Plastician is a specialist in electronic music, with a bias towards bass.
Ever since he could remember, Donnie Miller has had a deep love for music. He was introduced to this love at a very early age. As a toddler, there constantly was music playing in the house. As he grew into an elementary school student, he took music classes and computer classes where he was first introduced to the music program Garage Band. He did not have the program at home, so he would stay hours after school was over in the computer laboratory, just learning the simple functions of how it worked. By age 12 he had picked up the guitar, bass, and piano. He would put on concerts for his friends and family at his house. This is when he realized that he could do something in his life with his love for music. By age 17, Donnie had become a signed musician and had released on two very reputable record labels. Every one of his releases made Top 100 charts on Beatport, and some even broke the Top 10. Now, Miller is 18 years old and is already living his dream. He is sharing the stage and talking with artists that have inspired him to write music. He even missed his high school chording ceremony because he was opening for Imagine Dragons. Sharing the stage with some of his icons and making incredible connections, Donnie is taking the Colorado Bass Music scene by storm. With support from well known talent such as The Maniac Agenda, Gummy, Fista Cuffs and more, the places he is going seem to be very bright. Currently Donnie is a proud student at the University of Colorado at Boulder and is making his music known there, while becoming a Marketing Major. Decadon's productions are both cutting edge and infectious with his usage of rock and roll influence and heavy bass, quickly gathering fame on the west coast circuit. He also has support from such music blogs as Dubstep.net, ThisSongSlaps.com, Techibeats.com, TheKollection.com, and many others. With his music and live performances already touching thousands of people, this up and coming Colorado – based musician is only getting started, and is making a name for himself in the global dance music community.
Mikey Thunder likes to party. But more than that, Mikey Thunder just so happens to be the party. Thunder spins a genre-blending, bass-driven partyrock, fusing banging electronic beats with funk, hip-hop, soul, jazz, blues, swing, reggae and anything else the party may call for on the fly. With 19 years in the game, he's mastered the art of improvisation with an uncanny ability to work with and rework the vibe of the party with precision. If you’re a true connoisseur of the Colorado music scene, you’ve seen Mikey share the stage with any number of your favorite artists- no matter the genre.
It all began for Mikey at the age of 15 when he discovered DJing in Springfield , Mass. Thru friends older brother's record collections and the Hiphop scene in the city. From there he moved up to Burlington Vt. and immersed himself in the diverse musical culture. In the fall of 1999, he relocated to the mountains of Jackson Hole where he was soon kidnapped by Michael Franti and Spearhead for the Stay Human Tour. After opening for Spearhead in Jackson Hole, Thunder was handpicked by Michael Franti to open the rest of the tour, where he mixed beats into their sets, during set break, and scratched with their beatboxer, Radioactive.
After the Spearhead tour Mikey relocated to Boulder and continued to pursue his musical career. At that time Thunder also was an Atari playing stuntman/ DJ in the band Sonar. The band shared the stage with the Wailers at the Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, the String Cheese Incident, and played Hightimes Magazine’s SXSW party, and the Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam. In the fall of 2009 Mikey joined the Pretty Lights crew, opened for over 30 shows on their tours and performed cuts on the Making Up a Changing Mind EP, released in 2010. He also has played the sold out Red Rocks Amphitheater runs with PL in 2012/13/14.
Since that time, he has made his presence known in every single facet of the Colorado music industry. Over the years he has shared the stage with an extremely diverse range of musicians, including (but certainly not limited to): Bassnectar, The Glitch Mob, The Disco Biscuits, Boombox, Soul Live, Lettuce, The Motet, Michal Menert, Nightmares on Wax, Mr. Scruff, DJ Krush, Bonobo, Z Trip, DJ Qbert, Pete Rock, DJ Premier, Jurassic 5, Slick Rick, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface killa, Red Man, Juicy J, and Big Boi of Outkast. Additionally, he has been prominently featured on such festivals as Shambhala, Sonic Bloom, Snowball, Global Dance Festival, and many others.
Mikey Thunder’s true talent lies in his versatility. Every Thunder performance presents something familiar in an entirely unfamiliar way, as well as something unfamiliar presented in a way that is immediately recognizable as Thunder.
