Friday June 15th we have: Pretty Lights Music Artists Paul Basic and SuperVision!!
Over the last several years, Colorado producer Paul Basic (Paul Brandt) has developed his own brand of beats fusing dusty samples with hard hitting drums and razor-sharp basslines. His roots are in drumming, having played in a band with label-mates Michal Menert and Derek Vincent Smith through highschool before moving on to produce his own tracks. He draws from a slew of inspirations in order to create his own style within the PLM electro hip-hop movement. A Colorado native, Paul lived on both coasts while pursuing a degree in audio production, before he came back to CO to team up with his crew and begin his quest for domination of the global dance floor.
The sounds created and played by SuperVision are the works of Richard Blake Hansen. With a DJ career spanning over 12 years and 1000+ gigs, his place in the music industry has been found. Within a couple of years of DJing he was cutting his teeth in music production. He moved to Fort Collins Colorado in 2002 and met Derek Vincent Smith and Michal Menert. After studying production and learning from the best, he went on to audio engineering school. He has enjoyed sharing the stage with such well known acts as Pretty Lights, Michal Menert, DJ AM, Jazzy Jeff, Public Enemy, DJ Craze, Klever, DJ Skribble, Steve Aoki, Tommie Sunshine, Quest Love, Classixx, La Riots, Villains, RJD2, and Ghostland Observatory to name a few. In 2011 SuperVision has arrived. Available now for free download is his latest project ‘Telescopic’.
When drawing from the right pool of inspiration, sometimes the right mixture of sounds can come together and make something new. Possibly something hard to put one name on. Today people like to jump on the next genre bandwagon, and intentionally make music that fits one genre. SuperVision is not about one sound. Instead it is about many sounds brought together with an approach that delivers a stylistic sound design that isn’t classified with one or two words. It is a sound that you can count on evolving without departing from what makes it unique.
Today, Adrian and the Sickness continue their rock-n-roll pursuit, touring the US and Europe, and constantly writing and recording new music. In July 2011 they launched their fifth independent release “Criminal/Dog Days” and their first on 7-inch vinyl. Adrian and the Sickness is an action-packed world-class rock experience and it’s coming straight at you.
Their 2010 sophomore release “Follow Through” builds upon the success of the group’s self-titled 2008 debut album, once again showcasing their unique mix of reggae, rock, and dub that fans can’t get enough of. Reliably packing dance floors, the perpetually touring act has really evolved in the past year on the road. Their sound continues to morph with their live Dub-Step experimentation and high energy renditions of their original and catchy recorded tracks.

With over 400 shows, 4 releases, and 8 tours across two continents since their formation in 2009, Mad Dog and the Smokin’ Js have established themselves as one of the busiest road bands in Colorado. High-energy delivery and powerful songwriting propel the power trio’s reputation as a premier Denver based roots rock’n'roll band.

MDSJ is currently touring with their forth release and working on their fifth; due out for release in mid 2012. In 2011 the band found good success with the release which drifted away from the power rock to a more surf roots and rockabilly sound. This sound was further enhanced with the appointment of but seemed cut short with the leave of Frazier, but lead to the acquisition of current guitarist and singer Jay Nasty. The sound again evolved to a wider spectrum of country roots and punk rock influence with their forth release, “Wired and Tired” (2011 15¢/HighFive Records).
Friday and Saturday night from 9:30 until 2!!
The Sessh’s musical rue uses funk-rock and soul flavored ingredients from New Orleans as well as early 70’s funk, hip-hop and driving rock. The band has completed their first EP “Fressh Vol.1” and continues to add to their repertoire of original material while allowing the music to grow from their experiences together.
Bursting with energy, emotion, and unpredictable experimentation, the Colorado based trio tears open the artistic envelope, bringing both nuance and eclectic strength to their electrofunk oriented repertoire. Their sound is both atmospheric and ambitious, without losing the pedal-to-the-metal power that keeps their audience dancing into the night and wanting more.
