Dirt Monkey – aka Patrick Megeath, is smashing 2019. With roughly a dozen
recent high profile releases, and a stacked tour schedule already under wraps, a packed festival season is about to begin, and more new tunes are on the way.
Over the past several years, Dirt Monkey has carved his uplifting, bouncy, and unique sounds into the Denver dubstep community, and onto the national touring scene. He finished last year with a strong release schedule: “Wubula” (SubCarbon), “Beef” w/ Boogie T (SubCarbon), and “Wobble Like This EP” (Disciple Round Table), He took this brisk pace into to a fall tour with Bear Grillz and direct support on a Ganja White Night tour at the beginning of last year that sold out nearly every date.
Dirt Monkey has always striven to fuse the wonky, high-energy sounds of old school dubstep, and the crisp sounds of EDM. Now, he’s succeeding in bringing that sound to a global audience.
Boulder, Colorado’s Jantsen has been pushing the envelope of the bass-centric electronic music scene for several years. Jantsen draws inspiration from his elevated surroundings, bringing together the influences of electronica, jazz, blues, funk, rock, hip-hop, and every single sound in between. Like an alchemist working his elixirs, Jantsen performs precise musical chemistry, creating new bass-funk gold. His musical style looks to the horizon of the scene, progressively pushing creative boundaries, expanding upon the typical to make them abnormal. Truly, the best way to listen to Jantsen’s music is to experience it live–the energetic sound waves and contagious stage presence are what make his show one of a kind. Jantsen’s music has been on the decks of many Djs, including: Rusko, Datsik, Downlink, and Trolly Snatcha.

The experimental bass scene is on the rise, but few have cut through the noise like New Orleans duo, sfam, comprised of Jacob Hoerner & Michael Pearson. They’ve positioned themselves as one of the most impressive and innovative new acts in bass music. Taking inspirations from their love for heavy bass and minimal trap beats – sfam has formulated a dark, distinct sound of unique, amorphous, original beats that have gotten them support from industry tastemakers such as UZ, Bassnectar, Dirt Monkey, sumthin sumthin, Kai Wachi, Toadface, CRAZE & more. Fresh off the release of their latest EP on Drama Club Recordings, sfam proves that they are here to stay as their sound continues to evolve with every release. Locked and loaded with an arsenal of unreleased music for the upcoming year, 2019 is set to be a true breakout year for sfam.
