Beatport Presents: VibeSquaD & Opiuo (Fall 2012 Tour)
Date: Jul 26, 2012 (Thursday)2012 has been a massive year for redefining dance’s space in American popular music. However, if looking for a deeper, funkier and heavier good time, the combination of bass-bin rattlers VibeSquaD and Opiuo on a Beatport sponsored fall American tour is a must attend event! Not to mention they will be joined in select cities by SuperVision & Herobust.
VibeSquaD (The Untz Favorite!)
Lying somewhere in the space between the wild energies of funky, psychedelic rock and the deep grooves of dance music’s love affair with bass, Denver, Colorado DJ/producer Vibesquad excels at providing a signature style that has carved him a unique niche as a veteran creative performer. Born Aaron Holstein, his deep background as an instrumentalist comes into play as a natural understanding of how to harness and release the strength of crowd-friendly melodies and breaks buoyed with low-end power.
Ever wanted some extra funk in your life? What about some warm syrupy bass sauce to compliment your daily adventure? Well now you can have all that and more within the perfectly crafted sonic soundscape that is the DJ/producer known as Opiuo. A Kiwi who now calls Australia home, Opiuo is a chief sufferer of intense musical addiction, spending every spare second creating audible treats and selling out venues throughout the world. Featuring pop-driven melodies laid over atmospheric grooves, the drummer turned producer’s sounds are grounded by an inventive, glitch-driven and bass heavy low-end that has garnered masses of fans around the world.
If a bass fanatic needing another reason to check out this major national tour, note that Opiuo and Vibesquad will be performing tracks as a duo during the events. Furthermore, a collaborative studio release between the two will be recorded over the course of the tour as well. In addition, tour sponsor Beatport intends to record live content and release it via their website, as well as offering special VIP packages to meet and greet the performers as well as unique tour branded merchandise. Additional tour promotion will be provided by internationally respected website, The Untz, state of the art BASS providers – PK Sound, as well as to multi-media experts, Acid Flyers.
