ABOUT SoDown | Denver-based multi-instrumentalist SoDown is known for his signature saxophone funk-infused performances and stunning releases. He has quickly become an absolute must-see for anyone looking to jam out with performances at some of the biggest festivals like Coachella, Electric Forest, Global Dance, and Sonic Bloom. Additionally, his emotionally compelling arrangements have heartfelt and spiritual connotations imbued within to entice listeners’ souls further. Blurring the lines between the organic and the electronic, the music is both exhilarating and meditative all at once, equally at home on headphones as it is blasting out of a festival PA. The writing is deceptively sophisticated, drawing on stoicism and Eastern philosophy in a search for some greater meaning, and Ehren’s production is similarly ambitious, drawing on dubstep, future bass, reggae, and hip-hop with the same intoxicating mix of live instrumentation and electronic elements that’s made SoDown a live favorite on stages from Red Rocks and The Gorge to Coachella and Electric Forest. The result is a rich and cinematic sonic hybrid, one that manages to balance the visceral and the intellectual in perfect harmony as it grapples with life and death, darkness and light, struggle and transcendence.
ABOUT RAPIDGRASS |
Rapidgrass embodies the notion that nature, and particularly mountains, can bring out the best in our art, and we have dedicated much of our creative energy into bringing that art back to the people of the mountains. Rapidgrass focuses on travel to mountain towns and inspires mountain people and athletes around the globe. Our music is motivated by and made for those who find peace in the mountains. We focus our energy to outdoor mountain lifestyle/culture events. Focusing our travels to mountain towns has also given us a great palate of mountain music styles to draw from including styles from North America, France, Italy, Russia, Tibet, Argentina, and Ireland.
