This event is 21 and over
By blending adventurous improvisation with tight compositions, ASTRO TRIO (formerly Astronomix) is able to craft unique sets that are never the same twice. Familiar themes, original songs and memorable melodies are dismantled and reorganized on the spot, creating a musical jigsaw puzzle full ripe with expressive virtuosity and mind bending improvisation.
An arsenal of exciting compositions, a knack for improvisation, and a fun stage presence make Astro Trio a spectacle to be witnessed and an experience to be shared.
Charles Buckley, aka Charles B, hails from Richmond, Virginia but took the high road to Denver some years back. When Charles strays away from his nine to five, he is stirring a frenzy on Ableton for his next show around the Centennial State.
MantaRay has developed his own blend of original Space Junk w the release of the Space Cadet EP to close out 2012. Shifting gears to focusing on Deep House and NuDisco twenty-thirteen has been careening along at light speed for this shooting star with opening slots for Tropicool, Christian Martin, Plastic Plates, Worthy,The Polish Ambassador, Signal Path, Abakus, Penguin Prison, as well as playing to a crowd of over 1000 at Denver's Ogden Theatre to culminate a 3 night tour with Conspirator.
Mixes are created using the S4 and countless hours of editing & re-editing tracks to give MantaRay sets a signature flair as almost every track mixed is a edit/re-edit of the original version. Using the S4 over Cdj's allows MantaRay to play these edits live turning the turntables into more of a musical instrument than an interface.Striving to create a constant mix, MantaRay is a mash up master creating 3 and 4 track mixes in the height of his sets! Expanding his horizons with the formation of the group Space Race, residency with Denver Disco, & an hour set at Electric Forest Festival the future is bright for this starchild.
