VibeSquaD (CO-Psychadelic/Crunk/IDM)



VibeSquaD, aka Aaron Holstein, is Colorado’s most beloved bass music producer/performer/innovator. His trained musical background contribute to his unique take on bass music, which carries him around the country playing packed clubs coast to coast.

Since VibeSquaD’s inception in 2007, he has released three full-length albums, two previous EP’s, as well as and singles for Interchill, Multi Music and Proboscis. The New Creatures EP is his next release, showcasing his top-notch production skills and originality over the course of six tracks. The EP is charged with the energy and positivity that has come to define VibeSquaD’s signature sound and vibrant stage persona.

In addition to his deep electronic production abilities, New Creatures shows the influence Aaron’s twenty plus years experience playing live music in various touring groups has on his sound. As a trained multi instrumentalist with a jazz background, VibeSquaD adds melodic sensibility to these gems of bass music and truly delivers on in this six-track EP. Equipped with tweaked vocal samples, polyrhythmic textures, and trunk rattling bass, these tracks grab hold and refuse to let go. Swirling, soaring synth textures weave throughout hard-hitting drum patterns on top of crushing bass thick enough to send any dance floor into a frenzy.

Kilowatts (Philladelphia, PA - Downtempo/Techno/Breakbeats)


Jamie Watts is the mind behind KiloWatts and his many different projects and styles. His work embraces the bulk of electronic genres, including breaks, IDM, techno, and downtempo. His fluency in piano is evident throughout his work, as is his penchant for jazzy riffs, intelligent structure, wistful melodies, and an often cheeky take on the current state and history of electronic music as a whole. His album “Ground State” is out on Native State Records, home to fellow pioneers Bluetech and Shen. It’s a collection of sweaty psychedelic downtempo grooves, churning molasses-thick basslines, and undulating synthetic sonorous mandalas. KiloWatts has albums on Artificial Music Machine that are full of visionary dimensions, fusing together a dexterous knowledge of sound synthesis, deep emotional articulation, and solid melodic intuition. Peppered throughout these monumental statements are releases with class labels such as Harmonious Discord, Thoughtless Music, and his own outlet, KiloWatts Music, that celebrate his adept technical expertise, often bringing a whirlwind of mindblowing digital wizardry in the form of glitches and edits.

mARTian (Nashville, TN - Downtempo/psychedelic/Live electronics)


Art Webb and Ian Hill from This is ART and Corleone combine forces to perform in a new side project with an arsenal of electronic wizardry and live drum chops. Original tracks and the freshest beats by the best producers around will be mashed, bashed and tweeked to the boundaries of audible extremes with live electronic improvisation by the best producer/dj in the south, ART WEBB. This set will be a hybrid between live jamming, knob-turning, filters, effects and nasty drum beats combined to create a sound and feeling unheard in these parts. Do not miss this debut. They will lay down the musical red carpet for Kilowatts to KILL IT. This night is going to be SO GOOD...M+ART+IAN = mARTian. Getcha some.

SynerGee is once again proud to piece together a night of music that covers many different sides of this electronic polyhedron we all love. It will be a true treat to have a new project followed by KiloWatts' first trip to Nashville with his beautiful downtempo waterfalls of musical bliss.

We are also very STOKED to bring back my boy Aron Holstein aka VibeSquaD. Please spread the word so we can make 12th and Porter come down with explosions of street beats and glitchy bass bombs. I know I'm excited!!! -SynerGize
