Well, it finally happened! Red Rocks is now up and running. Starting with a bunch of EDM shows, like the one I saw on May 12th with Grammy-nominated EDM duo Sidepiece

The 2 members Ricky Mears (aka Nitti Gritti) and Dylan Ragland (aka Party Favor) provide an exciting brand of Electronic Dance Music that not only got them nominated for a grammy but also landed them an opening spot on tour with EMD superstar Diplo.

The Grammy nomination came for collaborating with Diplo on a song with over 100 million streams on Spotify called On my Mind, for Best Dance Record – something that’s proven ultra-hard to do these days without live shows and touring (Thanks, COVID). Take listen below:

Sidepiece & Diplo: “On My Mind”

Sidepiece: “Temptation”

Check them out when you have a chance. They also have a track called “Temptation” with over 2 million Spotify streams :

Sidepiece also just released “Acrobatic” with Insomniac Records, which will show you why they had a chance to open for Diplo at Red Rocks. Enjoy!
