March Fourth Marching Band is a guaranteed blast. March Fourthâ€”M4 for short--is the Boba Fett and The Americans of Portland. Actually, more accurately, Boba Fett is the M4 of Denver, as they long preceded the bounty hunter-clad drum major and his guerrilla marching band brainchild. Anyone who's witnessed Boba and company in action will understand what exactly I'm talking about. Last July, Boba and company descended on an already lively Double Daughters anniversary soiree I was hosting, instantly transforming it into a full-on raucous ruckus.
Kostas Kouremenous has been searching The Mile High City high and low for the perfect set of pipes. Kostas isn't a plumber, though, he's a producerâ€”a DJ and dance music producer, to be exact. Although he's had his fingers in many different Denver pots over the yearsâ€”a shoe store, a modeling agency and a number of nightclubs now (Amsterdam, Pure, Lotus, DC10, Zen)--partnering with Triad Dragons' Ha Hau on Global Dance Festival at Red Rocks was his single most in-the-black business decision to date.
Playing with words is in Lea Luna's blood. Little is known about the Denver DJ/songwriter's biological fatherâ€”she was conceived in a Manhattan sperm bankâ€”except that he was a graduate student in the writing department at Yale. And apparently hard up for cash. Although her mother just recently revealed this, Luna's been putting pen to paper for as long as she can remember.
The Glitch Mob ain't no one-trick pony. â€œGlitch hopâ€, a genre they're often credited with inventing (or at least popularizing), may have put them on the map, but they refuse to churn out cookie cutter, assembly line club bangers. Drink the Sea, their first fully original full-length, is bound to confound expectations. On the one hand, there are certainly distinctive characteristics that make the record recognizably Glitch Mob. On the other, Sea sees them abandoning many of their signature bells and whistlesâ€”most notably the stutter edits suggested by their moniker.
303 InterviewAlthough none of the artists in this month's feature--303's Master Mix--are unaccustomed to the interview process, Yonnas of The Pirate Signal took the idea of interview pressure to whole new level...
It's never enough when you have artist-on-artist interviews, that's why we're featuring the extended content online. And, it's never enough when Peter Black (Analog Space DJ) gets down to brass tacks with The...
Mu$a is a master of aural kung fu. Two full decades behind the decks tend to facilitate that kind of skill level. Fittingly, Bruce Lee is one of his biggest influences. Lee once advised â€œBe like water making its way through cracksâ€; Mu$a follows Lee's counsel to a tee, perpetually filling the specific needs of each dance-floor he encounters. Versatility enables him to play everything from hip hop to dubstep, but also makes him difficult to pigeonhole.
