Z-Trip brought the ruckus so damn hard for the Saturday night Terminal Kings festivities at City Hall. Surrounded by the art that will adorn the walls of Denver International Airport, party-goers most definitely got what they came for last night: The music phenom imbued City Hall with so much bass, it could have been measured by the Richter Scale. Extremely personable, Z-Trip seemed to be loving the music he played for the crowd -- as much as the elated audience. With lights flashing, pounding bass and every dope song combination you could imagine, the whole entire place was a party. Some were tempted to gawk at Z-trip's wonders but honestly, there wasn't a still body in the packed amphitheater. The transition from Rihanna's 'We Found Love," to Outkast's "Spottiottiedopelicious" was so smooth and succinct, when the horns came in there was a collective scream of euphoria heard echoing across the venue.
The atmosphere was incredible with all the art surrounding the dance floor, giving the show an ethereal feel. Z-trip was intimate with the crowd throughout the night saying he loves Colorado because "you guys show me so much love," his voice booming over applause and cheers.
