Minnesota Lights Up the Stage in Carbondale Illinois
Minnesota, the brainchild of Christian Baufer, out of Santa Cruz, California has proven to be a major contender in the EDM scene. With smooth and balanced melodies and breakdowns infused with hip hop while still tastefully incorporating heavy bass; in all the right places.
His tracks have found their way into the sets of the likes of Bassnectar and PANTyRAID. Baufer has just finished a four set run in Asheville, North Carolina and Athens, Georgia with STS9 and after opening for Gramatik at the Riviera Theatre in Chicago, Illinois.
Baufer’s busy tour schedule hasn’t interfered with him releasing new music. On the road for over a month he has still found time to release a promo mix for his new Equinox EP, which you can listen to below (we are going to embed the SC track right into the post) Minnesota is part of the increasing number of artists participating in the “free music movement” by putting all of his music for online for free public download. That means like many artists in this movement he relies primarily on touring to make money , something I find respectable.
Expect to keep seeing Minnesota on main ticket acts in the future because he is bringing in the next wave of EDM producers.
