Konabass Productions Presents: Basement Dwellers Tour feat. Barely Alive & more!
With countless Beatport number 1’s, tens of millions of hits on Soundcloud & Youtube, collaborations with Datsik, Getter, Dodge & Fuski, Astronaut, remixes for Destroid, Zomboy, Virtual Riot, Eptic, 501 and more under their belt, few can deny that Barely Alive are one of the most exciting and fastest grow-ing bass music acts to emerge over the last 18 months. The duo from Massachusetts, USA initially made a name for themselves when they released their debut ‘Lost In The Internet’ EP through Disciple Recordings in late February 2014 to global acclaim, hitting the number one spot across four different genre charts on Beatport in just 24 hours, causing them to become an over night success. The touring soon followed with the guys also gaining regular DJ support from the likes of Skrillex, Datsik, Excision, Zomboy, Skism and Downlink (to name a few!) as well as making regular appearances on huge online music platforms such as UKF, EDM.com, Your EDM, This Song Is Sick and most recently a guest mix for the infamous BBC Radio 1. 18 months since the first release, Barely Alive has unleash their debut album last year titled ‘We Are Barely Alive’ onto the world through Disciple and have fully established themselves as a headline act.
Christian Valentin Brunn, (born 20 July 1994) better known by his stage name Virtual Riot, is a German DJ and electronic music producer. At the age of 22, he has released several albums and EPs, most notably his 2013 album, "There Goes Your Money." He was signed to the independent music label Disciple Recordings in 2014. He has had numerous Beatport chart hits including "One For All, All For One" with Razihel and "Cali Born" with Helicopter Showdown.
Other electronic music outlets, like YourEDM, have called his music "non-traditional" and "edgy," comparing him to artists like Savant.
Brunn has amassed over 225k followers on SoundCloud and is increasing rapidly, where he has released many tracks, beginning with a rock-pop piece entitled "Wake Me Up", and recently, his EP 'Throwback'. He also has exceeded 270k subscribers on YouTube where he uploads his songs, monologues and tutorials on music production. Prior to producing under the alias "Virtual Riot", Brunn produced ambient dubstep and future garage music under another alias known as Your Personal Tranquilizer. He stated in a livestream on his Twitch.tv account that his works under that alias are "somewhere on YouTube", that being the YouTube channel "stollentroll32" featuring Brunn playing piano, and making domino videos.
He has also produced several sample and preset packs for music producers, with some of his most popular packs including his 2014 self-titled sample pack on Prime Loops, and his preset packs for VSTs like Native Instruments' Massive and Xfer's Serum.
His studio mascot is a little elephant his girlfriend bought him for his 20th birthday.
On February 21 of 2017, Brunn teased his new EP, Throwback, via his official YouTube page. Unlike his Chemistry EP, which released in 2016, Throwback appears to be a literal homage/tribute to his earlier works, straying away from the riddim style and containing tracks that are reminiscent of genres he previously produced within such as melodic dubstep, electro, and drum and bass. The album was fully released for purchase on streaming platforms on February 27.
Teaming up with Barely Alive, Dwellers tour is sure to be a musical experience in itself.
