Review and Recap Video of Krushendo’s Take Over of Cervantes

Colorado local Karlyle Walker, aka Krushendo, has been on the rise in the melodic bass scene. Since he opened for MitiS in 2018, Krushendo has been at the forefront in the bass capital. He has truly been crushing it! Last month, on February 7th, Krushendo released a soul-crushing dubstep banger titled, “Dungeon”. As well, just a few months ago, Krushendo released MiTis – TRY featuring RØRY (Krushendo Rekrush). On January 21st and 22nd of this year, Krushendo graced the stage direct supporting Illenium at two sold-out shows in Aspen, Colorado. A few weeks later he played another sold out show in Portland, Oregon with MiTiS again and Crystal Skies.

On March 3rd, Cervantes’s weekly installment of SHIFT Thursdays held one of Krushendo’s largest headlining shows to date. Joining him as support was, Jakattak, NGHTOWL, Prismatic, and Docfunk.

Art And Silent Disco

As soon as Cervantes Other Side doors opened at 8 PM, the floor started filling up. When fans walked in, they were greeted with a bar. While you walk further back into the venue, there was artwork by numerous talented artists. Back on the patio, there was a silent disco hosted by Make Wavs and Longevity Productions.

Starting The Night Off 

Denver local Jakattak kicked off the evening. Jakattak played his unique sound for fans to move to. Jakattak has been on the rise with new releases including just a few months ago, his collab with DeniZen “Creature” through Make Wavs, and his bootleg remix of Big Sean “Moves”. In addition, back in December, he took over a five-hour slot during the Noise for Toys fundraiser over Twitch. As well, Jakattak has graced stages across Colorado such as The Church Nightclub, Your Moms House, and 830 North in Fort Collins, which is an arcade, bowling alley, and venue.

The Time Has Come 

While Krushendo was preparing to grace the stage, fans were noticed walking closer to capture the perfect view. Krushendo started off with major heat as he was playing melodic vocals and all of the heavier melodic bass elements with the smooth tempos of slower, heavy-hitting bass music. Everyone was getting down with smiles on their faces and even, some headbanging.

Also on stage, was a guitarist and drummer at certain points, creating a unique experience for fans. To top it off, lasers consisting of numerous colors were going off during each banger. The lasers could be seen even in the back by the art. Above the stage was a visual screen that included his name and other visuals to get lost in. Fans were able to immersive themselves into the whole event, and experience the special evening. In addition, Krushendo announced his upcoming EP. Fans were able to listen to a glimpse into his new music, including unreleased songs.

Ending the night was Docfunk. He kept the vibes high with his Dirtybass house, Drum and Bass with Hip Influences, and Halftime tunes. Keeping the fans dancing with some “booty music” as Docfunk calls it, ensuring fans ended the night perfectly. Check out his popular tracks here, including “Slum Lordz“, Ghetto Funk“, and “In Da House Vol.2 “, all songs to make you lose control.

An End to the Madness

Krushendo opened up the first night with some very catchy vibes and finished off strong playing some originals that I believe are not released yet. Night two Krushendo brought out Alexander Cruz on guitar of ZOA and Cheyenne Duba of Silver Siren on vocals. They played a 2020 release that reminds me of old Porter Robinson live, Cheyennes voice was excellent and the tune set the tone for Krushendo to play once of the wildest sets in recent memory.

Catch Krushendo headlining Cervantes Otherside in Denver, CO on March 3rd with Prismatic, NGHT OWL, Jakattak, and Docfunk for a night of eclectic bass music. You might recognize Prismatic, he put out an EP with the legend Au5. He has been making his own waves in Denver for quite sometime.
