Steve Blakley, aka Fury, has been a DJ and promoter in the electronic music scene for close to two decades. As a pro snowboarder in the early 1990’s, Blakley was able to put his earnings to use as a rave promoter in Denver. Never one to be just a spectator, he bought his own set of turntables and submerged himself in the hardcore techno sound. As the genre evolved, it transformed into Jungle/Drum & Bass and Blakley became known as Denver’s, “King of Jungle.”
As Fury, Blakley has kept a rigorous travel itinerary, rinsing out high profile venues from coast to coast. Despite this packed schedule, Blakley continued to expand the Denver’s growing dance music community from the event production side as well. The hugely successful Rewind and Reload event series pulled in thousands of Drum & Bass enthusiasts from all over the world, and the weekly series Breakdown Thursdays became one of the longest running electronic music nights in the nation.
Today regular Reload events continue to elevate Denver’s bass music scene, and Blakley produces a new weekly at Rolling Stone’s #1 club in the US- Beta Nightclub, entitled Gravity Fridays. In addition Fury has remained a regular at many of the nation’s biggest festivals including EDC Las Vegas, Paradiso, Global Dance Festival and Nocturnal Wonderland. As an Bassrush and Reload resident, you are sure to see him soon at an upcoming show.
Blakley is also founder of internationally acclaimed design company The Firm Graphics. The Firm was built built from the ground up and has grown to become one of the most influential design companies, particularly in the EDM scene; catering to high profile clients such as Insomniac (EDC, Beyond Wonderland), V2 Presents, USC Events, Beta Nightclub and countless others. If you’ve seen promotion for any large scale festival-style electronic music event in the past 10 years, it’s a safe bet that Steve has had a hand in its design.
Throughout his career Steve Blakely has worn many hats, but underlying it all is a fierce entrepreneurial spirit, a strong work ethic and a love for the music.
In the face of adversity, every scene needs its driving force. Just as every movement needs its pioneering leaders, every genre thrives on the efforts put forth by those with an insatiable love for the music. Through the endeavors of a select few, the drum and bass scene in America has smoothly transitioned from the dark, underground corners of the 90ʼs UK dance scene, right into our own backyards. Fallen, is one of the spearheading figureheads to thank for this.
Derek Finner, an Indiana native with a passion for drum and bass began his journey into the DJʼing community 20 years ago. With a devoted mind and a heart full of love for the music, Derek began playing events in the early Chicago rave scene. He then migrated to Los Angeles, where he found a place to stake his claim in the industry, Insomniac.
Through the years Derek would eventually launch his own drum and bass imprint, entitled “Icarus Audio.” This legendary label, co-founded by long time friend and partner Brandon Stewart(Staticalpha) would soon sign records from heavyweight artists such as State Of Mind, Maztek, Cause4Concern, Enei, Audio, A.M.C and Optiv amongst many more. Although this labelʼs output was largely-praised in the 174 community, his sights were set on expanding his career with Insomniac and pushing the boundaries of Bassrush. Fallen is now at the forefront of the drum and bass industry. In addition to launching its own record label featuring collaborations with Matrix and Futurebounds legendary Viper Recordings, Bassrush has also been awarded the title of “Best Overseas Promotor” amongst bass music giants, Let It Roll and Rampage.
Fallen wears many hats. His long standing career with Insomniac producing countless festivals paired well with being Drum and Bass talent buyer for Bassrush, head of drum and bass for Bassrush Records partnered with long time friend, Shane Armijo(Consouls), and resident dj/artist for Bassrush/Insomniac. Having performed at festivals on a national and international level such as EDC Vegas, EDC Mexico, EDC Brazil, Nocturnal Wonderland, Countdown, Funktion, Respect, and more Fallen has become known globally for his eccentric capabilities on 4 decks, his superb and exclusive track selection, and the quick and intricate mixing style only legendary entertainers such as Andy C, Friction, and Dieselboy are privy to. Prepare for a high intensity no holds barred performance of pure drum and bass destruction. Be sure to strap in and hang on…its going to be a wild ride.
Antik One was first introduced to the world of electronic music in the remote desert of Tucson, AZ in the late 90s. The ground shook with the bass, drawing him in and embedding in his soul like a nasty piece of jumping cactus. Flashing lights and the heavens above danced with him as found his second family in the rave community. Inspired by chance encounters with DJs Radar and Z-Tip during his first party that just happened to be a Moon Tribe event, Antik One set about to shape the sounds that would continue to breath life into the rave community like a mother’s womb. West Coast Drum & Bass, breaks, acid house and goa-trance would provide the soundtrack to the rest of his time in AZ. Once transplanted to Indiana, Antik found support from fellow deck warriors Seth & Mac at Evolving Records. Like many aspiring musician, Antik spent years honing his craft and developing his skills before his sound was ready for the masses. Starting in 2012 he began playing small shows around Indianapolis at The Melody Inn and The Emerson Theater. While Drum & Bass is Antik One’s passion, he has been exploring a wider variety of chilled out, flow-friendly tunes including electro-swing and the bouncier sounds of tech house and breaks. The results are mood altering, expanding ,and complimenting. The only thing they won’t do is fail to move your feet.
