The best EDM in Denver this weekend
BLOND:ISH @ NORAD | FRI, 6/28/13
Blond:ish is proof that you can't judge a book by its cover. DJs Anstascia and Vivie-Ann might superficially resemble a dozen interchangeable, pretty blonde club spinners who seem more invested in their hairdressers than their record collections, but the hair and funky clothing are as far as that comparison goes.

The two weave sets and create tracks that playfully skirt the razor-thin line dividing house and pure techno, layering trippy vocals over sassy percussion and soft, melodic electronic thrums that buzz through your body, eliciting dance moves you didn't even know you had. Formed in Montreal and now based out of London, the duo has also perfected the trick of bridging old-world and new-world dance-music sensibilities. The floor at NORAD will no doubt be scorched bare when these ladies take the helm.
