On Saturday, May 16 British DJ Dave Tipper will be bringing his psychedelic sound to Red Rocks Amphitheater. With his unique mix of glitch-hop, glitch-step and downtempo psychedelic music Tipper promises to play one of the most unique sets you will ever see at Red Rocks. With him he brings a sound system that promises to rock the Rocks with over 100 db of pure, unadulterated bass.
It is not only Tipper’s music that will be drawing people from all over to this show, he brings with him a visual feast for the eyes. This includes one of the most unique and beautiful light shows in the music world run by the talented live visual mixologist Johnathan Singer. Someone who takes just as much pride in his craft as any DJ you will find. Though it is not only the visual art of Johnathan Singer that Tipper brings to Red Rocks. Along with him comes the performance troupe QUIXOTIC, electro-mineralist Android Jones and visual artists Alex and Allyson Grey.
QUIXOTIC is a melting pot of dance, aerial acrobatics, projection mapping, high fashion, and original live music. The fantastic digital artist Android Jones who, in his own words, “takes up emergent technologies that are crystalline, metallic, electronic and digital in their materiality and aesthetic feel, implicating a historical scheme that echoes the integral view of planetary evolution from physiosphere to biosphere to noosphere to theosphere; where the techno-media of exhibition artworks have been by and large, bound to or associated with the biologic.” His work includes multiple pieces that he made especially for Tipper, that match his personalized sound with the trippy colors and style. Last but certainly not least we have the artist couple Alex and Allyson Grey who will be doing a live painting throughout the night. Their self proclaimed spiritual and psychedelic art will match perfectly with the sounds of Tipper, not to mention expand your mind just as much as the music. This show promises to be more than just a normal Red Rocks concert. It will be an artistic experience for the mind, body and soul that you truly will have to see to believe.
