Zomboy Brings A Heavy Set To Mission Ballroom
Zomboy, recently brought his unique and heavy sound to Denver’s Mission Ballroom. Joining him was Space Laces, Akeos, and Bruer. The supporting acts were fantastic, but the headliner didn’t disappoint either; here are some of my favorite highlights from the night.
Zomboy is an English dubstep producer and DJ from Worthing, United Kingdom. He released his first EP in 2011, with many more following including his EP “The Dead Symphonic” and Album “The Outbreak.” Zomboy has collaborated with other dubstep producers such as Skrillex and Doctor P and made official remixes for several big names in EDM including, Avicii, Bro Safari, Diplo, Porter Robinson and Kill The Noise. His next release will be another remix, teaming up with Flux Pavilion for his take on Childish Gambino’s “Heartbeat.” With over 9 million plays on YouTube already, Zomboy is proving to be one of Dubstep’s top artists around today.
For Zomboy‘s supporting artists, he brought Space Laces with a curated Vaultage set, Akeos and Bruer. There was no one inside the venue that did not enjoy this show. Mixes were on point and all genres were packed in sync with blinding lights and smoke machines. It seemed like every person jumped out their seat after dancing so hard. The beat of music bumped harder then ever before when Zomboy called for his signature Wall of Death. People took over the floor trying to get closer for a better view.
EDM lovers and strong dubstep fans made up most of the crowd. The ones who were there for Zomboy were in it to win it as they sang along and even headbanged during his songs. It was a mixed crowd that clearly enjoyed electronic music, but it seemed like more of them knew what was going on than those who don’t go out often or travel for events like these. There was no one in the crowd that didn’t seem to be enjoying themselves. Further, as Zomboy is one of Denver’s favorite EDM artists, the venue was packed from wall to wall.
The crowd showed up in mass and by 9pm there was little standing room throughout the venue. It seemed everyone came out ready to rage all night long since they didn’t stop moving while each artist played their set. By 11:00 pm, when Zomboy took the stage, it had been almost 4 hours since anyone really sat down. As expected, Zomboy opened with a heavy start and there was no one in the crowd that didn’t enjoy the set. I would strongly recommend that the next time Zomboy comes to town, that you travel to see his set!
