Ableminds is the creation of Jordan Linit and Charles Parker Mertens. Combining Dirty Beats and Live Looping with ripping synths, Filthy Basslines, and heavenly guitar, performed by two instrumentalist's/DJ's. This project truly integrates the party atmosphere of a DJ w/ the excitement of a live band that can improvise and make each performance unique. This music is "sure to make your ass shake". It is a combination of their love of composing, performing, and producing bass heavy, dance laden BEATS.

The Duo has been in the studio on and off for a year shaping their sound and working on their debut album scheduled for release in the Summer of 2011. With the album nearing completion, Ableminds has focused on incorporating live looping/improvisation with the original beats created by these 2 colorado producers.

On stage Charlie and Jordan perform (and loop) guitars, basses, and many synthesizers, while at the same time DJ both original tracks and audio created on the fly. This dual DJ/ Live band is sure to make you think about what an "Electronic Band" should be.
