Digital Beat Down
Digital Beat Down is a live electronica duo that fuses synthetic
textures and organic instrumentation to create dance friendly
compositions with a prog-rock twist. The distinctive feature of
Digital Beat Down is their ability to draw on the ethos of the DJ
culture while still providing the intangible live band experience. The
duo thrives on creating carefully crafted songs and multi-layered live
looping jams that invite the listener on a psychetronic journey
through the depths of dirty Drum & Bass, to smooth Deep House, to
Crackin' Breaks, or finished off by their bone penetrating brand of
sub bass driven Dub-Step funk.
The duo was formed in Denver, CO in the fall of 2008, by Andrew Lubner
on (drums and samples) and Nick Pilz on (synths, samples and loops).
Digital Beat Down is a high energy attack. Lubner mounts a relentless
assault on the drums and sampler pad, and Pilz thumps the low end
while he warps and weaves the dark melodies and subtle textures that
define the band. In their first year, Digital Beat Down broke in to
the Denver/Boulder scene and successfully toured throughout Oklahoma,
Arkansas, Illinois, and Wisconsin. With explosive live shows and a
tenacious drive, the band is poised to explode on to the national
scene and beyond.
Fun Music for Good Times
Born in Wilson, North Carolina, Pruitt Poythress moved to Wilmington in 2004. Passionate about his music, he made his start while DJing a house party, and was offered a job by the promoter of Sputnik, formerly The Penthouse, nightclub. Thus began his reign as PRUITT with a promotion to head DJ of the most popular college night in Wilmington. He has since performed at nightclubs across the UNITED STATES from North Carolina to California. From winning the largest silent disco battle in the United States in 2010, winning a Colorado-based DJ competition in 2011, to winning the EMP Audio competition held in 2012, PRUITT has performed coast to coast. He has spent some time on the west coast headlining San Francisco's 4th of July IndepenDANCE boat party aboard the "Spirit of San Francisco". He was flown to Boulder, Colorado to open for Crystal Castles and Savoy at Colorado's own EDM music festival Glowfest. He also headlined the "Road to Ultra" at the House of Blues Myrtle Beach, and has hosted many of his own events for various clothing companies. PRUITT has opened for other acts such as Wiz Khalifa, Mord Fustang, Miles Dyson, Gramatik, Hypster and DJ'ed along side of Fat Man Scoop. With an aptitude for house and electronic music, PRUITT delivers a performance that can only be explained by passion. With a big room style he transcends crowds with each song taking them to another level.
