The story of GODLAZER begins with a 1200cc Harley Davidson Motorcycle ride across The Sangre de Cristo Mountains, one of the longest mountain chains on Earth. There among the mysterious Colorado Mountains an idea was forged, and a sound emerged from the heavens to attract “The Ultra Culture”, the people, who get down, dance, and come together for positive impact! The GODLAZER project since its creation in spring 2009 has been a continuous journey of epic proportions lead by Colorado Native, Christopher Caligaris. GODLAZER emerged from the Boulder, Colorado Underground and has since gained momentum developing a unique Live Instrumental Dubstep Sound that melts faces off their faces. The first album release “Hydro Planet K” featured all original tracks such as “Monsters” and “Church Bells” in 2010. A year later “Full Melt” was released in April 2011 featuring all new hot fire originals, “Dank Spank” and “Jack Smith”. Armed with a 1967 Flying V Guitar, four turntables, a bass that “you could go swimming in,” and a light show to match, GODLAZER slays crowds. Recently playing with notable acts The Disco Biscuits, RJD2, and Nit Grit, the GODLAZER experience has reached rooftops, bars, clubs, venues, and festivals around the nation.
Coult-45 (aka Coulter Hoff) was raised in the mountains of Aspen, Colorado before moving to Boulder and then Denver to pursue his music career. DJing since birth, (ever seen a baby born with headphones?) he’s recently been blowing up the bass music scene in Denver as part of Sub.Mission and the Whomp Truck Crew. He’s widely known for having a precise mixing style of heavy-hitting bass tracks and maintaining a relaxed demeanor while annihilating crowds of thousands with the newest and hottest subsonic frequencies.
In the last year alone Coult-45 has shared the stage with low-end legends such as Datsik, Zeds Dead, The Killabitz, Joker, SPL, Subvader, Goth Trad, 12th Planet, Jakes, Minnesota, 6-Blocc, DJ Muggs, Finch, J-Rabbit, Reid Speed, Paul Anthony, Flux Pavillion, and Doctor P. He’s also appeared at Powellapalooza, Desert Rocks, the official after party for Ultra Music Festival in Miami, the Detroit Electronic Music Festival, and Global Dance Festival at Red Rocks. An 8-year veteran of Burning Man, it is rumored that Coult-45 has played the longest straight DJ set ever attempted on the playa in 2008, clocking in at nearly 17 hours of dubstep, drum n bass, glitch, and other midtempo.
Papa Skunk (Dan Scheidt) is a bass music producer based out of Denver, CO and a member of the Mile High Sound Movement. Growing up outside of Chicago, Dan began playing music at the age of 11 but didn’t produce electronic music until moving to Colorado for college. After spending two years defining his sound, Papa Skunk was born in late 2010. Since then, he has performed all over the country at concerts and festivals from Colorado to New York City.
Papa Skunk’s music is an evolving journey through bass music rooted in glitch hop, dubstep, house, and electro. All his releases with Tycho Records were featured genre releases on Beatport and have charted singles. Papa Skunk’s remix of Marcy Playground’s “Sex and Candy” has gone on to great success receiving 30,000 YouTube views in the first week and getting in the top 5 of Soundcloud’s “Hot Tracks.” With remixes coming out on high profile labels 1320 Records and Simplify Recordings, 2012 is looking to be a breakout year for Papa Skunk.
