Though it’s often overshadowed by the nonstop barrage of shows that take place in Denver and Boulder, the venue Rawkus has quietly but effectively been putting Colorado Springs on the electronic music map over the last couple of years. Starting right around the same time as ELCO back in 2012, Rawkus has become a regular stop for some of the scenes biggest stars. It’s hosted household names in the past such as Black Tiger Sex Machine, Bad Boy Bill, Crizzly, and Valentino Khan just to name a few. And with upcoming acts like Michal Menert & The Pretty Fantastics, LOUDPVCK, and MiMOSA, it’s showing no signs of slowing down.
This coming weekend is nothing to ignore either, as the Springs will be treated to a back-to-back dose of two of bass music’s hottest stars in Riot Ten (3/4) and Antiserum (3/5). The best part? Rawkus has been kind enough to give us our own Buy 1 Get 1 Free promo code for each show. Just head to the Riot Ten ticket link here and the Antiserum link here and enter promo code ELCO (not case sensitive) at the bottom, then hit “apply promo”, and BOOM! You and a friend are going to the show for just $10!

Chris was recently featured on the Sirius Satellite Radio station “Electric Area”, and aims to continue his growth as a music producer.
Riot Ten has recently received support from A$ap Ferg, who has been in contact with him in regards to a collaboration for originals and official remixes. Other supporters include: Flux Pavilion, Caked Up, Kennedy Jones, Victor Niglio, D!rty Aud!o, Migos, and many more. Join the movement as Riot Ten takes over the scene.”
“San Francisco-based producer, Antiserum, is a permanent fixture atop the cresting wave that is forward-thinking bass music. Over the years, his inventive and ever-evolving style has landed his records on many of dance music’s leading imprints including OWSLA, SMOG, Firepower, and Never Say Die, in turn gaining earnest support from every heavyweight of the genre including Skrillex, Diplo, Bassnectar, RL Grime, 12th Planet, and countless others. From hip hop-inspired highlights like “Brick Squad Anthem” and “Trippy” produced with longtime collaborator, Mayhem, to the cutting edge sounds of his most recent single “Boom” with Tha Trickaz and Snails collab “Wild”, Antiserum’s sub-heavy output has continually pushed boundaries in bass music with voracious creativity.
As with every year, 2015 saw Antiserum bringing his electrifying sets around the globe, hitting nearly 40 cities in the US with Crizzly from January to May before touring in Australia and New Zealand over summer. After a few months locked away in the studio, Antiserum will be hitting the road once again this Fall with his pal Mayhem, embarking on his first-ever headline tour where he’ll premiere all of the new material he’s been making this year.”
