Altogether, it was another incredible night in the beautiful city of Denver. All of the musical and visual artists and vendors came together to make an unforgettable experience for everyone involved. We can’t wait to see what the future holds for all of these young bright artists.
At 2pm, individuals started to lineup outside of 1STBANK center in hopes of receiving a floor wristband. Every individual was excited to go to Church and seen in Black Tiger Sex Machine jerseys and other merchandise.
Doors opened at 7pm, and attendees were ready to get food, drinks, and merchandise. Kicking off the night first was Hairitage b2b SWARM. The two brought major heat in their b2b playing dubstep and other genres that set the tone for the evening. By this time, the floor was starting to fill up.

Seeming to come out of nowhere, the enigma known as Tripp st. took over the Ogden, in which he showcased his music. Adding to the night was an extraordinary visual experience from the Denver local “Nox Lumina“. The lineup included Maxfield, followed up by Templo. Then the one and only Kill Smth play as direct support for Tripp St.
All night, I kept hearing the same question being asked by curious fans, “who is Tripp St.?” He made his debut in just 2021 with an all-original 47-minute mix known as “Welcome to Tripp St.” Following up was his debut album “Welcome to Tripp St ” released on Clozees record label Odyzey. Not much is known about Tripp St. With speculations floating around that it’s a side project of a much larger artist such as Pretty Lights, Tipper, or GvO. Although many are skeptical of these rumors, one thing we are sure of is that he’s not new to producing. So the question remains who is Tripp St?
He got the night started in one of Denver’s most beloved venues, the Ogden with a capacity of about 1,600 people. The building is filled with history, closing its doors in 1917 as a theater and re-opening in 1993. Tonight, it will host Tripp St. as he takes over the Ogden.
Starting the night off as people fill in the dance-floor was Maxfield. With a slow-building eerie intro that drops into his unique style of production in which he seemed to blend ambient sounds with some trip-hop-inspired drums, layered with some deep bass . Contributing to the Maxfield experience was Alyssa Rose on visuals giving fans a visual experience of the music. Following up was Templo coming out the gate strong with his glitchy hip-hop-inspired tunes that had the people moving. At this point in the night, the Ogden is starting to feel like a sold-out event. The energy in the room was high and filled with excitement for the night ahead.
A wave of silence hits the crowd as everyone prepares themselves for the underground legend Kill Smth. The Denver local put on a jaw-dropping performance living up to the hype that surrounds his name. He played his deep experimental bass tunes with a touch of some drum and bass that had the crowd going nuts. In addition, Glass Crane and Actulize were on visuals taking fans on an all original pilgrimage through bass and time.
At this point in the night, the venue is filled with people shoulder to shoulder. Tripp St. takes over the Ogden with a slow-burning intro with cinematic properties, which leaves the audience in an almost meditative state, preparing themselves for what is to come. For the next hour, Tripp St. took the people on a journey through sound mending genres together. This was carried by the steady flow of euphoric free form bass and a combination of classical instruments with a touch of hip hop and funk to tie the whole thing together.
Overall, It was another incredibly unforgettable night at the beloved Ogden. Tripp st. along with his stunning lineup of support, gave his fans an experience they will never forget. Although we did not find out who the man behind Tripp st. is, he did speak on the mic for the first time leaving us more curious about who this man is. We are excited to see what all these amazing artists have in store for the years to come. You can catch Tripp St. again traveling to Iowa for Kosmic Kingdom in June.

Breaking News: Phoenix Lights Has Crash-Landed in Arizona
As the sun sets on the Arizona horizon, Phoenix Lights: Altered Orbit beamed down and crash-landed for the weekend. This out-of-this-world two day festival, produced by Relentless Beats, abducted the EDM community and left no crumbs when it came to revamping this beloved event. The return of Phx Lights has been long-awaited and fans have been beaming with excitement to experience it again.
Location, Layout, and Production
Phx Lights calls Phoenix Raceway home for the weekend of April 1st and 2nd. This new festival property is located in Avondale, AZ which is only 20 minutes outside Downtown Phoenix. Parking was easy and so was finding the box office and entry lines. ADA parking was also available with no charge for either lots. Entrance and exit of the property went very smoothly with minimal traffic.
I really appreciated the huge open space and how Relentless Beats was able to utilize it for the attendee’s benefit. This never used before location was able to fit not only RB’s megastructure, but also a very attention-grabbing VIP area, loads of food and drink stands, shop vendors, a silent disco, an art car stage, Monster semi-trucks, and various art installations. There was also plenty of room for dancing and the crowd never felt squished.
The two-day event also featured three stages known as the Mothership, the Invasion, and the Fallout.
Attendees could feel the cosmic energy flowing through the crowd when multiple phenomenal artists took the stage this past weekend.
Besides the infamous megastructure, Phoenix Lights also had a silent disco that was hosted by BeatBox Beverages and they had an art car stage that featured new and upcoming artists along with local favorites. To name a few, we were able to experience the styles of Dark Mark, VooDreau, Electric Polar Bears, Medicine Mike, Peachy Keen, and more. Fans were able to get their fix of dubstep, house, techno, trance, dnb, and various other genres throughout the weekend!
To view the full list of sponsors and vendors, you can do so here.
Some art installations included multiple spots for photo ops and a mural letting attendees know that “YOU ARE AMAZING” by Jayarr.art.
Bringing art to life this weekend, the Weird & Wonderful Cast were there and performed in various locations throughout the festival grounds.
I would 100% recommend Phoenix Lights to my fellow festival lovers. Relentless Beats is constantly evolving with every show they put on and I am so excited for their future plans. Be sure to follow all of RB’s socials for the most up to date information regarding upcoming events. And be sure to be on the lookout for the official afterparty movie of Phoenix Lights: Altered Orbit.
A Moment To Catch Up With Colorado’s Talented SLASHA
I got a chance to catch up with SLASHA before he embarked on a stop to Kansas City to show what he’s been cooking recently. Fresh off signing with “WASTELVND Records“, and expanding his brand across states, he’s someone that is bound to blow up overnight. This seemed like the perfect chance to spend some time with him to pick his brain.
Originally known as “Slimee”, “SLASHA” has had huge endorsements from big names in the dub-step scene. Most notably from SNAILS when he came through for his headlining Red Rocks show. The rebranding was to have something that provided more uniqueness and better represented the energy that he is aiming for. Not a lot of artists are confident enough to make these changes, but this is why I couldn’t have asked for a better person to interview in our Colorado music scene.
Now The Questions
Party Guru Press: I first want to thank you for your time to sit down and answer a few questions. What were the short-sight consequences of rebranding from “Slimee”?
SLASHA: It was unfortunate, but it has only made my craft stronger. Having someone in the scene with a similar name posed the problem of sticking out. I believe that it would’ve been easy for me to see it as a step backward, but it only provided me with time to look back and really handle everything more calculated. In moments like this, as long as you’re prepared for those short-term consequences, you can achieve your dreams.
Party Guru Press: It is pretty amazing what you’ve accomplished after the rebranding, as far as breaking the mold of just being a part of the local scene and pushing outside of your comfort zone. What has been your biggest performance to date?
SLASHA: I was fortunate enough to play a stage at “Paradiso” in Washington, which happened to be one of the larger-scale music festivals that year. It was absolutely insane, but that ties back to following your dreams to accomplish them.
Party Guru Press: I noticed that you’ve been pushing out music like crazy, with “Dark Side” being the most recently released on the 14th through “WASTELVND Records“, what is the inspiration for your style of music?
SLASHA: I initially got into producing in high school, but then I got very big into Illenium, which led me into EDM music. I was blown away when I started going to my first shows with how hype the crowd could get off of just one track. This led me into wanting to find a way to create that same energy throughout the whole set. This is where I really got into producing heavy hitters.
Party Guru Press: Where do you see the future taking you?
SLASHA: I really hope that I’ll get a chance to play at my favorite music festivals, Lost Lands and Bass Canyon. That is my main goal at this current point, so I’m gonna keep on pushing till we get there.
Party Guru Press: I’m sure with how focused you’ve been on your craft, that you’ll accomplish that with no problem. Is there any advice that you would like to pass on to anyone who’s trying to break into the scene or is just starting?
SLASHA: It’s insane what you can accomplish if you keep on pushing no matter what roadblocks you may face. It’s very surreal what you can control by working hard and never losing track of where you want to go. It’s not an overnight process, but you can take it day by day by working hard.
Party Guru Press: Besides Kansas City, do you have any upcoming shows that should be on everyone’s radar?
SLASHA: I’m actually playing the Black Box on April 27th for the WASTELVND takeover, and I’ll be performing a lot of new mixes with my most recent releases.
Party Guru Press: I’m sure we’ll be seeing you there and thanks again for your time, we’re very excited to see what the future has in store for you!
To Conclude Time Well Spent
Slasha showcased where hard work can take you as he was able to open up about the challenges that he’s recently overcome to get onto the map. It’s refreshing that we have faces like this in our music scene that acknowledge that it’s a process. For mostly everyone, it is not an overnight thing, which helps represent how hard work and dedication are needed to pursue this craft. Check out Slasha at the Black Box to see first-hand what he has been pushing himself for.
