Eureka! We Struck Festival Gold at Arizona’s Goldrush 2019

Dr. Fresch at Goldrush 2019

Yee-haw Cowpokes, Goldrush is back in town! Relentless Beats‘ 3rd annual Goldrush returned to Rawhide Western Town and Event Center for two days this past September 27-28, 2019. The event boasted four stages, 40+ musical acts and several individual experiences ranging from General Admission to Platinum VIP, which included private meet and greets, complimentary drinks, steakhouse dinner, raised viewing deck, front-row viewing, air-conditioned bathrooms, gift bag, and chances to hang with your favorite artists in the Platinum Lounge.

Located just outside Phoenix, the venue provided the perfect backdrop for this western-themed festival. The quaint American frontier replica town combined with the mechanical bull amplified the feeling of the Wild West and invited participants to join the theme. The jail housed partner GreenPharms, a medical dispensary, where attendees had the chance to pick up some killer swag, get a picture taken while locked in the jail cell, or sign up to win an Arizona medical card for a year. The shooting gallery was free to play and would catch a few festival goers who were changing stages or looking for a way to kill time before the next act. Keeping true to the theme, attendees could be seen rocking everything from cowboy boots and chaps to light-up fuzzy coats and nothing but glitter.

Although Goldrush is a relatively new festival, the lineup was nothing short of impressive. Some noteworthy acts from the weekend included a sax heavy set from Zhu, vibrant visuals from Oliver Heldens, straight up filth and grime from Shlump and a bass blow-out from retired NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal, performing as DJ Diesel. The 7’1’ DJ Diesel joined the crowd toward the end of his set and moshed alongside festival goers and even lifted a rail-riding 5ft girl into the air like she was a paper doll. DJ Diesel also made a point to meet, shake hands, exchange hugs, and grab a few quick selfies with festival goers after he climbed out of the mosh pit and walked backstage. His set seemed to be a crowd favorite and even Dr. Fresch was spotted on stage during Shaq’s set dancing around and hyping up the crowd while wearing a sombrero.

The visuals were intense with many amazing light and video productions, but what was really breathtaking were the views from the venue of the natural landscape and mountain sunsets. It was blissful to be vibing along to great music while watching the sun disappear behind the Phoenix mountains.

Don’t forget to shine those boots and we will catch you cowpokes at next year’s hoedown!

Decadence AZ Releases 2018 After-Movie

Decadence 2018 After-Movie Teaser

Phoenix, AZ – After a record setting year for Arizona’s leading dance music and EDM promoter, which included Phoenix Lights christen a new venue, the return of 2017’s best received new festival, Goldrush, and the introduction of RBDeep’s ORIGINS, it was the final two days of the year that saw Relentless Beats greatest success of 2018. As Decadence Arizona started to come together, it was apparent that this was not going to be just another New Year’s celebration- that the team who brings fans over 300 events a year was ending the year in grand style. Artists such as Skrillex; Porter Robinson; Eric Prydz; Above & Beyond; Marshmello; Rezz; and the big man who ushered in 2019, DJ Diesel, populated a lineup that was a fitting close to a roller coaster of a year.

In celebration of a successful 2018, Relentless Beats tapped Phoenix-based Thrill Wave Productions to capture Decadence Arizona and transport fans back into the momentous event. Taking a somewhat unique approach, the Thrill Wave team used three separate editors to create the video as they saw Decadence Arizona through their own eyes and pulling it all together for one singular story. Each of the three tracks: the unreleased “Lick U” by Blossom, “Vestal Avenue” by San Holo and “Control” by Ghastly provide the soundtrack to the after-movie and allow each editor their own unique space visually. What comes together is a video that not only transports fans back to Decadence, it takes them on a journey through heart-thumping bass, high-energy bouncing and chilled out bliss of the night. The editors explain their thought process below.

“I just really wanted to help the fan relive the moment and if you weren’t part of it- the desire will be there for the next year,” says Thrill Wave and Act 01 editor Javier Mejiava. “I also wanted to create the feeling that you’ll want to keep pressing replay and going back.”

“We wanted this act to break up the high energy pace of the first act and really slow things down,” says Thrill Wave and Act 02 editor Tony Swann. “People tend to get very in touch with themselves emotionally at big EDM shows, especially like Decadence for New Year’s Eve. There is a lot of energy, lot’s of good vibes, and people are having an experience. I think capturing all of this in slow motion gives the viewer a sense of depth and warmth. The video suddenly slows down and you feel like you are having a moment in your head, which is much like being at the actual show. People chase moments and when that moment hits everything slows down and you bask in the euphoria.”

“The final portion of the after-movie can be described as controlled chaos. I wanted to showcase how large the audience was by using big, steady and long establishing shots, then cutting to short bursts of chaos, much like the behavior amongst the crowd and talent,” explains Thrill Wave and Act 03 editor Leah Semeniuk. “This created a nice juxtaposition between the two paces, as well as the previous sections done by other editors.”

Decadence Arizona is produced by Relentless Beats and Global Dance. The after-movie was made possible by our partners at Dancing Astronaut & Wild Horse Pass.
