.::: Signal Path :::.
Signal Path began in the mountains of Missoula, MT in 2001 where they forged a unique brand of electronic dance music by splicing technology with raw instrumentalism. Now thriving in one of the most explosive electronic scenes in the country, the Denver based band creates powerful studio work and wildly popular live shows. Playing to packed crowds throughout the US, Signal Path’s unique live experience is as beautiful as it is intense as they bend guitars, basses, drums, mandolins, and the bajo quinto around a core of unrelenting rhythm and massive low end production.
After releasing five albums of entirely original music between 2010 – 2011 including a full length entitled Imaginary Lines in Sept of 2010, and then releasing a new EP on the first day of each new season throughout 2011, this prolific band is about to release a studio project unlike anything they’ve ever done.
Signal Path’s new mixtaEP will feature remixes mashed up with Signal Path’s unique take on electronic music. Artists featured include, Zola Jesus, The Roots, Active Child, Skrillex, Austra, Shabazz Palaces, Mode Selektor, Main Attrakzions, Asap Rocky, Sleighbells, and Cults.
With this new studio release, Signal Path has taken some of their favorite current artists and sliced, diced, and turned them into a musical collage unlike anything they’ve done before. From the unlikely, yet emotionally deep Zola Jesus/Skrillex mashup to the instant banger, Swerve, featuring Shabazz Palaces, this new mixtaEP is pure ear candy for not only hardcore SP fans but fans of electronic, hip hop, and indie music as a whole.
.::: The Malah :::.
Denver, CO based live-electronic trio, The Malah, have been captivating ears across the country with their organic, electro grooves since 2003. Having recently relocated to the burgeoning music scene in Colorado, by way of Greenville, SC, The Malah have spent the last decade touring relentlessly, mastering their sound, and gaining a devout fan-base along the way.
In a scene where live-electronic music is running rampant, the Malah have managed to stand out by mixing rich, earthy atmospheres with electrifying rhythms. The trio explores the meeting point of cutting-edge technology and ancient musical theory. Creating a unique sound that is praised in both the “Jam” and “Electronica” communities. The music is constantly evolving and brings together influences from an endless array of genres including Funk, Hip Hop, Jazz, World Beat, Trance, and Breakbeat with an effortless transition.
Truly a musical journey, every note is strategically placed with the utmost care; every melody finds its cosmic percussion partner in the sound space continuum. With a focus on layers and melody, bassist Elliott Vaughn provides a steady backdrop groove to compliment the axe wizardry of Brandon Maynard. With both members adding in carefully crafted beats and samples, the sound is met in a musical utopia by the explosive percussion of drummer Seth Fankhauser.
