"Tatanka is a record that manages to pay homage to its roots, deliver a couple catchy singles, as well as define Tatanka's sound as an out of the mold band that is pushing the reggae-rock genre to a new place." -Tommy Dubs, The Pier
Tatanka encapsulates the heavy roots rumble of the Caribbean, while maintaining the pop sensibilities of the dance-oriented electronic sounds from the Britannica-American reggae scenes. These sounds are what fueled the groups newest album,'Tatanka'. Written over the span of a year and a half, Tatanka recorded their self-titled album at Imperial Sound in San Diego. Reggae rocker Ted Bowne from PASSAFIRE and roots magician The Maad T-Ray of Tribal Seeds feature on a counter-culture wake up call entitled "The Yard". Jamaican sing-jay Triston Palmer is heard on a bouncy number labeled "Give Green". The tune pays homage to never giving up and believing in yourself. En Young of Tribal Seeds can also be heard throughout the album. The album debuted at #1 on the iTunes reggae charts and #4 on Billboard's reggae charts. The positive lyrics and heavy sounds garnered radio air-play all around the globe.
Tatanka's 'Sounds In Technicolor' EP has racked up over 20,000 downloads and has attributed to the flourishing fan base. This recognition has led to tours across the US and Canada with acts such as Tribal Seeds, Stick Figure, Lee Scratch Perry, Fortunate Youth, Easy Star Allstars, Passafire, and more. In conjunction with a heavy tour schedule, Tatanka has also played a multitude of festivals including California Roots, Powell-a-Palooza, Desert Rocks, Arise, and a plethora of others.
Formed in Denver Colorado by a few college friends, Tatanka has been recognized as "Breakout Artist of the Year" (2014) by The Pier, High Times "Unsigned Band of the Month" (September 2011), and nominated by Westword magazine for "Colorado's Reggae/Jam Band of the Year" (2015). With 2015 providing a large amount of clout, Tatanka will be releasing a remix album of their self-titled record as well as several new singles.
Tatanka's infectious live show is the bridge between the band and the fans. It unifies the crowd with a progressing, pulsing, and positive perspective. Tatanka is always looking to further instill a global vision of unity with their pounding, dynamic sounds and peaceful, harmonious message.
"We all go help them, People come together no selfish." - Reward Them, TATANKA
Project 432...what does that even mean??? When you first hear the name, for a second it invokes images of Area 51 in the mind, or possibly some secret government experiments the C.I.A. is conducting on some poor souls turned lab rats.
Luckily for all of US, Project 432 has a much more benevolent mission that they intend to take worldwide. This Denver based band is creating a buzz and hitting the ground running already booking shows from Austin to L.A., bringing a brand new sound carrying an explosively dynamic range of grooves & vibrations.
Mixing a variation of styles, they draw you in with their steady soothing heartbeat created by their hip hop/funk sound and the rock drive behind their drummer/bass combination. They ground you with some fresh fatty dub as well as some funky grooves that'll get your entire body moving. The guitar and vocals will take you over with resounding elements in blues, hip hop, rock and soul music, screaming in moments, crying in others, and somehow carrying that happy, slinky, snapback skanky reggae flavor we love so much. With the keys bringing out beautiful bright tones, and in moments the spacy sounds that take us to celestial places as well as more subtle sub base and dub vibrations, the beauty of this cosmic creation is something unlike anything being done, and the fascinating part is the meaning of the very name.
Why 432??? Well, long story short, everything vibrates at a certain frequency range and 432hz is the perfect and actual range at which water, life, the earth as well as all elements are whole and centered and it is how we are all connected and aligned properly. Originally music was played and listened to at 432hz, and along the line it was changed to 440hz and caused our minds to come out of alignment, our vibrational frequency, our way of thinking, our pace and our natural rhythm in life altogether.
Project 432 tunes to 432hz as well as writes a message that tells a story of the hearts of the band members as well as the many stories that we all live out in this epic journey we walk out called life. They intend to impact the hearts of the masses literally healing people's minds and spirit by causing them to contemplate, consider, reconsider, and simply rock out and love the moment they are experiencing as they listen to the healing, grooving, and enchanting sounds that realign them with life.
MountainUs is a 5 member band that fuses roots Reggae with modern Jazz and Rock formed in Fort Collins, Colorado. We create melodic music with lyrics that brings a message of peace, love and unity. Find us on instagram at MountainUs! Twitch too.
