Last Thursday evening Denver experienced bass like it has never experienced it before when acclaimed dub step DJ, Excision, took the stage at the Ogden Theater to perform a bass exorcism of epic proportions.
The bass was literally so heavy and so loud that the entire theater was shaking from the floor boards to the balcony…if your phone were to go off on vibrate, you definitely would NOT have noticed it ringing, that’s how heavy this ish was.
Liquid Stranger got things warmed up on the decks on what seemed to be an infantile table set up compared to Excision’s soon-to-be-revealed massive computer graphics wall which looked like 40 foot flames engulfing the stage (with cool graphics floating across them at all times of course).
Most notable for me were his remixes of the Star Wars “Imperial March” – aka Darth Vader’s theme song – and Prodigy’s “Voodoo People.” Looking at Darth Vader’s mask on the gargantuan CG screens turn into skulls with machine guns shooting fire was extremely entertaining to say the least, and I’m pretty sure the bass was so insanely loud that you couldn’t have stopped moving even if you tried.
There was also a track which I’m going to call “Head Banger” which was gangster with a capital “G.” I tried finding a decent version on youtube, but alas, my efforts were futile. You can find some festival-type/live versions if you want to check it out for yourself…dope ass track fo sho!
Did I mention the bass was loud??! Hahaha. Long story short the show was sick, and Excision brought the ominous bass-laden pain nonstop. I’ll leave you with a couple of tracks (one from Liquid Stranger and one from the Ex-man himself just to keep things interesting).
