On Friday the 13th, Kai Wachi sold out the Bluebird Theater in Denver for a Bass-heavy showcase. The 24-year-old producer has continued to rise in the EDM music scene with his first release in 2012. Since then, he has only gained attention with his remixes and Trap-heavy songs. In 2016, he released the single “Demons,” which gained him widespread recognition from the Bass-god himself Excision, even being added to all three years of the Lost Lands lineup. For Kai Wachi’s Denver stop of his DemiGod tour, he brought a mixture of heavy and deep Dubstep. Notably, the lineup included: Sektah, Calvin Hobbes and Sam Lamar.

Sektah

To begin, the night started off deep with Sektah. A Colorado local, he played a deep Dubstep set that was an interesting choice for an opener. Instead of beginning heavy, he experimented with his sound with some Space Bass vibes. However, as his set progressed, and the crowd increased, Sektah began to play a lot more Riddim chops into his mixing style. In particular, this mixture of both genres transitioned well into Calvin Hobbes set. Boasting his own style of “Hobbestep,” the young producer maintained one of the heaviest sets of the lineup. With bass drop after bass drop, the crowd’s energy changed compared to his predecessor. Obviously, it was clear that a large portion of the audience came out to support him with many enthusiastic screams.

As the lights intensified, Sam Lamar took the stage. He took the energy Calvin Hobbes projected and doubled it with his technical mixing. The lights on the side of the stage twisted and turned in a manner that paired well with his dark visuals. Instead of playing mainly Dubstep, he threw in a mixture of Riddim, Trap and Future Bass. His Facebook page boasts “one of the top 40 EDM artists to watch in 2020,” and his stage presence and professional mixing exemplified why. The mood of the audience stayed upbeat in order to set the tone for Kai Wachi.

Finally, it became apparent why this show sold out as Kai Wachi took the stage. The Boise, Idaho native captivated his audience immediately with his overzealous stage persona. True to his musical background, he played a mixture of heavy Trap beats off his album DemiGod with forceful Dubstep drops. With each drop, he counted out and hyped up the crowd both with his hand gestures and mic takeover. Further, the demonic background and skulls to accompany his “Skull Team” brand only helped to escalate the stage production of this tour. Ultimately, the crowd engagement that resonated when he played some of his tracks off his album, like “Photograph” and “Break,” demonstrated how he’s risen to become a staple in the Dubstep scene.

Overall, Kai Wachi’s DemiGod show, provided a perfect event for a Friday the 13th night out in Denver. Moreover, he made it clear that he knows how to sell out a venue and keep his crowd entertained with the artists chosen as support for this tour. Sam Lamar kept the night fresh with his multi-genre set, while Calvin Hobbes and Sektah played two varying sets to keep the audience on their feet. Kai Wachi boasts of his “Skull Team” brand, and that’s exactly what he did–break skulls.
