Conspirator is the 2004 experimental project gone viral of duo Aron Magner and Marc Brownstein of the Disco Biscuits; with the addition of Chris Michetti (of RAQ) and KJ Sawka (of Pendulum) in 2012 the project saw a massive influx of diehard fans and the 2011-2012 festival tour had them destroying the mainstage at some of the largest festivals in the nation including Ultra Music Festival, Electric Forest, Nocturnal Festival, Bonnaroo, Summer Camp, and Starscape. Conspirator very quickly became one the festival scene’s most well liked and well known live acts as their hard hitting dubstep rhythms combined with live instruments and a near-blinding lighting production quickly became a crowd favorite everywhere they went.
Starting with the release of their first album, “Unlocked – Live from the Georgia Theatre” in April of 2012, Conspirator has continued to rise into EDM stardom and the release of the EP, “Unleashed” in early 2013 has been met with much critical acclaim. In just a few weeks after it’s release, “Unleashed” was #4 most downloaded album on the Itunes electronic music charts.
The four members of the band pride themselves in creating unique, heavy, dance floor shaking sounds using almost purely live instruments. They refuse to restrict the band to any single genre or subgenre of electronic music, instead they allow their diverse musical backgrounds and experiences to lead them into a new and unprecedented live experience that no single DJ has been able to reproduce. They acknowledge that their sound is evolving, and will continue to do so as they create new material this summer. The band strives to produce music even while on tour, and we are so excited to see what they have for us in 2014.
Conspirator will be in Minneapolis at Mill City Nights this coming Saturday the 18th! We’re stoked to hear some of their newest music, and to catch just a little of the festie feels to get us ready for SummerSet 2014!
