To close out The Other Side, we’re getting treated this week with a full-throttle B2B featuring Ujuu and JORDNMOODY! With a catalog featuring several heavy-hitting collaborations between the two, we expect to see that energy come to life on stage. The duo also worked with other aspiring artists including Wreckno and Wiley!

Balancing Act

In the Masterpiece Ballroom, SHIFT is in for a treat with a broad scope of producers making a name for themselves today. Kicking it off, Common Creation comes to us from Atlanta with perhaps one of the best blends of bass and retro influence we’ve heard in some time.

While representing Denver, Green Matter brings a sound fresh from another planet. Creating infectious energy that sets crowds off their feet will be sure to get the crowd ready to go all night. In the spirit of Halloween, Sharlitz Web fills the void for those looking for that spooky sound.

Before the finale, Redrum will bring SHAPESHIFT back to planet Earth just in time for an ethereal experience allowing attendees a fresh breath of air.


Rounding out the evening, highly anticipated MIZE makes his way to Cervantes after a jam-packed 2021 schedule. Break-out performances at Lost Lands, Sound Haven, and Resonance Music Festival had social media buzzing fueling the fire for the climbing artist. His love for the classics shines through in his performances with memorable acapellas and signature selections.

While the temperatures are dropping, we’re just getting heated up! Don’t forget to catch a breath of fresh air on the patio, with vendors and a silent disco from 9-12. Announcements for 2022 are soon to come!
