Detroit house legend Rick Wade made his Colorado debut thanks to Deep Club and the Playground. Accompanied by fitting acts like Roger That & John Tyler, DJ Drew, and Ponyrok, the balanced show played well into the next morning.

Hosted at 1010 Workshop in the Baker district, this intimate venue was an ideal setting for the dedicated deep house fans that came out from the woodwork for this Detroit legend. Hours of underground house kept people shuffling in a hazy basement, where all lights except the glow of old TV sets and lights over the record stacks were discouraged. It was impossible not to get lost in the seamless sets as Rick Wade’s driving basslines and disco samples tend to encourage.

The commitment to playing music for music’s sake and the authenticity of a (literally) underground show combined beautifully with a crowd that came ready to dance all night. We hope that Rick Wade returns to Denver soon to keep the grooves coming.
