In its short 1.5 year of history it has made high profile appearances at Camp Bisco, Nocturnal Festival, Bass Invasion, and Snowglobe Music Festival. Its original productions and remixes have become recent playlist staples for DJs ranging from Bassnectar to MSTRKRFT to Craze to 12th Planet and beyond.

With the agenda of breaking down the genre barriers within Electronic Dance Music, the DJ/Producer duo from Monterrey, Mexico are creating a hybrid sound and style all their own, and with great success too. Boombox Cartel's music has been played all over the world from 2,000 capacity clubs to the main stages of Ultra Music Festival and TommorrowWorld.
Now with major support from acts such as Adventure Club, Bro Safari, heRobust, Brillz and more - Boombox Cartel is ready to take the world by storm.
SPL aka Sam Pool has spent the last decade taking risks and breaking the mold in electronic music. Received internationally, SPL feeds the ears and souls of bassheads worldwide. From thousands of screaming fans in St. Petersburg and Kiev arenas, to massive club nights in Holland and New Zealand, to stateside venues such as the legendary Fox Theater in Boulder, Colorado, SPL delivers with passion and musical prowess that goes beyond the current state of dance music. Because of his international experiences and influences, SPL has launched into new territories time and time again.
SPL's most recent approach forays into the depths of dub-hop infused hyper-bass music. Combining elements from the pulse of an all-night party and a healthy dose of Trap-Star Crunk, a unique and highly energetic experience emerges every time SPL gets on the decks. For those who cannot wait for a show, the same sound and intensity can be found in his recent track "Back at It" or his massive remix of Bassnectar's "Bass Head". Either way, SPL is bound to take your head on an intergalactic-bass journey, and leave you begging for more!
The Digital Connection
The Digital Connection is the musical alias of Ricky Shine. In 2008 Ricky Shine age 18, a boulder resident for life, was living in the heart of downtown Denver, where he was exposed to the vast dance music scene. Attending club Beta and other shows almost weekly, the desire to be behind the decks grew even more. With a background in playing bass guitar with several local metal and jam bands, this new found passion of "bass" music seemed like the right direction to go. The first songs were made on FL studio under the name "Stucatto" and can mostly be considered Electro House style. His friend Guam was the first person to introduce Ricky to the world of mixing. The first live DJ performance by Ricky was a house party, which was thrown by the soon to be the Got Bass Music crew in the spring of 2009.
During the summer of 09 Ricky dubbed himself the alias "The Digital Connection." The first track made under this name was an ambient track called "Waking Awareness" which featured a clip from artist Alex Grey. After a month or so of developing a new style, he was introduced to the program Ableton Live, and the ability to mix tracks using the device APC40. This opened up a whole new world of possibilities by allowing him to bring the songs to a live set. After a while Ricky started DJing house parties and personal shows for friends, which eventually turned into playing for crowds of people with Got Bass Ent. only a few months later.
The Digital Connection has performed in many small clubs and bars in the Denver and Boulder area including The Mix, Mini Bar, Diamond After Dark, The Marquis, Cervantes, and even the A-Basin resort. Recently with the self release of "The Space Man E.P, The Digital Connection has received a lot of attention from music blogs, websites, and music labels. With Ricky's passion for all kinds of music, you can expect to hear anything ranging from down tempo ambient tunes to dubstep and glitch hop bangers in his live set.
Live instruments are also being added into the mix with a live drummer as well as live bass and synth to bring out the full experience of DC's music.
