Blunt Force is an Austin-based live electronic music group consisting of Brian Gustafson and Deniz Baykal. The duo brings a high-energy performance to the stage, combining live instruments and hard hitting bass. Their sets vary in both style and tempo, leaving no genre untouched.

Having played alongside artists such as Savoy, Break Science, Opiuo, and The Floozies, Blunt Force has quickly risen as an up and coming live electronic music act. In the Spring of 2016, the pair landed themselves a spot on The Odyssey tour supporting All Good Records artist, Sunsquabi. 

The duo has racked up multiple appearances at Euphoria Music Festival, Wakarusa, and many more. Blunt Force made their Alaska debut last summer at Euphoria Festival - Denali. With new music releases and impressive performances to look forward to, 2017 is about to be Blunt Force's biggest year yet.
