1. Tell us about the origins of your Beat Tape Vol. 1, and what ways you decided to play off of that for this new version.
The beat tape work that we do is always about preserving the art of sample-based hip-hop. Major influences for this style come from some of the hip-hop greats, like J Dilla, 9th wonder and Madlib. Nothing new on this one, we really just looked to make a classic hip-hop record and also release some of the hidden gems that fell into the very deep depths of my hard driveRead More

The build up for Melody Lines & Collidoscope’s headline show at Cervantes was slow, steady, and a long time coming! When you spend a lot of time around venues and shows, you hear the “scene” talking about specific upcoming shows more than others. Aug 16th, was one of those shows.

It’s no wonder the show was reported as around 10 tickets OVER sold-out. Needless to say, Denver turned out and a party was had.Read More

Denver is never short of exciting shows coming down the pipeline, but some tend to stand out more than others. To me, Bass Physics, Cofresi, and Megan Hamilton this Saturday represent such a show. I was excited as soon as I saw the three names on the same flyer a couple of months ago. The insanely talented, drumming machine known as Cofresi has been high on my list since I saw him in New Orleans a couple of years ago. I’ve always wanted to see him in Denver. Megan Hamilton rounded out my top 3 favorite sets at Sonic Bloom this year. And as for Bass Physics, y’all probably already know what’s exciting about Bass Physics, but in case you don’t keep reading cause we caught up with him about what he’s been working on, ways he thinks we can all help save the world, and exactly why his manager told us to expect an, “incredibly immersive, over-the-top experience” this Saturday with Rubikz Visuals and 303 Lasers both on the ticketRead More
