TKO Vapor presents: the Big Cloud Contest

A few years ago when people were trying to figure out an alternative to cigarettes, vaping was born. The act of “smoking” something not as harmful as straight nicotine was appealing; think of a hookah, flavored vapors, special devices with unique add-ons that could be customized to a user’s choosing. Being in a fun and social environment and partaking in an enjoyable activity was pretty cool! It produced a whole subculture that took off around the world. You could do it with your friends, pick out a flavor, hang out in a unique and hip spot. It’s affordable, healthier than cigarettes, and hey, they even host fun events to make the experience even more enjoyable. Here in Erie, sometimes it can be difficult to find fun things to do. But this weekend in something special is going down.

The debut album “ I keep It Moving” from NatasK (814 Bass Crew) is an emotional plunge into the deep world of Electronic Music with influences from a wide variety, all expressed through Broken Beats, Bass, and Melodies that both drive a dance floor, as well as appeal to the every day listener. With deep roots in the DJ culture, spanning the last 16 years, as well as being the founding member of the 814 Bass Crew, this is one of the first looks at this up and coming producers personal take on the music that has been a big part of his life and Electronic music as a whole all while trying to create new paths and sounds to broaden the previously type casted molds of individual genres. With a range of Tempos and Speeds NatasK combines the sounds of Dubstep, Techno, Drum and Bass, Hip Hop, Trap and UK Garage to grab the listener’s attention, and feel the mood and dynamic of each track. “I keep it Moving”, features the vocals of Lake City Fresh, and Mack Boyer of Hollah House as well as Production features from Ghost Alive also of the 814 Bass Crew. The 1st official single from the Album “Lose it All” is a Carnival style Dubstep song, featuring the powerful and inspirational Lyrics and Vocals from Lake City Fresh, and explains the metaphoric rise and come up of becoming a Man in a world seemingly hopeless at times, all in time with the choice broken breaks and Pulsing Baselines. After World wide Charting Success earlier in 2014 with EP single “Manowar” feat Akuma, NatasK is ready to deliver the driving energy that is his Live performances, and His production skills to the world stage.

KEYS N KRATES…BIG THINGS!! From BASS NATION.

Over the last couple of years, STEEZ PROMO and BASS NATION have provided some of the most up front, cutting edge Bass Music Events…. and have helped to put the fans in a more up close and personal perspective of some of their favorite artists.  December 20th PITTSBURGH PA will get a hefty dose of choice Broken Beats, and Bass.

BASS NATION PITTSBURGH :   Keys N Krates   Winter Tour 2013

1463014_616122815115871_1247703427_n

 

 

 

Keys N Krates formed in 2008 out of a desire to do something different. They wanted to take the remix/electronic sound out of the studio and onto the stage, creating a new live electronica experience. The Toronto-based trio – comprised of the high-energy Adam Tune on drums, synth-master David Matisse on keys, and internationally award-winning Jr. Flo on turntables – began by locking themselves in a rehearsal room for six months to create and finesse their unique sound and identity. The result? A blend of hip-hop, electronica, and jam that truly shows off the artistry of the live remix. Keys N Krates collage raw samples and twist them with live instrumentation, creating a unique party sound. With two live off-the-floor mixtapes and a slew of official remixes under their belt, the outfit is set to release their next EP “So-Lo” on Dim Mak Records in 2013. Over the last year, KNK toured with and played alongside artists including; Pretty Lights, Lotus, Skrillex, Girl Talk, Kid Cudi, Metric, Timbaland, Zed’s Dead and more. In 2012 the band continued to make an impact on the festival scene, playing major shows at Wakarusa, Ultra Music Festival, Movement Festival, Osheaga and Sonar in Barcelona. The band also produced several hype machine chart topping remixes for Bassnectar, Adventure Club, Zeds Dead and Nelly Furtado. To really grasp what Tune, Matisse, and Jr. Flo bring to the stage, you have to see it up close. Their shows are filled with high-energy sets that are made to be witnessed live. The guys continue to craft and grow their sound and style, exposing audiences worldwide to the Keys N Krates experience.
