On July 2nd, 2015, Zeds Dead brought the bass to the Colorado crowd at Red Rocks Amphitheater for the second annual Dead Rocks event. With a lineup made up of some of the most notable names including Zeds Dead, Dillon Francis, Paper Diamond, Haywyre, and more, this year’s show made last year’s event look like a backyard house party. The Electric Sloth team had the amazing opportunity to cover this event at one of the most historic venues in the nation.

Although it  started pouring in the middle of Paper Diamond’s set, he still managed crush the crowd with a multitude of classics, as well as some new bangers to excite the crowd. Though there was a twenty-minute interruption because of the storm, Dillon Francis powered through with an hour long set including releases from his most recent project, This Mixtape is Fire and tracks from his former album, Money Sucks, Friends Rule.  The entire set had the crowd moving, but everything peaked when he dropped “Bruk Bruk” and “Not Butter.”

Once Zeds Dead came on, a variety of genres was played for an hour long set composed of euphoric visuals to fit the style of music that was performed. Not only did they fulfill the dark theme of the annual Dead Rocks, but also managed to play all of their releases, from their most popular dubstep to their newer house-influenced of music. The two talented performers enticed many as they showed their love of Red Rocks through their interactions with the crowd while playing “Collapse” and their remix of “Eyes on Fire.”  Zeds Dead performed a very powerful set filled with a little bit of everything, even to the extent of deep house. Along with their trippy visuals, lasers fired from the ghostly stage and were dancing across the rocks behind the crowd. Overall, the second annual Dead Rocks performance was one to remember. We hope to be able to spend another year with such an amazing crowd next year for Zeds Dead to once again bring the bass.
