Congo Sanchez
Congo Sanchez
The evolution of this ensemble has happened naturally over the past year and a half. Having already captivated audiences from coast to coast, and now with the completion their first full length record, 'Dealin With This', it is clear that Congo, Haile and Flex are on the rise as a cutting edge musical force.

Congo's time as the drummer for Thievery Corporation has clearly had an effect on his ear as he continues to explore the down-tempo, reggae mezcla, with an obvious hip-hop overtone to the composition. Listeners of 'Dealin With This' will hear an array of sounds and rhythms, paying homage to the roots of music with thick layers of percussion; signature to the Congo Sanchez sound. All of this accompanied by a conscious message and an authentic lyrical approach creates a superb listening experience.
Mux Mool

I'm like the beat game Glen Danzig.
Digital Beat Down
Digital Beat Down
Digital Beat Down is a live electronica duo that fuses synthetic
textures and organic instrumentation to create dance friendly
compositions with a prog-rock twist. The distinctive feature of
Digital Beat Down is their ability to draw on the ethos of the DJ
culture while still providing the intangible live band experience. The
duo thrives on creating carefully crafted songs and multi-layered live
looping jams that invite the listener on a psychetronic journey
through the depths of dirty Drum & Bass, to smooth Deep House, to
Crackin' Breaks, or finished off by their bone penetrating brand of
sub bass driven Dub-Step funk.

The duo was formed in Denver, CO in the fall of 2008, by Andrew Lubner
on (drums and samples) and Nick Pilz on (synths, samples and loops).
Digital Beat Down is a high energy attack. Lubner mounts a relentless
assault on the drums and sampler pad, and Pilz thumps the low end
while he warps and weaves the dark melodies and subtle textures that
define the band. In their first year, Digital Beat Down broke in to
the Denver/Boulder scene and successfully toured throughout Oklahoma,
Arkansas, Illinois, and Wisconsin. With explosive live shows and a
tenacious drive, the band is poised to explode on to the national
scene and beyond.
Mikey Thunder
Mikey Thunder
Mikey Thunder likes to party. But more than that, Mikey Thunder just so happens to be the party. Thunder spins a genre-blending, bass-driven partyrock, fusing banging electronic beats with funk, hip-hop, soul, jazz, blues, swing, reggae and anything else the party may call for on the fly. With 19 years in the game, he's mastered the art of improvisation with an uncanny ability to work with and rework the vibe of the party with precision. If you’re a true connoisseur of the Colorado music scene, you’ve seen Mikey share the stage with any number of your favorite artists- no matter the genre.

It all began for Mikey at the age of 15 when he discovered DJing in Springfield , Mass. Thru friends older brother's record collections and the Hiphop scene in the city. From there he moved up to Burlington Vt. and immersed himself in the diverse musical culture. In the fall of 1999, he relocated to the mountains of Jackson Hole where he was soon kidnapped by Michael Franti and Spearhead for the Stay Human Tour. After opening for Spearhead in Jackson Hole, Thunder was handpicked by Michael Franti to open the rest of the tour, where he mixed beats into their sets, during set break, and scratched with their beatboxer, Radioactive.

After the Spearhead tour Mikey relocated to Boulder and continued to pursue his musical career. At that time Thunder also was an Atari playing stuntman/ DJ in the band Sonar. The band shared the stage with the Wailers at the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, the String Cheese Incident, and played Hightimes Magazine’s SXSW party, and the Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam. In the fall of 2009 Mikey joined the Pretty Lights crew, opened for over 30 shows on their tours and performed cuts on the Making Up a Changing Mind EP, released in 2010. He also has played the sold out Red Rocks Amphitheater runs with PL in 2012/13/14.

Since that time, he has made his presence known in every single facet of the Colorado music industry. Over the years he has shared the stage with an extremely diverse range of musicians, including (but certainly not limited to): Bassnectar, The Glitch Mob, The Disco Biscuits, Boombox, Soul Live, Lettuce, The Motet, Michal Menert, Nightmares on Wax, Mr. Scruff, DJ Krush, Bonobo, Z Trip, DJ Qbert, Pete Rock, DJ Premier, Jurassic 5, Slick Rick, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface killa, Red Man, Juicy J, and Big Boi of Outkast. Additionally, he has been prominently featured on such festivals as Shambhala, Sonic Bloom, Snowball, Global Dance Festival, and many others.

Mikey Thunder’s true talent lies in his versatility. Every Thunder performance presents something familiar in an entirely unfamiliar way, as well as something unfamiliar presented in a way that is immediately recognizable as Thunder.
