The best EDM in Denver this weekend

These days, when electronic music seems to be all about distorted bass and ear-popping drum lines, artists like Patrice Bäumel (due at UNstructured Sounds' inaugural Denver Winter Showcase) are hard to find. And that's a shame, because Bäumel's minimal productions and sweeping sets are like the soundtracks to your sweetest, softest dreams actualized in reality.

The Amsterdam native takes minimal techno to a light, precise, almost breezy place that few can match, fusing his sets with elements of house music here and there at exactly the right moment. The result is a hypnotic set that slowly builds until you're wreathed in a net of noise that Bäumel spins from gossamer and air. Despite its ethereal quality, make no mistake: This is dance music at its finest, and Bäumel can draw feet to the floor just as effectively as any DJ who relies on bass tactics.
