Artist BiographyFall 2018The man named after the land of 10,000 lakes (thats Minnesota, if you didnt know) has been a force on the bass scene for nearly a decade. Prominent original tracks like Push It, HiLow, Float, and Thunderdome are dependable festival favorites and crush the dancefloor time and again.Although hes made a name for himself in the electronic music space,Minnesotas (akaChristian Bauhofer) musical journey started with heavy doses of classic rock. He was heavily influenced by the psychedelic style of rock legends including Pink Floyd and Led Zeppelin and cites them as inspiration for what would become his own sound.College is supposed to be a time of growth and exploration and this was no exception for Christian. It was during his college years after he moved from Minnesota to Santa Cruz, California that he first discovered the underground electronic music scene via renegade parties that would be thrown in the redwoods of Santa Cruz.That community / subculture was really my main introduction intothe music. Different crews would bring out a generator with CDJs and play music until the sun rose. We were really blown away.Christian would soon throw his own shows in Santa Cruz to provide himself with a forum to DJ.I wanted to DJ but nobody knew who I was, so myself and a core group of friends began throwing our own parties. We were very lucky to get into it the space before everything blew up,he adds.First Santa Cruz, now the world. Minnesotas rise has been steady and impressive; To coincidewith the launch of his new record labelOuter Realms, Minnesota will be embarking on his biggest tour yet. DubbedAdventures Through Space And Time,the tour will see Minnesota and his pals Charlesthefirst, Zeke beats, Esseks and Pigeonhole traverse North America through 35+ dates this fall.As for what the future holds? Be on the lookout for a ton of new music in the coming months from Minnesota and a cast of talented friends to be released via Outer Realms.
