This event is all ages
Dirt Monkey, aka Patrick Megeath, has carved his uplifting, bouncy, and unique sounds within the Denver, Colorado dubstep scene and has gained international acknowledgement with his punchy and playful sound design. His tracks have gained support and captivated audiences via many pioneers, such as: Skream, Benga, Rusko, Datsik, Excision, A-Trak, Virtual Riot, Anna Lunoe, Annie Nightingale (BBC Radio 1), Downlink, Ganja White Night, and Protohype. Dirt Monkey’s Remix of Rusko’s “Woo Boost” has recently hit the world by storm, was released on Subcarbon Records, and to top it all off, is supported by the don himself, Rusko. Although this eclectic music junky enjoys a wide-variety of music, he has gravitated towards the trippy, crisp sounds of IDM and the wonky, high-energy sounds of old school dubstep and strives to fuse the two together.
He has worked with a wide-variety of artists including: DMVU, Space Jesus, Illenium, Party Wave, Run DMT, AMP Live, and Jantsen. Dirt Monkey has performed at a countless number of breathtaking venues, including Red Rocks Amphitheatre, clubs in France, and Beta Nightclub in Denver, CO (where he has held a residency for the last 5 years). Also, for the past four years, he established and ran the record label, Kairos Audio, with the help of co-founder, Jantsen.
In the future, expect this virtuoso to continue carving a niche that does not exist yet in the music scene and stay on the look out for a 5-song EP coming out in Spring 2017 on one of the most reputable labels in the world. Although, Dirt Monkey is extremely versatile to say the least, his true wobbly greatness will continue a movement within clubs, both boutique and world-class venues, and the colorful festival scene.
Methodically flooding the airwaves with sonically justified precision,
the man behind the moniker DMVU stands at the decks of an unstoppable
persona defined by unmistakable ingenuity. Calling Denver, Colorado home,
his innovation laden sounds claim a constant state of bewilderment, leaving
no question to his intrinsic skill as he deepens his groove as a major player
in an international circuit. With tracks circulating across seas and finding
their way into the playlists of names like Noisia and Boombox Cartel,
he continues to receive praise from some of the top names in bass music.
Recently releasing a full Hip Hop EP with Ill Chill, the producer’s reaches seem
to have no limits, nurturing a rapidly growing fan base with tastes just as large as
his productions. Seeing collaborations with the likes of Emancipator and playing
well matched alongside leading figures Hudson Mohawke and Truth, his involvement
with respected labels Encrypted Audio and Deep Dark and Dangerous fuel an uncontainable
flame. Proliferating an impressive lineage of releases, his most recent addition,
the ‘BLOCCD’ EP on Deep Dark and Dangerous stands as a true testament to a
diversely adept artist’s deserved place as a gate-pushing contender within today’s
expansive music scene. Prepared or not, the best from DMVU is coming for us when
we least expect it.
SubDocta is known for throwing down his own brand of dubstep, trap, and hybrid styles too odd for the typical nightclub scene. His eclectic taste and production skills have landed him performances at festivals and shows throughout the west and beyond including Lucidity, The Bounce, Emissions Bass Culture, Enchanted Forest, The Untz, StillDream, The Pirate Party, and Bass Camp multiple years in a row. With releases on labels such as MalLabel and ShadowtrixMusic, plus with Bassnectar supporting his songs, he has proven himself worthy of our ever-growing scene. Look forward to forthcoming singles, EPs and heavy festival/touring performances in 2018; SubDocta is on his way up.
