FLOATGOAT is a funk’d up electronic music trio based  in Denver, CO.  Members Gavi Torres-Olivares (guitar), Arias James Goldanloo (bass), and Rusty Balalau (drums) play their instruments live and design sounds using various synthesizers.  The young band put out their first EP on Jan 11, 2017 titled, Whatever Floats Your Goat. FLOATGOAT sounds like a galactic blend of James Brown, Prince, Rick James, Parliament, Daft Punk, Lotus, and Chromeo, with some freshly shredded guitar licks, funky bass biscuits, and crunchy synth waffles.  Their extensive live performances across Colorado include Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom, Animas City Theatre, The Eldo, Your Mom’s House, Hodis Halfnote, Beta, and more. Festival performances include The Underground Music Showcase, Shamanic Boom, BlissFall Music and Arts, and Launch Pad Camping/Music Festivals.



FLOATGOAT was featured in The Ark Magazine in conjunction with their headliner at The Eldo in Crested Butte, and their latest single release. “Floatgoat may just be the best Colorado band you’ve never heard, and if you haven’t heard them, you should..” -The Ark Magazine

“Scrumpies” is the next level of floatgoat jamtronica as the duo steps into a micro-particle funk portal unlike anything floating goats have ever heard. The roots of this funk portal come from jazz/rock fusion, and more virtuous parts over longer jazz influenced chord progressions. The licks get scrumpadellic in this track, but always expect more improvisation in a live performance. We got inspired to write this tune on a tour with Evanoff after playing Animas City Theatre in Durango. Some dude kept making up funny words for things, and one was scrumpies, ‘The stuff that sticks to your foot after a raging party’.
