Oh, I have a lot of thoughts about this, but mainly I just wanted to say this: Unless you’re paying attention to what is going on with deep house right now, your are missing out on where the excitement and interesting stuff is going on right now.
Deep house is the where the real good shit is at right now.
Mainly just putting them here so I don’t lose them!

Stuff like this annoys me a bit because people selectively choose some of our lamest musical artists to put on these lists.
Sure, we can’t really compete with all of the grunge artists of the 90s, and sure we have some really lame musical artists from here (looking at you kip winger) but, did you know we have one of the most vibrant, varied and I feel one of the best EDM scenes in US? In fact, we have the number one club in North America right here in Denver; Beta Nightclub. Artists like Pretty Lights (from Ft. Collins, nominated for a grammy this year) and his entire label (mostly peeps from CO) are shit hot right now. Ignoring EDM in Denver, especially considering how it’s blown up in the mainstream over the past two years is ignoring a significant part or our city’s current culture.
But go ahead, keep thinking we all are about John Denver, cowboy hats and snow… it’ll keep some of the douches from moving here at least.
