I love finding excellent artists before they blow up, and Christian Bauhofer, the man who goes by the name Minnesota, is a very talented DJ and producer out of Santa Cruz, California, who might just do so. He states in his biography that his “goal is to make bass heavy dubstep/glitch-hop music that’ll get you dancing, but is not the same old, 3 note transformer-step…. I try to focus more on the melodic side of dubstep, and hopefully, make quality song writing a more relevant factor in the genre.” He is certainly becoming that relevant factor he strives for and has already had a great deal of success being been billed with some of the best producers in the business including Flying Lotus, Rusko, Benny Benassi, Ghostland Observatory, RJD2, Datsik, Excision, Skrillex and many more. He has even sold out the famous venue in Santa Cruz, the Catalyst, and he will undoubtedly sell out many other venues to come. I recommend you take these two awesome tracks that he was nice enough to give away for free on his soundcloud!

There hasn’t been much quality music released lately, so big ups to Minnesota for putting this track up for download! Enjoy. […]
