Mountblood. It’s one of those names that catches your eye, and rightfully so. The mysterious alias of Texas born producer Steven Anthony Molina, Mountblood is the latest of a handful of talented young producers to push the boundaries of 21st century technology, experimenting with elements of house and electro to produce a mash-up of hectic, rebellious street beats that are a truly genre of their own.
A relative youngster on the scene, Mountblood has already made a name for himself amongst an A-list roster of colleagues, playing alongside Das Racist, Bloc Party, Dillon Francis,Zedd, Skrillex, 12th Planet, Neon Indian, & Bart B more, to name a few. In 2011, he had the honor of gracing the stage during the Dallas installment of the US’s premiere EDM festival, Electric Daisy Carnival.
2012 will see the release of his first artist album, a pyschadelic, thrashy meelee that takes you on a sonic journey through a hectic mileau of extended bass lines, melodic guitar riffs and Shoegaze influenced leads. It’s the kind of sound that works as well inside the clubs as it does out, a sound that offers up a little bit of significance for everyone. A sound that escapes definition, as much it as it defines a generation.
