Calvin Hobbes is the high energy musical incarnation of the 19 year old Colorado based producer Calvin Hobbes Bartmess. Since writing his own symphony at the age of 11 he’s been inspired by the innovative growth of music across every genre. Within a short period of time and an undying love for creation, he realized his efficiency on a keyboard and guitar was not enough so he took to producing at 17.
Spending his days known as the kid attached to his laptop set the pace well for his launch into the bass music community with his Trap and Bass release, “Pilot” and his debut EP “Just Begun”. Celebrating this release he played his first show ever in Denver, Colorado for a packed out crowd of over 500 who demanded an encore. His relentless background in throwing parties in his hometown paved the way for a high energy crowd that took extremely well to his high energy productions and stage presence.
This opened many doors for Calvin as shortly after he was named in YourEDM’s top artists to watch in 2016, and released his hit EDM.com single, “Alice” which was classified by Pandora as “IDM’ or “Intelligent Dance Music” due to it’s sheer complexity. With that momentum he’s performed back to back with Herobust, directly supported Grabbitz, Run DMT, Minnesota, Prismo, Stooki Sound, and headlined his very own US tour spanning across 9 states and ending with a packed out show in Colorado Springs.
Today Calvin sits on a plethora of unreleased beats that he’s described as Future Grime and continues to stay glued to his laptop looking to manifest a platform where he can share the source of energy he’s discovered within himself.
