What A Long, Strange Z-Trip It’s Been 

Wednesday at 5:54PM on March 18, 2009

The Mile High City used to be famous for snow-capped peaks and killer skiing, and in some people's minds it still is. But those aren't the people paying attention to slamming night life, cheap drinks, and booming sound systems. Because the people in this latter camp know that Denver is fast snowballing a solid street rep as a place to party till the sun comes up. And a key contributor to this transitioning civic image is the Beta Nightclub on Blake Street. They've got Funktion One sound, state of the art LED installations, green lasers, massive HD screens, tons of parking (valet and otherwise), and VIP options. And, lest we not forget, on April 10th Beta will play host to mash-up originator Z-Trip. Since the party is landing on a Friday the bash will take place as one of their ‘Noise' nights, which is a new movement fusing indie, pop, electronica and nu disco. What does this mean to you, the average attendee? The place will be packed to the rafters with shiny, happy people. Join the gang.


Born with the non-DJ name of Zach Sciacca in Queens, NY, Z-Trip first started laying down the foundations of his stellar musical rep in Phoenix, AZ, as part of the Bombshelter Crew with DJ Radar. He started dropping loads of wildly unique mixes – including one in the highly regarded Future Primitive Soundsession series – and eventually hit his peak with 2001's Uneasylistening Vol. 1, which was a collaboration with DJ P. The mix made even the most jaded dance music ears take heed, as it “mashed up” unlikely pairings such as Del Tha Funkee Homosapien and Phil Collins, or Run-D.M.C. and b. It was weird; it ruled.


These days Z-Trip is commonly heralded as a visionary of the mash-up movement, landing coveted opening slots for the Rolling Stones, headlining the Bonaroo festival two years running, headlining the Good Vibrations festival in Australia, rocking Coachella, etc. Whether spinning to an intimate private club crowd or 500,000 Mick Jagger fanatics, Z-Trip intuits the mass vibe and kicks out the appropriate jams. His major label debut, Shifting Gears, hit the streets in 2005 and instantly won tons of acclaim, even scoring a Top 20 hit with “Walking Dead” (featuring Chester Bennington of Linkin Park). His career's on a relentlessly steady rise, and it shows no signs of leveling off. Come get noisy at Beta.
