Spring is known as the season of transformation and new beginnings - and that's exactly what New Something underwent over the past few months. Our hometown club, Supermoon Boulder, very sadly closed its doors back in April, which meant that our weekly residency finally came to a conclusion. Did that slow us down? Absolutely not! Since then, our team has been pushing the sounds and vibes of New Something harder than ever down in Denver at iconic venues such as Larimer Lounge, The Black Box, and Beacon. Read on for the full recap...
Supermoon was an incredible little venue in downtown Boulder, CO, which for a brief moment was the finest dance club to ever pop up in the college town. It was a place where we grew massively both as a collective and as individual artists - an open minded crowd of dance music lovers who embraced the eclectic and fresh sounds that we purvey. We're so grateful for Supermoon and the wonderful team behind it that made it such a special place that will live on in our hearts.
Following the sudden end of the era that was Supermoon, many of our artists began expanding their horizons into Denver's bubbling music scene. The first of these shows came in early April when mxxnwatchers and Weir took the stage at the Beacon to open for legendary organic house producer, Goldcap. It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon and many of our day one supporters showed up and made it a real family affair. Weir was on a crazy adventure that week, travelling to Baja, Mexico for a brief vacation, then to Utah for his second appearance at the sold out Syndicate Nightclub in Salt Lake City, and flew home the morning of the Beacon show to make it for his B2B! Whew, even typing all of that out was exhausting! Also, Tripleset and Amplified Visuals met up for some inspiring fun at Coachella Weekend 2.
Our first ever takeover event at the iconic Larimer Lounge in Denver took place only the day after the final night at Supermoon - a pretty bizarre coincidence in which one door closed and another one opened straight away. Playing for a maximum capacity crowd of well over 250 people, Mellisan, Tripleset and Derdy Harry threw down some incredible sets and left a mark on one of Denver's most famous music venues. The rest of the squad had a great time partying on stage, energy was at an all time high at Larimer.
In May, Tripleset made big moves in the burgeoning UKG scene here in Denver, opening as direct support for UKG royalty, Conducta, and a week later performing for 1000 students at Colorado College Music Festival. Then later in the month, FLYN, Weir and mxxnwatchers brought deep dark techno, tribal and melodic house to the Larimer Lounge for our second successful takeover night in Denver this Spring.
