Bass Physics
Bass Physics
Bass Physics is an upcoming electronic group bled from the heart of America's electronic music scene: Denver, Colorado. The coalition of A.P. Adair and Luke Sims began when they met in music tech lab at Cherry Creek High School in 2010. In May of 2012, after coming home from Iowa State for summer break, Sims came to Adair with what is now "loco" a track to be featured on their debut album.

In the few months since the group has ben formed, Bass Physics has been creating quite a stir in the local electronic scene. With four shows under their belt, and more booked Bass Physics is soon to be a readily recognized name. Playing in venues like Cervantes Masterpeice Ballroom, the Aggie Theater, and Western State University, they have been undaunted in their goal to spread positive vibes to their audience', creating an already impressive fan base.

Their music is a mashup of different sounds including hip-hop and down-tempo grove-step, but they are described as "electronic-soul". Bass Physics has built quite an impressive repertoire already, opening for wel-established national touring acts such as; Zion I, Minnesota, Diego's Umbrella, and will soon open up for the likes of Watsky, Radical Something, and many more. With an album release on the way, this is definitely an exciting time to learn about Bass Physics.
Blunt Force
Blunt Force is the musical vision of Austin, Texas locals Brian Gustafson & Deniz Baykal. Mixing elements of funk, hip-hop, and livetronica, Blunt Force has quickly gained notoriety throughout the scene with their unique blend of styles.

Heavily influenced by the rise of sample-driven electronic music, Gustafson sought to add his own touch to this newly emerging genre. After moving to Austin, Texas in 2011 to attend St. Edward's University, Gustafson began producing music out of his freshman dorm room. Not wanting to be just another DJ, Gustafson strived to create a unique style of his own by blending sample-based productions with rhythmic guitar riffs.

Blunt Force began performing live in the fall of 2012. With the addition of live guitar in his sets, he began to stir up quite the buzz around the Austin scene. After playing extensively in Austin, Gustafson slowed down in 2013 to focus more on his productions. This resulted in the release of his first EP, "A Brighter Tomorrow", in February of 2014. After the release of "A Brighter Tomorrow", Gustafson paired up with drummer, Deniz Baykal, who he had met while attending St. Edward's University. The two debuted the new live show at Euphoria Music Festival in April of 2014. The match was a perfect fit, bringing even more of a live dynamic to the already high energy Blunt Force live set.

Blunt Force has shared the stage with Paul Basic, The Floozies, Orchard Lounge, Dopapod, Freddy Todd, DrFameus (Allen of the Disco Biscuits), Michal Menert, Kill Paris, Sunsquabi, Late Night Radio, Robotic Pirate Monkey, TAUK, Archnemesis, Eminence Ensemble, SuperVision, The Magic Beans + more. In addition, Blunt Force has played Euphoria Music Festival, Wakarusa Music Festival, Summer Camp Music Festival, Head for the Hills Music Festival and Sonic Bloom Music Festival's fall festival, Sonic Blossom.
