There is something infectious about the beginning of the festival season. Maybe it's the weather slowly warming up causing us to peel off layers of clothes to unveil sun-hungry skin. Or maybe it’s the plans we begin to formulate about far off exotic countries with names we can't even pronounce and events that rage until dawn. It must be something about driving up and down the coast of our sunny state on the far-out edge of the world, sea breezes whipping our hair and house music thumping from speakers. Whatever it is—this time of year is electric here on [...]

Summer is just around the corner, and if mainstream Coachella isn’t really your scene, the progressive vibe of Lucidity Festival might be just the place to kick off the 2013 festival season. The 3-day event is taking place in Santa Ynez just outside of Santa Barbra County on April 12th - 14th. Lucidity went off for the first time last spring, and pulled in an impressive crowd of open-minded music and art lovers. The festival came about as a collective project between multiple Santa Barbra-based music and art communities, and has grown into a substantial event with a [...]

I was on the fence about this year's Snowball Music Festival. The lineup was spotty, with the heavy hitters being strong, but not strong enough to warrant a trip up to Winter Park. Today's last lineup announcement knocked it out of the park. Flying Lotus, Delta Spirit, Krewella, Japandroids, Polica and Tennis to name a few have been announced. I guess it's time to start looking for accommodations. The last two years have SOLD OUT, so my recommendation would probably to get your tickets ASAP.

Ski bums around the country and locals, you might want to clear your calendars for the weekend of March 8 - 10. The Snowball Music Festival has set up in Winter Park no thanks to those pesky townies of Vail. I'm holding my breath for the next two waves of scheduled guests, but the first wave is pretty stellar. Scoop up your tickets here and get more info here. Kendrick Lamar (Feat. Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, & Jay Rock) - Swimming Pools (Black Hippy Remix) [mp3] [...]
Hip-Hop group Zion I continue to forge new ground musically on their latest LP Shadowboxing, a beat-heavy hip-hop album decidedly grittier than past projects. Always pushing the literal—and figurative—needle forward, the duo, consisting of emcee Zumbi and producer Amp Live, have once again created something experimental and heartfelt. Shadowboxing features guests such as Bassnectar, Grouch and Eligh, Collie Buddz and Goapele. A move from the live instrumentation of their last record, Shadowboxing enlists a range of producers such as Traxamillion, Timeline, DexBeats, Minnesota, who bring an unconventional, eclectic flavor to the album. With its futuristic beat, “Float,” produced [...]
Zion I on tour with Minnesota - California Shows More information @ http://www.zionicrew.com & http://www.shadowboxingtour.co m Video shot and edited by: Spencer Groshong for Ineffable Music
One of our favorite Cali boys is back at it, dropping an EP this week just in time to help us dance off all the calories from the Thanksgiving feast. His newest collection of work titled Altered States contains Minnesota's usual dubstep feel but he also gets involved in some trap and glitch hop. The first track on the EP "To the Floor" has the usual vibes Minnesota gives but definitely has a different spin to it then most of his other work. These melodic vibes presented in the first [...]
As we predicted it would , Minnesota's Altered States EP delves deep into the more psychedelic and transcendent elements of dubstep. Tracks like "Yoga Pants," "Tokyo," and "Indian Summer" feature conspicuous trap percussion, before veering into powerful, analog synth-driven drops. "To the Floor" and "Float" maintain a distinct glitch hop feel, showcasing Minnesota's penchant for hip hop. On the whole, the EP is a clean, well-wrought conception: an amalgam of dubstep, trap, glitch hop, and ambient. Pick up the entire EP for free from Minnesota's website , and get lost in his slick, soporific basslines. [...]

Bassnectar 's new "Freestyle EP" has been causing quite a ruckus lately, which should come as no surprise to anyone.
