Ben Samples: Choose Your Own Adventure LP

Ben Samples is one of the staples discussed when throwing around names in the glitch-hop and midtempo genre of music. His unique sound design and bass lines have such a distinct sound that he has helped evolve the direction of where the music is today. Samples has matured his sound over recent years and help his local area of Denver/Boulder Colorado become one of the Mecca’s for bass music. His duo act with Greg Fisk, Fresh2Death, has toured all over the States and considered one of the best live shows around featuring live remixes. His energy, skill, and talent is unmatched when he steps behind the controls, it’s truly a performance more than anything. Choose You Own Adventure is Samples new album released by Made in Glitch. The title is baed on choose-your-own adventure children’s book series that became popular in 80s and 90s where you chose your own destiny. This 15 track release is just that, an adventure into the mind and world of a legendary bass warrior battling through the life of a rockstar. The album has chapters that bring a familiar nostalgic feel and others that take us on entirely new trip into new dimensions. You will never know what is around the corner but it’s one hell of a ride. Throw the album on shuffle and see how long you survive.” – AfroMonk

In an era where most artists simply churn out singles as fast as they can and then compile them together into EP’s, it is always a pleasant surprise to see an artist spend the time to put together a cohesive concept album. That is exactly what Samples has done for us with his Choose Your Own Adventure EP. Pick your adventure and enjoy the ride!

Greg Fisk MegaPost!

Greg Fisk

With over 10 years of DJing and 2 years of Production experience, the last several years have catapulted Greg Fisk into becoming a staple innovator in the Denver/Boulder electronic music scene. Playing shows from Arizona to Tennessee, Texas to Illinois, and all throughout his home-state of Colorado, Fisk knows a thing or two about working crowds into a frenzy. His originally produced tracks explore a synth-driven experimental hip-hop style, which takes the listener on an elusive journey of sound innovation and musical mysteriousness. Blending the likes of Glitch-Hop, Electro, Whomp, Dubstep, and Crunk, Fisk has something up his sleeve for every environment, emotion, and entity his mind can conceive of. Fisk is continually pushing the limits of live music manipulation and strives to keep every live performance unique, fresh, and most importantly “Head Noddin”.

Fisk’s charisma, unique sound and high energy shows have attracted the interest of numerous artists and he is also a key member of the Denver Bass Squad, a crew of DJs and producers that is the forefront of bass-culture music in the Colorado Front Range area. Fisk also performs alongside Ben Samples (aka Samples) in their collab Fresh2Death, or otherwise known as “GirlFriend BullShit”. Look out; both Fisk and Fresh2Death are blazing their names into the Colorado music scene.

+Verb: Xmas 2010 Mini-Mix (All Original)

I have to hand it to +verb, he is insanely prolific and all of his tracks are of the highest quality. +Verb tries to produce a track every day, and is one of those artists that has a library so full of unreleased tracks that he could play a set for as long as the time slot allowed. Many people would say that quality is preferable over quantity, but how can you complain when an artist is constantly putting out tracks, and each one is better than the last?

If you are a fan of +verb, or even if you haven’t heard any of his tracks yet, this +Verb Mini-Mix is one of the absolute necessities of 2010. I have been waiting for weeks for this release, and I must say that it did not disappoint in the slightest. Every track +verb produces is imbued with a part of him that makes it easily recognizable as his own, and frankly, most of his remixes end up as significantly better than the original. If you are looking for artists to follow as a prime example of someone leading and defining the movement, +verb is a perfect choice.

This MiniMix, a free gift from +verb to all of us as an early christmas present, is a perfect sample of the extroardinary work produced by this amazing artist. Many of his recent highlights are featured on the album, including Maltodextrin and his recent collaborations with Stephan Jacobs and Richard Sweat. Give it up for +Verb and check out all his new material, especially the MiniMix, it should keep you dancing long into 2011!

Concert Review #1: Project Aspect & PantyRaid

December 3 was an absolutely sold out night at the Boulder Theater. With a venue occupancy of around 1000, the show was an absolutely packed and wild party. Project Aspect started off the night at around 9pm, playing a fantastic all-original set and starting the show off on a more downtempo melodic note. In order to get the crowd ready for the insanity that was PantyRaid’s performance, Project Aspect worked the crowed into a wild frenzy with his increasingly crunk beats and energetic melodies. It is absolutely impossible to watch Project Aspect perform without being drawn into his presence on the stage. With seemingly the slightest of effort, he pours his heart and soul into every song, and you can always read his passion in the expression on his face. Project Aspect is no opener, if you have a chance to see him perform, take it!

PantyRaid came onstage at the perfect time for their performance. Composed of the all-star duo of Ooah (from the GlitchMob) and MartyParty, PantyRaid perfectly utilized the wild and frenetic energy raging through the crowd at the end of Project Aspect’s set. The duo had an amazing dynamic and it was clear from both their on-stage interactions as well as the quality of their set that they have great artistic chemistry. At the end of an extraordinary 2+ hour set during which multiple girls had to be “escorted” off stage and ejected as a result of their attempts to reach the energetic duo, Ooah finally announced his profound love for Boulder, Colorado, and the party of epic proportions that took place at the Boulder Theater the night of December 3.

Be sure to check out some of the new music put out by both MartyParty and Ooah, as well as Mile High Sound Movement’s very own Project Aspect!

Greg Fisk: Lunar Ocean

Returning to us today with multiple great releases is previously featured Colorado local, Greg Fisk. Fisk is half of the Colorado super-group Fresh2Death (Along with Ben Samples), and they have been touring the country tearing up the dance-floor recently. Now returned to us, Fisk has put out two new songs of a more trip-hop melodic variety. “Lunar Ocean”, as well as the Fisk Remix of “WunderKind” feature the more experimental hip-hop side of Fisk’s production. Both tracks have the standard Fisk emphasis on crunk basslines and engaging melodies, but the overall feel of the songs is far more spacey and psychadelic (Especially that of Lunar Ocean).

Greg Fisk’s sound is maturing rapidly and to top it off, he is giving out both of these new tracks for free on the Fisk SoundCloud. Download Lunar Ocean now and support this Colorado Native; I promise you will not regret it!
