| VibeSquaD | Denver, CO
VibeSquaD, aka Aaron Holstein, is Colorados most beloved bass music producer/performer/innovator. His trained musical background contribute to his unique take on bass music, which carries him around the country playing packed clubs coast to coast.
Since VibeSquaDs inception in 2007, he has released three full-length albums, two previous EPs, as well as remixes and singles for Interchill, Multi Music and Proboscis. The New Creatures EP is his next release, showcasing his top-notch production skills and originality over the course of six tracks. The EP is charged with the energy and positivity that has come to define VibeSquaDs signature sound and vibrant stage persona.
In addition to his deep electronic production abilities, New Creatures shows the influence Aarons twenty plus years experience playing live music in various touring groups has on his sound. As a trained multi instrumentalist with a jazz background, VibeSquaD adds melodic sensibility to these gems of bass music and truly delivers on in this six-track EP. Equipped with tweaked vocal samples, polyrhythmic textures, and trunk rattling bass, these tracks grab hold and refuse to let go. Swirling, soaring synth textures weave throughout hard-hitting drum patterns on top of crushing bass thick enough to send any dance floor into a frenzy.
| Ill-esha | Denver, CO
For many years ill-esha has weathered the dynamic, often ephemeral soundscape of electronic music, simply by being an original. Im not really an observer. Im very much a participant and a creator, self-describes the Vancouver, British Columbia-born artist, songwriter, producer, and DJ. Everything I do in my life, it quickly becomes way more than a hobby. From growing up in the EDM hotbed of the Pacific Northwest, attending raves in her teens, ill-esha accelerated her musical passions to the fullest. First I wanted to be part of this culture as a DJ, doing vocals and curating music. After that, I also needed to participate in the music I was playing, referring to her progression as a producer and headlining performer. Ive just been moving one step up at a time over the years, into being this completely original show.
