Sharing the big news

  MARCH 2, 2018

         "We come in peace! Cosmic Music Festival landed in downtown Phoenix last Saturday and brought plenty of otherworldly vibes with a space-centric soundtrack including psychedelic space rock, hypergalaxy hip-hop, planetary progressive trance and extraterrestrial electro. Of course there was also a whole galaxy of cosmic snacks, art, fashion and fun." All photos by Michelle Sasonov.

 NYS is an aggressive bass music culmination of a classically trained pianist and a street trained badass accompanied by eccentric visual art.  From Burning Man to Ultra Music Festival-these trashy non shadows get around.

Fiasko フィヤスコ

image185

 Collidoscope was booked for the original date in March 2020 but are unable to make it for July 2020, If everything aligns properly, they plan on being at our following show instead, and are a band formed on the perpetual desire to bring something new to the table. In a landscape of producers saturated with the perfunctory “Live Band”, the trio strives to take risks where others don’t. Whether it’s the rotating cast of guest musicians, the seamless blending of genres, or the healthy dose of improvisational jamming woven in to every set, the band has a clear mission: to make every show unique—a one time experience that leaves the listener hungry for the next one.

M3NACE

 M3NACE brings his own signature touch to his music not only through professional production prowess, but through his voice, too — M3NACE writes his own lyrics and raps on his tracks, separating him from the pack of up-and-coming producers around him. Expect to feel on top of the world when you step into M3NACE’s realm: hard beats, unique lyricism, and spreading your love to the world is the name of his game. Some highlights throughout his career include his original track “MAKE IT SHAKE” and remixes of Slander and Dylan Mathew’s “Love Is Gone” and Excision and Sullivan King’s “Wake Up,” offering a fresh take on each iconic tune.

Gordo is unable to make the July date but has expressed interest in future shows.

"Using a technique known as live looping, I essentially build my songs one instrument at a time by playing and recording each part, then "looping" them back, allowing me to then overdub the next instrument and vocal parts as I perform and "build" the song.

The end result is a full band sound, complete with harmony vocals, rhythm guitar, bass guitar, lead guitar, keyboards, harmonica, and percussion, all performed by one man, and done completely live."

From 1999 - 2011, Cinematic Manipulation began his journey in music under the name DJ Question?. After seeing video manipulation turntablist, Mike Relm, open up for Blue Man Group in 2011, he was inspired to work with video and music. Thus, VJ R-M8E was born!

After changing his name to VJ R-M8E in 2011, he had truly found his passion of combining video and music into one live performance. He calls this "Cinema Electro", which is a perfect blend of fusing audio and video mixed live! In early 2013 VJ R-M8E started creating live songs by mixing nothing but movie clips as instruments. August of 2015, VJ R-M8E hung up the videos and headphones for a short hiatus to start taking things to the next level!

Summer of 2016, he started working on new material and taking it to a whole new level! He could of come back with the old VJ name, but wanted to start back up under something new... something never seen before... something that is way before it's time... something called Cinematic Manipulation!
