Innerstate on 03-17-06

Innerstate began their musical endeavors in the late 80's, playing guitars and keyboards in the "Duran Duran / Cure / Love and Rockets / Depeche Mode" influenced era. In the early 90's, with much influence from the Manchester "britpop / shoegaze" scene and the early rave movements, they reinvented themselves as programmers and started toying around with beats. By the mid 90's, artists like The Orb, Chemical Brothers, Orbital, and Underworld drove Jason Timothy to completely drop the guitar and focus completely on electronic music, and formed an early breakbeat team with Kelly G (aka Nikkshifter). It was around this time that Jason started toying around with DJ'ing, and by 2001 ran into old friend and current partner Frank Prosnik to form "Innerstate".

Making agressive main floor stormers full of sinister stabs and sweeping melodies on one end, and beautiful uplifting, hypnotic and techy chuggers on the other end, Innerstate takes influence from the likes of Pink Floyd, Tangerine Dream, Sigur Ros, The Pixies, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, along with the more obvious progressive, techno, tribal, tech house and trance influences.

Innerstate supporters have spanned top artists including Hernan Cattaneo, John Digweed, Nick Warren and Jody Wisternof (Way Out West), Taylor, D:fuse, Tigerhook, and the Low End Specialists.

Kris Nilsson is one of the fastest growing house DJs in Las Vegas since moving there in 2002 from Colorado. Growing up in the small town Breckenridge, Kris never really was introduced to night life. That was until he took a job as head sound engineer on a tour that took him to Europe. Being in a new place with new people was such a amazing experience, until he discovered the club world. Kris was stopped in his tracks at the first club he attended. Judge Jules was spinning while two thousand dancing screaming fans were getting there groove on. For the next year Kris studied and learned how such a great energy and sound could be created by putting two records together. After about a year the tour ended and it was time for Kris to come home. The first thing he did when he got back was a set of turntables. In the summer of 2002 Kris moved to Las Vegas, he began his career as a DJ about eight months after when he was asked to cover a weekend at a club called Curve in the Aladdin Hotel, Las Vegas. Shortly after Kris was offered a Friday and Saturday residency at Curve. He started playing at local clubs all over Vegas & building a bigger fan base after each set. Over the next couple of years Kris has had several resident DJ spots, Curve at the Aladdin Hotel, Tangerine nightclub in Treasure Island, RA Sushi in the Fashion Show Mall, and Drai’s after hours in the Barbary Cost.
