[The Audiofiles] Bass Physics Revamp Echosmith’s “Cool Kids”

With a tinge of Electro Soul and a whole lot of bass expertly layered over glitch infused Dubstep – Colorado duo Bass Physics has been cementing a name for themselves in the festival circuit. In the past few years, they’ve graced the stages at Global Dance Festival, Decadence NYE, and South Park Music Festival – just to name an elite few. When these gentlemen take the stage, a sonically soothing vibe resonates over the crowd while smiles abound on dancing faces.

While on tour the past year, their releases were kept to a minimum – good thing that’s all about to change. For their first release of the year, Bass Physics laid their eyes on Echosmith’s indie pop hit “Cool Kids” and never once looked back. The groovy new single is currently available for Free Download, so dance your way to their Soundcloud and have yourself a little mini tribal while you’re waiting for the weekend to set in.

From our own experience of growing up in a public school system, there is enormous amounts of pressure on kids to conform to social norms, good and bad. Preventing natural development of character, our society emphasizes being normal or “cool,” rather than being independent and unique. This track inspires us to ignore the norm and live the life that we want to live; we aim to inspire others to do the same.

UPCOMING SHOWS:04/10-12 – Euphoria Music Festival – Austin, TX
04/25 – Red Rocks Amphitheater w/ Savoy – Morrison, CO

[Artist Spotlight] Late Night Radio

For the last few weeks while I’ve been moving, I’ve been making a point of slowly but surely migrating from the bottom right of the Lightning in a Bottle flyer up to the top left just so I could really understand the entire breadth of the line-up.  I made it about three lines up until I had to stop myself because my ears were swimming with a new sound; something that found it’s identity somewhere between the groovy rhythms of MoTown Soul, the raw emotions of Hip Hop and our new age electronic influences. Originally from Houston but now residing in Denver, Late Night Radio – known to friends as Alex Medellin – puts a fresh take on old favorites; transforming classics into revamped masterpieces in incredible Vinyl Restoration series as well as his EP’s – Far Into The Night and Concrete Collage.  They’re so funky and retro, but with a unique flare of Electro Soul that keeps you dancing minute after minute.

Each time I’ve gone back to the lineup, I find myself going right on back to LNR – and each time I listen to his mixes, I find a new moment to covet or song to obsess over.  I’ve even converted my boyfriend and our housemate into fans – and as it stands, we’re more excited about LNR at LIB than almost everyone else on the lineup.  His collaborations with Robotic Pirate Monkey are obscenely amazing but I’d have to say, my current favorites are ‘For Dreamers’ – and his latest mix in the VR series.

I can picture it now: a lazy Saturday afternoon in the beautiful, Monterey sunshine – hundreds of smiling faces, of every age and every type of music lover – grinnin’ and groovin’ to some of these LNR sounds…
