The snowy mountains of Colorado often manufacture talented artists, but The Digital Connection stands out even in Denver’s extravagant music scene. Relying on his rich musical cultivation, Ricky Shine produces a voluminous span of electronic music. A virtuoso of melodic bass music (dubstep / glitch-hop / drum ‘n bass), Ricky can also shift seamlessly to constructing beautiful, downtempo tunes that evolve like a watercolored landscape. With a compelling tour history across the USA and progressively more noteworthy collaborations, this young musician seems to only be limited by the speed of sound itself.
"Gravitas now proudly present Colorado based producers “Ricky aka The Digital Connections” third release “A Clean Slate”. Unlike Ricky’s last two albums “Center of Gravity” & “Stasis”, this release explores a deeper & mellow soundscape that showcases the producers versatile approach to electronic music composition, Ricky still although manages to maintains his core sonic influences without any compromise."-- Dekompress
"Straight outta Austin by way of SXSW, and HOT off the release of his new album, "A Clean Slate", Colorado's The Digital Connection is teaming up with Humpfree LowGart to storm up and down the West Coast on their "The Rebel Alliance Tour"."-- The Untz
"Partnering up with Gravitas Recordings, The Digital Connection has given us 10 tracks of solid and yet varied content to really sink our teeth into. The tempo’s vary from low to caustic, the bass varies from sexy to chest pounding, but the vibe is groovin’ all the way through. What more can you ask for for your 45 minutes of goodness."-- The Waxhole
