We’re starting off the month with Smoakland, the West Coast duo known for their high-energy freestyle sets that have quickly become favorites in Denver’s vibrant dubstep scene. Their recent Smoak Sesh EP and heavy-hitting collab with Ravenscoon “Never Heard of Ya” proves the duo only continues to master their craft. Formerly providing support for artists like Mersiv, Zeds Dead, and Liquid Stranger, we’re excited to watch them perform a headlining set at SHIFT on the first of the month. Support for this show includes UK-based DirtySnatcha and Stooki Sound, and Denver’s Venture 5, and Tesla Nikole.

Next up we’re looking forward to welcoming an entire lineup of female dubstep producers on December 8th. A fast-rising star in the scene, Maryland-based Zingara already has several major festivals under her belt including Lost Lands, the inaugural Voyage to the Caverns, and Bass Canyon to name a few. Zingara has created her own genre she aptly named “astral trap” which blends cosmic and trap sounds into beautiful and unique music. Austeria, who has most recently supported Subtronics, Peekaboo, and Level Up on nationwide tours, will be supporting along with local Denver talents Solfire and Soundkissed.

Finally, we’re closing out an amazing year of SHIFT shows with a special Denver debut set from Jon Casey and Chee’s side project It Hz on December 15th. The experimental bass duo from South Africa has been busy in 2022 after playing their debut set in May at The Untz festival in California. Nic Baker — a side project of Philadelphia-based artists Vide and Inspect3r — will be here to support Molokai, Chromonicci, and Imperivm. 

And if you aren’t feeling bass, on December 15 you can also catch Bad Snacks w/ CARRTOONS & Mcwavy, LXSH via The Other Side.
