Red Bull Music Presents: United States of Bass. On December 13th, 2018, Red Bull Music Presents a celebration of bass sounds from across the country at Cervantes’ Masterpiece in Denver, CO. Taking over both rooms of the iconic venue (The Ballroom and The Other Side), Red Bull Music is bringing together the pioneers and trailblazers of America’s most influential regional bass music styles from the East Coast, West Coast and Midwest for an unforgettable night in Denver.

The lineup features DJ Craze (Miami), Daddy Kev (Los Angeles), UNIIQU3 (New Jersey), Jubilee (Miami), Dieselboy (New York), Arabian Prince (Los Angeles), DJ Deeon (Chicago), and DJ Taye (Chicago). Additionally, Red Bull Music has curated set takeovers from four of Denver’s most exciting crews, VIBeRATION, Souls in Action, Sub.mission, and Recon DNB, each representing their own distinct genre within bass.

Nicole Cacciavillano, founder of Sub.Mission, explains, “Denver is the bass capital of America…The amazing thing about this city, is that in each genre of bass, we have incredible teams running things properly and doing it for the music. It is inspiring being a part of a city that is always pushing things forward.” Valerie Molano, of VIBeRATION, doubles down on this sentiment, stating, “Denver is a huge hub for electronic music because of the support in the community for talent and good music. There’s a lot of love and educated bass heads in this city and it’s attracting people from all over the nation and the world.”

The Cool Kids Headline February 17th Red Bull Sound Select Presents: Denver Support via Red Bull Sound Select Artist River Tiber and local act The Reminders

The Cool Kids are definitely one of those acts that inspired a lot of the modern sound being permeated on rap airwaves. In the mid-2000s, members Sir Michael Rocks and Chuck Inglish blazed an innovative retro-rap aesthetic that can now be seen in artists as diverse as Chance the Rapper and Joey BadA$$. This will be the Illinois duo’s first show in the market in 4+ years after reuniting late last year.  Not to be outdone, both River Tiber (the Toronto native who has garnered rave reviews from Pitchfork) and Colorado’s own The Reminders (they’ve shared the stage with the likes of Snoop Dogg and KRS-One) are Sound Select acts worthy of your attention on a “I saw them before they broke big” level. Not familiar?

WHERE: Summit Music Hall - 1902 Blake St, Denver, CO 80202
TICKETS: Guests can RSVP to Red Bull Sound Select for $5 entry. Without RSVP, tickets are $15 at the door. Event is 18+
