Global Dub Festival at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, 5/18/12
Flux Pavilion followed Doc, which has become status quo for the duo when touring America (or in Denver, at least), and just the same, he dropped an expected set with few surprises. It's strange, but within less than one year these guys have hit Denver three times, and each time they play almost the exact same songs. As DJs, these guys have a world of music at their fingertips, yet they stick with the banger tracks that caught the original fans and generally steer clear of much live experimentation.

Flux Pavilion still came on strong and brought the heat, and similar to Doctor P, played tracks that we all love to sing the hooks to before slapping the air and stepping side to side like some sort of 'hood march-in-place. "Bass cannon," and "Cracks," both of which are known worldwide at this point, took over the venue, but as Flux's set winded down, it was apparent that the night peaked early, and couldn't ride a six hour bass wave.
