ARISE Claims Title of ‘Largest Camping Festival in Colorado’

ARISE Music Festival returned to Loveland, Colorado for their seventh year of music, art, yoga, workshops and locally sourced food and produce. Held on Sunrise Ranch, a holistically managed ranch based on the pillars of community, enlightenment and sustainability, the entire event was geared toward creating a space that helped maintain the grounds’ pristine conditions.

This year, the event grew substantially, awarding ARISE the title of ‘largest camping festival in Colorado’ (surpassing Telluride Bluegrass Festival and Sonic Bloom). Festival planners say that the reason for this year’s success is ultimately due to the lineup, which included fan favorites such as Tipper, CloZee, Beats Antique, Sunsquabi, Defunk, and Rising Appalachia.

Dave Tipper gave two incredible performances, each displaying the artist’s widely popular blend of ambient bass music and glitchy trip-hop. His famed sound, combined with captivating visuals created by industry-favorite Steven Haman created two completely unique sets that highlighted the mountainous surroundings.

CloZee, a little bit newer to the main stage, followed Tipper’s set with a worldly instrumental bass set that kept the entire crowd on their feet. She played a mix of fan-favorites and crunchy edits of Sumthin’ Sumthin’ and Ratatat. Hailing from France and catching like wildfire over the United States, her music is quickly becoming a household name for music-lovers of all genres.

Sunsquabi gave a high-energy performance to their devoted fanbase. Walking through the crowd, there were tons of families and children having a blast dancing to their upbeat blend of improvisational jamming and electronic funk. If one Sunsquabi set wasn’t enough for fans, the electronic funk band also stepped on stage with Autonomix, a Denver-based electronica jam band. The members had a blast on stage and even ended with some unreleased music that will leave fans refreshing their music platforms for weeks to come.

Oddly enough, my favorite set of the weekend wasn’t from an artist on the lineup. On Sunday, ARISE put on an official Children’s Talent Show, which featured break dancers, singer/songwriters, hoopers and more! The turnout was huge and the cheers were loud for every performer that came out on stage. There aren’t many music festivals that are safe (or frankly, even fun) for kids to attend, but ARISE absolutely made a tremendous effort to make sure that the weekend was fun for fans of all ages.

I think that inclusivity is my favorite part of going to music festivals; it doesn’t matter what you wear, or what you do for a living. The only thing that matters is that you show up in your truest form and that you accept others for doing the same. I can’t imagine a better place to really find yourself than Sunrise Ranch. With the festivals’ impressive turnout this year, I’m hoping that next year the ARISE team works on increasing security staff for quicker entry into the grounds, as well as more elaborate stage designs. Much like the name of the event, I truly think that ARISE is on the rise.

Feelmonger Drops Remix of Mersiv’s ‘Select Da Bass’

Feelmonger, Photo by Ted Daroski

Matthew Pham, better known by his alias Feelmonger, returns to the scene with the release of yet another complex and bass-heavy remix. Inspired by Mersiv’s widely popular track, Select Da Bass (released March of 2017 with nearly 50k plays on SoundCloud), his remix has been blessed by Mersiv himself, landing Pham an official remix title.

Feelmonger entered the bass arena about five years ago and was heavily inspired by artists like Bassnectar, Jantsen, Craze, and Space Jesus. His sound, while in the arena of Dubstep, sets itself apart with complex bass lines, intense yet balanced layering, and a unique unpredictability that leaves listeners patiently waiting for the next drop.

I had the chance to talk to Pham about his style, his influences, and his plans for the rest of the year. For clarity, my questions will be italicized.

Bradley: Tell me about your inspiration for creating this track.

Pham: It’s been a while since I’ve heard a Dubstep song that reminded me of the earlier era like Bassnectar, Rusko, and Datsik. I wanted to create something that was similar to those but with some influence from 2019. Also, I’ve been digging Mersiv’s releases and his “beautiful and filthy” ethos and I felt that his recent releases leaned more towards the beautiful side. I wanted to contrast this one and go fully filthy with it.

What do you hope to achieve on your journey of creating music?

Pham: I want to eventually move from the bedroom studio into a live environment where I can curate experiences for audiences; similar to what Bassnectar does. I want to have a totally immersive live experience that changes people’s perceptions of concerts. I also want to eventually produce a body of work that is timeless, and evokes the entire spectrum of human emotion.

Do you have any shows coming up that your fans can look forward to?

Pham: I am playing at the Back 2 Bellingham Festival in Washington State at the end of September alongside Stylust, Neon Steve, Pigeon Hole, and Klutch. I also plan on releasing a mixtape in mid September with some unreleased goodies and collaborations.

This Weekend: Autonomix w/ Special Guests at ARISE

Autonomix at Arise Music Festival 2019

Just over a year old as a band, Autonomix has taken the Denver music scene by storm, providing a sound that combines jazz, funk, psychedelic rock and modern electronica. The band consists of Jeff Pfannenstiel (Drums), Zack Smith (Guitar), Danny Littler (Bass), and Josh Nermon (Keyboard). Their debut album Counter Balance (released earlier this month) was a huge leap forward for the band, locking them into even more prestigious opportunities like being direct support for Papadosio at Summit Music Hall on October 18th. Autonomix will be performing at ARISE Music Festival this Saturday, August 3, during sunset, 8:00pm – 9:15pm at the Starwater Stage. With the festival fast approaching, the Autonomix extended an invite to their band practice where I got an exclusive look at their creative process, listened to some unreleased material, and sat down for an interview during their break.

Thanks so much for having me over! How did you guys get started as a band?

Josh: Well, these three started without me at first…

Zack: Danny and I had just come out of playing with Telemetry. Some friends connected us with Jeff and we ended up putting together a sort of casual jam. We had another keyboard player. We ended up “vibe”ing really well together. We got about three weeks into the band before the keyboard player quit. We all freaked out for about five minutes, I called Josh and had him in the band about 5 minutes after that.

Josh: And I had just quit my other band the week before. Me and Zack had been trying to play music together for over a year so it kind of worked out perfectly.

Was the vision for Autonomix always to be a psychedelic jam band?

Zack: I’ve always wanted to make music like this. I went to my first STS9 show as a metal-head and was like “wow, this kind of music can have this kind of effect on people?” So when the four of us started jamming—Jeff’s favorite band is Lotus, Danny’s into Disco Biscuits, Josh and I both love STS9—that was kind of the natural direction we went in.

Josh: It was all super natural. The first time we all played together it was like a 15-minute improv.

Jeff: We pretty much record each practice, which helps a lot in the writing process. Our song off the new album Harmonomix came out of an improv jam.

That’s actually my favorite song on the album.

Zach: That song came out of an improv at our second practice as a band. The improv we did isn’t far off at all from how the song ended up getting recorded.

Do you guys come up with a set list for all of your shows, or is it mostly improv?

Danny: We come up with set lists.

Josh: [laughing] Well, except for that one time…

Danny: As we’re getting better at this, we’re trying to learn to read the room a little bit; the crowd we’re playing to, the location, whether it’s a nighttime Cervantes set versus a daytime festival set and kind of fit those factors into a solid set that tells a story.

Alright, I’m curious… What’s the story of the show where you guys didn’t have a setlist?

Josh: We played this STS9 after party at this mansion and the whole night got pretty wild.

Zack: So we had wrote a setlist and we played our first set… then for some reason we decided to tear the setlist in half and just went for it in our second set… [laughing] things got crazy that night!

It was so cool watching you guys in rehearsal and I think I noticed it at Sonic Bloom too, but do guys sign to each other while you’re playing?

Zach: We have our own sign language. The saxophone player that sits up with us, Carl Cox, him and I used to play in a band together and we wrote our own signs for communicating key changes on stage. Then Danny here expanded on it an came up with even more signs for the rhythm parts of songs. So when you see me on stage making weird signs, I’m prepping the band for a key change, and if you see Danny making them, he’s prepping us for a rhythm change.

Danny: Each of our sets are about 40 to 50 percent improv so communicating is really important.

Autonomix has only been around for a little over a year but I still feel like I’ve seen your name everywhere. Can you tell me a little bit about how you’ve grown so quickly and successfully?

Josh: The great thing about this band is that we’ve all really played to our strengths and have taken the right opportunities to keep the momentum going. We all know that in this industry, losing momentum is detrimental to expanding as an artist. It’s always going through the front of our heads, “what can we be doing to take steps forward?”

Zack: A huge advantage that we have is the fact that we practice here at Jeff’s place for free. We’ve been lucky to be able to methodically pick and choose which shows we want to play and not have to worry about making $400 a month to cover rent space. We’ve only played about 13 big shows in the last year. We really don’t play for money. We all have jobs outside of this band, so any money we make with music gets invested right back into Autonomix.

What’s your favorite show or festival that you guys have played so far?

[all laughing]: Album release at Cervantes!

Josh: But ARISE this year is going to be really special because we actually won a contest to get to play there last year.

Can you tell me more about that?

Josh: So every year, ARISE holds a Rock the Fest contest where fans vote in a list of their top 10 artists and then a panel of judges choose their three favorites. Our fans really came through for us and got us a TON of votes. We had only been a band for about four months so ARISE ended up being like, our third-ever show. It was epic.

This is actually my first ARISE. What can I expect to see?

Zack: ARISE is definitely a lot more family-oriented. I’d say it’s half about the music and half about the workshops and the yoga and the art-installations. It’s all-encompassing.

Josh: It’s one of my favorite festivals… the grounds are absolutely beautiful, it’s right on a lake. The people who put it on put a ton of focus in keeping the event sustainable, not using single-use plastic, that type of vibe.

Zack: I’d say environmentalism, safety, and fun are the three pillars of ARISE Music Festival.

Jeff: The very first thing I did when I moved to Denver a few years ago was go to ARISE. It’s really cool to get to be on the bill.

Josh: Not quite ready to announce this yet, but we will have some very special guests on stage with us. People are going to lose their minds when they see what we have planned.

Can we have any hints?

Josh: The people or persons sitting on stage with us are also on the ARISE lineup… and it’s definitely someone big.

As a band, how do you like being based in Denver?

Josh: The music community is something like I’ve never seen before. We help other bands, they help us, it’s really a symbiotic relationship.

The music industry in Denver, to me, definitely highlights collaboration rather than competition.

Josh: Right! And it’s not like that anywhere else. I moved from California. Out there, it’s cutthroat… the fanbases are divided… I knew I wasn’t going to make it as a musician out there. Danny and Zack are actually the guys who convinced me to move out here…

Zack: To join a totally different band!

Josh: But they’re some of my best friends. They knew that being a musician is what I wanted to do and they helped pull me to where I needed to be to become successful.

Zack: The competition that does exist in Denver is healthy. There are a million different shows happening every night, so if you want to stand out, you constantly have to be working really hard to put on a good show. So while we aren’t necessarily competing with other people, we see our peers stepping up their performances and it pushes us to do the same.

Your fanbase is clearly really supportive of your music and your message, do you have anything you’d like to say to them?

Zack: We worked really hard over the past year on this album and learned a ton. The final product is something we’re really proud of. We have so many friends who have been with us since we started the band, and they have totally shown up for us. They’ve been patient with us during the last 6 months of trying to get this album out there and while we haven’t been able to personally thank each and every one of them, none of that goes unnoticed.

Josh: We have so much gratitude for every single person who’s ever shown up to a set, bought a tee shirt, or even just pressed play on a song. We’ve got some amazing friends in our corner.

What is it like being a part of this band?

Zack: [laughing] It’s like dating three other dudes except you don’t get any sex out of it and you spend a lot of money.

Moontricks Talk Bluegrass & Bass Music at Sonic Bloom

(Photo by Matt Love)

Among the many talented acts at Sonic Bloom, the unique sound of one duo specifically stood out. Hailing from Western Canada, Moontricks brought on a high-energy performance to the Hummingbird Stage. Sean Rodman and Nathan Gurley specialize in the creative combination of bluegrass and bass music. They were kind enough to take a few moments to sit down with me to discuss their art. For clarification, my questions will be italicized.

Thank you both so much for sitting down with me; so, tell me a little bit about how Moontricks got started.

Nathan: I started a long time ago, just with the intent of combining electronic music with acoustic music… guitars and harmonicas and things. I’ve always kind of been into both. Sean started playing with me about five years ago.

Sean: I had started playing the banjo, which is such a random instrument (laughing)… it seemed to be a good fit.

You guys have a really interesting sound. To me, it’s a perfect example of how electronic music is able to seamlessly combine two seemingly unlike genres of music. You’ve got bluegrass and bass music. Who are some of your influences from either side of that spectrum?

Sean: I’m going to say Bob Dylan…

Nathan: Maybe like, the Grateful Dead? Bunch of stuff like that…

Sean: Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles…

Nathan: I guess anyone who’s kind of combining electronic music and acoustic music. We’re always trying to pay attention to what’s going on with our peers and our friends.

How did you two meet in the first place?

Nathan: We have known each other for quite a few years.

Sean: Small town, basically. Nate grew up in a small town, I ended up there.

Nathan: I knew his ex-girlfriend (laughing) in Canada there’s only so many people.

Sean: Yeah, it was just like, “you play music, I play music….”

Nathan: That’s really what it was though! I found out he played music and he was really good. I was like “sick!” Someone to collab with!

Speaking of collaborations, I especially love the track you guys make with Dirtwire. Who are some other artists that you hope to collaborate with one day?

Sean:….Bob Dylan

Nathan: (Laughing) Yup! That’s it! Nobody else!

I’d love to see you guys work with someone like CloZee

Sean: Oh yeah that would be sweet

Nathan: I agree! But I don’t know, you guys tell us! We love hearing back from our fans.

You guys have played some of the coolest music festivals. Lightning in a Bottle, Shambhala… they’ve been on my bucket list for years. What is it like getting to perform at such cool places?

Sean: Lightning in a Bottle was just last month, and it was phenomenal.

Nathan: First time there, it was awesome. And we actually live right around the corner from Shambhala, so that’s kind of like our hometown festival. We’ve been there many, many years.

So what can your fans expect to see from you guys in the next year?

Nathan: Well, we’ve got a bunch of releases coming out. Undetermined when, but we’re working on a lot of music, a lot of videos and different things. I can’t really give specifics, but there will be lots of surprises. Hopefully touring more and traveling to new places.

With your music really being split down the middle between bluegrass and bass music, what is your fanbase like?

Sean: Well, I guess it’s like, tonight we’re playing Sonic Bloom and tomorrow we’re going to a folk festival in Edmonton.

Nathan: It’s a mixed bunch.

Sean: We can kind of get away with a little bit of both. It’s awesome.

How does it feel to be here in beautiful Colorado?

Sean: It’s awesome! The sunset, the mountains, it’s been great. Getting to hang out with our agent, Matt, it’s been really fun. I love Colorado.

Does this mean I’m going to get to hear ‘Mountains’ tonight?

Sean: We’re in the mountains! We have to play ‘Mountains’!

I love that! I’m so excited. Thanks so much for sitting down with me, I hope you guys enjoy your weekend!
