Los Angeles-based producer Tsuruda has been on a hot streak in 2023.
He kicked off the year with an official remix for the legends NOISIA with “Asteroids.” He released a four-track EP on Deadbeats, Deathwish. Even more, he has put out three extended mixtapes exclusively on Bandcamp. Lost Tapes (a collection of bangers), Eye of the Storm (a mix of chill beats), and bootlegs n stuff (which is exactly what the title suggests).
To top off this intensely productive year, Tsuruda is now on tour! Denver fans can catch Tsuruda headlining the Shift Thursdays series at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom on July 6th. Be there to hear a taste of all his fresh material!
More on Tsuruda
Thomas Tsuruda is the man behind the madness. He has had a long and storied career since his debut in 2014. Major figures in dance music have stood behind him, which led to releases with NOISIA’s Division Recordings, Alix Perez’s 1985 Music, and the experimental L.A. label Alpha Pup. Longtime fans may even know about Tsuruda’s alter ego, a side project called Cousin Litt.
Over the years, the hallmark of Tsuruda’s music has been his diverse sound. Tsuruda is a true experimenter. He explores a wide range from dubstep, trap, and halftime to deconstructed club, house, and IDM. Sometimes, he pushes to the edges of dance music with beats that defy tempo and groove altogether. Other times, he shows off his California roots with strong West Coast hip-hop influences. Tsuruda’s show will take you on a journey across these realms.
Tsuruda Takes Cervantes
SHIFT Thursdays is a weekly EDM series produced by Cervantes and River Beats. It will be the perfect place for Tsuruda to unleash his multi-genre approach to electronic music.
Tsuruda will be headlining alongside friends and collaborators. True to his roots, Tsuruda has chosen a mix of the West Coast’s bests and Denver’s own artists. He’s bringing Portland-based DJ Noer the Boy to show off his glitchy flare. Another West Coaster, Asáu from Seattle, will open the night. To round out the lineup, Denver-based producers Gangus and Basura will bring the bass music that this city knows and loves.
The best part of a Tsuruda show is that you never know what flavor he’ll be dishing out. This DJ is true to his Twitter bio, which reads “No genre is safe.” Secure your tickets to Cervantes here and prepare for whatever type of magic Tsuruda will bring on July 6th.
