After dominating the Hype Machine Charts this month with both the #1 Remix and #1 Popular Song with his lush remix of Adventure Club’s “Need Your Heart” (Ft. Kai) Minnesota isn’t quieting down anytime soon. Dancing Astronaut describes the producer and DJ as “known for his melodic productions and spanning synths…adding his chillwave dubstep vibes.”
Before Christian Bauhofer takes the stage, it’s difficult to believe that he assumes a nightly party-crushing alter ego of a DJ and producer Minnesota. With a huge grin and relaxed, friendly demeanor, the whole civilian-to-DJ process is comparable to Peter Parker-to-Spiderman in drama factor. While on his nationwide Altered States Tour this season, the fun-loving red-headed producer spins soaring synths and whomping electronic, bass-fueled tracks with ease alongside hip-hop duo Zion I, who Minnesota has collaborated with on his recent single “Float”. With such a heavy hip-hop influence, it’s no wonder Minnesota’s five-song Altered States EP marks his foray into the world of progressive electronic music with a trap and hip-hop swerve.
