For those who've been along for the ride, it probably seems like it was just yesterday that TheHundred, Denver's premier non-profit monthly house music dance party, filled the dance floor for the first time. Now six months later, TheHundred is here to stay, and is celebrating the only way TheHundred knows how - with another amazing party. Over the past half year, the TheHundred has thrown packed-out events at Beauty Bar by bringing in up and coming talent, along with presenting a handful of other wildly successful shows around town. In celebration of TheHundred's six month anniversary, the formula stays the same, which means people who come to this event are in for one incredible night.
This month's headliner is Bit Funk, a Brooklyn based producer and DJ brought to Denver for the first time by TheHundred. No stranger to the game, Bit Funk's handle of synth-laden disco and indie dance has taken his talents from coast to coast to various clubs and festival showcases and has had his tracks featured on major dance labels like Hed Kandi and Defected. His style is well suited to perpetuate the good vibe and groove atmosphere that has become synonymous with TheHundred. Check out Bit Funk's rework of Rachel Lamb's "Electricity".
TheHundred's founder and resident DJ at Lipgloss, Denver's "Best Dance Institution" (Westword) will lay down a couple sets to kick the party off and keep the heat going later in the night. At the beginning of the night, option4 will keep things smooth and sexy with an early deep house set to get the crowd in the mood. Then when the party is in full swing, option4 will put together a house set to keep the sweat flowing. Check out option4's latest mixtape, "The Movement Vol. 1".
Not only does TheHundred import talent from across the country and beyond, TheHundred supports the local scene as well. Two of the local supporting acts are making return appearances to TheHundred, and as members of TheHundred themselves they know exactly what to deliver in their sets. Expect Jinro (who just may be writing this in the third person) and Collin McKenna to put together groovy house and nu-disco that'll get the crowd working the dance floor. Roger That, now back in Denver after a stint in Berlin, will get things going with a deep house set of his own. Check out mixes from each of these three down below.
The party starts at the Beauty Bar at 9:00PM and will go straight up to closing time. The event is 21+ and tickets are only $6 at the door. You'll want to get to this party early if you don't want to be stuck outside, because TheHundred is known to take the Beauty Bar to capacity.
