After 11 Years, Beta Nightclub To Close In 2019

One of Denver’s lit up and volatile nightclubs is set to get its fire extinguished. After 11 years, Beta Nightclub will be shutting its doors on January 5, 2019. For years, the digital dance music (EDM) venue drew massive celebrities, from Deadmau5 into Armin Van Buren, to the tune of lasers, smoke cannons and deafening bass. At one point dubbed one of the top 25 best clubs of all time by Billboard Magazine, in addition to taking the number one spot for dancing clubs in America by Rolling Stone at 2013, the loss of the place doesn’t just alter the dance community, but Denver as a whole.  Beta Nightclub was the destination to listen to cutting-edge digital music by the hottest up and comers in addition to the special opportunities to catch the pros in relatively close quarters. Citing the need to take time and recalibrate, Beta has decided to bid farewell.

While not cited in their official parting announcement, one cannot deny that Temple Nightclub, brand new to town, embodied their eyesight “club culture evolving” far better than Beta had in the past couple of years. Coupled with the abundance of similarily EDM-focused clubs lining South Broadway — in one place — that the decline of Beta was only a matter of time. The closing perhaps even caught many at Beta off-guard, as they had several shows lined up into 2019, such as Arty, Luca Lush plus also a rare live performance for its elusive Danger. Likewise, while January 5 has been deemed the official closing date, the last events have not yet been announced.

While there’s no word on what will finally fill Beta’s space, whatever it is, has got a great deal to live up to.

Slander & Crankdat Throw Down with Metal Heavyweights Asking Alexandria for new Track “Kneel Before Me”

Get ready for the pit with this one!

Slander and Crankdat went back to their metal roots with their latest heavy-hitting track. Titled “Kneel Before Me”, this rail-breaking bass and metal crossover features none other than the legendary metal band Asking Alexandria. 

Not often do you get to hear a metal band of this calibier collaborate with some of the biggest bass music artists in the game.  

Asking Alexandria frontman Danny Worsnop leads the charge with some ominous vocals preparing listeners for the chaos that is about to ensue. 

Then it happens. The song breaks into absolute madness and listeners are battered with a fury of bass and metal vocals. Slander and Crankdat bring the bass while Asking Alexandria injects energy you can only get from a metal show. The result is a song that should be played with caution. Putting this one on might cause spontaneous mosh pits to occur. 

We spoke with Slander and asked them what it was like to work with a band that they admire so much. In their own words: 

“In high school indie rock and hardcore music were some of the first sounds we ever dove into as teenagers. Bands like Avenge Sevenfold, Underoath, Taking Back Sunday, and Asking Alexandria, could be heard blaring from our car speakers in our respective high school parking lots. This kind of music is in our core and is where a lot of our other tastes developed from, so if you can imagine we where thrilled when Asking Alexandria agreed to be a part of our new song with Crankdat! Our goal with this song was to make our own rendition of hardcore music with dubstep at its core, essentially bringing our musical roots into 2018! Hope you guys dig it!”

Kneel Before Me is out now via Monstercat.

Review — Not Even A Blackout Could Keep CHVRCHES From Shining At The Ogden

For a while there, it was uncertain whether the CHVRCHES show at the Ogden Monday night would go on as planned. A flash rainstorm had rendered the theater without power minutes before doors were set to open, leaving scores of fans snaked around the block. Anticipation remained palpable, however, as the many diehards waited out the uncertainty hoping the odds would be in their favor to catch the Scottish synth-pop band. With bated breath, eventually their efforts were rewarded and the theater kicked back into gear as CHVRCHES served as a beacon through the blackout.

Shimmering in the synth-wave fissures of the percolating lights, the band had the crowd in their palm of their hand — who was shouting back the group’s lyrics and pummeling the floor with their feet. Mayberry would strut the stage, spinning amidst the retro-sounding commotion encouraging the crowd to sing louder and move harder. Switching off with Martin Doherty for a couple songs, namely “God’s Plan” and “Under the Tide,” the two were in sync, and served to ramp up the audience’s hype even more. With a musical palate that seemed to be endlessly ascending and genuinely positive, CHVRCHES assured that any uneasiness that existed before had been erased and that there was in fact, a light at the end of the tunnel.
