  The Openers 

Denver local DJ, Donn13 graced the stage first. Just back in February, Donn13 played ReEnTRANCE Thursdays at Club Vinyl and back a few months ago, In August of 2021, Donn13 played at Tracks Denver. As attendees were starting to get in, Donn13 played deep house, progressive, techno and trance. Donn13 certainly set the tone: an extraordinary evening filled with phenomenal music. Click here to listen to more from this Denver up and coming artist here.

Following right after Donn13 was Kristina Sky, who is on the same record label as Darude: Sleeping Giant Music. By this point, Reelworks was getting packed with attendees thrilled for a night full of trance. In a predominantly male industry, Kristina Sky has proved herself of great talent. Her special sound of melodic trance blend with progressive house was heard all through Reelworks with lasers, outstanding drinks and even sitting options, including a couch in the back. Everyone in the venue was seen dancing, talking to one another and enjoying the evening. Check out Kristina Sky‘s and Danny Stubb‘s track released one year ago High Tide featuring Evan Henzi here.
