Hustling to make his mark in Denver, Colorado's electronic music melting pot, Late Night Radio is earning the respect of fans and peers alike through prolific production, innovative experimentation, and a dogged dedication to the craft. Alex Medellin has put in his time in the industry, coming up in Texas and California, but his ascension in the Colorado scene speaks to his ability to not only create a stunning array of original tracks, but bring them to life onstage, practicing what he preaches – guided by the mantra "emotion over energy."

Medellin's background in hip-hop is crucial to his development as a producer. Unlike some of his contemporaries who came up in the dance music scene, Late Night Radio keeps his cuts funky and inventive with an unshakable commitment to soulful grooves. Even when LNR breaks into high-energy, cabinet-rattling climaxes, the emotional depth remains. His wildly popular Vinyl Restoration series of old-school mixes has rooted his sound in deep, expressive sampling that keeps him firmly grounded in the lessons of the past, while reaching forward to craft his own signature sound.

A slew of collaborations, remixes and tour dates with notable acts are propelling Medellin's vision into new territories. Late Night Radio is poised to break out of the Centennial state, spreading the love to cities coast-to-cast and beyond as the LNR vision spreads. The forthcoming tour dates will be anchored by a powerful full-length album, Far Into the Night, slated for a mid-August release.
Having recently made a surprise guest appearance performing at a sold-out Pretty Lights Red Rocks show in Denver, CO – Marvel Years (a.k.a. Cory Wythe) the up-and-coming producer out of Burlington, Vermont, is making waves within the electro-soul hip-hop scene. Gaining wide noteriety throughout EDM blogs and social media, Marvel Years is more than just a DJ/producer. He is a genius on guitar and shreds well beyond what you would expect from a guitarist his age. His blend of electronic beats and shredding soulful guitar on his original tunes and remixes creates a sound that is a unique hybrid of EDM combing glitch, retro-funk, soul, jazz and hip-hop. Often compared to Pretty Lights and GriZ, Marvel Years has smooth funky sounding music on lock, and his releases are primed and ready for you to forget your troubles and enter into a happier state of mind that are impossible not to love.

Marvel Years is working on future releases and will be dropping a number of singles and collaborations throughout the fall of 2013.

Marvel Years’ sophomore EP appropriately titled Nowhere But Up was released on April 9th through Gravitas Recordings with great success. It is available for free download, as is all Marvel Years music.

A kid with a dream, Marvel Years has the talent and the drive as he becomes a household name. Keep your eye on this fresh artist who is making big moves…. And become marveled yourself.
Starting out as a drummer, Colorado producer Paul Brandt aka Paul Basic joined a band with Derek Vincent Smith (Pretty Lights) and Michal Menert in high school before they each moved on to pursue solo production work. In fall 2011 Paul released his debut EP 'The Mirror' on Pretty Lights Music which features a gritty, nostalgic sound blending dusty samples, grainy synths, biting bass and thick drums – a combination that earned him an integral place within the PLM movement.

Paul's follow-up LP 'Transient Horizons' is a more refined delivery of his dark, heavy beats and shows a unique range of mood and musicality. The album features collaborations with Pretty Lights, Michal Menert, and Trophy Beats. Available now for free download from Pretty Lights Music.
