One of electronic music’s bright spots can also be one of its blemishes. Electronic music is constantly changing and evolving, faster than any other genre. Its trends influence pop music, and normally by the time pop music has picked up on one, it’s already old news in the EDM world. It keeps it fresh and interesting. But, it often gives fans and artists alike little time to revel in the latest sound. We sometimes don’t truly appreciate styles and trends because they are replaced so quickly. But not tonight….
As part 2 of our “Homage” series at Denver’s The Black Box, we present to you Homage: The Evolution of Bass Music. In February we paid our respects to the history of house music, and now in May we do the same for bass music. Alan Sumler, aka DJ 9, will be kicking the night off with the origins of bass music from the 90s. We’re talkin’ Jungle, we’re talkin’ Drum & Bass, we’re talkin’ UK Garage. And probably more stuff that we don’t even know about.
After that, Hot Surfaces will be taking over playing 2000s era tracks. Rusko, Caspa, Bassnectar, and Pretty Lights are just a few of the artists you can expect to hear. Closing out the night will be Chelsey Burkholder, aka Supermassive. She’ll be catching us up to speed with stuff reaching back to 2010 and all the way up to 2018. So come on out for a night of something a little different than your run of the mill shows. The event starts at 9 and is free if you’re 21 or over and $5 for 18 and up. See you at The Black Box!
