~~~~~~~~~~ Vibe Street ~~~~~~~~~~
Denver, CO based Vibe Street (Ben Davis) brings a flavor that is unrivaled in the world of music today. Taking influences from game-changing producers in the ever-exploding Electro-Hiphop-Glitch-Funk movement, and combining it with elements of bluegrass, folk, blues and jam, Davis has coined the genre “Grass-Hop/Future-Folk” to describe his unique sound. Ranging from feel good, blue-grassy tunes, to soulful, spacey electronic beats that can rock a late-night dance tent, Vibe Street combines forward thinking and versatility, and is providing music fans across all spectrums with the refreshing dose of originality that they so desperately crave.
~~~~~~~~~~ Brightside ~~~~~~~~~~
For the 24 year old Queens native producer, Brightside, it’s not just about the music, it’s about the movement. Brightside has a predominantly mid-tempo sound, drawing inspiration from all ends of the spectrum. In a conscious effort to reach all audiences, Brightside samples a widely eclectic library of music from all around the world, creating psychedelic sounds with Middle Eastern, Asian, Classic Rock, Hip-Hop and even Reggae flare. Brightside’s project has been gaining momentum in the past year. Having opened for acts such as Ill.Gates, Break Science, Paul Basic, Kaminanda, Govinda, Futexture, Schlang, and Technicolor Lenses, he has been able to put his vision into motion. A homemade visual project as well as graffiti/street art movement for Brightside is in full effect right now. He is also working on putting a Brightside Live project into play, combining electronic music with live instruments on stage.
