DJ to Watch: PAX

Steve Blakley, aka Fury, has been a DJ and promoter in the electronic music scene for close to two decades. As a pro snowboarder in the early 1990’s, Blakley was able to put his earnings to use as a rave promoter in Denver. Never one to be just a spectator, he bought his own set of turntables and submerged himself in the hardcore techno sound. As the genre evolved, it transformed into jungle and Blakley became known as Denver’s, “King of Jungle.” Today our “DJ To Watch” is one who is a veteran in the scene but new to our area. Curious on his sound? You can hear the king’s roar with this 60-minute continuous mix below.
As Fury, Blakley kept a rigorous travel itinerary, rinsing out high profile venues from coast to coast. Despite this packed schedule, Blakley continued to expand Denver’s growing dance music community from the event production side. The hugely successful Rewind and Reload event series pulled in thousands of Drum & Bass enthusiasts from all over the world, and the weekly series Breakdown Thursdays became one of the longest running electronic music nights in the nation.
Today, regular Reload events continue to elevate Denver’s bass music scene and he finds himself alongside various Drum and Bass buds at countless club shows and festivals that sees him working with the likes of Bass Buds, Dillinja, and DieselBoy. Not to mention he’s making his way to the Bass Pod this spring at EDC Las Vegas. Lucky for us, Fury will be in our midst come June 29 with none other than Delta Heavy. As an Insomniac, Bassrush and now Rawhide resident, you are sure to see him soon at an upcoming show. Don’t miss your opportunity to catch this night filled with bass and good times; grab your tickets here.
