Boulder, Colorado’s Jantsen has been pushing the envelope of the bass-centric electronic music scene for several years. Jantsen draws inspiration from his elevated surroundings, bringing together the influences of electronica, jazz, blues, funk, rock, hip-hop, and every single sound in between. Like an alchemist working his elixirs, Jantsen performs precise musical chemistry, creating new bass-funk gold. His musical style looks to the horizon of the scene, progressively pushing creative boundaries, expanding upon the typical to make them abnormal. Truly, the best way to listen to Jantsen’s music is to experience it live–the energetic sound waves and contagious stage presence are what make his show one of a kind. Jantsen’s music has been on the decks of many Djs, including: Rusko, Datsik, Downlink, and Trolly Snatcha. Connect with Jantsen’s Facebook page to be updated on the latest releases and free downloads.
