Apostles

Studying Ableton Live at Dubspot (based out of NYC), and producing for 4 years, Apostles has laid the groundwork for understanding music production, and has crafted his own method to the supernatural ecstasies of which music affords us.

Apostles is a very inspired producer, seeing music all around him constantly, producing ideas and flowing thoughts. Translated into music, it becomes a sonic landscape of imagery and emotion that craves to be heard.

Following faith and music around the map, from the hills of Boulder, the flat lands of Fort Collins, down to the urban streets of Denver, many landscapes and many scenes have paved the sound that you hear today.

Apostles is the conception of music with a purpose; ideas merging with sounds, lush soundscapes painting vivid sonic imagery. Apostles is facilitating the bigger picture and you are the newly found puzzle piece. More than just sounds, his music carries intentions from the heart, here for both pleasure and enjoyment but most of all as a eulogy to all life, and prayers for the soul to keep.

Shalom, aho, blessings, amen, it is all the same. Just be good to one another and forge a path of purity with divine aim. All are sacred, all are created in divine relations. The balance remains.

Havok

My name is Phil Leonowens and I go by Havok (purposefully spelled with a 'k')

I'm a DJ from Guatemala who's been playing in Colorado for 6 years now playing with the likes of Terravita, Party Favor, Omega, and Crizzly. My heart beats at 128 because I love house music so much so I love incorporating house elements into my multi-genre sets which I have span twerk, moombahton, trap, house, hip hop and drum and bass. Currently I play out a lot of the bars around town including more frequently, Boulder House with DJ Knives on select Saturdays of every month, and occasional shows at the Fox theater. I've been with bus to show since 2014, and during the day I am a software engineer at Solidfire on pearl street

Sassfactory

The first thing you might notice when meeting Emma Badman (AKA Sassfactory) is her accent. It’s an uncommon mix of British and Bostonian, and like the rest of her, combines unexpected qualities into a completely unique sound. She’s sassy, a bit sarcastic, and keenly aware of what music makes people have a good time. It’s all music you can dance to, the kind that gets your toes tapping without you even realizing; the soundtrack you might meet your first love to, while on the dance floor, with laser beams framing their face and panda bears dancing onstage in the background. Sassfactory… it’s kinda like that.

Sassfactory also DJs under the name “Queen B” for Boulder hip-hop duo Glitta Kings.

Bowzr

Andrew Bower is not exactly the fire breathing, princess-stealing dragon from the Mario series (actually, he might have those qualities but that is another story). In fact, most waking hours are spent either behind the lens or behind the screen.  With drive summoned from fanatic nerdism, Bowzr strives to perfect his craft in all forms of composition, whether it be the crowd losing their minds in the lower-third or evoking powerful emotion through the flow of bass music.

Bowzr's goal is simple, to put in happiness, hope, and a little more empathy into a world struck with blind hatred and ignorance that can be crushed with knowledge. As a journalist, he is well trained in directing a situation to place him in the best part to capture the story of the night. He has a natural knack for falling into opportunities that crave his multi-layered skill-set with graphic design, photo/videography, and audio production. With a talent core of close friends and ever-expanding ear skills, Bowzr is primed to become not just a person, but an entire concept built around a team. A dedicated, experienced team that will one day be the pinnacle of modern-day electronic music production.

Radio Flyer

Radio Flyer is the solo mission of one of Boulder's all time great electronic music producers, Harry Watkins.  You know him from his work as half of the duo, Proper Motion. Now you can listen as he formulates some new and exciting musical concepts.  Some of what he is doing here is testing grounds for what may later become Proper Motion tracks.  A lot of it, is unique to Radio Flyer.  One of the most exciting things that occurs any time an established musician produces work as a solo act, is that we get a feel for their individual stylings, making it easier to recognize and pick out the contributions they make to the larger sound.  In addition, the pressure of creating music with a specific fan base in mind is greatly diminished, allowing Harry the freedom to try things that he may not feel are appropriate to do as part of Proper Motion.  In other words, anything goes and his own creativity and technical ability are the only limitations on what is possible.  Fortunately, this with Radio Flyer, sky's the limit.

SHIRLZ

I love hitting the studio and getting up on some drums to warm up. I was vending a show in Chicago at the Abbey pub and I looked around with the music and all my friends ripping up the dance floor and it was then and there I decided to start playing music live also.  The next day I purchased some DJ software for my computer and a few days later made it to same ash and picked up my first mixer.  I have been seeing live DJ shows and festivals for about 10 years now.

Sonic Geometry

Sonic Geometry defies the status quo. Although we live In an age of limitless musical possibilities and ever ­expanding technology, producers and musicians rely more and more on their tools to do their job for them. Mediocrity and sameness is the result. Sonic Geometry was founded on the sole principle that technology shouldn’t be a crutch, but a launchpad for the advancement of creativity, expression, and artistic innovation.  Sonic Geometry uses technology to push boundaries. Producer/guitarist, Andy Beyer creates a genre­-defying sound, setting a new standard of what an audience should expect from their electronic music producers and live bands. With an elaborate array of keyboards, electronics, and traditional instruments, Sonic Geometry takes us through a never­-before-­heard musical world of melody, groove, glitch, and improvisation that constantly expands the limits of what we thought musically possible.
