Being that it is where I’m from, you should all know that GDD loves Colorado. Especially its unique taste in music genres and the epic EDM groups that have come out of there over the years; SAVOY and Pretty Lights just to name a few. However, there is a new presence to be aware of coming straight out of Boulder, CO known as Robotic Pirate Monkey. Formed in early 2010, R.P.M. consists of the B-Town trio of Matt Berryhill, Matt Flesher and Andrew Hathaway (aka. Hathbanger). Since forming R.P.M. has grown their fan base from local to statewide, as the next big up and comers on the Colorado electronic music scene and now they have the chance to prove their weight in the Golden State. For six weeks in May and June, R.P.M. will be cruising around the great state of California, bringing their Rocky Mountain bass to the West Coast. With opening support from THiCK CHiCK and Skywalkerr, R.P.M. announces their Buried Treasure Tour with 12 stops along the West Coast (including a stop at our VERSUS party on the 19th of May) – check ’em out below:

Our friends over at HighBird Productions have been kindly bringing electronic music events to the oft overlooked area just north of Los Angeles better known as the Ventura/Santa Barbara counties for some time now. HighBird is the Ventura County based company responsible for the burgeoning electro scene in that area. Traditionally doing line-ups of local talent supplemented by one or two bigger names from the world of EDM, the boys have decided to step their game up with their next endeavor: GOOD VIBES at the Earl Warren Showgrounds in Santa Barbara. While I have personally surveyed the landscape of the Showgrounds with the intention of hosting a little party there, I can tell you the facilities are primed to offer you one of the best possible outdoor festival experiences you could find in the greater Santa Barbara area.
