It’s finally spring and that means we’ll all be out shaking off the winter blues some time soon. So whats on your playlist for that day out in the sun? I’ve got you covered. Check out Tycho.

tycho_reuben_wu_686

Tycho is the musical manifestation of San Francisco based artist Scott Hansen. Scott creates beautiful, atmospheric instrumental landscapes that remind you of looking at a sunrise as you roll down the highway with your hand out the window feeling the air rushing by.

Scott was also known as ISO50, under that name he developed as a visual artist and eventually began creating music that represents his visual style. Scott has moved on from ISO50 into Tycho being a full time gig, where he is not only the musician but he creates all of the album artwork and even the posters for the shows.

Tycho has evolved from a solo project with a sampled style of music compared to Boards of Canada or DJ Shadow into something that feels like an ambient instrumental version of M83 or El Ten Eleven. The evolution from solo artist to a full live band seemed to be an organic process much like his visual work. Check out the track “See” from Tycho’s most recent LP titled Awake, released by Ghostly International.

Tycho is currently on the last leg of a US Canada tour. Recently Brooklyn based duo Beacon have joined them for the last few dates of the tour including the show at The Vogue in Broad Ripple on March 29th. Make sure to check them out.

It was in the basement venue, The Casba that I first saw FIGURE. It was dark, no cover, and the place was packed. The sound that came out of the speakers that night cannot be described and neither can the energy of the crowd. I realized then I was witnessing a mad scientist of beats at work.

Figure went on to play IndyMojo’s Identity After Party and was signed to AM Only (largest EDM talent agency) that same week. His career instantly exploded into a welcomed chaos of shows around the world and tons of releases. Since then, he has only played in Indy twice, at The Amber room which he headlined and at Wheelhouse Music Festival.

This coming Altered Thurzday, we can finally announce his return to playing his home state. At none other than the infamous Mousetrap and for only $8 at that. He is bringing his Terrorvision, which is a collaboration of the most terrifying visuals alongside his Monster tracks. This show is years in the making, let’s kick off the year with a bang, bang!

Josh Gard has had a long history in music. Just a few short years ago he donned the name Figure and began making electro house, but has since become a regular name in all realms of electronic and dance. Scoring positions among the charts may have gotten him recognition, but a hefty amount of praise has been raining down on him lately as some of the leading artists in electronic music have valued his live performance skills as some of the best in the business.

In 2011, his Monsters of Drumstep series married his love of horror with his immense production skills to become the soundtrack for the Halloween season. Figure created his own imprint, DOOM Music to house the Monsters series which has now become an annual release. In 2013 FIGURE’s monsters series became the official soundtrack to Universal Studio’s Hollywood Horror Nights theme park.

Figure recently signed with OWSLA to release “Horns of the Apocalypse”. Horns of the Apocalypse showcases FIGURE’S evolving sound and take on 4/4 dance music with his lead single Eagle. War Call & Beast Mode will remind fans of FIGURE’S signature sound. The EP features DEL The Funky Homosapien (Deltron 3030, Gorillaz, Hieroglyphics) Mr Lif (Definitive Jux) & Nick Thayer (Owsla).

“The direction and influence for the production came from being on tour all of last year and a good chunk of of 2013 so far. The entire EP was written on the road but mastered at my home studio in Indiana using my Neve Racks and Abelton. I’m really looking forward to seeing my fans on tour this fall and hope they all love this release as much as I do.” – FIGURE

October 2013 saw the return of FIGURE’s highly acclaimed Monster’s series, with the release of Monsters Volume 4. Monster’s vol. 4 quickly shot up the iTunes/Beatport worldwide charts with key tracks like Are You Afraid Of The Dark ft. Lexi Norton, Living Dead & The Center of Hell ft/ Helicopter Showdown. All in all the album takes listeners on a 13 song trip through the dark world of FIGURE’s monsters, and showcases another side of Josh Gard’s sound design that ties the LP together with dark interludes like Symphony of the Damned & Death’s Gospel.

When he’s not recording in his hometown studios in rural Indiana, Gard is touring worldwide, with packed tents at festivals like EDC, SnowGlobe, Starscape, The Bounce, Creamfields Australia, Tomorrow World, Global Dance, and Belgium’s Dour. He just ended his 14 city Terrorvision Tour in November and Indy will be the 15th city on January 8th!

Next Thurzday, August 7th will mark the 4th year that IndyMojo has been bringing you beats on a weekly basis. The time has come for us to celebrate this affair and what better way to do that than bringing one of the biggest pioneers in the Bass Movement. Downlink with be headlining the main stage, along with Kodama, Indigo Child, and jFet. There will be a secondary stage out on the patio featuring other local favorites.

 DOWNLINK AKA Sean Casavant is a name firmly cemented in the hearts and minds of the bass music community. He is respected the world over as a producer of the highest quality dance floor bangers. He has had numerous #1 hits on Beatport and has released music with major labels like Rottun, OWSLA and Mau5trap. He has helped mix an album for the legendary nu-metal band Korn. He has toured the planet far and wide, leaving a wake of awe-struck audiences in his path. To see him live is to witness one of the tightest technical DJ’s in the game.

His 3 deck live mixing and infectious stage energy light up venues turning crowds on their heads time after time. Expect lightning fast mixing on a journey through a wide variety of bass music. All tempos are fair game as long as its underground vibes and dirty bass. 2013 was a huge year for Downlink. Along with homies Excision and KJ Sawka, he gave rise to bass music supergroup Destroid, a whole different kind of live experience altogether. You really have to see it live to fully grasp the scope and intensity of the show. Also in 2013,

Downlink launched his brand new record label, Uplink Audio. This will be a place where he will showcase his own music as well as a wide variety of other high grade material. Downlink is not one to be pigeon-holed and is constantly on a quest to evolve and refine his sound. With this in mind, one thing will always remain constant – a pure unadulterated heavy listening experience…

Support from:

The jFET Project began in early 2011 by Producer / DJ “Jangatha.” After over 50 house music releases on some of the most respected labels in both digital and vinyl format, the need to seek fresh sounds was instilled and inspired by the edgy bass music arena. The focus is rather simple, to push fresh hype sounds in any BPM it fits best. jFET’s sounds have been catching on quick.

His debut EP reached #15 on the Beatport Dubstep Release charts, and caught the attention of several respected blogs including The Untz. 2012 included a release from Play Me Records as part of the New Blood of Dubstep. With support from international touring acts such as Figure, Ajapai, and Reid Speed, we will likely be hearing much more to come from this eclectic project. jFET: Intergalactic Hitman / Producer / Performer.

Rob is originally from Lancaster, PA and began his passion for music at an early age. Originally playing classical violin, Rob soon pursued other passions in the music world. His influences include trent resnor, pink floyd, and dieselboy. he began his DJing about 10 years ago and has steadily learned the ins-and-outs. He currently resides in Indianapolis playing several shows a week at Indy’s Moustrap and Doc’s Music Hall in Muncie. He is signed on the G9 Collective as of August 2012 and Cosmic Promotions since May 2012.

Indigo Child taps into the deeper darker parts of your soul. beats that vibrate your ribcage and send electrical currents through your body. every show is 100% raw talent and intimate with the audience. Indigo Child (Rob) wants to provide a connection between him and the audience to help people capture the side of themselves they dont normally see in themselves. This is the darker side of spirituality!

Kodama is one of the first resident DJs of Altered Thurzdaze. He has been spinning beats since ’99. There is no style he has not touched. Kodama took a year hiatus for family reasons. Now he is back in the drivers seat and ready to blow you off your feet with bass.

ShyGuyNinentologoSHY GUY SAYS is an electronic music producer and performer straight from the Mushroom Kingdom, an 8-bit villain ready to destroy any party at any time and somehow leave his victims wanting more. His eclectic, yet upbeat and danceable sound can best be described as a mixture of Hip Hop, Glitch Hop, Dubstep, Trap, and Drum N Bass. It’s know for its heavy rhythmic swagger, yet at the same time can be lush and loaded with dirty synth bass sounds, warm ambiance, and 8-bit glitches.

A second stage with more performers TBA!

FRIDAY-

I was told, “Southern hospitality is best where the south meets the north and, honey, it don’t get no better than Louisville.” They were right, because the city of Louisville whole-heartedly opened its arms to embrace the Forecastle Music Festival like we were all cousins, back for a big family reunion. It turned out to be ground zero for that amazing southern charm and drawl, with a dash of weird mixed in. References to famous journalist and author Hunter S. Thompson (born in Louisville) were numerous, and his eccentric spirit has certainly rubbed off on the youth and the city. Between the food, the people and the music, I’m convinced that Forecastle is one of the best “little” music festivals around.

Before the gates opened Friday, I was on the hunt for some local grub. I wound up at Smoketown USA where I was greeted by the owner – a guy in overalls who goes by the name of “Redneck Jew”. To say the least, the guy’s a character. I said to myself, “A redneck Jew that makes BBQ? This is going to be interesting,” but I was not disappointed. They brought out a killer spread of ribs, pulled pork, greens and sweet jalapeño cornbread. Not only was the food good, but all of the furniture and art on the walls was for sale; it was a little like eating lunch at a yard sale.

Working my way through crooked streets and neighborhoods that seemed to be screaming for gentrification, I stopped in New Louisville (Nulu) to make a visit to the Louisville Beer Store. About this time, I found out my lodging for the night fell through- a common problem for out-of-town Forecastle attendees. Luckily, the crew from Country Boy Brewing was at the store to do a showcase of their beer line and, upon hearing of my bad luck, those guys and gals started making phone calls to find me a place to stay. Unfortunately, they had no luck… but they presented me with a flight of their beers, on the house, as a condolence. Although I was happier with a little beer in my belly, at this point I needed to scoot the Festival.

Black Lips Forecastle 2014

The Black Lips

The first band on my schedule for Forecastle’s opening day was the Black Lips. The Atlanta group has a new album out that was produced by Patrick Carney of the Black Keys.  I was hoping for their usual rowdy show, which they delivered with high energy and a lot of spitting.

Gary Clark Jr. Forecastle 2014

Gary Clark Jr.

As I stumbled around the grounds I made my way to Gary Clark Jr., who just won a Grammy for Best Traditional R&B Performance. This guy can tear it up with the best of them. It’s hard not to think he may have done this in a previous lifetime.

NOW Forecastle 2014

Nightmares on Wax

Nightmares on Wax came all the way from Leeds, England to smack the crowd upside the head with a live set of old school hip hop. These dudes delivered, but the crowd seemed timid; I guess they were expecting a DJ set instead. N.O.W. performing a live set doesn’t happen very often anymore, so it was a treat – even if it wasn’t what the crowd expected.

As I stood waiting to see Action Bronson, a security guard began telling the crowd that he had cancelled. The guy next to me was really pissed off. He said, “I’ve tried to see Action Bronson seven times and he’s cancelled five out of those seven.” I, too, was pretty excited to see him, but after learning of his attendance record, I might not put much effort into future opportunities to see him – which sucks for both of us.

I moved on from the vacant stage to see Spoon put on a killer set, like true professionals would. I expected nothing less from the Austin City rockers.  Unfortunately, I couldn’t stay long because the crowd was growing in anticipation of Outkast’s headlining set.

Outkast Forecastle 2014

Outkast

Outkast. What can I say? They’re legends. Their first album, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, came out came out 20 years ago. I know Louisville isn’t Atlanta, but damn they treated us like we were family. Hit after hit, they blew the crowd up. I looked up during the set to see a light mist in the sky, but I couldn’t feel anything. Body heat seemed to dissipate the spray right before it could touch the smoldering crowd. I met lots of “old school players and new school fools”. We all agreed that “ ’Kast keep it jumpin’ like kangaroos” and “I be god dammit, they done changed the rules.”

Do you guys remember Mojostock last year? Well not all of it, but no one can forget Terravita smashing their bass in your face Saturday night. Well you are in luck because they are coming back to Indy this Saturday at The Deluxe @ Old National.

Terravita is Matt Simmers (Production Engineer), Jon Spero (Mic Expert), and Chris Barlow (Mix Master). Together they are a force that has been a hard hitter in the bass scene for over ten years and counting. They have seen all the major transitions that the genre has encountered along the way.

I got the chance to have a phone conversation with Chris Barlow. I asked him a little more about the group and got some of his ideas on bass music and where it is heading. This Saturday should be an amazing show from what he was telling me.

 

Track Hound: Where did the name Terravita come from? It means living earth right?

Chris: It means earth life. We thought it was pretty cool. We are all earth life, plants are earth life, there’s a God force behind everything on the earth and it symbolizes our meaning

TH: What brought you guys together to start creating drum and bass?

Chris: Matt and I were working together DJing, producing and doing events. We were working with one MC and he showed up to a studio session hammered one day. He started telling us we sucked and didn’t know how to produce, so we got rid of him and started doing shows with Jon. Although he gets drunk pretty often he has never done that, so we are stuck with him now 10 years later. (Jon is saying in the background “Go fuck yourself”)

TH: What is your opinion of the change in bass music now versus 10 years ago?

Chris: We’ve seen in those 10 years, predominately vinyl sales and printed media, go all the way to MP3 sales exclusively, nobody really presses vinyl anymore. More people give out tracks and we are dealing with the internet which means trends can change really fast. Stuff can get really popular without a huge dollar amount invested. What’s cool about that is that fans can speak a bit more about what they like, which is nice, but also sucks because you have everyone who is a critic. Upside to it is you can be getting a lot of plays and shares and getting people to want your music, which builds your social media and makes you popular. It also makes it easier to make the music you want to make, instead of depending on A&R at a label to like it or get positive reviews from critics. It also makes it more possible to get a record store to showcase it so people will buy it. It allows us to be more creative. For instance back when we were doing Drum and Bass, you could only be between 172 and 176 BPM and it had to be a different drum and bass beat. Which is cool, we love Drum n Bass and we are writing a lot more of it now. It’s nice to have bass music cycle through dubstep (various forms), even trap, moombahton, drumstep, and glitch-hop. It’s all bass music, all in the same family and gives us more freedom musically. It lets us think outside the box with different beat structures and different BPMs. There is only so much you can do in a genre that’s been around like 7 years when you are limited to the same perimeters. It’s nice to have a change-up. Between the different trends and file sharing it creates a lot less barriers between you and the fans.

TH: On that same note, The EDM scene has seen a growth of a different genre each year the past few years starting with dubstep then drumstep then moombahton, then trap. What do you foresee being the next big thing in EDM?

Chris: It’s funny that you just mentioned a whole bunch of genres. When you think of the term EDM, none of those compare to trance and progressive house or even make a dent in EDM. EDM is festival house music. For instance, Swedish House Mafia (vocal progressive house) and Armin Van Buuren (trance). Those genres are still relatively underground. Artists who make bass music, while they are playing big crowds compared to what they were in the past, are still only playing to 2,000 – 3,000 people shows on tours. That’s still only like Slayer (metal band) size, which is still underground. Slayer is not a crossover commercial heavy metal by any means. I would say that none of those genres were the next big thing in EDM. That being said, in the more underground genres of EDM that you mentioned, I think the cool thing now is to not actually be of a certain genre. Play a little bit of everything. (Jon is saying “You have a whole artists space coming up”). When you think about an artist like Excision, you go to his show and he will play like 20 minutes of dubstep. The rest of it is electro house, drum n bass, drumstep, and 110. People play all over the place. It’s cool because artists sounds can come across in multiple genres not just one at one BPM, that’s boring. My prediction is that people will be more free and open with what they do. We will see Drum and Bass come back a little bit and the harder-edge electro House is due for a comeback as well.

TH: You guys have an electro house side project right? Hot Pink Delorean?

Chris: I wouldn’t say have, I’d say had. At this point there are no plans for Hot Pink Delorean, we are tied up with Terravita releases and touring and are booked through 2015. Not saying they will never come back, we just had to choose what group to focus on and we didn’t like the way some of the electro was going creatively. We didn’t want to swim upstream.

.

TH: How do you work together when you all can’t be together in every studio session?

Chris: Matt is the main production engineer and Jon does the vocals. We get together when we can and bend stuff around when we have too. Lately we have decided to stop touring by airplane and are doing it by ground, which allows us to all be together. It’s allowing us to do a whole new show. We’re not Djing these shows, we doing little samplers and playing from remix decks. It’s new and a little crazy but allows us to play through a lot more tracks. Right now we are playing through somewhere around 90 tracks in an hour and a half. We are also playing parts of some of those live. It allows us to do that and be together on the road while we are making music.

TH: How do you prepare for your live tours?

Chris: We get together and come up with a set. We try to incorporate what songs go where and practice. We try to incorporate music from other genres including Jimmy Hendrix etc., all different kinds.

“Never write something like “I’m a 16 year old whatever producer from wherever. This is my first song. Can you listen to it?” Don’t bother if you’re 16, wait six years and send it to me when you’re really awesome.”

 

TH: What’s your favorite and least favorite thing about being on the road?

Chris: Favorite thing – Getting to play our music in front of our fans.
Least Favorite – Driving and flying and being away from home.

It’s a pretty sweet two or three hours a night when you are playing. But when you are sitting in Holton, Kansas at a Days Inn which is the next hotel in 45 miles in both directions and all there is to eat is whatever is at the truck stop, that’s our least favorite thing about touring.

TH: If you had to give up music, what would be your go to occupation?

Chris: I have a degree in Entrepreneurship, so it would be something business related. I would probably end up somewhere in the music industry behind a desk instead of in front of the crowd. Jon would probably end up opening a restaurant or a bar. He was in the food industry for a while. I have no clue what Matt would do.

TH: We have been seeing a lot of DJ and Producer schools popping up everywhere. What is your advice for up and coming performers?

Chris: Learn how to make music and learn from as many reliable sources as possible. Never send out your music until it’s done and it’s as good as the artists that you look up to. If it’s not, then it’s going to get one listen and people are going to label you in their minds as someone they don’t need to listen too. It’s hard to shake that label. Try to find the proper channels to get people your music instead of spamming their Facebook or sending them a message on Soundcloud. The people that are worth sending your music to get so much of other peoples music that they just won’t even listen to it. You have to get it in the right hands of the right people in the right way. Make sure it’s done before you give it to them. Never write something like “I’m a 16 year old whatever producer from wherever. This is my first song. Can you listen to it?” Don’t bother if you’re 16, wait six years and send it to me when you’re really awesome. There’s no rush and everyone needs to realize that. Collect as much info as possible before even bothering to move ahead.

TH: You were the headliner for Mojostock last year. Can you share the most memorable thing about that show?

Chris: Definitely the crowd, everyone reacted to every track. We had never been there before so we didn’t know what to expect. It was great to see a nice family vibe and the promoters were professional. Sound was good and stage looked nice. We had a great time, the whole thing was great. We had a choice to stick around after we played and we chose to stay for like the whole night. You know the headliner of the festival likes it if they are kicking it by the campfire 10 beers deep by the end of the night.

TH: What super power would you have if you could only have it for 24 hours?

Chris: The ability to give myself more super powers.

Jon: Teleportation, I would be loaded. I would rob every single bank in 24 hours.

TH: What does Terrivita have in store for us in 2014?

Chris: We’ve got Rituals coming out. We are working with the metal band Born of Osiris, which should be after that. We have some collaborations with Datsik, Bassnectar, La Castlevania, Figure, J. Rabbit, Getter, and the Firepower people. We have so many of our own projects going on, it makes it hard to sit down with people, especially when you start working with something like a metal band. Going forward we are trying to take the act a little more live by the later part of 2014, adding guitars and keyboards.

TH: What can we expect February 1st here in Indy?

Chris: My birthday is February 2nd and I will probably get really drunk, so there’s that. It should be really good for Robot Pirate Monkey who is opening for us. You should expect them to really vibe it out. We are going to do our thing with our samplers. You will hear some stuff off of Rituals, you’ll hear that Datsikcollab, and a bunch of our new stuff. We are making music as we go, so you might be in store for things we haven’t played out before. We are looking forward to getting back there.

We’ll there you have it. I hope to see all of you this Saturday night. I am really eager to check out Robot Pirate Monkey and see Terravita perform in their new style. Check out some tracks from both groups below.
