Decadence AZ Phase 2

This New Year just landed a huge upgrade with fresh additions to the year’s greatest party. Relentless Beats and Global Dance have outdone themselves again, bringing in the hottest talent alive to make the experience as wild and fantastic as humanly possible.

New Additions

We now get to look forward to an unforgettable night with Griztronics, a special collaboration between Subtronics and Griz. With this special back-to-back, we can expect a twist from Griz back to his Dubstep roots. Tag-teamed with Subtronics’ experimental low-end sound it should be a tasty treat.

That’s just the beginning to the new additions, we will also be welcoming to the stage EDM legends Zeds Dead to curate a ride full of intensity and emotion that few can deliver as gracefully as these two men. 

The Swedish duo Christan Karlsson and Linus Eklow, otherwise known as Galantis, will also be joining the party.  Galantis explores a range of musical styles, from Techno to House with Pop and Jazz influences. For anyone who hasn’t seen them, it is hard to describe their sets as anything but fun! Last time I saw the duo I just couldn’t stop smiling; it’s just that kind of music. 

Next on the list let’s talk about Joyryde. The name really does a great job summing up the vibe. If I were to be driving around some sweet stolen whips, you better believe I’d be bumping Joyryde.  As he says himself, “For best results, Install sub woofer in vehicle, Invite friends & Gas Pedal, Gas Pedal, Gas Pedal.” I have to agree and I’m looking forward to the ride.

Underground Artists

With so many new additions it’s difficult to give each artist the credit they deserve. I’m happy to see some recently underground musicians making their way to such a renowned platform as Decadence.  Artists like G-Jones who has been blowing up the scene with his Ineffable Truth tour this year. As well as Whipped Cream who is delightfully experimental with huge sound design that does not disappoint. If you are looking to hear something new be sure to check her out.  Space Jesus will be making his appearance, as well, to bless us with wonky Bass jams.

That’s not even the end of it, either! There’s so much more talent to be heard this December 30 and 31.  The full line up is listed below:

Decadence Founders

Decadence is brought to you by Relentless Beats. This company strives to provide its fans with the best overall experience. By opening up a public survey, show goers had their voices heard. Receiving an overwhelming response, much of which was a continuation of conversations with fans since the close of 2018, Relentless Beats has begun utilizing the feedback to create the best Decadence yet. Ways to improve the guest experience have already been implemented. These include increased flooring and dedicated walkways at and between the stages, additional entry and exit gates at the main stage, as well as a reconfigured and improved VIP experience, that will create better flow and shorter wait times, and increased chill stations and staffed water resources.

“As a company, it has always been our intent to improve Decadence year after year,” says Relentless Beats founder Thomas Turner. “I have read each comment, and I hear the fans loud and clear. Decadence will continue to grow, as will my team to make sure the fan experience is what people have come to expect from us.”

Arizona Basks in Bass: BASSRUSH MASSIVE Returns for Another Year

Brought to you by Relentless Beats, Insomniac Events and BASSRUSH, this event was sure to bring the heat. For its third year of BASSRUSH MASSIVE ARIZONA, this year certainly did not disappoint.

Taking place at Rawhide Events Center, this venue made for a beautiful day leading into the night. With temperatures staying in the mid 90’s late into the night, it made for a perfect night to party. With PK Sound, the music was sure to be heard for miles to come. Different amenities were offered for concert-goers to make this an enjoyable experience. This included including water stations, food/drink tents, merch booths, and even a truck that just blows cold air. Housing other big name events such as Decadence Arizona, Goldrush Arizona and Crush, this venue is no stranger to showing their crowd a great time.

Arizona Witnesses the Bass Music

MIKE DAO b2b bigstabes started the night off big, featuring a few new singles from both of the artists. SHARPS was then on after, performing his debut show that night, with also recently moving to Arizona. Zeke Beats kept things interesting, live scratching as he played some of his most popular songs. As the night continued, Mastadon, who is now known as MARAUDA, brought the perfect mixture of metal and heavy bass. Riot Ten showed love to the fans after his set, coming down to the pit for pictures and autographs.

Herobust was excited to be back in Arizona, playing all of the crowd favorites. His set included his insanely popular single “WTF”. Continuing through the night Black Tiger Sex Machine showed the audience something different, starting with their visuals into hard hitting bass into house. Black Tiger Sex Machine, also known as BTSM, recently graced the stage at Global Dance Festival in Colorado as well. The performances at both festivals were equally captivating. Ending the night right, Flux Pavilion made certain to bring it all. While a few of the performers were back on this stage for another year, the new debuting DJs weren’t shy of anything of a great performance.

Overall BASSRUSH MASSIVE Experience

As the heat continued on throughout the night, the venue had helpful attendees walking around with spray bottles making sure to keep the crowd cool. The music took place in a giant barn while most of the food, drink and merch tents were outside, which made it nice for a natural cool off after sets. Hotels nearby weren’t an issue, nor was finding delicious restaurants to eat at, this venue was prime location for an event anytime of the year.
