The best EDM in Denver in September
BIG GIGANTIC @ RED ROCKS AMPHITHEATRE | 9/28/13
Last year, Big Gigantic's show at Red Rocks was the best EDM show of the year, and that speaks volumes considering how many other shows there were to choose from. Their feeling of hometown pride was simply unmistakable as the outfit went into "Colorado Mountain High" and a giant projection of the state flag draped the rocks. The crowd went bananas, and the duo ended up delivering its best set ever. Needless to say, this return of Rowdytown is highly anticipated.
MARK FARINA @ BAR STANDARD | 9/20/13
Mark Farina's track selection is superb; he's got a vast library of funky house, acid jazz, hip-hop, spoken-word samples and unexpected surprises. But his popularity and longevity aren't mere products of his ability to select a track for the dance floor. Really, it's the sheer enjoyment of the music that he exhibits that makes his sets so enjoyable. He's not motionless or joyless behind the decks. -- Amber Taufen
DUSKY @ NORAD DANCE BAR | 9/27/13
Dusky specializes in an older style of house -- the kind of house that was around before 10,000 fist pumpers everywhere latched on to house music. No, this is the good stuff. This is the stuff babies are made to. You'll know exactly what we're talking about when you hear Dusky's smooth vocals on top of those sultry house beats.
ZEDD @ OGDEN THEATRE | 9/24/13
Zedd is part of that new wave of producers putting new twists on old genres and making EDM tracks that are radio-ready. "Clarity," for instance, can be heard sandwiched between a Rihanna and Justin Timberlake song, but it still bangs out in the clubs and venues. Zedd's a good DJ, and chances are you'll hear a lot of Dillon Francis-esque tracks and maybe some tasteful remixes thrown in the mix, as well.
