Cloonee (real name David Bissett) is a U.K. tech house producer and DJ. Since 2014, he’s released groundbreaking music with a signature sound that keeps listeners begging for more. Some of his most recognizable tracks include “Mi Amor” with Wade and his latest release titled “Badman Sound.” Unsurprisingly, Bissett is also signed to Chris Lake’s label, Black Book Records.
On Friday, March 10th, Bissett touched down in Boulder, Colorado. This sold-out stop on his South Of Heaven Tour transformed the 1,000-person capacity Boulder Theater into a haven for house heads. Also on the lineup were MERKII B2B Gogimal, RPSM B2B RYNE, and AMICI.
Surprise 360° Stage
Loyal fans traveled to the venue early and secured their spots right next to the stage, which for this show, was a 360° stage! The DJ booth was on the floor at the front of the venue so attendees could gather on all three sides of it. Some lucky people also got to stand on the venue’s stage, behind the DJ booth. The balcony was also open for those that wanted to take advantage of the seating and birds-eye view.
Throughout the night, production consisted of multicolored lasers and lights, a disco ball, and cryogenic effects. These elements were used for each set, instead of only being saved for the headliner.
Contagious Energy from Start to Finish
According to Broadway World, the Boulder Theater recently got a major upgrade to its sound system — and boy was it bumpin’.
RPSM B2B RYNE and MERKII B2B Gogimal got the night started. These artists gave off incredibly contagious energy throughout their sets. They looked so happy to be onstage that the crowd couldn’t help but smile and dance along to their upbeat mix of tunes.
AMICI and friends were up next, and they even had a saxophonist and an electric guitar player! They played a crazy cool mashup of Ookay’s “Thief” (with live sax, of course) and Blue Foundation’s “Eyes On Fire” (Zeds Dead Remix). They played various other crowd favorites, including John Summit’s “Where You Are” with Hayla, and they even switched it up with some drum and bass.
By 11:00 PM, the venue was noticeably busier. There was still plenty of room to move around and dance thanks to the balcony being open.
Up Next: Cloonee
Unsurprisingly, Bissett opened with his Wade collab “Mi Amor.” The anticipation could be felt building until the beat dropped and everyone was dancing. Shortly afterwards, he played his remix of Chris Lake’s “Turn Off The Lights.” Everyone was singing along during this special moment. Another hit with the crowd was “Tripasia” with Brisotti.
This set was unique because Bissett let his music do the talking. There weren’t a ton of visual effects, such as a large LED screen or lasers. Instead, it was a dark room with minor visual elements. Depending on where attendees were standing in the venue, it was almost hard to pick out Bissett from the crowd sometimes due to the 360° setup.
A Memorable Night
Those that scored tickets to this event sure were lucky. This was an extremely intimate set for Bissett, who’s played such huge festivals worldwide as Beyond The Valley in Melbourne. Furthermore, it was a 360° set, allowing each attendee to feel completely immersed in the music.
