[LOCAL SPOTLIGHT] Krushendo Makes Big Splash with ‘Stardust’ and Accompanying Video

by E.P Pirt, Jr.

Krushendo, a Fort Collins based producer, guitarist, keyboardist, and DJ, has been making waves across the Colorado electronic music spectrum. His latest work, “Stardust”, is an anthemic banger that is guaranteed to get a crowd moving and heads banging; but it’s more than that. It’s an inspiring and touching tribute that conveys emotion in a way that only a monumental life event can.

“The video is about my mom who had passed away two Septembers ago, and somehow is the reason I have been lucky enough to play events like Summer Camp. The concept for “Stardust” is about how my mom was always a painter but through her life she struggled with mental illness and eventually the pills she was taking made it so she couldn’t paint anymore because of the side effects and shaking. She always wanted me to be an artist or creative of some kind and I feel like this video is my way of saying thank you for her giving me the wings I have now.”  
– Karlyle Walker aka Krushendo

 It’s only suiting that this melodic, bass-filled jam which sounds similar to something you might hear from heavy hitters like Marshmello or Illenium, has such a professional and powerful music video to go along with it. The clips of Krushendo rocking out on a beautiful piano and live footage of him throwing it down behind the decks at a jam-packed show are perfectly intertwined with the story of a young, beautiful painter which starts off joyfully but turns dark and unsettling, before finally coming to a peaceful and hopeful conclusion when the two parts converge.
Give this inspiring piece of art that was created right here in our very own backyard a watch and learn a little more about this talented, young producer below. And if you’re heading to Sonic Bloom this weekend, be sure to catch him on Saturday at 2:30pm at the Hummingbird Stage.
