The best EDM in Denver this weekend

JAMES HOLDEN @ NORAD | SAT, 10/11/13 James Holden has been a household name in tech house since 1999, when he released "Horizons" at the tender age of nineteen. Since then, he's gained recognition worldwide by launching the esteemed Border Community label in 2003 and using that platform to release increasingly interesting tracks that flirt with genre boundary lines. Holden has kept himself relevant with his ability to produce driving, melodic tracks that incorporate both machine-like and soulful elements, blending them seamlessly into a dance-floor extravaganza that leaves music lovers sweaty and blissed-out by the end of the night.

FRI & SAT | SONIC BLOSSOM at CERVANTES | 10/11-10/12 If getting lost in a sea of trance-inducing beats and out-of-this-world mixing is what you crave, look no further than Random Rab and Bluetech. Random Rab is proof that auditory stimulation in a large room full of dancing people can evoke emotion like no other, while Bluetech has been creating music for over a decade that challenges listeners to think outside the box and work towards changing the world as a whole. In addition to Random Rab and Bluetech, this edition of Sonic Blossom is stacked with the likes of Kaminanda, Desert Dwellers, Janover & reSUNator, Late Night Radio, Marvel Years, the Malah, Skytree, Cualli and Papa Skunk. -- Britt Chester
