Excuse me sir, But that R2 unit is in prime condition

June 20, 2014

This year’s Wanderlust, in our opinion, has the best musical line-up since 2011…remember that year? It was so good Wanderlust was almost not invited back? Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, Beats Antique, Brazilian Girls, Moby and Yard Dogs Road Show basically turned Squaw into a Phish-lot-turned-bass music festival….which is great or bad depending who you talked to. Understandably, after that year the music turned a little calmer and skewed towards a different demographic as the valley didn’t take kindly to immense bass rumbling the mountainside. This year, Wanderlust has curated a great line-up with two of the best turntablists and producers in the world indie hop hop/trip hop genre, RJD2 and DJ Krush, throwing in the musico-fused electronic experiment Big Gigantic, Thriftworks’ mindtwisting productions, the Polyphonic Spree’s euphoric choir, Bluetech’s beautiful downtempo creations, Manic Focus, Nahko and Medicine for the People and plenty more for any taste.

Whether you like music with your yoga or not, it’s apparent in many classes they go hand in hand. That feeling you get in a show when everyone is connected, vibing and dancing….it’s the same feeling you can feel in yoga classes. Everyone moving and breathing together creates that same connectedness you can feel on the dancefloor when it’s REALLY REALLY GOOD. And on top if it all…what better way to get ready your body and mind ready to play some music in front of a crowd then some yoga? In fact, a little yoga before any activity is a good idea.

We met RJD2 a few years ago….and that’s what he was doing. He was co-billing a show with The Glitch Mob and we saw him dropping into some yoga poses before his set. When he appeared on the line-up, it didn’t surprise us a bit. We’ve been following RJ’s music since the early part of the 2000’s. It’s one of the artists that is a constant in our repetoir (kind of like Ween for us).

RJD2 originally began his career in Columbus, Ohio, DJing in 1993 with a pair of turntables bought from a friend. He claims his name originates from another friend who referenced him as “rjd2” in his raps, and the name stuck. Besides being one of the best turntablists out there, his productions have placed him on numerous “Best of the Year” lists, he created the theme song for AMC’s Mad Men, a cover of Radiohead’s “Exit Music,” an entire album with acclaimed MC Aceyalone, to name a few. He released his most recent album, More Is Than Isn’t, last year (link below). A solid RJD2 album which crosses genres of disco/funk, indie hip hop, soul/r&b….basically this diversely great album can be your soundtrack to an urban and rural roadtrip or would be comfortable as Tarantino movie score. Definitely looking forward to hearing this material live…as RJD2 never disappoints live: Four turntables, two mixers and two samplers. This guy is an animal.

FB: It’s been awhile since you’ve been to our area…welcome back! I remember when you came here the first time you were wondering “Do people even know me here?” Turns out the show sold out at the Grand Sierra and a lot of people turned out for your set.

RJ: That was a great night.
FB: When we talked backstage we talked a bit about yoga and your practice. Did that play into your decision to do Wanderlust?

RJ: It was definitely a cool peripheral benefit of sorts-music is always going to be my focal point, but I’m excited to see what the whole scene is like out there!

FB: What is your yoga practice? What style(s) do you practice/prefer?

RJ: I’m actually not the most “schooled” practitioner; I basically have some moves that work for me that I have been taught, and I stick to them(when I’m being diligent. I definitely notice a difference in my daily well-being if I slack off. Being in airplanes and cars all the time doesn’t make your back too happy, you know? Maybe someday I’ll go full bore, but for now, I just do what I can.

FB: Yoga studio or at home?

RJ: Home

FB: You had also just had a child then. Still have just the one? Has your kids/fatherhood changed anything about music for you?

RJ: Yup, still just the little guy at the moment. It’s changed EVERYTHING. What my records sound like, how often I do shows, the legacy I’m going to leave behind-it recalibrates everything in your life, quite literally.

FB: Will you be have your custom video show in Wanderlust?

RJ: Hmmm-depends on what my set time is, and the technical stuff, but I hope so! (FYI his set time is 10pm on Friday!)
FB: Anyone you’d like to work with in the future?

RJ: D’angelo would be pretty great. Action Bronson, Mastodon, Chance the Rapper, many others.
FB: Who, living or dead, would be your dream to work with?

RJ: Stevie Wonder, by far.
FB: What are your go-to studio snacks?

RJ: Dried apricots and almond butter, that combo never gets old, and is a great little protein blast.

 

You can catch RJD2 at Wanderlust in Squaw Valley July 17th-20th. RJD2 performs Friday night at 10pm with DJ Krush and Nahko and Medicine for the People.  Tickets available http://wanderlustsquaw2014.sched.org/tickets.

Unleash Your Downward Dog at Wanderlust Squaw Valley

April 4, 2014
Post Image

We’re always excited for Wanderlust. It’s one of the events we most look forward to all year and lucky for us, it’s right in our backyard. So many festivals have pushed the
music as the primary draw while including yoga and wellness as a side note, but not Wanderlust! While the first few years sported heavy a musical line-up, featuring headliners such as Sharon Jones, Bassnectar, Pretty Lights, Michael Franti and The Wailers, Wanderlust has curated its own vibe by inviting yoga teachers from across the nation to teach yogis of all ability levels in the surreally beautiful Squaw Valley.

 

Caravan Palace captivates crowd at Wanderlust
Caravan Palace captivates crowd at Wanderlust

When Wanderlust was initially announced in 2009, I anticipated a very haughty-taughty crowd. Would they turn their noses up because we don’t have yoga pants, or that we didn’t know our brand of yoga mat (someone had to tell us!), or our downward dog wasn’t perfect? Turned out, that was not the case at all. Not only are the organizers great, but the yogis and music fans who come together for this event make it truly special. I began seeing a dramatic change in myself after beginning about yoga in early 2011 and I truly believe my participation in Wanderlust 2010 was important in it’s cultivation. In addition to the really nice people, organizers and instructors, the exposure to classes like  Budokan yoga, Slackline yoga, Backbends and Inversions … or even ridiculously fun classes like Seane Corn’s “Lite FM” (a class which featured all music and love songs of the 1970’s and 1980’s) has enamored us more with the practice. The diversity of classes ensure someone attending Wanderlust can be  as serious or light-hearted as they choose.

 

The music, workshops, speakers and yoga line-ups are top notch for Wanderlust 2014. DJ Krush and The Polyphonic Spree on the bill satisfy our “always have wanted to see yet haven’t” craving. Then a few of our favorites … RJD2, Big Gigantic and Thriftworks add in the “wows,” “whomps” and “what!?” In the non-musical landscape, we are looking forward to Roman Torgovitsky’s Soma System, Schuyler Grant’s Kula Flow, Eion Finn’s Blissology, ChiRunning with Steve Mackel, ELMNTL Fitness, and Yin Yoga with Liza Dousson…just to name a few! We are still reading up on all the enormous offerings Wanderlust offers.

 

Wanderlust founder Jeff Krasno answered a few questions for us about Wanderlust 2014
FB: What was the original inspiration for Wanderlust?

JK: The original inspiration came from going to Costa Rica on my wife’s (Schuyler’s) yoga retreat. There, we learned that people loved to travel, to be with like-minded community, to practice yoga in beautiful places, to eat good food, to drink a little wine and listen and dance to music. We asked ourself could we make this experience work for 4000 people instead of just 20?

FB: What could a person who practices yoga very casually receive from Wanderlust?

JK: We want to make yoga fun and accessible. Sure, we have a lot of very accomplished teachers. But many of the classes at Wanderlust are beginner / intermediate. I think the emphasis on music within the classes makes the yoga experience something that everyone can really enjoy.

FB: Your first year was a tough one! Besides bad timing of Franti’s appendix bursting, what other things did you learn that first year that has improved following years?

JK: In the first year, we ran a yoga event and music festival concurrently and, in some ways, split the audience. We learned that yoga, hiking, lectures, rafting, running formed the daytime meal of the festival and music was the nighttime desert.  

FB: Do you have any input in the music? Anyone you’ve really wanted that hasn’t been able to get on the festival?

JK: I personally booked every single act for years. Now, I defer to a younger staff that is more familiar with the cool, new acts. That being said, there are some acts that I have been working on for years. Caravan Palace was one of them. I finally made it happen last year. Fat Freddy’s Drop, a New Zealand-based dub band, is another band I’ve been chasing for years.

FB: Caravan Palace was amazing! I was very happy to see them on the line-up when it was announced. Are we back to music in the parking lot again at night or in the yoga tent? Was there any particular reason you all cut the parking lot stage out? (btw we loved the musc in the yoga tent!)

JK: The idea for 2013 model was to cluster more people in and around the village and to create a seamless nighttime experience that spanned the main tent, the tea tent and a smaller DJ stage. We like the idea that a guest can wander and discover different experience and not be confined within a tradition gated venue. We spent all this time and effort making a beautiful yoga tent and then it sat there empty at night — that didn’t make much sense.

FB: Anything you would like to add to Wanderlust?

JK: A truly next level food experience.

SABOUNCE HEAVY ON NYE IN NORTH TAHOE

December 27, 2013

 

DJ sabo DJ

“Never will we Bounce so Heavy on New Years….”

“It feels a little biased writing about a friend who you also think is an incredible dj, but I digress….”

Before the dust settled on 2012’s Black and White Superball, we had a feeling that was our last party in the Cal Neva. There had been plenty of “almost sold” rumors about this fabled, haunted establishment that we just couldn’t imagine it would be another whole year of the historic monument being up for sale. Turns out, we were correct in our assumptions (mostly); our annual North Tahoe multi-room party was sent off in style featuring acts such as Tipper, Pimps of Joytime, Fort Knox Five, Love and Light, Vokab Kompany, Sabo and tons of our friends and family.

It’s a new era and many of us are now spread out around the west coast.  An obvious decision was made to team up with our good friends and pull the party back to the one-room, one-vibe that this all started with. Granted, we didn’t have a huge selection in venues, but the Tahoe Biltmore has in the last year hosted a slew of awesome shows it seemed like a natural fit.

The combined effort of Bass Heavy, Fresh Bakin’ and The Bounce brings out a perfectly structured night of music to appease either the house head or bass head in us. We are bringing one of our favorite djs, SABO, to headline our NYE 2013: Bounce Heavy. Sabo was originally discovered by us when the moombahton genre emerged; as he was one of the originators along with Dave Nada, Matt Nordstrom (aka Nadastrom), and Munchi, to name a few. Sabo’s roots started in the skateboarding culture on the streets of NYC, where family, hip hop and the huge international community influenced his musical tastes. Currently he resides in Los Angeles, although his djing has been taking him across the US and internationally for many years. After booking him we discovered that Sabo, who is not only a master of tropical bass music, is one of the slickest, in the pocket house djs we’ve ever heard. Insanely tasteful music selection coupled with impeccable mixing has made this an easy choice for slots at last year’s Black and White Superball, 2013’s Bounce and NYE 2013: Bounce Heavy.

We asked Sabo some questions that he graciously responded to after shopping with his mom:

 

FB: You’ve been doing this awhile, did you set any specific goals that you’ve reached? Any particular goal you are still striving for?

SABO: I always set goals for myself both big and small, and many I have achieved already such as DJing in Brazil, DJing Fusion festival in Germany, playing the Robot Heart bus at Burning Man, and more kind of “dream Gigs” at certain clubs around the World. Right now my next big goal is to finish my album, and DJ more clubs around the world. I still haven’t been to Ibiza so that’s kind of at the top of the list for 2014 as well.


FB: Do you still buy vinyl?

SABO: Hell yea l love records!  Most of the vinyl I buy these days is for sample digging, but I still love the act of going to record shops, especially in foreign cities, and disovering new gems or bootlegs that aren’t available in digital format.


FB: What do you think has been one of the important changes you’ve seen (scene, musical, gear) in your career?

SABO: Somehow I managed to skip the whole laptop DJing thing, so the creation of playing on USB sticks really changed things for me, and gave my back a nice break from lugging vinyl around back in the day, to carrying around 3 or 4 CD books up until recently. The other major change or development which had a huge impact on me was Moombahton, and its acceptance and popularity. At a time when I was a bit lost musically, Moombahton hit, and it immediately “spoke” to me as a sound and tempo I had always wanted to explore further. It opened up so many doors for me creatively and gave me so many new ideas with music.

FB: You’re a great skater…Where is your favorite skate park in the world? Do you still get enough time for skating?

SABO: Wow, I’ve been blessed to skate so many great parks in my years, but some of the most memorable for me have been the Marseilles bowl on the beach in France, FDR in Philly, Taj Mahal in Montreal, and of course my hometown park growing up as a kid was Cheap Skates in Pennsylvania. There are so many epic parks in California though, so I’m still trying to explore and skate them all.  I try to skate at least once a week which is never enough, but my body and schedule cannot handle much more than that.

FB: Your style is described as: ‘Funky music to make you feel good’,- an irresistible, resonant, Balearic fusion that draws upon house, tropical bass, Latin, Brazilian, Afrobeat, disco, reggae, Cumbia, Dub, Miami bass, hip hop, funk, soul, and Moombahton.” Do you have a musical family or family member that turned you onto this myriad of international styles? 

SABO: Both my parents were sort of “closet” musicians, and they listened to a lot of jazz when I was growing up as a kid. My favorite part was always the long drum solos in jazz music. My Dad used to play bongos, and my Mom was in a jazz quartet in high school where she played the vibes, so I know that its in my blood. My cousins used to be super into disco in the early 80s too. I think those influences definitely helped me to want to explore more international sounds as a DJ.

 

FB: What are your go-to studio snacks to keep you moving?

SABO: Espresso, dried seaweed, and those huge boexes of mixed nuts from Costco keep me going for sure.

 

FB: Anything else you want to add?

SABO: I really hope there is some good snow on New Year’s Eve, so if anyone wants to go take some runs on the slopes with me holler! Been way too long since I snowboarded haha…Other than that thanks for all the support and cannot wait to BOUNCE into 2014 with everyone!

edIT of The Glitch Mob talks music and the age old question: Heathers or Mean Girls?

July 23, 2013
Post Image

Although Edward Ma, more commonly known as edIT of The Glitch Mob, will make a solo appearance in South Lake Tahoe, it doesn’t mean fans of the Mob should be at all worried about their forthcoming album.

“I am currently 100 percent devoted to finishing The Glitch Mob album,” Ma said in a recent interview.

After almost 10 years of performing professionally, edIT will come back full circle by delivering to fans a highly anticipated solo set at Montbleu after Phish leaves the stage on July 30th in Opal Nightclub.

But even for his upcoming solo performance, there’s a certain level of dedication he’s willing to give off for a night in Tahoe. Having played shows with the trio at festivals like Lightning in a Bottle and Lollapalooza, Ma is no stranger, or hater, of the Reno-Tahoe area.

“Emmerich’s parties always rock,” Ma said. “He knows how to connect with a crowd and make them care about his shows; a lot of promoters don’t know how to do that. Whether it be in Reno or Tahoe, I know he’s going to put on a good show.”

Having performed at SnowGlobe, I think he can safely say that. Over the years, Ma says that he’s more than impressed with where his career has gone, whether it be as a solo act or has a dedicated member of The Glitch Mob.

He began making solo albums before he ever got with the Mob, and has learned to evolve both his personal and group sound over time from just heavy bass and cool sounds, to a more focused vision of where the music is going and how it’s getting there.

“There’s a very specific, narrative message and story we’re trying to deliver,” Ma said.

The responsibilities for edIT are stacking up as he approaches the completion of the Mob’s new album, which will be released this fall, but he loves what he does and said he wouldn’t have it any other way. Even through the excitement of playing solo next week, he hopes to have The Glitch Mob make an appearance as a group eventually in the Reno/Tahoe area.

“Honestly the biggest achievement is knowing that I have touched people in a positive way through music,” Ma said. “You can’t put a dollar on that.”

Ed’s connection with his fans has given us the opportunity to solicit some lingering questions from the community.

Fresh Bakin’: Geek question – what is your favorite piece of hardware (for both live shows and producing) and why?

edIT: Live Shows: Jazz Mutant Lemur. It lets me build my own custom control surface which is amazing.

 Production: Voxengo SPAN Plus. Critical for keeping mixes balanced in an untreated room.

 Fresh Bakin’: What is your pre/post-show activity? How do you get amped up, and what do you do to chill out afterwards?

 edIT: Pre Show: mandatory powernap

Post show: video games back in my hotel room

Fan Ryan Kandell: Do you make your glitches with a program like stutter edit or tornado or do you do them all one at a time?

 edIT: Everything on Crying Over Pros and Air Raid was done by editing audio. I have used BT’s Stutter Edit, but mostly for transitions. It’s a great plugin. We bought Tornado, messed around with it for a few hours and haven’t used it since.

Fresh Bakin’:  You don’t play solo much…what can people expect?

edIT: I’m gonna try to hit all of the bases. A little Crying Over Pros, a little Air Raid Material, a little Glitch Mob and some unreleased stuff.

 Fresh Bakin’: Which character do you relate most to in “Zoolander?”

 edIT: Probably Mugatu.

 Fresh Bakin’: Heathers or Mean Girls?

 edIT: Heathers was all the rage with the girls when I was growing up.

 Fresh Bakin’: What advice do you have for someone starting out?

 edIT: Tell your story. Don’t sweat the haters. Practice makes perfect.

 edIT will play at Montbleu in South Lake Tahoe on July 30 at the official a.PHertparty with SubTropixx, Irieyes, Coop da Loop, and S1nth3sys. Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door and going fast! 21+, doors and music at 11 p.m.

Like sands through the hourglass, so is the Yoga of Bass…

April 5, 2013

 

Yoga of Bass w/ FreQ Nasty and Claire Thompson May 19th at The Studio Reno

We are really, really excited about this event. I started doing yoga very frequently starting in January, 2012. Literally four to six days per week I find myself breathing, stretching, (at times) sweating, falling over, and oftentimes, as I am known for in classes, the guy who falls asleep during the final pose (corpse pose). Yes…I have literally fallen asleep and gone elsewhere, waking up as everyone is leaving….this isn’t uncommon either. I am “that guy.”

Practicing yoga regularly was probably the most positive lifestyle change I have ever made. Due to the frantic pace of life and work, which mostly takes place in home, having that 60 to 90 minutes where I get to totally clear my mind of everything is necessary. Everyone doing yoga together can really bring me to that IT place…like at a show when the performer(s) and crowd are totally connected and locked in together. The way I feel after yoga sometimes is like how when I walk out of an awesome show.

I met FreQ Nasty (Darin) when I booked him (as a huge fan) to perform with Bassnectar in 2008 or 2009. He is one of the most intelligent, kind and gentle souls I’ve met in the business (and life). Claire Thompson I met around 2010 through him and I can say about the same for her. Since I first heard about their Yoga of Bass I’ve been interested, but it didn’t feel right as at that time I wasn’t on that path…but now as my universe has overlapped with theirs. I’m really excited to help promote this as my favorite things are music, yoga, food, connecting with people, finding IT and sunshine.

Black and White Superball For Immediate Release North Lake Tahoe PRESS The Bounce Uncategorized

6th Annual Black and White Superball

November 20, 2012
Fresh Bakin’ and The Bounce present the Sixth Annual Black and White Super Ball in Crystal Bay, Nevada
The Cal Neva Resort to host multiple international and local music acts, including Tipper, Pimps of Joytime, and Fort Knox Five for North Lake Tahoe’s biggest New Year’s Eve event tradition.Fans of Fresh Bakin’ events, The Bounce Festival, and Bounce-O-Ween should already have their calendars marked for the Sixth Annual Black and White Superball at the Cal Neva Resort in Crystal Bay, Nevada this New Year’s Eve. Featuring styles ranging from heavy bass to funky grooves, eighteen musical acts are set to perform on three different stages, including international superstars Tipper, The Pimps of Joytime, and Fort Knox Five. Also included in this year’s lineup are West Coast and local favorites Love and Light, Vokab Kompany, Zeb Early, Coop Da Loop, Micah J, Bim Tim, and Motorhome.“We’re very excited that the Cal Neva is not only hosting us, but letting us have a complete musical take-over of the resort,” says Fresh Bakin’ producer Steve Emmerich. “It’s only here at this unique venue that we can bring you multiple rooms of dynamic music under one roof. Just like our Bounce Festival, we are bringing together acts and regional production teams that give this event an all out community and festival feel.”Headlining the evening is British composer and producer TIPPER, world renowned for performing from his extensive catalog of unreleased breakbeats, hip-hop, and glitch music while scratching his own sounds live. Also at the top of the bill is Brooklyn based, five-piece funk band THE PIMPS OF JOYTIME, who fuse infectious groove lines, afrobeats, salsa, rock and roll, and electronic music to create unforgettable music that fast-forwards a seventies sound into the new millennium. Additionally, DC based FORT KNOX FIVE, a leading force in the international funk and breaks scene will once again bring their fusion funk, reggae, hip hop beats and breaks to ring in the New Year.

Adding to the intensely diverse musical line-up are local favorites LOVE AND LIGHT, who will perform original glitch-hop, dubstep, and “lazer-crunk” electronica from their chart topping albums Galactic Booty Activation and Level Up, and live act VOKAB KOMPANY, a seven piece hip hop act from San Diego known for their collaborations with the likes of Cage the Elephant, Wu Tang, and Random Rab.

The Bounce, Fresh Bakin’s production partner, has assembled teams that will transform this classic venue into an ethereal journey, winding through elevated black and white spectacles, and guiding each participant freely through the changing of the calendar into 2013. Highlights include the metamorphosis of the hotel lobby into a vibrant dance area with Bounce staging and Second Dawn Lighting, music thumping away with local Meyer masters, Soulstice Sound. Also, Double D Productions, Rage Stage, Wobble Factory, and  Lite Brite Productions are on deck to execute extraordinary sound and lighting stage production.

Fresh Bakin’ has made certain that whatever your musical leanings, the Black and White Superball will be the New Year’s gathering to get the Tahoe masses dancing.
