Hippie Sabotage seems to be a group that simply lets the music speak for itself. Take their website for example, which is nothing more than a single home page that takes you through a visual journey into the clouds as it sets you up perfectly to their single Waiting Too Long, which is playing in the background. This is a truly unique experience, as would be attending one of their concerts. Luckily for us, the two brothers of Hippie Sabotage will be coming to Denver for a special performance at the Bluebird Theater on Thursday, June 18th. If you’re curious as to the roots of Hippie Sabotage, the bio below will give you a little insight as to who they are and where they came from.
Hippie Sabotage is a Sacramento-born and raised brother duo that started to make music in the mid-2000s. Working closely with local producer Chase Moore during their early career, they mixed the cultural melting pot vibes of their hometown with hip-hop and produced beats for rappers such as J. Leake and Yukmouth. They later collaborated with Chicago-based artists such as Calez of 2008ighties and Kami de Chukwu. Hippie Sabotage developed and expanded their beats and soon incorporated more diverse influences on their tracks for a whole new host of rappers such as Alex Wiley (“Something to Say”) and C Plus (“Callin’ Me”). They released their own material with the EP Vacants in early 2013 and followed this with a couple more singles (“White Tiger” and “Sunny”) throughout the same year. It was only in spring 2014 when singer Ellie Goulding posted their remix for “Stay High” by Swedish singer Tove Lo (songwriter for the likes of Icona Pop and Girls Aloud) on Instagram that they began to get worldwide attention. The song reached over a million hits following Goulding’s endorsement and signaled a bright future for the duo. – Aneet Nijjar, Rovi
