SHIFT Thursdays are packing an insane amount of talent into the year’s shortest month. From heavy bass to live instrumentation, February’s schedule has got a little bit of everything,
First up, on 2/1, we welcome SubDocta to the main ballroom for a stop on his “Left for Dead” tour. His latest EP, which is the same name as the tour, was released on January 19th and features heavy-hitting collaborations with Xotix, Hairitage, and MYTHM. Digital Ethos, Kyral X Banko, and Braxx will open.
Next up, on the 8th, keyboardist and producer Jason Leech lands on Welton Street. The talented instrumentalist first rose to fame with his skillful keyboard covers of popular EDM songs and has since opened for artists like GRiZ and Manic Focus. The Gradient Perspective live band – featuring Josh Teed, ST4RFOX, Phyphr, ZONE Drums, and Choppy Oppy – is on as direct support with Stickybuds and Waxcat opening things up.

On the 15th, we welcome legendary bass artist Moody Good back to Denver for the first time in four years. The dubstep artist has long been recognized for his production chops and in 2014, won Best Album in the Bass Music Awards. He’s released music on Deadbeats and OWSLA and has worked alongside massive artists like Skrillex. Rohaan, Bianca Oblivion, and WonkyWilla will open.
On the 22nd, Canadian bass producer Canabliss will take the stage on the Other Side.
The rising producer had a busy year in 2023 with notable appearances at Shambhala, Lightning in a Bottle, and a massive support slot for Liquid Stranger at the sold-out Wakaan Rocks. This time, it’s her turn to headline with Hallucinate, Solfire, and Lowtyde holding down support.
Finally, we close out the month on the 29th with the Qualia showcase. The label, formed in 2023, first debuted at the Untz Festival in California and features a variety of bass artists from around North America. For their second Colorado showcase at Cervantes for SHIFT Thursday, the label will feature DAGGZ, Lowcation, Saturna, Phurn, and Comisar.
