Where are my Till The Break of Dawn OG's at? While the road has been long and arduous, it is paved with hard work, love and lots of bass. Even though 2020 is without question, "the year of the cancel," it hasn't diminished our love for the Denver underground. In fact, that infatuation with the scene in the bass capital is probably more intense than it's ever been. As they say, "Absence makes the heart grow fonder." That's why we're anxiously waiting to share our love for all things bass with you as soon as things regain some semblance of normality. Who is we, you ask? Well, TTBOD is by no means a small operation. These events are a collaborative labor of love between AK Productions, Quite Low Records, Revival Concepts and Bass'D Out DNVR. We are the collective. We are underground bass music.
The Till The Break Of Dawn Team
Of the members in the TTBOD collective, AK Productions is certainly the elder member. In October 2016, the underground event production company was founded by Owner Kris Denton. Shorty after, the first AK event THC: Turntable Heavyweight Champions, opens its doors to heads in the bass capital. Since then, it has quickly begun to make a name for itself in the Denver underground, during its brief immersion into this bass experiment. Fast-forward to 2019 and AK is comfortably settling into its own little niche, becoming a leader in late night bass offerings. Certainly, if you haven't been to an AK party yet, you're missing out on the vibes of a serious movement.
Back when AK productions is still in its infancy, there are few that truly believe in the message and the mission. On the other hand, there are others that fully buy-in, and never let the dream fade. Suffice to say, Josh Wolf aka Shua never fails to let his intentions be known when it comes to bringing the bass to your ears. Without question, he was a major impetus behind the rise of AK and a flash-point for the spark which ignites the development of the TTBOD collective. Equally important, he is the boss behind the label which is responsible for some of 2019's heaviest releases from artists like Fonzie, saltee, ERG, and Beats.Me - Quite Low Records.
The most underappreciated and never overrated member of the collective is Ariana Cvencek. You're probably more familiar with her brand, Revival Concepts. If you've ever seen any AK, QL or BOD merch, at all- It's because of her. Additionally, RC has done consignment work for popular Denver underground artists KSUHDILLA and Queen Beats. Unsurprisingly, some of the dopest organizations in the bass capital look to her to help take their brand awareness to the next level. After a chance meeting and eventual romance with Josh at THC, her induction to the collective was all but solidified. Since then, she's been the primary force behind the AK/QL merchandise and brand awareness expansion.
Bringing the consortium full circle is Bass'D Out DNVR. Initially, the underground media outlet's primary function is as a marketing arm for AK Productions. Subsequently, following a motivational spark from Shua (of course) owner/operator Aaron Melton decides to ramp up his offerings to the bass music community with a comprehensive cultivation of the Denver underground music scene and beyond. The BOD archives now contain copious amounts of bass music history and the additions continue to stack up. No doubt, if it concerns the bass capital, BOD is on top of it.
As you can see, the Till The Break Of Dawn event series definitely didn't happen overnight. But that's OK because we're not in it for the glamour. We do this because we love our scene! Furthermore, we do this for YOU, the bass music community. We wouldn't be here without you, and we love and appreciate all of your support! With that in mind, please like, follow and share our brands, so we can continue to spread these vibes. Don't do it for us - Do it for the love of bass.
