The best EDM in Denver this weekend

Once upon a time, it was enough for a DJ to weave a spell on the dance floor, but those days are long gone. Now, anyone dabbling in electronic music had better have some serious chops as a producer. And when it comes to production, Alex Metric is one of the finest acts currently on the scene. He's released dozens of original tracks that have been recorded and released by such illustrious organiza-tions as Ministry of Sound and BBC Radio 1, and he's also well known for his remix action, having created new versions of tracks by such disparate artists as Depeche Mode, Phoenix and Ellie Goulding. But the man's no slouch when it comes to mixing up his own sets, either, as evidenced by his recent world tour; he's been scorching dance floors from Singapore to Sydney to Miami. And now it's Denver's turn. Tomorrow night, Metric teams up with Destructo for what is sure to be an unforgettable night.
