This past Saturday, January 23rd, Terravita brought the Bass to the Fox Theatre in Boulder, CO. It was the final stop on Terravita’s “Smoke Colorado” run, which also made stops in Denver, Colorado Springs, and Fort Collins, Colorado. Along for the ride was supporting talent Jayceeoh and Mantis.
Kicking off the night was Los Angeles native, Jayceeoh. For an up and comer, he has quite the resume, as he has played in clubs all over the world. He got the crowd moving by dropping classic dubstep tunes by artists like Bassnectar, Datsik, and more as well as some material of his own.
Next up was Mantis, a heavy hitting dubstep artist out of Atlanta, Georgia. By the time Mantis took the stage the intimate venue began to fill. Everyone was dancing and banging their heads along to Mantis’ flawless transitions. The energy was explosive, making everyone in the room move to the grimey drops and heavy basslines.
Finally Terravita took the stage, immediately immersing the crowd in filthy wobbles. By this time the venue was packed; everyone was dancing and dripping with sweat. No one showed any signs of stopping. Unfortunately, less than half way through the set Terravita had an equipment malfunction, making it so he wasn’t able to change the beats per minute of the tracks he played. He was stuck in 175 BPM for the remainder of the set, an incredibly fast pace, especially for a dubstep artist that usually plays tracks around the 138-142 BPM range. Terravita did not disappoint and dropped many favorites, both new and old including a sample of Bassnectar’s “The Matrix” and Doctor P’s “Going Gorillas.” Towards the end of the set, Jayceeoh came in to help fix the problem and played back to back with Terravita for the remaining 15 minutes. Despite the technical issues, Terravita played one hell of a set that had the entire Fox Theatre head banging along to the beat.
