ARTIST SPOTLIGHT & TICKET GIVEAWAY: KJ Sawka at The Black Box Thurs 11/2/17! 

CRAVING SOMETHING DIFFERENT??? Discover pure fucking percussion inspiration. You will likely want to go out and buy a drum kit after watching KJ SAWKA. He is undoubtedly one of the ABSOLUTE BEST live electronic drummers in the world right now. For those of us who have been following Pendulum since the early 2000s. It seems like KJ Sawka has always been an unstoppable force in the live electronic genre. Continually breaking down barriers with pure talent. In his 20+ year musical career, he has released singles, remixes, and worldwide platinum records with the likes of Pendulum, Destroid, Conspirator, Blood Drums, ill.Gates, and Mr. Bill while touring worldwide and giving back to producers everywhere.

“KJ Sawka plays some of the rawest drums around. And that’s before he adds electronics. On an acoustic drumset, he creates the whirs, delays, effects, and sonic dislocations of electronic music. Adding an arsenal of devices further broadens his palette, providing an atmospheric bed for his extremely visceral drumming. “I really try to re-create the drum machine beats of electronic music with an acoustic drumset, simultaneously triggering the actual snare, kick, and hi-hat sounds,” Sawka explains from London. “I try to sound as electronic as possible. I become the machine.” [FreqCulture.com]

POTW-The Malah @ The Unified Field: SONIC BLOOM pre-party

P H O T O(s) OF THE W E E K–>

This past weekend I had the amazing opportunity to go to the the pre-party for the much anticipated Sonic Bloom Festival held this summer in Georgetown, Colorado! The Malah a local groove-funk trio headlined the other side @ Cervantes Saturday night throwing down an absolutely face melting set. Although they had a competing set time with artist such as Octopus Nebula and Bluetech who headlined the ballroom’s main stage Saturday, these guys still seemed to have the high energy Jam-Electronica set style needed to draw groves of fans of all ages who might have otherwise been dragging their feet by the final sounds late Saturday night. All around these guys are definitely a group to start “following”! Chances are they won’t be playing such a small stage forever…enjoy! 😉
