If you live in Connecticut and love electronic music, you might want to check out an emerging talent tonight, June 14, at The Space in Hamden. Boltcutter, real name Riley Bradway, began djing and producing in 2010, and since then has garnered a worldwide fan base and support from notables such as Krewella, Nick Thayer, DANK, Reid Speed, and Sadhu. His self-released third album, New Beginnings, dropped on June 1, about three weeks before he graduates from Nathan Hale-Ray High School. That’s right, Boltcutter is only 17 years old.
Bradway, a native of Moodus, will be enrolling at the New England Institute Of Technology this October to study audio and video engineering. “I love writing and DJing music and I will never stop,” he told The Mercurial via email. Spanning many genres – including all styles of dubstep, house, drum & bass, and their closely related subgenres – he creates a wide blend for dance music lovers everywhere. You can check out his new album below.
Bradway shares the bill with Prank Skate, DJ B-Lew, Saul Goodie, and AREA at The Space tonight. Doors are at 7pm, and tickets cost $10. For more information, visit thespacect.com/event/archives/8318. The Space is located at 295 Treadwell Street in Hamden. Follow Boltcutter on Facebook at facebook.com/boltcutterct and on Bandcamp at boltcutterct.bandcamp.com.
