Canadian native Joel Zimmerman, better known as the major music pioneer, Deadmau5, just rocked Colorado with two undoubtedly mental nights at America’s favorite venue. Deadmau5 delivered one of the most innovative productions of our time: the Cube v3. In fact, it was coded and mastered by the king himself. When Deadmau5 revealed the new Cube v3, Denver could only pray for the icon’s return to Red Rocks in 2019. Zimmerman is seemingly a perfectionist, as many would guess, crafting and coding every tiny detail of his newest baby. The Cube has the ability to spin on its axle, as well as cater to “on the fly controls” for the screen. In short, that means that they can put anything on the screen and do anything with it at any given time.

Besides the beauty of the visual production, the sounds captured the hearts of all those who attended the winter party. On the first of November the attendees were hit with below-freezing temperatures, but Zimmer was in his element as he ostensibly loves performing in the cold. The two-day extravaganza showcased many different sounds from open to close, hosting quite the selection of Mau5trap family. Direct support consisted of the rapidly exploding techno killer, i_o, as well as the ever-so-creative Getter. The line up also brought in heavy hitter’s Callie Reiff and LIGHTS.

Banging Tunes

Once doors opened, a flood of energy entered the sold-out show as the sounds of Callie Reiff began to play. The multi-talented woman kicked off her career in 2016 with the release of “Tin Machine”. The New York native is a power house, with releases on A-Traks Fool’s Gold Records and notable recognition’s from EDM front-runners like Diplo. Callie Reiff came at us both nights with major hits and a variation of banging tunes. The self-taught drummer added live aspects to her set by including a drum pad, making her insanely fun to watch.

Unparalleled Alt-Pop

Based out of Toronto, LIGHTS filled all our alt-pop needs. LIGHTS boasts an impressive one million monthly streamers and over a hundred million US streams total. LIGHTS released “Skin&Earth” which pushed any limitations and exceeded all expectations, further proving her uniqueness in the scene. The high energy performance was not something to be reckoned with as it created an unparalleled experience for show goers.

Dark Techno Killer

The highly anticipated i_o made his Red Rocks debut on Friday night. Without a doubt, he demonstrated exactly why he has blown up into the dark techno killer that he is. i_o collab’d with Tommy Trash in 2017, really providing the most exposure to launch his stellar career. On Friday night we got techno two-stepping as his set was absolutely absurd, dropping new and old tunes. i_o will only continue to flourish with his death-defying tech. 

Getter, who ended his most recent tour early after tough criticism of his changed sound, did not come to mess around. This show was his first performance on the Rocks, making this set a mile-stone in his career. The “Visceral” artist bumped out major new heater “Heartless” which came out in the middle of last month. Getter played a variety of different sounds, even mixing in some crowd favorite “Terror Reid” stuff in the last fifteen minutes to everybody’s surprise.

Deadmau5 Cube v3 Masterpiece

The forefront of all things progressive-techno has Deadmau5 written all over it. The meticulous producer never fails to bring the best of the best to his shows. He always pays the closest attention to detail: whether coding his cube, scrutinizing every sound in his music, or even shaping the mau5 head into the lasers. It is impossible to deny that the human dynamo brings nothing short of a story-telling rather than just a set.

The visuals on his cube were images of the year; capturing popular meme’s and opening his set with scenes from notorious video games. Getting the full experience, it was only proper that Deadmau5 bring out a vocalist to sing his Grammy nominated tune, “Raise Your Weapon”. This Day of the Dead weekend was nothing short of perfection, furthering the belief that Deadmau5 is one of the largest pioneers in dance music.
