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 Trolley Snatcha.
A musical innovator and aficionado of bass, Dirt Monkey has fostered a well-deserved reputation for his unique ability to infuse a pure and unadulterated sense of funkiness into even the filthiest of beats. A veteran producer and DJ who has earned the respect and admiration of his peers, as well as the adoration of his fans, Dirt Monkey excels in the studio, and is truly in his element behind the decks. Possessing a vast knowledge of music production and an uncanny ability to harness exactly the sound that people want to hear most, it’s no surprise at all that Dirt Monkey’s style is as dynamic and evolving as the state of electronic dance music. Expanding his reach far beyond himself, Dirt Monkey launched his music label Kairos Audio with fellow bass connoisseur, Jantsen; together they continue to educate and augment the future of many.
