This event is 21 and over

Starbass weaves dark modern bass music, 80s-alternative-inspired dance hooks and expertly-crafted songwriting with cinematic & textural sound design to generate hypnotic music that transcends genres.

Starbass is the current creative identity of DJ / producer, multi-instrumentalist, & performer, Steven Comeau. Originally from Toronto, Comeau was a successful electronic music pioneer in Canada, producing underground club hits and earning his spot on national dance charts. He now comes to you by way of Salt Lake City, his home base both for creating the original sounds of Starbass and also recording and producing music for other artists.

”Starbass is all about texture and emotion and painting a vivid cinematic soundscape. I try not to care about electronic music categories and make something that is rich with texture and detail, and is full of feeling. I aim to make music that is powerful coming out of a system at a club or a festival, but also has wonderful intimacy when it’s just you, your headphones, and your innermost thoughts.” –Steven Comeau

What People Are Saying about Starbass …

“Rips out the dark heart of electronic music, serves it on a smoldering pyre of brilliantly constructed songs. Starbass creates something new, unheard for far too long.” -Kriel, Mixmag contributing writer, London UK

“A perfect blend of noir, gothic overtones and modern bass. Stellar production and a great conceptual work from start to finish.” - Myagi - Pop and Lock Records – Canada

Rare Facture
Formed in early 2014, by singer/songwriter/producer Tom Cella and songwriter/producer David Burdick, the Salt Lake City, Utah based duo has already developed a strong following due to the band’s sonic blend of synthpop, trance and futurepop. With a focus on writing hook driven, melodic dance music, Rare Facture has received acclaim from critics and audiences. The band’s first single, “Nothing Matters” was released in July, 2014 and has received airplay in the United States, Australia and the United Kingdom. The duo followed up with a single titled “This Broken Resolution” in September of 2014, and released their first full length album Light in the Dark in June of 2015.
