MINNESOTA
MINNESOTA
of
EDM
but
holds
onto
origins
of
dubstep
and
hip-­‐hop,
creating
a
truly
authentic
experience
for
his
audience.
Early
on
in
his
career
Minnesota
said,
"My
goal
is
to
make
bass
heavy
dubstep/glitch-­‐hop
music
that'll
get
you
dancing,
but
it
is
not
the
same
old
three
note
transformer
step…
I
try
to
focus
more
on
the
melodic
side
of
dubstep,
and
hopefully,
make
quality
songwriting
a
more
relevant
factor
in
the
genre."
For
the
past
four
years
Minnesota
has
followed
through
on
his
word
and
designed
smooth,
melodic,
uplifting
sounds,
which
fans
have
celebrated
nationwide.
Originally
from
Minneapolis,
MN,
Christian
Bauhofer
moved
to
Santa
Cruz,
CA
when
he
was
18
years
old.
Fresh
out
of
the
Midwest,
his
newfound
California
friends
gave
him
the
nickname
'Minnesota,'
and
unknowingly
created
his
soon-­‐to-­‐be
party
crushing
alter
ego.
He
learned
the
guitar
at
age
12
and
made
numerous
attempts
to
form
a
band,
but
it
wasn't
until
he
attended
Symbiosis
Gathering
for
the
first
time
in
2009
that
his
career
in
music
became
clear.
The
festival
drew
him
into
the
emerging
EDM
culture
with
performances
by
Bassnectar,
Pretty
Lights
and
the
Glitch
Mob.
Shortly
after
Symbiosis,
Minnesota
purchased
Ableton
Live
and
his
first
midi
controller,
and
within
a
few
months
was
making
hip-­‐hop
remixes
that
his
friends
couldn't
stop
playing.
Around
the
same
time,
Minnesota
teamed
up
with
a
couple
friends
and
started
a
production
company
called
Vital
SC
(now
Vital
Events).
The
company
had
a
successful
start,
hosting
a
string
shows
around
the
Bay
Area
with
big
name
artists.
But
Minnesota
eventually
split
off
from
the
promoting
side
of
the
industry
in
pursuit
of
his
musical
career—and
today
he
couldn't
be
happier
with
his
decision.
Minnesota's
first
EP,
Panda
Snatching
Tycoon,
came
out
on
Tycho
Records
in
January
2011.
It
received
critical
acclaim
from
a
national
audience,
prompting
Minnesota
to
drop
his
second
official
album,
Ancient
Machines,
just
months
after.
Released
on
Mal
Label,
Ancient
Machines
hit
number
nine
on
the
Addictech.com
best
seller's
list
for
2011
and
every
track
appeared
on
the
Beatport.com
glitch-­‐hop
charts.
During
this
time,
Minnesota
also
managed
to
put
out
a
free
EP
with
MartyParty
called
Ultraviolet
Halo
that
was
released
in
July
2011.
His
fourth
EP,
Astral
Projection,
came
out
the
following
year
and
showcased
his
affinity
for
downtempo
melodic
ethereal
sounds,
which
diversified
his
fan-­‐base
through
hits
like
"Stardust,"
and
"Relax."
Minnesota's
fifth
album,
Altered
States
EP,
has
since
been
his
most
popular
with
tracks
being
played
by
DJs
across
the
country.
He
describes
the
album
as,
"big
room,
melodic
bangers,"
with
some,
"faster
tempo
hip
hop
influenced
stuff
on
it."
Minnesota's
most
recent
release
Voyager
EP
resonates
as
a
culmination
of
these
projects,
balancing
his
identifiable
melodic
synths
with
the
bounce
of
808's.
The
album,
fine-­‐tuned
with
experience
and
precision,
plays
naturally
in
the
evolution
of
Minnesota's
signature
sound.
Now
in
his
fourth
year
of
touring,
Minnesota
has
traveled
to
over
50
cities
and
performed
at
nearly
every
major
festival
nationwide.
Last
year
he
headlined
his
first
two
tours,
and
performed
with
the
likes
of
STS9,
Big
Gigantic,
MiMOSA
and
Gramatik.
His
music
has
been
lauded
by
the
likes
of
Bassnectar,
Adventure
Club,
Paper
Diamond
and
many
others
in
his
genre.
Discussing
Minnesota's
track
"Push
It,"
Bassnectar
once
commented,
"[It's]
quickly
becoming
a
staple
in
my
sets,"
and
"perfect
for
when
I
need
a
track
that
is
epic
and
churning
but
also
melodically
hyped."
The
support
of
Minnesota's
management
team,
agency,
and
some
of
the
world's
greatest
artists
can
only
attribute
to
his
hunger
for
more
time
spent
on
the
road
and
in
the
studio.
To
those
that
haven't
had
the
opportunity
to
see
Minnesota
perform,
make
sure
to
be
on
the
lookout
for
the
next
time
he
rolls
into
your
city.
To
put
it
lightly,
Minnesota
is
a
name
to
watch.

ill.Gates

Luzcid
Luzcid's music is a sonic odyssey. A series of auditory adventures in which the participants completely escape time and space. He meticulously eludes genres in order to welcome a variety of enthusiasts to gather and celebrate the rewards of community. Luzcid hopes music can become platform in which the peoples of the world can reconnect and begin to restore our home to a place in which we all enjoy living.

He has already performed in almost every major US city and continues to spread his wings across the music community.Although his production stands proudly on its own ,Luzcid has proven he is one of those acts you need to experience live to get the full picture. He uses ableton live to weld a sonic quilt of sensationally hefty hip-hoppy psychedelic bass music.

His song with Bassnectar "Science Fiction" is a splendid illustration of Luzcid's ability to collaborate and conceive a fierce beauty with one of EDM's most revered artists.
Illanthropy
illanthropy, known off the stage as Stephen Blasy, is an Asheville, NC-based producer with more than his own agenda in mind. Several years into his DJ production pursuits, he decided that his live performances should be more than just a show that hypes up the crowd, makes the floor bounce, and is forgotten the next day. He blends big bass sounds, clear, ethereal melodies, and conscious thoughts in his production, working to inspire his crowd not only to dance, but to also try and expand their minds in a way that positively and significantly impacts their environment.
