially when they fall into the pocket of a groove containing elements of gypsy, rock, Celtic, alt-country and folk.

The Indie Acoustic Music Project simply labeled their sound "progressive edge." At least, that's the category in which it placed the band when it gave their Ruff Shod/Nettwerk Records release, BREAK IN THE CLOUDS, a best CD of 2011 award. It's as good a label as any to convey what Rose has described as their mission: "to close the gap of separation between us through the eternal revelry of song and dance."

Elephant Revival also shares a commitment to responsible stewardship of the planet and its inhabitants, working with organizations such as the Conscious Alliance, Calling All Crows, Trees Water & People, and other nonprofits supporting humanitarian causes. Their very name was chosen out of empathy for a pair of zoo pachyderms who, upon being separated after 16 years, died on the same day. The band related that heart-rending story during their April 2012 debut on fellow Coloradoans Nick & Helen Forster's internationally syndicated "eTown" radio show - like Elephant Revival, a blend of music and social consciousness.

Sitting in the audience during their performance, one music blogger was moved to write, "Elephant Revival serenaded the crowd with arabesque melodies, harmonies and rhythms that braided and coiled into a sublime aural tapestry. Their instrumental dynamics, verse, and even the harrowing story that inspired their appellation, invoked the majesty, mystery and sorrow of Mother Earth."

Campout for the Cause festival organizers put it this way in an affectionate shoutout on their Facebook page. "We love Elephant Revival so much," they wrote, "not just for their incredible music and conscious lyrics, but for their commitment to living up to the standards they set forth and setting positive examples."

It's a paradigm worth spreading, and that's what Elephant Revival members intend to continue doing as they carry their music around the world, speaking one song at a time.

Last summer (2013) Sam travelled coast to coast solo live looping at Electric Forest, Shambhala, Evolve, Harvest, Connect, Valhalla Sound Circus, Come Together, Manifesting Magic, after winning 2 sets at Electric Forest through the Instrumental Forester contest. It was a good time. He's played over 100 club shows from 2012-Present. I'll let you in on a little secret - it's me writing this! muahahaha

Fluid Identity (Released 9.29.2012)

Klass spent 2 years developing his act before taking it across Canada. In 2012 highlights include a sold-out Opera House spotlight set for the New Deal's final hometown show, a renegade campground stage at Bonnaroo, Canada Day at a downtown Victoria festival - all stemming from a single epic street performance at Nuit Blanche in Toronto that spontaneously drew a large crowd. Sam's 3rd independent release, Fluid Identity, explores the possibilities of live looping in a multitrack environment, and is a free (no strings) download from www.samklass.com. Go get it now!

Sam has played at Harvest Festival x3 and Come Together Music Festival x5, and has shared the bill with a long list of world class acts including Kaki King, Gramatik, The New Deal, Marco Benevento, Charlie Hunter, Robert Babicz, Daniel Wesley, Killah Priest, Maylee Todd, Deep Dark Woods, The Reason, etc.)
UNFOLD_Music
UNFOLD_Music
Represented by The Mile High Sound Movement, UNFOLD_Music is the Colorado Based hiphop electronic project, from Colorado's own constructor Aaron Thompson. The project began 2 years ago with the spin of a record and the sound of a drum beat. Shortly after the start of the project, local guitarist Zach Gendill joined in to make the electronic duo, bringing smooth blues and jazz licks to every live performance. Being an up and comer in Denver’s electronic scene is something to hold high. Playing shows with Mikey Thunder, Eliot Lipp, Supervision, Late Night Radio, Russ Liquid, Thriftworks, BassPhysics, Unlimited Gravity, Project Aspect, Artifakts and Marvel Years. The genre spectrum continues across the board and it shows the versatility the band has for any crowd. A dynamic and ideological producer, UNFOLD has always taken a community driven approach. They work hand in hand with producers from surrounding areas with a new generation of hip-hop & EDM producers, bringing a new musical vision to life. It’s about the fans and friends they continue to make. “We’ve been lucky enough to meet the people who inspire us and who have helped us grow into the musicians we are.”
