Sunsquabi
Sunsquabi
The 3 Piece Electronic Hydro Funk Experience from Boulder, CO known as SunSquabi is poised to break out in 2015. The group has performed at some of the country’s most notable music festivals (Wakarusa, Summer Camp, Euphoria Music Festival, Mcdowell Mtn Music Festival, Sonic Bloom, Snowball, SXSW and more). Since May 2012, the trio has been consistently touring the U.S. and rapidly gaining recognition from the ever-evolving EDM and Livetronica markets. SunSquabi has shared the stage with Big Gigantic, Pretty Lights, GriZ, Murphy of STS9, Up Until Now, Two Fresh, Conspirator, Michal Menert, Boombox, The Floozies, Archnemesis, Break Science, Minnesota, Ghostland Observatory and many more.
Constantly on the studio grind, SunSquabi is always striving to change and mature their sound. They continue to break down and analyze the expectations of what a “Live-Electronic” band should be. Through their own studio recordings and collaborations with other artists such as Griz, SunSquabi is dedicated to their ever evolving craft in the studio and on the live stage.

A recent overhaul on the live set has propelled the group into 2015, with plans to tour all over the U.S. They will be making appearances at several major festivals this summer, with an album release planned for late Summer 2015.
Signal Path
Signal Path
Signal Path began in the mountains of Missoula, MT in 2001 where they forged a unique brand of electronic dance music by splicing technology with raw instrumentalism. Now thriving in one of the most explosive electronic scenes in the country, the Denver based band creates powerful studio work and wildly popular live shows. Playing to packed crowds throughout the US, Signal Path's unique live exp
erience is as beautiful as it is intense as they bend guitars, basses, drums, mandolins, and the bajo quinto around a core of unrelenting rhythm and massive low end production.

After releasing five albums of entirely original music between 2010 - 2011 including a full length entitled Imaginary Lines in Sept of 2010, and then releasing a new EP on the first day of each new season throughout 2011, this prolific band is about to release a studio project unlike anything they've ever done.
Signal Path's new mixtaEP will feature remixes mashed up with Signal Path's unique take on electronic music. Artists featured include, Zola Jesus, The Roots, Active Child, Skrillex, Austra, Shabazz Palaces, Mode Selektor, Main Attrakzions, Asap Rocky, Sleighbells, and Cults.

With this new studio release, Signal Path has taken some of their favorite current artists and sliced, diced, and turned them into a musical collage unlike anything they've done before. From the unlikely, yet emotionally deep Zola Jesus/Skrillex mashup to the instant banger, Swerve, featuring Shabazz Palaces, this new mixtaEP is pure ear candy for not only hardcore SP fans but fans of electronic, hip hop, and indie music as a whole!
Vibe Street

Some of my music is made with samples. All of it is made with love.
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.
DeluXe
DeluXe
DeluXe hails from the peaks of Vail, CO. Fusing Live trumpet with his original beats and remixes he is an exciting upcoming act not to miss. DeluXe is also known for bringing out fellow musicians to feature at shows, often times drummer Chris Anderson of Sunsquabi. With the release of two albums, countless remixes, and features on glitchop.net he has undoubtedly made a name for himself in the Electro Funk community. DeluXe has shared the stage with the likes of Michal Menert of PLM, Mikey Thunder, Krooked Drivers, Muzzy, Mux Mool, Late Night Radio, Marvel Years, Artifakts, Proper Motion, Congo Sanchez, Lidsky, BeatServer, JackLNDN, and more.
Kinetik Groove
Kinetik Groove
Austin O’Meara’s passion for music has been cultivated since an early age. After picking up and jamming on a guitar over ten years ago, a simple, typical hobby has developed into a burning passion. Austin’s passion for music has propelled his musical project as Kinetik Groove, and things have never been groovier.

Throughout his musical career, Austin has shared the stage with such notable artists as Eddie C. Campbell and Shirley King in Chicago. Throughout school Austin worked to further develop his musical skillset and began crafting his own sounds. Kinetik Groove was born through various guitar, bass, and synth recordings compiled through a Frostex multitracker. As the electronic music and “jamtronica” scene slowly started to make its way into Austin’s life, he sought to derive a unique sound from the key qualities of his favorite artists.

Austin has dedicated the past two years of his life to the crafting of electronic music infused with flavors of funk and jazz. The Kinetik Groove project draws inspiration from the classics – James Brown, Otis Redding, Al Green. Soaring synth melodies and punchy kicks bring a fresh spin to one of the most appreciated and loved genres in history. Kinetik Groove is here to stay, and ushers in a brand new generation of groove with his arrival.
