You can always tell when you’re listening to Denver EDM. It’s rough take on the mid-fi production with distant vocal samples is so distinct from the numerous other cities experimenting with the same thing. Listen to Lockbox, (older) Pictureplane, Alphabets, etc. It’s clear it is all coming from the same place. Ron Cole of Hollagramz has been kicking around Denver for a while now, and he’s another one of the big names arising from the city’s Rhinoceropolis venue/collective. Self-described as “Atlantean Techno,” the self-titled debut from this Western American producer will surely be another notch on the belt of Denver dance music.
Listen to the first track, “Corundum,” below, and buy the LP (limited to 300 copies) from Small Plates Records.
