Hard to believe it's been five years since we started ELCO. We've grown a little since then but the mission has always remained the same: provide the best fans with a comprehensive and reliable news, events, and media resource for all things dance music in our state and beyond. We hope you've gained at least a little something from our efforts and that you'll join us and some of Denver's best local artists in celebrating the truly special community that we have here.

— Aaron Bordas Music
Who better to headline the night than 2016's #1 DJ in Colorado, as voted on by Electronic Colorado readers?
«Colorado native Aaron Bordas is one of a rising breed of young DJs and producers permeating the vibrant electronic music scene. Inspired by a rooted love for house and deep tech, he delivers a unique sound all his own cultivated by an unrelenting dedication to quality and technical mastery that easily sets him apart from the fray.
Aaron's distinctive sets seamlessly fuse dark and deep bass lines with sophisticated and spiritual melodies, creating a fluid storyline that transcends time and space and evokes a euphoric auditory experience into the next dimension.
Aaron has provided direct support for house heavy-hitters including Jeremy Olander, Duke Dumont, Claude VonStroke, Justin Martin and Tensnake, among others, firmly establishing himself as a serious force to reckon with behind the decks.»
We convinced one of our all-time favorite Colorado artists to get the band back together and come out of retirement for this special night!
«The brainchild of Night Supply Records label manager Matty Night and longtime Denver club fixture Scott Armstrong, Action 52 serve their music to pull a wry smile and a rocking hip wiggle from their listeners. Behind a fun-loving 80’s sci-fi concept taking its name from the fitting and congruently titled, ultra-rare, NES platformer and years of combined skill behind the decks and inside of their gadgetry strewn studio; Action 52 is a testament to the Night Supply brand’s essence of style meeting substance. Students of the dance scene since their days in high-school basements crafting waxy sets on Technic SL1200’s, their sound is one combining a resonant house backbone with shades of disco, indie, jazz and hip-hop; of course painted with the glossy tinge of a gritty neon, late 80’s arcade. Although currently sitting with only three released remixes under their belts; one each for Ludacris, Galantis and Chromatics, with their „Smile“ remix making an appearance in the Top #25 overall Hype Machine charts along with a peak at #6 with their take on „How Low“, the enigmatic duo has had the opportunity to ply their sound in support of Malaa, Goldroom, Shiba San, The Knocks, Cassian, Dusky, Kaytranada, Viceroy, Twin Shadow, Touch Sensitive and loads more since officially embarking on their galaxy spanning journey.»
