Eighth Annual Deadrocks Hangover: Heavy Bass, Heady Atmosphere, and Special Guest GRIZ

Zeds Dead Brings the Heat to Denver

Deadrocks Hangover was the last event of the bass-filled celebration for The Fourth of July. On theFourth, this show commenced at Mission Ballroom at 9:30pm after the Dead Beats Jamboree at Civic Center Park. After two shows at Red Rocks Amphitheater, Dead Beats brought the heat to Denver. Ternion Sound opened up the night with some deep melodic bass and dubstep that set the bar high for ZedsDead.

Ternion Sounds opens up the night at one of the most highly favorable venues in Colorado

The opener Ternion Sound originally played together at Infrasound Music Festival in 2016, and it was immediately obvious to all that this dynamic trio would be unbeatable in many aspects. The trio of dubstep veterans Nostalgia, Apparition, & Johnny Foreplay have unmatched energy and have started to receive support from industry legends such as Distance, J:Kenzo, N-Type, and The Widdler. As the crowd slowly filled in from the Jamboree, the main floor and seating above was buzzing in excitement. 

Although Mission Ballroom is a relatively new venue to Colorado, it consistently proves the incredible amount of thought put into every detail of this venue. From the incredible views from any seat in the house to the complete lack of door and bar lines, Mission Ballroom is a highly favorable venue for all. 

Zeds Dead leaves the crowd in speechless with special guest and local legend – Griz

The audience anxiously waited after Ternion Sound left a lasting impression on the crowd with their melodic dubstep bass-heavy jams.  The lights drew down and Zeds Dead entered with some bass-y reverb and Darth Vader in the background that put everyone in a state of pure awe. The Mission Ballroom laser bars traced the stage as DJ booth created a floating effect over the crowd. The dynamic duo immediately created a high-energy environment where everyone was on the edge of their seats to hear what was to come next. 

Even with this being their eighth Deadrocks, Zeds Dead bleeds passion for the underground music scene and represents an eclectic assortment of artists in their remixes.  After playing songs like Frontlines, Collapse, Alive, and many more unheard hits, the first half of the show came to a close and the crowd’s excitement was contagious.

As the lasers flash and the light starts to rise, Zeds Dead says that they are excited to announce their special guest: “You may have heard of him – he goes by Griz.” As the local legend arrived on stage, the crowd exploded with ecstatic cheers and hollers.  Griz and Zeds Dead instantly created many never heard remixes, combining dubstep, heavy bass, and some drum and bass. Griz’s easy-going summer jams combined with Zeds Dead heavy bass and incredible remixes of popular songs put the crowd in a complete state of shock. With four shows, five sets, in three days, this year’s Deadrocks is one that will not be forgotten in a hurry.
