The Level Up Tour @ The Ogden Theater 6/11/16

The Level Up Tour @ The Ogden Theater 6/11/16

Denver has become a pinnacle of hip hop and rap music over the last few years which is an incredibly exciting thing for fans. For a long time, every good tour overlooked our beautiful city because they didn’t think we could draw big enough crowds. We have confidently proved the naysayers wrong.

Physically living up to his name, Damien Orienti (self-titled “Trollphace”— a scarily accurate title for his bubbly physical appearance paired with an eerily mundane personality) has quickly risen to fame in the electronic music community in recent years, establishing himself as one of the most violent DJ’s in the game.

Jedi Mind Tricks: Cervantes' 5/13/16

Jedi Mind Tricks: Cervantes' 5/13/16

Friday the 13th of May was upon us, but no need to fear; Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom had it covered. They held a two-night blowout with some of the illest hip-hop groups of the last couple decades. The line-up included Immortal Technique, Jedi Mind Tricks, Binary Star, Chino XL, Poison Pen, and DJ Static. It was a throwback to a time when hip-hop was king and the lyricists ruled the land with clever similes and story rhymes.

Disco Biscuits: Red Rocks 6/4/16

Disco Biscuits: Red Rocks 6/4/16

On June 4th, 2016 the Disco Biscuits made it back to Red Rocks along with Ghostland Observatory and Twiddle. Twiddle set off the show, while Ghostland Observatory helped entertain the audience between the two sets of Disco Biscuits. The openers brought quite the appropriate mood for the headliner; Disco Biscuits. Consisting of four men; one on the guitar, one on bass, one on drums, and one on the keyboard, they create a soothing combination of what some describe as “trance fusion.” This jam band can go from electronic to rock to techno-house to trance all while maintaining the same general vibe.

Chromeo & Jamie xx: Red Rocks 6/2/16

Chromeo & Jamie xx: Red Rocks 6/2/16

Wow! The combination of Chromeo, Jamie xx and the magnificent Red Rocks Amphitheater, turned last Thursday, June 2nd into a dance time machine of the last 2 decades of music and beyond. Chromeo AKA Dave 1 and P-Thugg, are an electronic duo from Montreal formed in 2002. Their music is a thrilling combination of dance music, blue-eyed soul and a funky dose of rock, reviving music lovers from a plethora of particular dance junkies. Jamie xx, on the other hand, likes to experiment and expand upon pop, R&B and electronic music, strategically building a new path in the ambitious world of music and inviting the world to join on his intoxicating venture.

ETC!ETC! on Juggling his Personal Life, Bucket List Activities, and Colorado

The Colorado Culture team had the opportunity to chat with ETC!ETC, check out the exclusive interview:

Touring must present some unique challenges to you as a parent. How do you manage that?

It was definitely hard juggling both at the beginning, but over time its gotten better. The kids are older now so they are busy at school and it keeps their minds (and time) busy while I’m gone. They hardly notice me now lol.

Matoma: Mishawaka 6/3/16

Matoma: Mishawaka 6/3/16

Tropical house and funky beats were brought to the Mish on Friday night by some incredible artists. Upon walking into the venue, my first thoughts were, "Wow, I can't believe I haven't been here before". Mishawaka Amphitheater is tucked into the mountains just northwest of Fort Collins. It sits right on a river and is surrounded by nature. The only word that comes to mind when trying to describe this venue is magical. If you're looking for an intimate outdoor concert setting, look no further.

Seven Lions: Ogden Theater 2/27/16

Seven Lions: Ogden Theater 2/27/16

It’s no coincidence that good-natured, kind, down to earth DJ’s are the ones that send concert-goers vibes sky-high.
For Jeff Montalvo a.k.a. Seven Lions, his soft and sweet demeanor is matched by the ethereal explosions of chilling vocals and haunting melodies that saturate every second of his live sets. Each song hits home deep within the heart and soul as this veteran DJ mixes with extreme transparency, flavor, and show of skill. As an EDM fan, you probably know him very well, but if you haven’t hop on over to Soundcloud immediately and fire up Strangers feat. Tove Lo (you know, back when she was just a Talking Body).

Andy Immerman: Syntax EP

Andy Immerman: Syntax EP

For those who know Andy Immerman, they know that he is both a mainstay over at Souls in Action Entertainment, and also a close friend of ours here at Colorado Culture...among many other things.  For those who don't know Andy, we'll have you know that the aforementioned "many other things" include being a multi-talented artist, with his passions lying in music production, photography, and graphic design.  This past week, he released an EP of original music entitled Syntax, an intriguing melding of Andy's brand of electronic music.  We caught up with him to talk more about the record, and also to allow those of you who don't yet know him, to get to do so a little better.

Stooki Sound B2B Hoodboi: Summit Music Hall 5/12/2016

Stooki Sound B2B Hoodboi: Summit Music Hall 5/12/2016

Back-to-back Trap sets are always a treat and rare to find. On May 12, Summit Music Hall in Denver hosted an entire back to back show featuring Denver natives Vinnie Maniscalco and Treyy G, LA-based DJ/producer Hoodboi, as well as the London-based trap-duo Stooki Sound. The nature of the venue and the size of the crowd (not exactly your sold-out show) brought an intimate feel to an incredible trap show, which is unlikely to come across with trap being the most popular EDM genre in the US right now.

Snails: The Ogden Theater 1/16/16

Snails: The Ogden Theater 1/16/16

 

The big date was January 16th, a date many had obviously cleared their schedules for and for good reason. With 1,600 tickets pre-sold and several hopefuls taking on the chilled weather seeking impossible last minute tickets sales outside of Ogden, the SNAILS sold out show was seemingly one of the most anticipated shows in Denver to date. Just before the front doors finally opened for entrance, bassheads were lined up around the block as the DJ’s inside were preparing for every trap savants dream.

Life In Color: National Western Complex 2/20/16

Life In Color: National Western Complex 2/20/16

A sea of white cotton apparel trickled into Denver’s National Western Complex, each metaphorical drop poised in anticipation for the release of their transgressions through tantalizing electronic tones. For many, this was more than your average showcase. It was a representation of freedom and finding  the persevering truth within ourselves to still remain evident. Life In Color promised us a kingdom and we were given nothing less.
