Contorta is the conceptual music portfolio of Kyle Sanford, hailing from Austin, Texas. Inspired by the pinus-contorta, an American West Coast pine tree that can only reproduce by wildfire, Kyle began producing cross-genre experimental bass in 2019, releasing his debut EP Nu Beginnings in 2020 and second EP Origins in January of 2022. Kyle infuses melodic soundscapes with world influences along with additives of psytrance, drum and bass, house, and more for a box of chocolates style he likes to call quantum bass. He has had the honor to play the same stages as Supertask, Mr. Bill, Mystic Grizzly, Zeke Beats, and many more, one highlight being the homegrown Austin bass festival, Beyond Existence. Whether a live Contorta mix or speakers at home, Kyle plans on taking his listeners on a transcendental journey through nature and the ethos of sound.
