Oakland, United States
Benji Hannus, otherwise known as Intellitard, is a bass activist constantly on the forefront of progressive weirdness. Pushing a sound that combines the upbeat gangster feel of futuristic 808 music with the complex intricacies and mutant basslines of glitch-hop, Intellitard music is filled with a diverse array of off-kilter noises and unconventional structures. A promoter, founder, and resident at both Wormhole Wednesdays in Oakland, CA and Forever Endeavor Presents, Intellitard works as much to expose the world to new groundbreaking bass music as he does to produce such music himself. With three EP releases and several compilation and blog exclusives in the past year alone, Intellitard’s music is reaching new audiences at an exponential rate. Having played a plethora of weeklies, one-offs, and such festivals as Emissions, Stilldream, Cognitive Awakening, Wood Whomp, ]the Filth of July, and all over Burning Man, Intellitard has shared the stage and bill with artists like NastyNasty, Eprom, G Jones, Bleep Bloop, Nominus, Kastle, The Widdler, Trill Murray, Sugarpill, Tha Fruitbat, Nico Luminous, Mr. Bill, Project Aspect, Unlimited Gravity, and many more. Intellitard brings a unique set to events that weaves together glitched-out bangers with next level 808 jams in a seamless fashion that transgresses all tempos and genres. After completing two thorough West Coast tours in 2014, one with Perkulat0r of Vancouver, Canada, and one with Diversa and Humpfree Lowgart, Intellitard continues to rapidly spread his unique brand of bass music to wider range of audiences. With an EP coming out on Street Ritual in late February and another release of collabs with Downsquarez coming out in March, Intellitard is starting off 2015 in proper style, securing bookings all across the West Coast and at some major early festival season favorites like Serenity Gathering in San Diego, CA and Infrasound Festival in Wisconsin. Also to look for are new Intellitard tunes coming out on the newest Gravitas, Robox Neotech, L*VATED Music, Chillage Records, and Wormhole Music Group compilations.
