Recently, Denver celebrated the 10 year anniversary of Flux Pavilion’s and Doctor P’s label Circus Records. With it came a myriad of diverse bass producers to Denver’s newest venue Mission Ballroom. Also, it’s no secret that Flux Pavilion is one of the most recognized and respected names in the EDM scene. This year he has been celebrating his success with Circus by embarking on a 19 show tour. This tour hit Denver on 9/1 to begin the fall show season with a reverberating dubstep bang.

The Bass Music Starts

To begin the night, Chime, the young producer from the UK first took the stage. He mixed melodic bass with heavy dubstep drops to warm up the crowd at Mission Ballroom. Mission holds the perfect setup for both the seasoned show veteran and the energetic newbie, with leveled seating similar to Red Rocks and plenty of room on the floor to dance without care. Following Chime came Conrank b2b DMVU. As soon as the first heavy drop hit, the duo forced the crowd on their feet and hit with one filthy bass drop after the other. Conrank did not hold back in his over the top production style and continuous hype-up of the crowd. Meanwhile, Denver’s hometown hero DMVU mostly stayed at the decks to hit with his buildups. This unique b2b proved a necessary intro for what was ahead in the night.

As Cookie Monsta took over the stage, the visuals changed. From the psychedelic, in-time with the drop visuals of Conrank b2b DMVU, they warped into clown faces and dystopian vibes. Cookie Monsta’s visuals went in perfect cohesion with his deeper drops and trap beat undertones. Earlier this year, he had posted on all his social media facets that he would be cancelling all future tour dates, including the 10 year circus tour. Due to these circumstances, it’s even more special that Cookie Monsta participated by bringing such a heavy set to the bass capital. Later, as long time producer Funtcase followed, the UK legend stuck to more traditional dubstep drops with focus on riddim. He steered clear of his drum and bass roots and stuck to dubstep, making a perfect platform for Flux to close out the night.

Following Funtcase and making a stark entrance from his predecessors, Flux Pavilion began his set by playing a whimsical intro on his guitar. This led into a high-energy melodic bass drop to warm the crowd up. Flux then proceeded to showcase his talents by mixing between traditional dubstep and hardcore UK trap drops. This, combined with melodic bass ensured the audience stayed out of their seats the entire time. During his set, he started a throwback block by playing the original “Bass Cannon”. Flux Pavilion kept with this same energy by mixing into “International Anthem” and “I Can’t Stop,” both being pivotal songs that pioneered the EDM sound. He ended the set by switching gears into upbeat future bass, creating the perfect environment for his closing which consisted of intense dubstep and trap fusions.

Overall, the Denver stop of the 10 years of Circus Records tour brought a night of non-stop bass. Mission Ballroom proved the perfect backdrop, with top visual and audio quality to ensure the audience was slapped in the face with every single drop. Denver’s EDM scene will not quickly recover from all the headbanging, but will be left desperately anticipating Flux Pavilion and his buddies next return to the bass capital.
